Dating women with baggage
I met the love of my life online several months ago.
We'd both been online for years, met lots of dates for coffee, and didn't feel we'd ever meet the "one".
Yes, it can make for a simpler life if there are no ex wives to negotiate with, no child support to pay, no illnesses or emotional issues to deal with, but if you are a certain age, hopefully you have lived your life and experienced as much as possible. You're better off alone than with someone who wants to be intimate too soon.2.
A partner who's only looking for someone who looks like a model.
This is the tail wagging the dog, in terms of why men date.
Since men seem to be driving the over 50 dating world, in terms of the numbers and availability of what women term, good men versus good women, it would be helpful for men to realize the terrific possibilities with women closer to their age.
I've known lots of boomer men who were still trying, but mostly failing, to extend their casual sex years beyond their physical capabilities. At 67, I'm having the best sex ever, and it's with a 63-year-old woman. It's not that men aren't interested in relationships, but rather that there are so many more choices for men than women, particularly online, that a man can easily become like a kid in a candy store with a bag of dimes, wanting to sample every sweet.
And guys, if you're truly looking for your soulmate, don't date someone you'd be ashamed to bring home to your parents.
Conversely, do you really want to be with someone who finds you sexy but could care less about the person inside? Be flexible and you just might be pleasantly surprised.3.
A partner I'd be ashamed to take home to my family.
What drives men over 50 to pursue women is as primal as social. Over 50 men are able to start second families, albeit with younger women, but not the other way around.
My point isn't what's fair or unfair, but rather that many boomer men date younger women exclusively, relegating a vast number of incredible boomer women to wonder if or when men will ever "get it" when it comes to what they're missing in terms of dating, sex and relationships with women their age.
