regarding height:
as a 5'9" woman, I really prefer men who are taller. Most guys are so close to my height that I feel awkward wearing heels around them (and some guys just don't like tall women, too intimidating for them).

My ex was around 6'2" ... that was the perfect height for me. I could wear my tallest heels and still feel dainty and feminine next to him rather than like a giantess.

My son is 6'3" and that alone intimidates a lot of guys. Whoever is in my life someday will need to be secure enough not to be intimidated by either my son's height or my own.

Come on I am going to call BS that the majority of the male profiles of men over 60 say "Looking for women 25-40 who are attractive, athletic, independent, intelligent, financially sound, no kids, etc."


LH - you would be surprised. Maybe not all of those things in one profile, but the number of delusional 50 year old men looking for 25-40 year olds is high, and it's actually rare to see a guy whose desired age range goes above their own age. (Like really, how insecure or afraid of aging does a guy have to be to exclude women who are a just couple of years older than them? )

I'm still most puzzled, however, by the gray haired guy in his 60's whose profile picture was of him in a bathrobe holding a live duck. And no explanation. Still haven't figured that one out.

Is it every guy over 60?
No.
Is it disproportionately high?
Yes.

Duck? No idea ...

The single biggest factor in dating a twenty five year old is knowing she will some day go through midlife crisis. She will be forty and I will be seventy when that happens. Not worth it.

It should be a question that all men and women ask for over 50's dating
"have you has your midlife crisis?"

My ex remarried a woman 19 years younger than him. I do wonder what will happen when he's almost 70 and she's a cute 50 year old (Asian and no kids so she will age well). I don't THINK she's the MLC type but there would be a certain poetic justice if she did have one. All I know is that when I was 51 and newly separated, I was NOT looking to date 70 year olds. The difference between 30 and 50 doesn't look that much, but between 50 and 70? That's a chasm.
