Men who have no interest in dating
:)I'm a single mom by choice (got old and had my daughter on my own)... with no family near and older single friends who I decided to leave our comfortable lifestyle of wine clubs and travel - who just don't understand parenthood nor have interest in babysitting... But you're right, having a child all of a sudden takes away all that "need" to seek out a spouse (at least for me).
And then you, the 36-year-old woman, post your profile, and what happens? It doesn’t stop older men from writing, but at least you don’t have to explain yourself to a man who doesn’t want to hear your perfectly valid explanation. But you must understand that any woman you desire online has choices. She can go out with a cute, successful man who is 35. To find out who IS interested, try Match.com’s Reverse Match.
How does a 56 year old man find a good younger woman that would be interested in marriage and willing to have children by him? Most good sites line me up with the 50 year olds and most 36 year olds tend to think I’m a dirty old man.
I know that such a person exists but can’t find a good avenue to find her. Thank you, Dale, for acknowledging a few very common truths from the world of online dating.
I'm not naive enough to think that there wasn't some damage done, but I am smart enough to know that it wasn't permanent.
Me not actively seeking love right now isn't a matter of not wanting to be vulnerable again, nor is it a matter of not trusting men (or my choices in men). If you find yourself failing at marriage once, it's hard to think of trying it again.
