Kevin Gillham it is good to hear there are good men out there I am sorry that your marriage ended the way it did Unfortunately some people don’t realize when they do have a good person in their lives I have stopped going on the online s It has been better for me because I don’t need the stress or the games people play I was diagnosed with another health issue that I have confronted and in the process have lost forty pounds and am doing really well I know my problems were due to an abusive marriage and now I am feeling more confident about myself God bless you I enjoyed your feedback and hope to hear from you again Take care Connie Hi Phil I know how you feel I had a birthday while on one of the s and no one said “Happy Birthday” Hey Derick what state do you currently live in? And what is your age and what age women were you or are you looking for? I am just now finding this SENIOR PLANET and you wrote this back in 2016 so you are probably taken by now or just gave up one of the other Let me know your status if you want to If not I hope you found the women you wanted and are happy Write me on here and I will. I am a member of AARP & decided to Take a look at their Supposedly A several day free browse I put in my Desired ages zip code etc & all the did was “loading” but it never fully loaded & I was not shown any matches in my area Nothing happened….Don’t waste your time They do not have it together!!!!! Don’t be skeptical I have been divorced for 25 years 16 + years having share custody of kids and then taking care of my parents who became ill I have dated a lot and then go for a period of years without After the last year on eharmony and Match I have to say Match worked best for me But my experience has been that ladies 54- 59 are not ready for a relationship The last lady said she was not ready for a relationship and we had not even met!! The previous one was on and off again for 6 months Said she still had feelings for a man she had an affair with after her divorce So I will. Go on It’s a totally free & a lot of members are 60 plus Just the for you Pass it on you’ll. Well now there’s a gal I want to spend day after day with one who … before she’s ever experienced what intimacy might be like with me (and that doesn’t mean intercourse because there’s SO much more to … what eventually SHOULD lead to sex of whatever version or nature of that shoe … fits the two of your feet) What gets me off is what get’s her off and the more she likes it the more I will enjoy doing it If she isn’t into it then I will drop that approach faster (or at least as fast) as I would a cold fish who won’t even consider trying my suggestion which I know most women (based on past experience) … really enjoy (or at least they fooled the crap out of me. It’s not what you pick It’s not whether or not you pay for access What matters is that you carefully weed out the wheat from the chaff You just have to sort out the frogs from the princes Not all women on these s are prizes either There is usually a good reason or two why women are single later in life I think what our society does in general to men is not conducive to making them good in relationships Men are told not to cry not to show emotion not to be vulnerable To “be a man.” Few men can ignore this or overcome their socialization I was just lucky to be born into a culture that rejects that view of men and teaches respect if not adulation for women Don’t blame the s The larger issue is how men get to be the way they are You know the old saying about the hand that rocks the cradle can change the world? Well it’s true Irish Eyes you must go back in and hide your profile or delete it if you no longer want it on the Go to help and continue on from there Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Cmetronyc thanks for your helpful feedback The AARP was fairly new when this article was written but we had tested its non-AARP version How About We and found it worked well We wish you the best of luck on. I found one reviews that might be useful for you I know that SeniorMatch does not allow members below the age of 30 You can take a look and choose the suitable one. Thanks for your feedback I’m in almost the exact situation that you are in I do not look my age am active fit intelligent educated blah blah blah but this doesn’t seem to matter to men now But what’s bothering me most is finding out that single’s saying that they are for seniors are lying because they let anyone of any age join So there seems no where to find men our ages who genuinely want to a woman their age Even on the senior s they want much younger women and can find them there Senior s should have an age floor Period. I’ve done a lot of research on the various single’s s and Zoosk has by far the lowest ratings and some really scary comments Also I don’t like how they have implemented the profiles So in short this is not a single’s that I’m willing to risk my money on especially as a senior looking for a serious relationship and not just casual social flings which seems to be the purpose. Hey Armie! I live in Utica New York so I think I am quite a distance from you I wish you the best of luck! Connie Click here to visit eHarmony Most men are a-holes what can I say? When I was younger I preferred older women I am 66 I prefer women my age within 10 years Older women know what they want Older women are sexier Generally speaking if someone is single at our age there’s a reason for it and a lot of times the reason is that they suck at relationships Look for a guy who has a legit reason for being available Look for a guy who knows how to treat a woman Look for a guy who has worked on himself to become a better person We’re out there we’re just rare Don’t give up and DON’T SETTLE for less than what you want As my current love says you definitely have to kiss a lot of frogs You do NOT have to sleep with them Bud Eugene Oregon Hi Steve not sure if they will approve this or not…I am VERY new to this as I just started so I know about as much as you do about what I’m doing ha ha Some say they are free and they let you sign up for free and then want a fee for you to e-mail the person… What is your age and what age are you searching for I am searching for from around 60-75 b/c I am a senior retired private elementary school teacher and I live in West Virginia Tell me a little about you if you are interested and we’ll see how it goes wkr2014hilly2014@ I will be looking for you THANKS! Whats the deal w/guys on senior s? they never follow thru they dont pay attn 2 what im looking 4 consequently 50 y.o waste my time im a young spirited 70 y.o 55 y.o is pushing my boundaries but i can live w/it. If anyone finds a great free senior besides OkCupid or POF PLEASE let me know! I am exhausted with trying and not getting any where near what I’m looking for. Hey everyone I was on Our time 3 different times and all 3 times met great guys or so I thought the first only lasted a couple of months he wanted to be possessive The second one lasted 8 months I really fell for him then found out our relationship had been based on lies and deceit Then the last one ended about 3 weeks ago after talking on the phone and texting each other every day I found out he wanted me to send him money Lord what is wrong with this older generation why can’t we be honest and open with each other life is short guys why do you have to lie you will eventually be.

