[B] Iam 56 years old,and still single,since 1975.Its not like i enjoy it,but,its hard.
it seems as tho us folks who are doing the AARP Thing,seem to get pushed to the back of the line,
when it comes to that special someone.I guess we need to be rich,or something.Iam still trying to figure out,why.

Is it any different then when I was in my 40s or 30s or 20s? Think about it...what really is different?

If it's true love that is the goal, then it seems that it is a little less complicated now. In my younger drinking days, one night stands were accepted as the norm from both sides. Nowadays, it doesn't happen that way. I guess the party is over lol.
I sure don't meet as many women, but I am hoping for something better then a one night stand (though I sure could use one )

Is it harder? Sure, but that's because we make it harder. Remember back to when you were a teen, you could fall in love over all most anything. Flash forward and it's not so easy, a potential partner has to meet all sorts of qualifications to be accepted now, they have to look a certain way, act a certain way, do things we like to do, etc.

^^Painter turning 50 nowadays anyway was a death sentence for mr. Read Touchs response above ya. What he says is true but mainly for males. Females "STILL ARE SITTING ON THE GOLDMINE" so I think gals have an edge even at 50. Gosh wait till you hit 55 like me....55 and think like an 18 year old. I hate being this old.

In some ways it is much harder as we age, than it is when we are younger. In my youth, I had less responsibility, fewer bills, greater freedom, so I was able to go out, have fun and meet new people. There were many women, who were in a similar situation, so it was always easy to at least make basic acquaintance to see if there was a possibility for more.

Now, I work 60 or so hours a week. I have a daily commute of 90 minutes or so, round trip (if the traffic isn't bad) and the women that meet are typically married, or much younger than am I. So, now time is a factor, where it was not before.

There is also the fact, that I have been on my own now for 15 + years. I am set in my ways and I am unlikely to significantly change who I am, simply to satisfy the desires of someone else. It is not that I want someone else to change to suit me, but rather, it is my wish to find someone who will accept me as I am, (warts & all) and whom I desire as she is.

So, yes, I think it becomes more difficult to find true love as we age. It is not impossible, as I know many people who have managed to do so. It is simply more harder. Of course, who said it would be easy?

For the reasons that Say Yes above as well as others have outlined, I think it may be harder to find love as we age. Yet at the same time, when TRUE love arrives, I think we have far more capacity to recognize it than we did when we were younger.

A bit harder than when we were younger, but I think it's nicer since we know what we want and we're hopefully more mature.

Love is a combination of feelings and actions, that takes alot of energy.
Middle aged people often don't have much to spare.
Slim pickins that's for sure.

Harder, yes...impossible, no. I've been alone for over 11 yrs. now and I'm still searching. Like a lot of the others, I don't want to change and I don't want to change someone else, rather have someone that is accepting of me as I'd be of them. Life is short, so I don't plan to sit back and wait for someone to share life with. I go and do what I can do, and I do it alone usually. When or if the time is right for someone to enter my life, then I'll be ready. But for now, dang, not going to waste time worrying over it. I got things to do, things to see...and, I'm going to go hang gliding again next month if all goes well. Yippeee!!!

Yes it is harder to find true love when women are older. I'm your age and I finally found a great guy, he is much younger though, so you might want to keep that in mind lol. The younger men really appreciate older women. Alot of the older men only want younger women, go figure. My bf is 17 years younger than me. I know, seems like a stretch, but I find that younger men aren't just sitting around watching TV, they like to go out and enjoy life, plus they are easy on the eyes too hee hee.

Have you ever noticed on some guys profiles, they say age 41 or age 50, yet it does not say divorced, it says single? Hmmmmm, and what have they been doing all these years? Does make you wonder doesn't it? Can you say the word Player? Well...it does come to mind lol. Or men who are say 58 or so years old and on their profile it says looking for 18-60, hmmmmm, quite a broad range there. Even for me 18 is a bit too young lol.

I think it's harder when we get older also. I met someone on here, we dated for 10 months and recently split up. I'm still not sure why! But I have hope there is still someone out there for me. I'll keep looking but at the same time, can't put my life on hold till I find someone.

Not sure if it is harder but more of a matter 'are you willing to go hunting'!



Me, I see so many women here on MD that are so fine BUTT (yeah spelled correctly) I just am not into the whole game thing...ya know meeting, talking, checking each other out...etc.

I guess the online thing has not clicked within me yet, I still prefer the random bump into whom ever that life brings.
