I have not done research on the topic but I do notice most of the peopple responding to me are older than what I ask. So, in my opinion, many rich men are not necessarily interested in me as a person, simply interested in a trophy. That's not ok with me.
Ladies...don't take what barkeep says to heart...he can't help it. You see not only do you have to consider the source, but you should consider where that source lives!!! In Inuvik, NT. There's not a lot of civilized people there...more than likely alot of very uneducated, gruff & rough around the edges type of people...which is what barkeep himself is displaying with his own personality. He has probably never had a good example of a good person with positive influences in his life. It's his environment...he can't help it!
Katie, thanks for the comments. I think I can just see you taking the guy out the door too! I have 2 daughters - 19 and 22, and feel the same way. Many times, age doesn't seem to be relevant, but when us old geezers are going after gals that get carded on a regular basis, it seems just a bit over the top. Thanks for the laugh!
I agree Steel, I see a lot more people being positive and it would be nice to keep it that way. I think Tomi is adorable and she speaks the truth and certainly does not write posts to slam others. The older I get the more sex drive I have! Sometimes I understand where men are coming from when they think about sex every 3.5 seconds is it?? I think men should appreciate that in us older women.
Okay, sorry to stray from the topic...but this topic seems to get alot of attention, from people I consider have some semblance of intelligence...I have a question. In the last week, when I do a search, suddenly some names have "preferred" highlighted in a blue box. What makes them preferred? They are not in my favorites list. I haven't contacted them, or winked at them. Not all of them meet what little criteria this system asks for. So what criteria is the system using to determine who is preferred and who is not? Does anyone know?
barkeep... everyone's entitled to their opinion here, it's a forum, it doesn't mean we have to approve everything that is said but we do have to respect the other's opinion... and be diplomatic and civil and courteous... treat people like you would like to be treated...
well, obviously I'm hitting nerves. My periscope is pointed younger, but I dated a 39 year old last week that was awesome. I've only been married once. 15 years. And I was faithful everyone of those years. Before that, I was into trouble...all the time. I'm just getting back into finding trouble again.
I also said, it is a very difficult task finding that women who is very attractive to me physically as well as emotionally. And what I find gorgeous others might not. Beauty is a very personal experience. Go look at the mona lisa...that ugly thing. But wait a second, have a closer look...
Fun4two.. all of your posts that I've read are truly insightful and make you sound like the true lady that I believe that you are.
As for hypocrits.. well.. I find the people that complain about it not being ok for older women to date younger men.. are the same ones that find it not acceptable for older men to date younger women..
Personally.. I'm currently attracted to men a bit older than me. Hasn't always been that way and may not always stay that way. But it's my choice to make. I think that as long as the people involved are consenting adults.. who are others to say what's ok? In Sweden, 18 is the age when one is considered an adult. That's the age when you're allowed to vote and make all decisions about yourself. Surely you can also decide who to date. Now I too have to admit that I would react if I saw an 18 year old on the arm of an 60 year old, regardless of gender of the older person.. maybe that makes me a hypocrite? I don't know, but I do make an effort to keep an open mind and not to judge people whos situations I know nothing about. I try, but naturally I don't suceed everytime. Nobody's perfect, so I guess there's a tiny bit of doublemoral in me too.
Oh and for the record.. the ladies posting here.. most of you are simply stunning and have amazing figures! You're in better shape than many women a lot younger so keep your heads high!!
Take care everybody! It's 1am and I have rambled enough. Over and out.
BK you are showing your nastiness here. Most of us these days are taking preventative health products and i know they work. I have a doozy and my bones are very good. But you might need to start taking those precautions. I hate to inform you but we do not have the monopoly on calcium loss here. It will happen to you if you are not taking the proper measures.. By time you are 40 it is starting and by time you are 70 watch out. We might think you are getting "BRITTLE"...S4U
barkeep, the news is out that some of us are trying to bring some order and decency back to the forums. If we all try a little harder, it'll be a much friendlier place. TomiGirl is a nice lady, not to mention a pretty face and personality too. Please try a little respect for other's feelings. It goes a long way.
barkeep.........and you would write that post to me BECAUSE????????? Just because I am THRU with menopause doesn't mean I represent "brittle".. I am just as active now as I was 10 or 20 years ago and can do those things I coudl do 20 years ago. My posts are not mean spirited, but more informational of women my age, and if you read the other women's posts, they feel the same way I do, so go back behind your bar and behave yourself!!!
