It had 902 comments.. I replied to 3345roc because he lit a fire under me... I posted it under the wrong blog so I hit delete & now EVERYTHING is gone... I have ONE window open which still has the last page of comments... Is there any way of keeping it?
Dammmit to hell roc.. Your rude comment to LV1 caused this whole damned thing !
If someone put in their profile that they absolutely Dislike Liars... BUT, they have not put their true age on their own profile.. Well, isn't that horribly misleading AND yes, very very Dishonest ?? !!!
OF COURSE IT IS.
With that said. I am guilty of said crime & feel the need to make the change. Since I was in high school I have been told I never looked my age. At 20 I looked 15, at 30 I looked 20 at 40 I looked 30.. Now I am 57 years old... BUT, because I have kept myself in good shape, and was blessed w/good genes, I look much younger than I am.
I saw on one of the blogs that if a woman says she is younger, she will attract more men. Reason being... they will often put 45 or 50 as their 'Date Match Age' ...which drops me out completely.
So I made myself younger (Very easy process & quite invigorating.. lmao). However, the men I have attracted were quite interesting... Most just want arm candy, the rest looked like they could be my Great Grandfather (lmao).
Age IS important to ME. I don't care if a man is a little younger or a little older. All I want is this... When I am in public & people see myself & my date.. I would like them to think "Those two make a nice couple and they look to be in the same age bracket"... NOT.. Is that his daughter? Is she a Gold Digger?... I want both my partner and myself to VISUALLY COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER.
So now, I'm out of the closet. Ha !! It feels good because it was actually hard reversing all the math for my blogs...
THE REAL PROBLEM... What if you meet someone you like A LOT... Your age WILL become important at some point... Then what happens? The man labels you a liar (because you were, no matter what the excuse), The man may wonder what else you lied about (worthy cause to wonder)... AND then your true age may be very important to him & be a deal breaker.
MY DECISION...If I'm not liked, loved or whatever for who I am ... INCLUDING MY AGE... Well... it's the other person's loss.
I wonder how many other women are honest about their age?
I consider myself a fairly tall woman at 5'7". The majority of men I have dated were always a few inches taller than myself. When I was with someone near my height, I felt akward towering over him, especially when wearing 3-4 inche heels. It wouldn't be possible for 'me' to dress up in flats, the glamour of sexy shoes would be lost. We all know that heels make our legs look awesome and I haven't met a man yet that didn't think a woman in heels wasn't sexy.
So I wonder, is it old fashioned to think men should be taller? We all see stars walk the red carpet with women who Really Tower over their dates. My guess is these women were former (or current) models who's average height starts at 5'9" & goes above 6". Maybe that's a Hollywood thing, I don't know.
For me great confidence comes with being tall. I don't need to ask men to grab something high on a shelf when out shopping, etc. When I'm out w/girlfriends I'm the one to help them. My everyday flats are usually 2 inches so that makes me 5'9" casually.
In closing when I don my heels & a nice dress, I feel like a Queen... tall, statuesque and full of confidence.
How do WOMEN feel about dating men who are equal in height or shorter?
How do MEN feel about dating women who are taller than them?
What do others think? Would love to hear both perspectives.
