49 and dating 35 year old women
Or, are you better off with someone who actually gets your references and doesn’t think Watergate is the latest brand of bottled H2O?
What challenges do you face when dating people older or younger, and how do you cope?
I have tried a combination of online dating, speed dating, professional singles events, volunteering, happy hours etc. I thought that online dating would be great since you are essentially pre-screening people for dates.
I have found that I get no responses from any women online and the only women who respond to my ad are usually much older and don’t meet any of my criteria outlined in my profile.
To find the answers, we sat down with some boomers as well as relationship experts to determine just how important age really is. I’ve dated younger men in the past, and they were very impressed that I had “grown-up things” like good china and silver and could cook a great meal.
All my friends are shocked and tell me he's taking advantage of my vulnerability and that I should find someone nearer my own age.In online situations, women say they want desperately to meet a nice guy like me, but never answer my response to their profile. They have a lot of dating options, they’re building their careers, and there isn’t a clear urgency to settle down.I am trying to remain positive, but two things are really bothering me. Once a guy crosses 35, however, he (theoretically) tends to get more serious.It’s hard, but I keep telling myself she’s out there. I have a hard time finding a man my age who wants to go out with someone who’s actually his age—like me. Culbreth: It can be very flattering to date someone younger than you are.People want to date someone fun, and many of us think someone younger is going to be more fun.
