Dating in your late 40 s
To me, that's a turn-off." GF #2: "Some men don't want to invest the time it takes getting to know you.If you don't sleep with them fast enough, they get frustrated and lose interest." GF #3: "Online daters, especially the older ones, are like kids in a candy store, not ever giving anyone a chance because there's always someone else." My Advice: Slow down.Maybe you're lonely, horny, you want a girlfriend, need some company, or just need to get laid. We ALL want love, but some guys blow it by rushing.GF #1: "There seems to be some kind of 'trying on of a girlfriend.' On the first date, I've had a guy take my hand and rub my shoulders, without any words of seduction or romance.
So take your time getting to know your date; ask questions, be curious.
You can be romantic and take the lead, but exercise patience.
Guys that are too fast getting in are probably going to be too fast getting out.
I think I will pick a nice 25-year-old." Even though you're their age or even quite younger than them by years, you're still old to them. The right one won't care that you're not in your 20s, absolutely, and you're not old, but yet there are guys who will completely shut you down, especially online, if you're a year over his age range. A lot of the allure of the young woman comes with an assumption of fertility.
Men who have waited to have kids or who had kids with their first wife but perhaps not as many as they would have liked, are looking for a fertile woman.
Stop talking about your ex, your kids, your money, etc. Some therapy, meditation, or a little alone time wouldn't be the worst thing in the world for you.
