I initiate contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself.
It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.
I don’t mean those men any disrespect, I just want to date a guy closer to my age so that I have a longer future with him, and I don’t feel that I should have to apologize for that.
I have taken your and others’ advice about profile writing, and I have great photos, so I feel confident that the problem is not in how I present myself. It always comes out eventually and I’d hate to have to explain myself then.
They have told me of their frustration with lack of responses.
What interesting is that younger guys ( early 40s) vs those my own age seem more interested.
