No HORROR stories to report,but Im sure there are some out there! that's ANOTHER challenge because I'm living on a military base and can't come and go without my military daughter, son-in-law or granddaughter ... can you imagine dating with your granddaughter as chaparone? But, [there's always a BUT] there are MANY I REPEAT MANY Quality Ladies on here who do not intend to meet anyone, EVER! They are Scared Little Rabbits after reading all the articles in the paper,watching the News,etc.Op,i just typed in the words,'Over 60' into the Thread Search box and a LOT of Threads popped up..... I sent a message to a woman, she's 63, from "meet me", that I was interested in meeting her, she replied that she would like to meet me too. I have sent about 30 e mails in an attempt to "meet" and most do not even reply.Here's one for you to take a look at.....but,there's lots and lots re: Over 60's :) Posts14240115Happy reading ! But our busy schedule keeps us from our "first meeting". Out of the loop for so long and stumbling around makes for some challenges. people may be more interested in jumping on the NEW band wagon (or thread! otherwise, I don't exactly "date" any more because I've met all the single, straight men in my home town ... The few that I have met where nice,honest,and respectful.
There simply aren’t many half-decent men out there.
I don’t know why, but my friends and I suspect that most older men don’t come out of a relationship unless there is another woman waiting in the wings.
Or they pick up someone very quickly in a bar or club. I have a great social life and lots of friends but I’d really like to share that with someone special. So I texted him to say: ‘I know you’re coming from a long way away so can I arrange the spare room for you tonight or would you prefer a local B&B?
So if someone gives you a tiny bit of attention, it doesn’t matter what age you are, you still get that ‘high’ we all remember from our younger days. ’ I was shocked when he got really abusive and nasty. His last text said: ‘You’re more stupid than I thought you were.’ And he was right.
I made a very stupid mistake when I first started internet dating. It was a really stupid thing to do, so now I’m much more careful.
I’d seen David’s profile online and we’d exchanged a few emails. When you’ve come out of a long-term relationship, your confidence can hit rock bottom. I was so out of practice, but we had a great time and it boosted my confidence.
He sounded perfectly pleasant so we met up for a date in Manchester. For 17 years my sex life wasn’t up to much, so it was nerve-racking when I first got into bed with someone else. The first man I slept with after my husband was someone I met through a tennis club. I knew I didn’t want a long-term relationship with him — he wasn’t my type — but I did find him attractive, so we booked a proper date. Everyone who posts their picture online will have used one from at least ten or 15 years ago. I’ve turned up to several dates where I’ve walked into a restaurant, seen the man I’m supposed to be meeting, but he looks more like his father.
I was giving him some advice on property at his house and he asked: ‘So when are we going to have sex? It was funny because when we did go to bed, I told him I was shy, so I got undressed while he wasn’t in the room. I’m sure there must be men out there who think that log fires, red wine and walking along a beach are totally irresistible but nearly everyone of my age writes an online profile like this. Write something different, such as: ‘I love climbing mountains!
’ One plus side of internet dating is your friends needn’t get involved in your love life, because that’s a recipe for disaster. I’ve got the perfect guy for you — but he’s not quite ready yet.’ When I asked why not, she said: ‘Well, his wife’s not quite dead yet.’ Often, I’ve seen a guy’s photo and thought: ‘Wow! Some women I know go on these sites for the same reason men do, but that’s not my style. Most of the men I’ve met have dressed smartly — that’s probably an age thing.
’ But when you email them, you get a message back saying: ‘This man is not available.’ Or you get an email, but as soon as you ask for something like a phone number you never hear back. One friend met a gorgeous man online who said he was a TV presenter. I’m looking for someone to share dates and go to dinner parties with. Sadly, once men hit the 60 mark, they tend to go downhill a bit looks-wise. You can’t let it put you off leading a full life, though.
They seemed to get on well via email, but whenever it came to meeting up, there was always a problem.
