David….I think sex now for me is more exciting and caring….with more experience and understanding in the more mature years it can be so much better than in my younger years.

Without authenticity….being open, honest, and genuine……there isn’t much hope for a real connection.
Butch, please be assured that all women are not like your wife. I would be happy with a hard working, loyal, dedicated man like yourself.

Men just don’t trust women anymore, and I can’t say that I blame them, judging by the stories I’ve heard here. I have to admit that I am guilty of scrutinizing against short men online. I am 5’4″ as well, but like to wear tall sexy heels.
I am still in the Military, I work out 5 times a week. Over the years, I have approach tons of women in the hopes of getting a date. Women just refuse to say yes, to a date. It has always bewildered me to why women only know the one word and that is the word, NO. Married women cannot understand why I am single and the single women avoid me like the plague. How many women do you have to approach, before one will say yes to a date?
No interest in relationships
I am still a kind hearted woman who only wanted to find the same in a man so I wouldn’t be alone for the rest of my life. If it doesn’t work out with my friend overseas who actually welcomes my care and affection, and that’s a long shot, then I will be fine alone. I’m 43 and never been married – in fact I’ve never had a girlfriend or even dated .

The current guy I’m https://www.datingmentor.net dating in person. Not sure where we’ll end up in 6 more months, just trying to enjoy his company and not think of the future.

I counted 20 guys for every woman in my demographic. Great odds for the ladies, a sucker’s bet for the guys.

I disagree completely with this article’s title that asserts dating after 50 is easy for men but not so much for women.
