It’s difficult to meet large numbers of men that way, but I’m starting to feel like my chance of making a non age-biased connection with a guy is only out in the real world.And the real-world opportunities can be few and far between. I can’t disagree with anything you’ve observed about online dating and age. So here are the facts: Older men have more options than older women (online and in real life) because they can usually date somewhat younger.
Considering that the average women on the site has been married before, it is unsurprising that most female members have "multiple children", whereas the average man is not a parent.Most men on AYI state that they may consider having children someday but the women give a firm "no" regarding wanting more kids.But according to these figures, the average height of a male online dater is 5'10".Landscape pictures, according to e Harmony's blog, are more likely to be clicked on than up-and-down or extremely close shots, likely because it gives people a better sense of the person's body, as well as their face. I’ve noticed after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to almost nothing.
It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.I don’t mean those men any disrespect, I just want to date a guy closer to my age so that I have a longer future with him, and I don’t feel that I should have to apologize for that.I have taken your and others’ advice about profile writing, and I have great photos, so I feel confident that the problem is not in how I present myself. It always comes out eventually and I’d hate to have to explain myself then.The differences arise when it comes to personal background and the desire for a family.The average man has never been married whereas women on the site are usually looking for a new relationship after going through a divorce.It’s the built-in folly of online sites: you are only defined by your age, in bold type right next to your user name.
