To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse. Actually, now that I think about it, that was how most of the messages I got started.
By the time of this interview, she had already given up and moved on, finally discovering her future husband while visiting old friends at her alma mater. Ryan (RD): What year did you sign up with an online dating website and how long did you keep your account? I don’t know, maybe some girls might think of that as a compliment but personally, I would have preferred a simple message like, “Hey, would you like to talk?
They will want to grow old with you and have an age appropriate relationship with you.
From my experience there are few men who are looking to date their contemporaries.
They probably won’t be in “awe” of you and hang on your every word.
They won’t be interested in pumping your ego or making you feel young.
Rather they will be someone who will have realistic expectations of you and be accepting of who you are at this time of your life.
When they tell you that they don’t want these things they are lying! Early 40’s with small children – although these women are closer to your age (not really) they are at a completely different stage.
They are raising small kids and are looking for someone to be a partner.
