Maybe this is because older adults are wise enough to know that looks have very little to do with whether someone is going to be a kind, loving and caring companion.Maybe it’s because the physical nature of attractiveness changes when you get older, or maybe they know that being “hot and sexy” is more a function of your personality than how you look.This means that there are more seniors and baby boomers than ever before looking for some companionship to fill the void of their prior partner.
Take a quick look at the Tinder user interface to the left.
What stands out as the most important aspect of a person when determining if you may be a potential match? With Tinder (and pretty much every other online dating system on the market today) the photo is all-important.
Part of this is probably the wisdom that comes with age, but even more significant is an essential truth about how age works.
Once you get into your fifties and beyond, the actual number of your age becomes less and less significant.
They won’t be interested in pumping your ego or making you feel young.
Rather they will be someone who will have realistic expectations of you and be accepting of who you are at this time of your life.
When they tell you that they don’t want these things they are lying! Early 40’s with small children – although these women are closer to your age (not really) they are at a completely different stage.
They are raising small kids and are looking for someone to be a partner.
The thrill and excitement of a younger woman is so compelling. Someone who will appreciate what my age and wisdom brings to the partnership.
Those rare gems who value women with age and experience are just that – rare! I am happier than I have ever been and what I truly have learned is that I don’t need a man to make me complete.
This scenario is not just on Match.com, but on E-harmony, Ourtime, Plenty of Fish, OK Cupid, and the rest of the dating websites.
