Clearly, if there was a god, it was a design error. I've read your article. Read many of the comments below. I was surprised to read that you wouldn't date someone who wasn't very well off or established. I ask because it's seems like generally a women at 66 has a lower sexual market value, which is what men place with high priority. You said you bring a lot to the table, even though you are financially dirt poor. What is it that you bring to the table that you feel would make you deserving to have expectations of only dating men who are financially very established?
I'm 42 and single.
I'm curious about having your point of view as an older woman and how she views her worth and what she brings to the table in a relationship. Nobody accepts anyone for who they are. People are either attracted to another person or they are not. You can't be any older than I am, and I seem to remember that in the 'old days,' boys would be boys, and women could do nothing about it.
But When They do Date, They May Get Married!
Well then again there are many of us good men out there that can't meet a decent normal woman to date as it is since the great majority of the women today just want to sleep around and party all the time with different men which they just can't settle down with only one man unfortunately. And there are many of us men that really do want a serious relationship which most women now just don't want that at all.

Most women today are nothing at all like the old days when most women back then were very old fashioned and real ladies which made love very easy to find at that time, and definitely many men and women were very committed to one another as well too. But unfortunately today is a very different time since many women now have their careers today which even i will admit that they really don't need a man to survive anymore and can really make it on their own. And now most women prefer men with money which they will never go with a man that makes much less money, and this makes most of the women of today real users and losers.
Very difficult for many of us good men trying to meet a good woman that will be able to Accept us for who we really are.
The 5 (And Only 5) Reasons You Haven’t Found Love Yet | Thought Catalog
Thank you so much for your response! I did not expect one, especially one so quickly. That's just the way the internet seems to me. You are obviously a very intelligent woman with many valuable things to offer I find it a shame that any of us would equate "what we bring to the table", to a monetary wealth we would look for in someone else. Whether it's humor, intelligence, nurturing, sex, cooking It is only my lowly, humble opinion and I must admit to my own foolishly utopian idealism when it comes to men and women in relationships.
I make love to you, you make love to me. I guess matching up the personality traits or flaws is more difficult than any of us realize.
There is a double standard. I would interpret the hidden attitude of many women to be that they want to be the power behind the throne. Ironically, just after Obama took office, he asked for an investigation to be conducted as to why women earned so much less than men. He told me I was a beautiful woman and I would get married.
That was in South Africa. He said that one day the young guy would have a family. The fact that I was a single mother with no other income did not seem to worry him at all. That, together, with the expectation by American men that I sleep with them either on the first date or the third date, and having the gumption to ask me what date I would sleep with them on, put me off American men for good.
I find it amusing that at 66, I look 20 years younger, am still considered a beautiful woman, am in excellent health, am considered highly intelligent, extremely well educated with a high ethical standard plus talented in many areas. Of course, having brought up a child singlehandedly with a disability on three continents with no tertiary qualification at the time and with no financial or emotional support from anyone, I am, currently, dirt poor with no savings, no capital, and live at the very bottom of the financial totem pole. Because I bring more than enough to the table. I struggled against tremendous odds, and there are those who will tell you that the statistical odds of my surviving what I did and getting to where I am is nothing short of miraculous.
So here I am. Highly unlikely to get involved or married. Interesting discussion, and there are many good articles out there. I'm a single 55 year old man who has never had trouble dating women, but I do find it difficult to find women who are willing to take on equal responsibility both financially, and communicatively. I believe there is still a bit of a double standard. Women seem to want equality, even in a relationship, but when it comes to the reality of it they have a tendency to fall short. I shudder at the times I can remember a woman asking what kind of car I drove, or what my yearly salary was I have given up on dating, for quite a few reasons.
You've mentioned a few in your article. For me, it is the imbalance. Men are expected to be at a certain financial point, in nearly every stage of their life, and when that is expected of women from men I'm also not one of those men who do not find older women attractive. If they have a sense of humor, still concerned about their health and fitness, and don't expect from me more than they're willing to give of themselves The pool gets smaller as we get older, and being totally independent has a real value of its own. Frustrating to the opposite sex sometimes I would say I gave up on dating 15 years ago, but as I've never really dated anyone that's not quite true.
I did try online once, it was terrible.
Old People Don't Date Much...
I spent a lot of time writing messages that never got answered until I gave up. Thank you, Lana, the Redhead. I was just busy composing a letter to a guy explaining to him why, nice man as he is, I'm not interested in getting involved. The investment just isn't worth the reward for me. You've expressed it beautifully.4840.ru/components/wie/rame-whatsapp-ein-haken.php
4 Ugly Truths About Dating That We Shouldn’t Tolerate Anymore
I will just give him your letter to read. Hi, new to Paired Life. I'm very happy I've found this forum. Numerous relationships, one defacto relationship, no children by circumstance Lately I've hung up the towel. After the last disaster with a widower thinking I could have a ready made family for the last 3 years I have stepped out of the arena. I've been here before. The longest break from dating was 6 years of single celibacy. I find relationships take up a lot of my emotional and physical energy.
After all these years trying with no lasting happiness and the window for children long-closed I am reassessing my needs. I don't need a man for financial support.

I'm independent, my own paid off home, have hobbies, interests and good friends. My family is small and farewelled both parents and my brother over the last 10 years. I've been through the wringer, and without boring everyone I've had a lot of therapy and "family of origin" counselling and understand myself so well now and forgive myself and others who contributed to where I am now. Like so many women of my generation they thought they could "have it all". I've had some interesting jobs media, TV etc and I've got new ideas for my own artistic creativity. It's been years to come to this point of acceptance regarding childlessness and the illusion of "happily every after".
I do function well on my own.
We Don’t Date Anymore
I live alone and have made my home beautiful, artistic, warm, safe and comfortable. I love to entertain, travel and be able to do what I want when I want. I can't say I "will never date again" - but I am truly reassessing what is important now; what I will accept and not accept. I can't truly see myself living with anyone again, financially it is too risky.
