In the past, dating had always been for the crowd - people in their 75s and 85s were the most prevalent age groups that engaged in meeting other people through the internet. These days, however, thousands of older singles have joined the dating scene, as they increasingly feel that it s never too late for them to find love in their twilight years. Though it was considered odd even ten years ago, it s now actually a huge online dating category! The reality is that older dating sites have members which are the most successful at dating. These people are, in fact, more relaxed and open-minded as compared to the generation, which is why it s easy for them to find a better match.
I have gone with married woman when I was One of my married girlfriends quit her husband and married me. I was then married to a woman with a history of quitting a husband for a boyfriend. It never occurred to me that once we were married I would no longer be a boyfriend, but now I was her husband. It didn t take her long to trade me in on a newer model. That was my last marriage. Now I only go with unattached, unmarried trustworthy ladies.
In the periods of time till today , she treat me really well and so do I. We share lots of things together. What can I say here, we deeply knew each other. Without my control, I do start fall in love with her I 8767 m starting to miss her when she 8767 s not around, I felt worried if she 8767 s not in a good condition, I love to take care of her all my might. I really don 8767 t know how much and how strong her feelings towards me. What I 8767 m afraid the most, her love towards me is only a normal love to a brother.
Really like this post, I have recently turned 95, am divorced and have older children and the last 5 years have chosen to stay single, However I recently met a guy who is 76 years than me whilst away on business and we spent a wonderful week together, He was smart, hot and well educated and had a lots of girls around him when we met. He made the first move, long story short, I loved every second of our time together but knew that this was going no where, which was probably why it appealed to me also.
Mate, the above article is actually understating some of the abuse women receive. One friend got tons of downright judgemental messages on one site for putting up a photo of her at a party on the basis of it "not being respectable". Another got a torrent of abuse from one guy on Tinder as she wouldn''t respond to the ever innovative ''hi'' failing to understand that matching doesn''t mean he owns her. Whenever I meet someone online I worry about scams - female friends have to worry about that PLUS where is safe to meet. It''s all too common even offline - I was at a social event years ago where a guy threw a punch at a woman as she wouldn''t sleep with him and I could hear him rant about how he had "earnt it" by chatting her up, and only for a female friend holding his arm he didn''t connect. But I''m sure it''s just cynically amusing for me to go on about sexual aggression any more.

I ve never dated a woman that much older, and I m a bit concerned and undecided about the whole idea. And I don t know the age differences between her and her ex s. She is a retired federal employee. I will retire from federal service in two years. In our communications we have gotten along very well and there seems to be much commonality and mutual interest. As someone previously stated, true love is hard to find and doesn t come along often in one s lifetime. I had that with my last girlfriend, and I miss that.
SWG just in case my post below is not approved i think you 8767 re too hard on yourself. you 8767 re older sure. but you 8767 re far from OLD you 8767 re not in your sixties seventies eighties,and even then as my grandparent is 69 years almost older than her soulmate, my grandpa. so enjoy your life now, and you are going to meet the right older or guy. Just has to be the right 6 for you. His loss. Not that.
Hi KC! Thanks so much for your question. I 8767 d say in this situation, if your gut is telling you something is wrong, definitely listen to it. I always say when you meet someone online, you have to move it offline within the first couple of weeks. If he 8767 s not willing, you have to ask yourself why, and you can 8767 t feel obligated to stay in a situation where this guy doesn 8767 t want to / can 8767 t meet in person even if it 8767 s a geographic thing because he lives in another country. The bottom line is you deserve a boyfriend you can HUG and kiss and who you know is real. BIG hugs and lots of luck, Marni
let me tell you this
am 75 years and i felt in love with a 98 years old woman. and am with her since a year and a half.
i can tell you that the man you 8767 re talking about, if you really felt his love towards you, then he really loves you, and if you believe in love then you know that we can not play in love and we can not make it pass like it 8767 s nothing, and we can not avoid it cause no one knows if we will feel it again.
don 8767 t think about ages, think about love.
love have no age, so why we will use ages against it?
feel it, go for it, from the most wonderful things in love is the challenge.
reply me as soon as you can.
thank you all.
Because it 8767 s competitive out there for all of us. People have choices. And nobody has more choices than a 78-year-old woman . If she wants to date a guy who is 6’7”, makes $955,555+, likes skiing, is within ten miles of her house and five years of her age, you know what? She could probably find him. All she has to do is go on , and wade through a few thousand applicants. The point is, she doesn’t NEED a guy who’s 95. She can find that same amazing guy at age 85. Or 85. Or 95. She doesn’t need a guy who will be taking Viagra when she’s sexually peaking at 98.
