Dating girl 13 years younger
Or, it could be caused by something as shallow and immediate as a woman not wanting anyone to mistake her date for her younger brother or, God forbid, her son.
Fortunately, more women are realizing the flaw in these beliefs.
OTOH, if they have no income and aren’t good looking, then they may be doomed to perpetual disappointment in online dating, unless they’re willing to date women who are at or below their league in looks and/or older than their stated age preferences. So in additon to lying about height and probably income (if listed), they’re lying about their age, too?
3) I’m actually trying to date age-appropriately, but the men who’ve shown interest to me at age 45 , look mid-50’s to mid-60’s to me. And trying to date younger and out of their league?
Are you saying I should ignore men’s stated preferences, Evan? 2) I only look at income if the guy is not great looking to determine whether or not how much he makes offsets his lack of looks. Now the curious thing to me is that a whole lot of not-so-good-looking men in their late 40s/50s are leaving their income unlisted, so my question is why are they leaving this important field blank?
If they’re making good money, they could potentially become better looking in most women’s eyes.
However, men’s preferences are shaped not just by looks but by fertility, which is why many have 35 as a cutoff.
Justin Lehmiller, a social psychologist in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University in his blog, the Psychology of Human Sexuality.Not sure that sits well with my desire for honesty in a partner if I can’t exhibit it myself. I’ve had a few dates with men stating they’re 5-7 to 6-6. So now I’m not considering guys under 6′, because he’s probably really 5-9, which I do find appealing.It seems that the under-6-ft guys are definitely adding several inches to their height. 6) So men with average to sub-par looks aren’t listing their income, which could potentially offset their lack of looks or age, are sending me generic cut & paste intro messages, which shows me they really didn’t bother reading my profile. They need to know their league and/or up their online game if they want to play out of their league.I can’t say it’s a hardship filtering through them to find the ones worth getting to know.
I’m not looking for a “relationship” but “fun” so this works for me. But if a woman is serious about marriage and family, I don’t know if the free sites are conducive for that.
Hmmm…Very timely topic as I’ve recently decided to try online dating. 1) Even though my listed target ages are 38-53, men well below that target are contacting me.
