You are exactly what I am looking for…..down to earth, sensible, respectful, and looking to have something special with someone. I’m being kind because you stand apart from most of the guys I’ve seen and heard about. When women say “details of my divorce aren’t really important,” it means she cheated on her husband. It’s over for you, you’re too damaged, not too old.

Can a forty-year-old man protect a forty-year-old woman?

Viagra can be around $75.00 a pill. I told my man friend to do that and he looked at me like i insulted him. Dude get that fixed if you want to have fun !!

My ex did some of it with me for the first 10 years of marriage, but it was clearly a chore for her, not enjoyment. I did it with both kids then, and now the kids have moved on and we found to have nothing in common anymore. I am out and about, but I don’t care for the bar scene, and online dating has been a waste of my time and money.

What You Need to Know About Dating a 50-Year-Old Man

Debbie, I don’t think it will much fun dating from the other side either. At 60, I have re entered single life through no choice of my own. My 44 year old wife informed me a few months ago that she was leaving.

Just because they say they “prefer” it doesn’t mean these men get them. The great majority of young women–not “younger”, young–will not have anything to do with much-older men. I am very attractive and have not too many prospects.

I thought I had a good profile, nevertheless little interest. So I created a fake female profile to see if I could uncover how many dudes I was up against and maybe glean some insight from their profiles. My fictitous woman was looking for a guy in in my age range (late 40s & 50s), same geography, height/weight proportionate, etc. This is why a man desiring and dating a woman yrs his junior views it as no big deal. I’m pushing 60, I’m healthy, vibrant, and in shape.

I don’t come here too often anymore. The problem is that every time I think I am getting close to what I want, the man spazzes out. I am getting so tired of trying, and so tired of being hurt. When I love someone I give everything…..and it is becoming too much to deal with the rejection anymore. Heck….I am not perfect by any means, but I am honest and respectful, and I try to be a good person…putting others first, often before myself. I am funny, attractive, and intelligent.

Get asked out by younger men, men my age, older men. But I seem to have a broken picker. And, I am really so afraid of being hurt again. My divorce was unexpected and really blind-sided me. And, there were a couple of difficult post-divorce dating experiences and now I’m very skittish and I bolt too fast.

But stating men have it easier isn’t always the case. Seems women are angry, maybe not always, or fearful? Smart phones and way to many creeps and bad guys out there? I’m confused where to start anymore. That’s extremely sad and I understand your fear. It’s very unfortunate that this is the case with a lot of men our age….they are afraid to get burned again.

It’s the closest thing to heaven we will ever have on earth, beating out by far our feelings after the 197th Yoga class, buying the new sportscar, or getting the degree at 47. When you are close to someone you love with your entire heart and soul you aren’t even thinking about all the non-essential stuff in life, and most things are indeed non-essential. The world has changed and so many are self-centered and materialistic. Being with someone special doesn’t have the sacredness it used to. It’s too easy to move on and find someone else when situations are not quite right.

I truly want someone I can bond with, someone I am attracted to body, mind, and soul, someone I can have fun with and share my life with. I want a guy who actually wants to be loved, because I have so much to give. Turned 50 in December, though never fat – had gained a few extra pounds and always been muscular. I had already quit drinking and lost 25 pounds prior to my birthday and wanted to kick off a year of recovery to myself.
