Sometimes I question if this is really the best environment for meeting men. I joined because I wanted to meet someone who shares my Faith and values. But I seem to have difficulty finding people who are interested in me on here. Yet in the "real world" I don't have this problem - but am not finding people with my same Faith and values. I sometimes wonder if it is problematic to have my age posted as one of the first pieces of information a person sees. I don't think I look as old as I am, and don't wear a sign that states my age when I walk down the street. My feeling is that most of the men my age or a little older are looking for much younger women. Is this a fair generalization to deduce?

Welcome.

You will find an electric crowd here. I wouldn't worry about the age difference at the moment. You will find someone soon!

I do think that the age next to our name definitely gets in the way. That has been my experience.

Yes, men in their 40's are interested in women in their 40's...

Just from my observation on here, it seems a number of guys are looking for younger women- some quite a bit younger. They seem to be living in a fantasy world. My (late ex) wife was 2 months older. I only date women around my own age- I may be old, but I'm not an old fool!

Having been a photographer for many years, I'm critical of profile pictures which can stop someone from checking them out, and sometimes make technical suggestions. Nothing to criticize with yours, so that's not a factor.

Blessings and good luck. crossfingers

I just read a profile of a guy who sounded great but then I saw his requirements for a woman -- he was 49 and looking only for women in their twenties or early thirties -- seriously???


Like they say men who are looking for women looking like Victoria's Secret babes ought to at least look like GQ guys!
