Men dating over 50
Far too many women over 50 are unhappy with the dating world, especially the Internet dating world.
(I don't date men, so I don't know, but assume many men are unhappy with it as well.) That's too bad, because the online dating experience has opened up possibilities to meet people you never would have met before, and if some of those people are creepy or boring or not what they seem to be, here's a news flash: That was true back in the days when you only met people at work, at school, at the gym, at bars, or the dread introduced to you by friends.
I am always stunned by how most people just don't listen, and how far one can get simply by listening.
Most women over 50 have been in relationships with men who don't care much about what they have to say. I've done lots of cool things, worked for Tom Hanks and for governors and CEOs and climbed mountains and such.
When it comes to dating and relationships, men and women’s experiences aren’t so different…unfortunately. Even if you don’t see yourself in his description, I hope just knowing the crazy dating gauntlet guys go through will help you have compassion and understanding. Do you see yourself or anyone you know in LMs description of the women he’s meeting?
And most of all, open you up to guys like LM who may not dazzle you on a date, but would make a fantastic partner or husband. Would you email him if you knew what you know about him now? And SHARE THIS with your friends via Facebook…they need this info too, right?
All I want, to use an old fashioned term, is a girlfriend.
OK, Ladies, you want the honest, real, unvarnished truth about what a commitment minded, nice, cute, professional, divorced 54 year old man really wants from you? She’s a much better writer than we have on the guy’s side of things!
You also know that really understanding men is a key to finally writing your own grownup love story. LM really says it best, so here is what he has to say after reading my Femi-Type series. As a guy she’s been a tremendous help in terms of understanding and relating to women in the 50 age group.
Whatever it is, apparently I don’t have enough of it. In thinking about it, I’m not even sure when they say that, it’s the real issue.
These women have been emotionally abused, disappointed, betrayed and they are just so hard wired to not get hurt again. By setting unattainable standards (fantasy man) they ensure they will never again let somebody close enough to them to hurt them again.
