An article in the Huffpost even went so far as to encourage women to go after much younger men, can you imagine if someone wrote an article like that encouraging 50yo men to go after 20something women? That author would be attacked immediately. The odds suck for all of us I guess…as to needing a man or needing a woman I hope all of us don’t NEED a man or a woman, but a partner to share life with really does make life better. I’m a bit late here, I’m a 5’4″ 125lb 57 year old woman that still sports a bikini. 1 long-term relationship since my divorce that was for approx. I’d like to find a man within 5-7 years of my age either direction that loves sex like I do and wants a relationship.

I will now never give up on finding a man I can happily love and who can love me back. I would prefer a man of my own age this time. Where the heck are all you good guys who are still single in the 50’s range? AM……I don’t have expectations of perfection at all, but I still have had crappy luck with men. I don’t put anyone down, I am attractive, and I don’t have a weight problem.

For the time being I just have to be patient until the time is right. Most people think I’m early to mid 40s. I’m not attracted physically to women my age.

Feeling good about yourself is really the most important thing, because you are probably going to be alone if you find yourself alone at 50. The stats are frightening – 12% of single women find sexual partners – it goes down to 4% at 60. We can all be positive and optimistic , but psychologists suggest practicing alternative forms of sexuality and some openly advocate partner sharing.

What Do Older Men Really Want When It Comes to Dating?

He makes more time for his interests, but he’s still capable of making together time. I am sorry you have been treated poorly. For the great quality ladies who just want love too, it’s also tough for us.

I can honestly tell you that I don’t know one relationship like that. I think you are working with a small sample. Last year, Rae spoke with The Post about her reality show and how she’s constantly underestimated because she looks like a young girl. In his clip, Swygart revealed that he reached out to Rae with flowers after seeing the first season of her show.

The last 7 years of our relationship I took care of him. We traveled all over the world having a wonderful time and life. We worked hard and had 2 beautiful children, now morally grounded adults. Maybe some women put sex first in a relationship, but as a majority I think not.

Men did not create this situation. I really hope you find someone who will respect you and value you for who you are. Women in their 50s don’t want to work, they don’t want a man to work full time plus if at all , they don’t want to deal with his children, all they want to do is be pampered and travel. I have dated a number of women many of them widows not divorced who are my contemporaries at 55 and as old ss 60. I really don’t think it’s rocket science.

As a woman I believe the boundaries we had and the expectations we had about men needs some tweeking. Men are not bad and evil for the most part. In fact they are for the most part good people that see and feel and experience the world differently than woman. No person, man or woman wants to feel on line pressure to do anything they are not used to…so here in lies personal thresholds that may need some readjustment and thoughtful consideration.

We seen long ago how life could get lonely in our older ages and were looking to extend our family with that as “one” of the reasons. Even then, what we always ran into was the selfishness, or lack of desire to be better than yesterday. Most women start gaining weight, and then want to guilt or shame you for wanting to be fit healthy and be with someone fit and healthy. A lot of women nowadays that aren’t friendly at all, and not to mention that many of them do have some kind of a mental illness to begin with. I am far from desperate, I am not materialistic, and I can hold an intelligent conversation.

You feel like you could be a target.

I saw her recently and we worked together quite well. I think it helps that I no longer care as much about what she thinks beyond common courtesy. David…..I have been posting here the last few years off and on. Any posts with my name are all mine. I don’t come here too often anymore.

The real world counts

I hate how our society is set up for dating. I have come across a lot of great women, that I know that she and I would be great together. I am head over heels for and she and I have a ton of the same interests in life.

They’ll love the confidence you’ve gained from experience, too.

I think women are attracted to me but I am introverted. I abhor dating sites and social media and wish for the days when everyone wasn’t buried in their phones. Sometimes, I feel painfully alone, and other times my solitude is pure bliss. I’m just an idiot who want company, to feel something again.
