Most people who say they’ve taken my advice have only taken a few pieces of my advice.Which is like saying you’re going on a diet by cutting out sugar, but continuing to eat large portions of fried foods.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 .Since Im in very good shape physically it doesn’t seem a problem when I disclose my real age when someone makes initial contact.
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’m guessing they check out my profile, see my age, and probably read no further.
Even if I am within their desired range, I still don’t get much of a response.
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.
