An article in the Huffpost even went so far as to encourage women to go after much younger men, can you imagine if someone wrote an article like that encouraging 50yo men to go after 20something women? That author would be attacked immediately. The odds suck for all of us I guess…as to needing a man or needing a woman I hope all of us don’t NEED a man or a woman, but a partner to share life with really does make life better.

How to Gain Confidence, Attract High-Quality Men and Create Lasting Love FAST

For some reason, it is hard to strike a conversation with women in 50’s. I guess they are judgmental and appear to be suspicious about everything (too good to be true?). Or simply, they are looking for younger and or needy men. I have tried to invest my time in seriously dating few women close to my age over past three years but find them turn quirky after couple of dates.

Potential Health Benefits of Dating for Older Adults

Seems like a contradiction and very immature on her part. It is important to exercise both to keep them fit the best you can. By now a lot of us have medical issues, some of which may hold us back from doing certain things. I don’t think that makes us too old to find love again, a love that can carry us into old age. Percentage-wise I think there are a lot more risk taking men than women. You may get lucky to find some danger seekers out there, but don’t count on it.

DaveW……I easily fit into your criteria and I am attractive, intelligent, funny, and respectful. I can easily hold a conversation and I am genuinely interested in who I am talking with. At almost 52 it has been no picnic trying to find a man who is secure within himself and trusting enough to really want a relationship anymore.
