It’s difficult to meet large numbers of men that way, but I’m starting to feel like my chance of making a non age-biased connection with a guy is only out in the real world.And the real-world opportunities can be few and far between. I can’t disagree with anything you’ve observed about online dating and age. So here are the facts: Older men have more options than older women (online and in real life) because they can usually date somewhat younger.More unhappy couples are getting divorced when the kids leave the house. We also know that dating online does not mean that you’re not dating men you meet in real life. If you meet a guy through friends, at the market, at a concert, great.Having a profile on isn’t going to keep you from doing that.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 .I’m guessing they check out my profile, see my age, and probably read no further.
When I have emailed some of those guys, I never hear back.Older men have a huge blind spot when it comes to age.They refuse to even consider women their own age, even if she’s fit and attractive.Worse, they’re hypocritical about it, because they don’t understand why the vast majority of younger women won’t go for them.And yet, the fastest growing segment for online dating is the 50 market. More people have computers and are aware of someone who found love online.
