Onlinedatingsuccess only 45
I initiate contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself.
The potential matches that the site sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look at the age-range that those men desire, (usually 35-50) I often move past them, knowing I can’t compete with women in their desired range, even though many of those men are as much as 5-8 years older than me!
Now that we’ve established that online dating is a smart and necessary long-term strategy for women over 50, the question becomes, “What can you do better? Are you initiating contact with at least one man a day who states that he’s open to women your age?
” You think you’re doing everything you can possibly do. I don’t know the answer, but most people who say they’ve taken my advice have only taken a few pieces of my advice.
If their first wife was their age, like a college sweetheart or whatever, they probably feel entitled to a newer model, so to speak. It’s frustrating, not to mention depressing and more than a little humiliating.
Worse, they’re hypocritical about it, because they don’t understand why the vast majority of younger women won’t go for them.
And yet, the fastest growing segment for online dating is the 50 market. More people have computers and are aware of someone who found love online.
Since Im in very good shape physically it doesn’t seem a problem when I disclose my real age when someone makes initial contact.
Match is a much more age criteria oriented site than say POF.
