I sucks, at my age, to be “held responsible” to some degree for all of the mistreatment women may have received before I was in the picture. It is very sad to me that one judges another based on money and material possessions, instead of what is inside the heart and soul of a person. Mark……that may be true overall, but there are still a few of us women out there who value a man for who he truly is. Gentlemen, here’s some more cheerful news for those of you who are still fantasizing about marital bliss, if the sobering divorce statistics weren’t enough to cool your ardor. 55AliveGuy…….Your post has certainly been enlightening, along with those of several other men here. I am sorry you’ve had such negative experiences.
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. My last relationship was with a man who had a heart condition and wasn’t rich.
Important Dos And Don’ts Of Dating After 60
I’m 48, recently divorced (2 months?) after a 24 year marriage, and I am single for the first time since I was 14. I have been getting sex in some form since my early teens and living without it right now is super tough! What I’m finding though is that I’m able to do more for others than I ever was before. For example, I’m writing this when normally I would never try and help someone out. If this helps someone, then I’m glad.
You are to old to have kids that young anyway. Now that your fascination with your young thang is over. You’re looking for an older mature woman to help raise them. I don’t deal with men with young kids…especially grandpa figures.
Not a younger woman but in his mind a woman of more status. When she confronted him on the cheating he threw it back on her like you are fat etc. She ended leaving him and really had no shortage of men who came her way. Right after she left him she ended up having a short fling with a 32 year old which started out as a hook up kind of thing but he ended up sort of learning some grown up skills from her.

I’ve heard women effectively say that they want a strong, manly man who will be do whatever they want them to do. They want a husband who’ll control them and tell them what to do but at the same time they want to control their husband and at the same time they want an equal partner. helpful site This is a deep emotional need for some women and some know it doesn’t make any sense and others know but rationalize it. They have a nice husband but end up having an affair with a truck driver or biker dude that orders her around in the bedroom because it is thrilling for her.
I am just not interested in women that way, and I like what I can have with a man. I dated attractive women a few years either side of my age. That was so funny and yet wise and true. The only way to find yourself in a “great” relationship is to love and look out for yourself first. If you do that, you’ll be happy with or without a partner.
Sometimes I feel like part of it is my age, that people might think that I’m either gullible or a target financially. But I don’t want to be a nurse, a purse, or worse. I’m actually speaking with somebody tonight that I met on Coffee Meets Bagel who seems pretty normal.
I am attractive with a nice figure, funny, smart, and affectionate. I don’t need a man for money or status, nor do I want a man years younger than I am. I work with the public and I dress and conduct myself professionally. Not one man has shown any interest. I assure you, there are still some good women out there, me being one of them. I am not materialistic but like nice things when I can afford them, but I am not out there specifically looking for a rich guy.
Don’t Discipline the Children
It is not fair to judge someone you don’t even know by what some other guy did or didn’t do. I’m a 60 year old man and primarily date women from 50 – 60ish. What I seem to be encountering are women who are angry and disappointed with men.
