I like attractive, fit woman and I don’t hide behind it.
Nor should you hide, I like the same. What's attractive is different for everyone, I prefer dark, exotic types.

I agree with this with that definition of resources. Very difficult to show those qualities on OLD, so you need to be fit, decent looking, have good photos and most importantly no turn offs. Maybe that's the point you've been making the whole time.
That is the point I’ve been trying to make. On top of all of that it’s still extremely difficult to OLD. Having most the qualities women typically look for I thought it would be easy for me. Well I was never more wrong. So I had to know why EVERYONE complains OLD doesn’t work. I know now and at least at makes sense to me now.

I find this thread very interesting and entertaining. Got a close friend who is deep into OLD. It seems that he is having success meeting women but not finding what he would consider a suitable long time partner. I think he is overvaluing himself or his standards are potentially to high. He is only 1/3 on the sixes ($$$). Some of his complaints are:
If she would just lose 20 pounds If she was just 2 Years younger If she was just a bit more attractive If she had a better job
I think he likes the chase but tires of the catch when she doesn’t stand up to his EX appearance wise. He admits that most are a better person than his Ex.
I am not sure if I will enter the fray after the divorce is final or not. I am 6’-1” 170lbs, have a six pack, and make 6 figures…. If I only had a full head of hair.
