This blog post focuses on heterosexual women between the ages of 35-45.
In the last few years I have noticed a distinct pattern with many of the women in my practice that are interested in finding Mr. Here are some things these women have in common: They are all: To meet compatible men, these women have done what most single people are doing these days: turning to online dating.
To try it would require that I remove the adjective "decent" from my self-description.) Nothing would make me happier than to repair my marriage and wake up next to a wife who loves me and makes me feel emotionally secure. There were a couple of traits left off the author's list for those women: --Arrogance. Personally, I don't understand why a self-confident 30-something woman would feel humiliated if she was dating a 39 year old man who later changed his preference to women in the 20-something age bracket (as in the example in the article). In my 20s, I was never interested in dating a 39 year old - I wanted to date men my age or 3-4 years older. And unlike the women you reference, my experience was very positive and good for my ego (I never even posted a picture).
But the more I (we) try and fail to make that happen, the more I think, why not just end this marriage and start meeting all those women who are, as you describe, "Educated, Funny, Interesting ... Why do some middle aged and older men think young women would prefer them to a young man?! What I found on these sites was that people were much more likely to be honest about themselves (and not presenting themselves as perfect or looking for perfect partners).
They post their information on the dating sites of their choice and then continue to spend hours of their weeks monitoring the sites.You must have some powerful ego strength to continue to endure these humiliating encounters.Which brings me to another frequent problem of online dating: how do you continue to feel good about the amazing person that you are when you know that there are millions of people online and nobody has "" at you?I found it amusing that one woman took control of her situation and started an online dating site, Cougar Life.This site is for "successful, self-confident and mature women in their prime," 35-65 who are looking to date "younger, confident and hot men." I am not sure if this dating site is what the women I know are looking for but at least someone is thinking outside the box.
