In online situations, women say they want desperately to meet a nice guy like me, but never answer my response to their profile. They have a lot of dating options, they’re building their careers, and there isn’t a clear urgency to settle down.
I am trying to remain positive, but two things are really bothering me. Once a guy crosses 35, however, he (theoretically) tends to get more serious.
It’s the same exact advice I give to women in their early 40’s who want men in their early 40’s…except men in their early 40’s want women in their 30’s. I’m being a bit unfair, Adam, because there IS a market for a 42-year-old man – and you can certainly be doing better than you’re currently doing. I’m looking for a LTR but with that said I’ m not willing to settle.

People ask me all the time whether I offer dating and relationship coaching for single men. So I thought I’d tell you about the experience men have when they’re trying to “date like a grownup.” If you’ve read my e Book, 7 Secrets to Finally Finding Love after 40, you know that I believe strongly that empathizing with men is absolutely essential to your dating and relationship success.
I’m a 42 year old single male who recently left a 5 year relationship for various reasons, but mainly because I wanted kids and she did not.
I thought that since I was an attractive, fit, well-educated, financially and emotionally secure guy that I would have no problem finding a woman in her mid 30s to settle down with and start a family.
but maybe I should try to get into their heads about it and stop taking it personally.
A man of 60 has established himself, and is finally secure with his own masculinity, his finances, his past, and now wants to 'have some fun' a 40 year old woman, is no longer the bubblehead silicon queen, but also has learned about life, and enjoys a longer more passionate time, with someone mature enough to provide it.
But still is 'energetic' enough to infuse some 'hawtness' into the relationship.
in conclusion: a 60 year old man has the intellect and maturity of a 40 year old woman.
The intellectual connection would also be a factor I guess, she has so much more life experience. They would be happy with 20 something prostitutes however. My knock out 2nd cousin was in her young 20s with a 40 something boy friend. But still is 'energetic' enough to infuse some 'hawtness' into the relationship.
