Dating After 60: What Do Single Women Over 60 Really Want?

I thought men would appreciate this. I am trying very hard to understand men and give them the respect they want, but it is a very difficult situation, especially when they can’t afford me the same courtesy. Fifteen years later i entered into what i thought would be a long term live together relationship ending in marriage but unfortunately she left me for a wealthier man 11 years her senior (he’s 59 ) . I’m a simple hard working woman who appreciates a hard working man, that doesn’t need the glam to be happy.

When she’s older: Does age gap matter in a relationship?

In the meantime it would be nice too have someone to talk with instead of only the girls at Mcdonalds. I don’t think online dating is not good for senior citizens. More and more senior people are looking for companionship online now.

The list of questions and doubts can go on and on. You sound like a great catch to me, and you aren’t invisible. When I lived up north I had an Italian American boyfriend, a wonderful guy. Sadly he passed away and I moved south to be with my family. I have nothing in common with the men down here.

Best of luck to everyone, hope you find exactly what you are looking for. Yep, even a 83 year old retired Baptist minister stated that after menopause the only thing they want is money and that they are no longer interested in the physical side. There are to many narcissists men looking for a “mommy,” to take care of them! Only good thing were 2 beautiful grown children doing very well for themselves.

Yes, trust is important to everyone, no matter how old they are. But for a retiree on a fixed income, who has heard countless stories of peers being taken advantage of both online and in the real world, trust takes on a special significance. Many seniors really are looking for companionship and nothing more. Some are seeking someone to have dinner with, some are looking for someone to travel with them, others are looking for someone to share their favorite activities.

But even though I am trying to date may own age group they all seem to be very intent on having a man who doesnt need sex . One of my women friends told me they need a connection. After 5 dates and 300 questions, all boxes ticked she still didnt have a connection……..

The more I got to know her and after I started to take down the blinders. I realized that she had a ton of issues beyond my control. Knowing how difficult it is for me, to just get a date with someone. I knew it was best for me to end it with this girl. I was able to be with one last person in Jun 2000. In the year 2000, I was 38 and for 20 years, I have been trying to find a new woman, to have a relationship with.

I can’t figure out what more a guy could want in a woman. I can only hope to find a nice partner the old fashioned way, but so far it hasn’t been easy. MDs are very clear that women after menopause change a lot include no longer having the desire – it is disheartening but is the big reason why us 50 something men are forced to go younger. Women who leave a long term relationship for no other reason than that they’re bored are foolish and selfish.

I have male friends…I don’t need a ‘friend’. I want and desire a ‘hot babe’ who is a ‘beep’ in bed. If she is my age and can reminisce about toys from the 1960’s…that’s a plus. This is coming from a younger woman who accidently stumbled upon this site.

I have wasted my time with other dating sites who could only suggest members living three hours drive or more away – a long way to go for that first cup of coffee. Every time I have thought about online dating or the like I have backed away because I do not have the confidence to progress it. Maybe not to everyone, but certainly to about everyone I’ve encountered. On-line dating for Seniors is very hard.

Nobody I run into can believe it, and I have even passed for 38. With that said, I’d still prefer to date someone around my age. I tried to get to know someone who was 40 when I was 49, and his immaturity blew me away. I am hoping that someone around my age will have at least some of the same things in common. 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.

Its just that many men over 50 still like sex – maybe even daily. 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.
