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?

Any man in his 40's with half a brain would be interested in women his own age or even a little older.


The time to chase younger women is gone forever. Time to realize that.


Besides, mature women are the best. As they say in Sicily, "the grey mare is always the better horse". What's he going to talk about with a girl in her 20'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.

Agreed! Most of the women I've dated have been my age, or older. thumbsup


I've never bought the "damaged goods" argument.


And if a man were to reject a woman due to the fact that she has children then he did her and her children a favor by rejecting them.


Just my two cents

Perhaps the problem here is that the majority of the men over 40 years of age have more than half a brain?

No, it is not. I'm not in my 40s, but there is no logical reason for a guy in his 40s to prefer women in their 30s or 20s (not unless he wants to have children - I presume most men here in their 40s have had children already). The notion that younger women are more attractive is a myth. The reason age is vital information on just about any dating website is that people (men included, haha) want to date others close in age, generally speaking. Furthermore, based on my experience on CM, a guy is far more likely to get interest from ladies close in age.

So don't worry! A nice guy in his 40s will "pursue" you sooner or later. And, hey, if the guys here do indeed like younger women, it means you're getting interest from nice men close to 50, who aren't out of the question for you, or are they? ;-)
