I hear you She11ybeanz.
I get so disgusted and depressed with this bulls#*t on OLD.
I kicked WH out after a 26 yr. M. I was 52, now 54. I get 60 to 70 something aged men contacting me consistently. Or they are the majority that view my profile. Some ignore my age range 49 - 57.
Most look like they need a nurse, over weight, not healthy, active, fit older men. But just gotta have the "younger woman"
I have taken good care of myself all these years, very active, tennis, hikes, gym, treadmill running, etc. I look younger than 50's yet men my age (54): 9 out of 10 of them have they are looking for women in the 25 to 50 age range. Not even up to their own age. And the few men who are 54 that will go to their age or over only want one or two years over their age and I highly doubt they even want that they just put it on there. It is so true, middle aged women are truly invisible to middle aged men.
No wonder young women are able to break up long term marriages, youth in a women holds all the power to these men.
I have replied to these much older men that they should consider a woman closer to their own age and I am sure their are a lot of nice women their age. They get angry and call me rude
