It is DNA-hardwired into women over the millennia. As but one example I read, women are often attracted to men with tattoos because they believe they have higher testosterone than other men, thus they will make better children. Conversely, and here’s the rub, they also believe they do not make as good life partners as some other men.
I want someone close to my age but would consider a few years younger or older. I figured I was still young enough, had a great job, was fit, healthy, not bad looking and might be able to find someone. I focussed mainly on the profiles of the women on the sites and was only really interested in women from their late thirties through to mid to late forties. I didn’t want someone who wanted more children, and I also didn’t want someone who only wanted me for my money or job status. Mid 50s, find women of all ages attractive, started chatting w/ a woman in her mid 60s at Costco who I may have asked out if not for the ring. Being tall and friendly helps, but I’m not perfect.

The sooner you accept it the less soul crushing rejection and heartache you will have to endure searching for something that doesn’t exist. I am far from desperate, I am not materialistic, and I can hold an intelligent conversation. I am attractive and height/weight proportionate. I don’t have these highfallutin expectations that a lot of women 50 and over have. I just want a nice, kind, intelligent man to share life with.

I take care of myself and value health. I already have another man wanting a serious relationship with me who is 10 years younger than me. But that scares me since he has a young child.
I am finding that men around 50 can’t be bothered with honesty or respect, if I can find a suitable man at all. At 50 I just want a nice guy my age in reasonable shape to share my life with. Of course I want for the man to be able to support himself, geek2geek co but his money and status is not important to me.

Where is a genuine, kind, affectionate person with values supposed to go for a chance at finding a life partner?

For many women, it’s more satisfying to serve themselves alone, than to participate with a man where sex is concerned. They still remain with a man in a relationship and try to please him and hope for mutual companionship, emotional and practical support. Men may not be able to function, and women may not want to function. So if personality is not the main thing in a relationship, the conversation needs to be had, before deciding how the relationship should develop. First, try spending time as companions, go to different situations together and see how compatible you are in that way. I am 58 years old and think that the reason many men seek younger woman is that the perception is that as woman get older they have less interest in sex.
