Thank you, but to be honest I can be a PITA sometimes. Luckily Frank puts up with me.

I hope not! He's the ideal man, to me, in all respects. I'm not going anywhere either.

When Mr B turned 60 last year, he moaned about being bald (hereditary) and having a paunch (too many cookies ).
I simply told him to look at other 60 year old men and see how they looked in comparison. That and my followup comment about how good his c.l. keister looked in jeans got him laughing.
However, I still look at younger guys who rate the glance.
Nothing wrong with enjoying some eye candy.

I will look at younger women. But, I only let the older ones take me home.

Okay, since we've veered off topic a bit, I wanted to share a dating site profile which seemed to attract more than its share of gold diggers. Perhaps they got what they deserved.

"Late 40's guy. Fit and attractive. Already retired and I have piles."

Not sure that I'd want to go public with medical issues so soon, but to each his own

I don't like the term "Online Dating". While I have used the internet to meet various women, I do not date them on the internet. I date them the old fashioned way: I arrange a time and event, I pick them up or meet them there, I spend time with them - face to face, etc.

Or maybe this would attract a few good men...

"Single Female, early 50s, going through menopause with a vengeance."


I made this one up, but it would be funny to see this on an online dating site.

I have never figured out 'dating'. Found current friend after several years 'net contact on various forums.
Prefer to live alone. Not sure if I'm 'looking' for anything specific.
I also tend to be attracted to younger men (at my age this means 40s and 50s).

Ha! That's what I call a classy rejection. If I had been flirting, I would feel nicely let down with my flimsy masculine pride undamaged.

Just heard from a friend of mine who is about my age. She signed up for an online meeting service. Most of the guys who contacted her are about 70 and many of them still have to go to work every day. What a bummer!
