70 year old women dating younger men spot dating artifact top commentators closed
It’s the built-in folly of online sites: you are only defined by your age, in bold type right next to your user name.I am a youthful, fit and free-spirited woman and to be honest, I’m not ready for the retired 65-70 year old guys.Ive asked some of the guys my age who have contacted me as an “exception” about their success with their age range search.It is often 10-20 years younger than them and these are very “average” appearing guys .I initiate contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself.
In all likelihood, despite your efforts, I’m betting your profile can be better, your photos can be better, your responses to men could be better, your initial emails to men could be better, and your choices in men could be better. My recommendation – if you haven’t done it already – is to go through every word in Finding the One Online. You don’t have to quit online dating to meet men in real life.
I agree with everything Evan says and based on your advice Evan Ive tweaked my profile with your suggestions e.g. Most importantly I agree your photos have to be great.
I chose to adjust my age down a few years since I was being eliminated by what seems like half the men my age when I put my real age.
I’m not ashamed of my age and hiding it seems phony.
When I meet men in person in my daily life, I get a better response because they see the whole me, hear my voice, get a sense of what I’m like, all before they know how old I am, meaning I can be defined by other qualities.
I assume the reason for this is they can get younger women to respond to them, so why would they go for me when they have a chance with the 45 year-old version of me?
