It’s a joint decision, but I’m okay with only communicating with the men who feel they don’t want children or have kids and don’t want anymore.But the best part of the interview was the one in which I didn’t speak (ha! Sure, if I fall in love with someone whose hell bent on having his own kid, I wouldn’t squash his dream…They know who they are and why their marriage failed and are looking for pure companionship.They probably won’t be in “awe” of you and hang on your every word.When asked how old she was, she said “Let’s just say I’m in my sixties”.
And, since not getting enough emails or not having enough men to date has never been a problem, are there any advantages to knocking my age down 5 years, since everyone thinks I look 32 anyways? I’m open to it if I saw advantages, but I guess I feel by keeping my age as much to the truth as possible, I’m weeding out ones who could be a potential problem anyways.
Even though this guy and I were 25 years apart, we had a lot in common. I didn't know then that our age gap would define the relationship. I got that; but even though I knew there was no future, I didn’t cut it off completely. After it ended, he talked to a lot of people about our relationship -- and what happened through the grapevine was unexpected. Women judged me as having an ulterior, economic motive: “She just dated him for his money,” or “She thought she could get ahead.” In our society people are so quick to judge a young, naïve woman -- never the older man who perhaps should’ve known better too.
We worked in the same profession, had similar interests, and shared common philosophical views. So what if he was wrinkly, in all the places you might expect? There was zero jealousy on both sides, and I never saw him check out another woman -- due to him being satisfied, of course, but also him being well-seasoned in how to respect the opposite sex. Another lesson in dating: a fling with someone in your professional/personal circle is more often than not bad news. I have a friend who’s been married to someone for more than a decade who is 20 years older than her.
There is such a difference between what is available for men and woman.
What I find most interesting at this point is the whole dating scene.
Too bad we didn’t have a full hour to really get in there.
