If this happens to you, trace their IP addresses. (google how to trace an IP address.)Maybe CM is aware that online dating is not good for anyone older that 55. !. they are vulnerable to flatteries and 2. distance is a hindrance. I would advice those over 55 years old - find your man in you own parish or the neigboring parish within 5 miles radius.

I think it's a generality to say that those over 55 are "vulnerable to flatteries". I do believe that certain people of any age are vulnerable to that; that characteristic isn't limited to a certain age. Someone else would say that those over 55 are more jaded or on guard and therefore would doubt any good word said to them.

Changes are being made here that tell me our presence is not wanted. We have seen the saints names removed, the religious graphics removed, and essentially, traditional elements removed. Our discussion threads are moved to common areas, losing the perspective we bring and sending us into the world of people who have not come from the same society we came from. The men are continually told that the ladies want us to live and pursue according to the societal norms we grew up with, but we are trying to apply all that to long distance, Internet dating.

We have seen time and again that many of the people under 40 are very comfortable with the role reversals that help this system work and they generally don’t mind the weakening of the Catholic identity of this site. (Undoubtedly someone will tell us the identity has not been weakened, regardless of what many of us have said.) It is usually the older women who say the guys are wrong and don’t know what they want the older guys who complain that the women don’t know what THEY want.

So my question is this: Do people over 55 belong in the Internet dating world?

John, I think we belong everywhere we want to, just as the younger people do. Why not?? I think the search tool is a little lacking and we could use a little more flexibility in how we're matched. I also don't understand what you mean by the role reversals that help the system work? Please explain it to me, bacause I am not getting you. I am unsure about what changes are being made here that you refer to and why our presence is not wanted.

I am just being careful and I know what kind of guy I'd like and which ones I don't, but I don't feel as though I am "on guard." I am trying to approach this whole thing with a very open mind and willingness to give everyone a fair chance.

They belong behind closed doors in holy pairs, living joyful married lives.
It should happen to all of us here.

Tessa, I don't think you have a right to say who the men 55+ should date. It so happens that sometimes younger women like the older men and older women like younger men. You are wrong to state that younger women do not want to date older men. You are dead wrong. You may not want to, but others do.

Yes, it would be nice, but it isn't happening.

Your willingness to do what has to be done regardless of traditional gender roles is most attractive. Many of us men do not sympathise with the "helpless" type of woman.

Of course we do. (I'm close enough to that magic age to say so.)


No one is trying to drive older members off CM. The things you described don't seem designed to alienate older members. I think it's a matter of faulty perception, of reading things into the situation which are not there.
