40 and dating
In online situations, women say they want desperately to meet a nice guy like me, but never answer my response to their profile. They have a lot of dating options, they’re building their careers, and there isn’t a clear urgency to settle down.
I am trying to remain positive, but two things are really bothering me. Once a guy crosses 35, however, he (theoretically) tends to get more serious.
One, that younger women are no longer interested in dating men who are even just slightly (3-5 years) older than them and sometimes want to date men 5-10 years younger then them. Alas, the women with whom he wants to get serious are 27-34.
Two, women seem to be content in the fact that they are independent and self-sufficient and have a career, family and friends that fulfills them and don’t seem to be interested in truly finding a relationship. This gives men time to court, fall in love, travel together, move in, get engaged, and enjoy a few years of childless marriage before starting a family.
On-line dating has many benefits for the over 40’s.
You can carry out your searches and send messages whenever suits you, fitting dating into your already busy schedule.
The over 40’s dating scene is vibrant and exciting, with more and more people heading on-line to find a new partner every single day.
The fact is that those singles over 40 and looking for a date have probably been married and have grown-up kids.
They’re looking for something different from their next relationship, and are more active in finding the right person.
But I agreed to see him again, two days later, at his place.
We were going to spend some time hanging out, but before I knew it, one thing led to another and it was on.
