Dating In Your 50s Easy For Men Not So Much For Women!

After 9 years of marriage, my wife passed away from breast cancer, in August 1996. Being alone again and after a time of grieving. It was time to find a new woman for a lasting relationship. I found someone and we dated for a year. She was younger and very good looking.

I was faithful and loving in my marriage and in my other relationships. What I thought were nice men were actually liars, cheaters, and who were addicted to something…sex, drugs, and/or alcohol. Even at this age the immaturity level is astounding. Sorry that you’ve dealt with crocodiles. I’m not 50 yet and my kids have been out of home for some time having had them young, but I would never go out with an older man. You want someone who cares about you, not who sees you as an accessory.

It’s not something they see every day. But if two adults are mature enough and really want to be together nothing can stop them. Based on the figures Buunk and colleagues provided , I replotted their data superimposing the max and min age ranges defined by the half-your-age-plus-7 rule. Now we can see how well the rule corresponds with people’s reported acceptable ages. “They’re less likely to experience the same judgments and stereotypes if they decide to date an older man at this age.” I am sorry you have been treated poorly.

I have a couple of good friends like this, so I tried that too. In my experience, personal hygiene was in par with their weight. Well, this also should be excused because it is harder to keep large body clean than the tiny one, especially in hard to reach areas. It may well be that friendship first is a good rule, not having expectations for effort and not being used for validation allows you to set your value.

Women over 50 tend to find the prospect perverted and simply tiresome. 55AliveGuy…….Your post has certainly been enlightening, along with those of several other men here. I am sorry you’ve had such negative experiences. At least in Southern California, women in their 50s with some education and any remaining health and attractiveness only seek men who are retired millionaires.

However, now that I have my kids in my life, this won’t be the typical break up for sure. I’ll get through it like every other struggle I’ve had. 59 year old facing divorce and scared of what lies ahead, so lonely and sad, I cant visualise the future. What is the best Easter egg for dogs?

Dear Abby: I’m having an affair with a woman I met at the gym

I know it’s horrible but just so you BBW know and are aware of the intent and stay clean or clear of these users. Most women my age are not sexually attractive, youth, excitability and plump skin is sexy. I can’t go back to having my life back when I have had my chance. The best is to make do of whats available at hand.

My experience with dating in mid life has been shaped by some wonderful women , all withing a few years of my age. They have taught me that authenticity is the path to connection and without connection ,attraction fades quickly. This is how a great deal of the older dating world operates , on a lather- rinse- repeat cycle.

Chances are good that these women have older kids who are well on their way and don’t really want your input on their children. They know who they are and why their marriage failed and are looking for pure companionship. They probably won’t be in “awe” of you and hang on your every word. They won’t be interested in pumping your ego or making you feel young. Rather they will be someone who will have realistic expectations of you and be accepting of who you are at this time of your life. They will want to grow old with you and have an age appropriate relationship with you.

How Sleep Experts Get Through The Day When They’re Sleep-Deprived

No, I shouldn’t settle but neither should the ladies. When most of the people here are married or have a girlfriend, the odds go down. David….Evidently my statement wasn’t very clear.

I have been single most of my adult life. The last time I was with a woman, I was 38, I am now 58. Women in my life are pure fantasy.

It’s perfectly possible to have a relationship that doesn’t involve sex if, in fact, companionship is your true aim. It’s being loved by a partner that engenders confidence, in my experience. But finding such a connection takes time. Many women will relate to what you say. Because losing your virginity can feel like a Herculean task at any age.

I maintain that this post’s title assertion is utter BS. In fact, the reverse is true for women… IF they have worked at remaining some semblance of physical fitness and style. I have had a few long term relationships in my day, and I can honestly say I didn’t have an instant spark with any of the men I have come to know.
