I don't know about him, but your lack of nasal proximity sensitivity might seem a little creepy to some... wouldn't that at least itch like crazy?

Oldbabe, I was going to make a comment about your Plan "A" but Clifp beat me to it again...

Link, man. Back it up with a link!

Nureyev & friends notwithstanding, that'd certainly be one heckuva first date.

Looks like only one, Judi Dench, doesn't color her hair and she hardly has any. Personally I think many 60+'ish women with naturally silver/gray/white hair look great, too! Sometimes better than those whose salon haircoloring just doesn't go with their (older) skin tones. Sometimes not, but I don't think we ALL have to color our hair to be considered beautiful. Just IMHO.

The women I have seen that don't color their hair look great if the have that short Judi Dench hair cut or great styling . So they might not color their hair but they still spend a lot .

Personally I know quite a few women with silver/gray/white hair who look perfectly attractive and presentable... no, GREAT... without "spending a lot" or going for the unisex lengths. But then for ever woman like that, there seem to be dozens who color their hair, some with pretty harsh results.

I do think that some women feel a need to spend a whole lot to feel good about themselves, though, whether it is on their hair, clothes, jewelry, or whatever, and I lay that at the feet of Madison Avenue.

After the talk on this forum about gray hair I started to take notice and I've seen some great gray hair all done with expert styling and I've seen some very poor do it yourself dye jobs which has led me to my conclusion that most of the women with great hair can thank their stylists and are not the victims of do it yourself or cheap chop shops . The truly great gray hair models have highlights in their hair so even though they are gray their hair is dyed . Their are exceptions to this but not many .

Interesting response, I guess? I suppose we live in different worlds.

True and may I add a funny story . A good friend of mine decided to let her hair go gray ( she was always blonde ) . Anyway her SO got sick and they went to the doctor . The nurse came in and asked her if she was his mother . She 's three years older than him and she was not happy with that remark .

I'm sorry - - I didn't mean to push your buttons and it is obvious that I did.

Nevertheless your "funny story" doesn't negate my opinion that quite a few women look GREAT without spending a fortune on their gray hair, or hacking it all off like a guy. They do!

I thought a ponytail would keep me looking young, but the other day while we were out surfing my 15-year-old daughter had a well-meaning adult ask her "What about your husband?"

I guess I succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. I don't know who was more grossed out-- my daughter, me, or my spouse...

Uh, I did the same thing once, to a patient of mine. Oops. Open mouth insert foot.

I have since learned to ask, "so how are you two related?" or something similar

I've also made that mistake with patients . When my husband was in the hospital a Doctor asked me if I was his daughter that was much better than being mistaken for his mother .

Here let me help you answer the question. Number 1 grossed person was the daughter, who is just totally disgusted that somebody thought she was with an old guy. #2 was DW, who while mildly flattered the her hubby can be mistaken for a 20 something, was POed that nobody asked if her if she and DD were sisters. #3 was you, who if it had been a friend of DD, would have been totally pysched that instead of being mistaken for an aging hippie, actually were mistaken for a cool surfer dude.

In fact I dare say you would have proudly shared the story (oh wait you did).

Martha would be my first choice. What could be better than a pretty blond billionaire who likes to cook?

The only problem with the pictures of the 'older women'... is that they have so much makeup on, you can't see the real person...

I saw Farrah in our building one day... without much makeup.... she looks like she is old... true, nice body and all, but not a 'natural' anymore...

I have seen some older ladies that have looked very nice with gray hair... but usually they had a very nice body under that gray...

The older I get, the older "old" gets...

Yeah, 60+ years-olds don't look quite as good as 20-somethings, but I look like a grandpa to 20-somethings anyway.

More examples of funny personals...this one likes to pontificate about nice guys
Quote:
I'm looking for a TRUELY GOOD guy with morals and values and respect for those around him. Not someone who thinks the world is out to get them and spends their time blaming everyone else for everthing. I admire stability, responsibility, education, and a good sense of humor.

On a side note, I do need to comment on the "nice guy" thing. Yes, I am definitely looking for a nice guy, but that doesn't mean that I also don't need to be attracted to them. Attraction is important to keep the fire going and does not mean a person is shallow because they judge based on that. But we are all on a dating site and because pictures are the first thing we are able to judge someone by, we do. It isn't meant to hurt anyone or snub anyone. It's just a process. Once you find the ones you are attracted to, then the harder part of deciphering personalities, communication, education, etc come into play. But I also firmly believe that you need laughter, respect, and kindness, as well as finding someone you never tire to converse with. No one said dating was easy!!!

That being said, I just need to add one more note. No, women don't always pass up the nice guys for the a$$es, like a lot of you guys think. Many times we do end up with someone and stay with someone not good for us. But rest assured, if we could have an attractive AND genuinely nice guy, we would. So basically, you may be a great guy...and an attractive guy....but that doesn't mean we are attracted TO you. And it certainly doesn't mean we prefer bad boys. Does that make sense? I just get tired of the profiles that say all women say they want a nice guy but pass for the bad boys. The perfect balance isn't easy to find or none of us would be on here, right?
