The potential matches that the site sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look at the age-range that those men desire, (usually 35-50) I often move past them, knowing I can’t compete with women in their desired range, even though many of those men are as much as 5-8 years older than me!
In other words, knowingly sends me matches that are probably not realistic for me to pursue.
When I have emailed some of those guys, I never hear back.
I’m guessing they check out my profile, see my age, and probably read no further.
Now, as we reach our 50s and 60s, the situation is somewhat more complicated.
To get a view into the male mind after 60, I sat down with dating coach, Lisa Copeland for a quick chat.
For women who have been trying to find that illusive “special someone” for a while, this may seem like an impossible question to answer.
After all, for most of our lives, men were simple creatures.
I initiate contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself.Even if I am within their desired range, I still don’t get much of a response.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?According to Lisa, single men over 60 want women who are in touch with their feminine side. Lisa mentions that this is often the case, but, not for the reasons that many of us assume.
Men are not always looking for a younger body to cuddle up next to.Lisa Copeland is a fabulous woman, with a passion for helping women to find quality men.