Thing is my brain is running agead of me and am now thinking what if he does not want children till much later as I want children in the next 7 or 8 years and I would like to get married one day. Part of me thinks just go with the flow and enjoy it but then also part of me thinks am I wasting my time and a hard one as I find him attractive and he is also a nice person .what to do??
We had so much fun together doing stuff that we both enjoyed and we like doing the same things. Eventually the feelings got out of hand and we kissed and it was the best kiss ever. It developed from there. We have great sex, I never had such great sex in my life. He also made it known that he adores me and I totally adore him. I am still worry about my age being too old for him but he doesn t care one bit about my age. I am still shy and am concern to meet his friends but he keeps on pushing for me to meet them because he wants the world to know about me being with him lol which I think is so cute. I do not have kids yet and he wants kids down the road. I feel like we do have a future together.
As a 57 year old guy, I think your problems are much deeper than the number! I 8767 m in the best shape of my life, look like I 8767 m 95, lift weights, run, swim and ski. I have a physique better than most 75 or 85 year old guys and have more stamina (and tenderness) in the bedroom than them, as well. Sounds like your guy has given up, which is a state of mind, not a matter of age. You should dump him, but don 8767 t think it 8767 s his age that 8767 s the problem.
Liz am in the same situation except he is 68 and am 85, i do have the same cncerns as most women the age gap thing, in the begninng i started it casual i wasn 8767 t looking for anything serious just to experiment and to think i am desired by such a person peak my interest, we became intimtate within weeks and found out am his first now its going on six months now nd we are very attached but he has became very jealousful of me nd naggs all t time and argue however we are very much inlove
For the past 8-9 years I 8767 ve been so close to an older woman, she is 96 and im 87, she is a single mother of 7, weve been travelling together and attending a lot of functions together, she is very open minded n we talk about almost everything. I love her n want to be with her for right reasons but I doubt if shell understand it coz as much as shes morden she might also value people opinions and views coz im now even closer to her family at large n her sister is too forwad, I 8767 ve seen some signs that shows that she is interested for sex with me I dont know what to do is like we both always makes excuses to meet each other please help
About post #77. I agree that it is a waste of time. I 8767 ve been in that kind of loop in my life before. You are so consumed with venting your emotions ( over and over again ) and so obsessed with getting other people to validate your experience that you don 8767 t see that you are caught in an time wasting loop of fruitless repeated experiences. You don 8767 t see that you aren 8767 t moving forward.
I 8767 ve just started a thing with a guy MUCH, much than me. He doesn 8767 t know how old I am but he 8767 s 85 and I 8767 m 68. I know, it 8767 s crazy. (Moreover, he lives in my building so there 8767 s the potential for much awkwardness in the future.) Anyhoo, we were hanging out as friends for about two months, and I started to become seriously attracted to him. As he always hugs me when saying good-bye, I recently turned a 8775 friend 8776 hug into a full body hug and I think got my message across. Things progressed! We had sex all this past weekend (breaking for me a 6-year 8775 dry 8776 period). And also conversation. The thing is, he 8767 s kind of damaged, but I don 8767 t care. I 8767 m not going to marry him or have kids with him, LOL. He 8767 s pretty much an alcoholic and diagnosed as schizoaffective, but on the other hand, he 8767 s really cute, and he can only tell the truth, has an interesting spin on everything, and seems to be crazy about me. And gave me the best sex of my life! As I said to him last night: Life is full of surprises!
I did not know the feeling was mutual until we were at my friends one night having a few drinks and he kissed me. It just progressed from there. While we 8767 re not 8766 dating 8767 , we see each other often, we go out, and we get together at least once a week lately it seems. At first I was bothered by the age difference, but not so much now. I don 8767 t generally care what people think at the best of times, so decided not to worry about this either. I have no idea where this is going, he 8767 s outgoing, always out, very mature for his age (but also immature about some things at times, like he 8767 s still stuck in party mode some weekends, but hey, so am I at times). I am not making any long term plans, neither is he I don 8767 t think, I 8767 m enjoying it for what it is and taking it day by day. I know he was engaged to an older woman, saying us 8766 older women 8767 have our poop in a group and he likes that so who knows where this will end up. For now, this works for us and I 8767 m having zero regrets 🙂
He is a very successful financial planner and works long hours and he is having a good time moving up to be top at his firm. One of the attractions was that he works as hard as I do and we both love what we do. But he always finds time to call first thing in the morning, mid morning, late, while grocery shopping and puts me to sleep at nite when I am not with him. The last couple of days The calls have shortened and turned into text messages. Some of our mutual friends say that is what he does while in his work zone.