I agree with you Lynn Morals and values are gone pretty much! It sounds like setting up an informal matching section in a like this one might be useful as many of the people here seem sincere and interesting and have had similar bad experiences on the s I also wish SOMEONE would start a truly honest which had effective and honest matching functions and who made an effort to purge scammers I suspect that not only do some of these s look the other way in order to make money from the scammers memberships (a penny-wise pound foolish approach) but may be involved in the scams (or kickbacks) That would be truly sickening but with the level of scamming on many s it’s hard to ignore the possibility. I cannot speak for all males I do know & can imagine that there are jerks galore out do not know about manners or how to properly respect women Sorry you experience this However my being polite and honest may be setting myself up to be deceived as ironic as that may sound I wish you better times & experiences. I was wondering if you were hiring ? Id like to work on your farm Bob 03/05/2018 at 11:47am REPLY I too have a small farm and enjoy raising my. I have tried all the date s and never had any all tell you what you want to hear and all become lies Or all want money No luck with any. I would love to meet someone around my age that is not tall I have tried these s and my picture was on there which is a true picture not someone I am not and got a like of replies that my picture was great it really stood out but it didn’t matter anyway I got replies from out of state and even when I said in my profile do not contact me from out of state I was looking for someone in my area they don’t read it thats the way I take it I am very young at heart female and do not look my age 69 which I am told but to find someone like me. I am very disappointed in Services for Seniors You do not receive photos nor profiles I will not rejoin this and I have cancelled my card so you cannot renew. Hello I am looking for a quality gent also but I do not s It is so degrading as the older gents want younger chicks I am 81 and tell the truth but nothing happens I look younger so maybe I should lie???? I wonder if the gent from LV found his lady Although I would not want to live in LV. Hi Phyllis I know one review s for online senior It has listed the best 5 s including SeniorMatch and OurTime. I found that profiles continued to be posted after the subscriber has decided to end membership on OurTime I too kept getting “flirts” from the company months after I had stopped my 1 month trial My effort to stop these contacts was thwarted by their policies Now I have just blocked all e-mails(and I guess my profile is still showing!) You may be right Joan….though for me who is not so good with being 66 and alone it’s very hard to resign to the fact that there’s nothing more left No companionship enjoyment of life with another But I’m not a model and have health issues…I would hope that wouldn’t disqualify me…Especially on a SENIOR …My husband left 6 years ago after we had a very loving connected relationship for 17years ~ he has dementia sooo sadly and I’ve found that everything doesn’t play out like the Notebook movie…Anyway I don’t know WHAT to do in regards to joining a I’m kind of scared and don’t have much of an income to afford what some of these s seem to want Any suggestions ? I liked it that you can write ALL of what you wrote Not just the suect matter but the fact that we are both writers I love e-mailing and the longer they are the better for me I was e-mailing with a man who was famous at his one-liners Drove me crazy I have 2 published books out as of 2016 and nothing was more frustrating than his. Hello Gail My name is William I will love to know more about you Please send me an email to enable us get to know each other wmdavid06@ I am making no claims about specific s but be careful with the supposed “Review” s By all evidence most are written by the s themselves and conveniently put their at the top Those that are shills for the s seem to be little better–giving largely positive reviews based on little or no first hand experience with the s Why else would they be parroting the claims owners while largely ignoring or downplaying the many negatives of each–as witnessed by the overwhelmingly negative comments of actual users in Comments sections of s like this one? Many people wonder why so many members on the s are shady or phony I wonder just as much why those running s seem even more dishonest and deceptive They could still make many millions with an honest and well run but evidently greed wins out It’s all a sad commentary on today’s society. As someone asked I am in the Denver area Joeg 05/08/2017 at 3:32pm REPLY. Hi homentx and operasinger we just published our updated s list We have big hopes for /best-senior--s/ What’S the fastest growing group of online daters? If you’re thinking men in their 30s think again Bowling Green State University professors of gerontology Dr Wendy K Watson and Dr Charlie Stelle have been researching the landscape and found that people over 60 represent the most rapidly growing demographic in online The study authors also delved into the question of which features make a a good fit for seniors Of course there’s no one-size-fits-all but their number one criteron make sense to us: an emphasis in profile questions on mutual interests and honest self-representation over looks and sexual prowess You can read an article about the ongoing study by clicking here. If you ladies think you have it bad I am 71 and a widow I too look a lot younger I have been on our time for only a short time and had several contacts Three of them I have met They were nice GENTELMEN Only one was close to my age The other two were 80 and 84 But like of you said they want women 10to15 years younger So the way I look at it it’s. Have you tried Zoosk? It has men your age Just as in any you have to pick and choose who to learn. Hi Linda thanks for your comment A while ago we wrote about a called “For Farmers Only” — in fact a for farmers Take a look maybe you’ll have more luck! /looking-for-love-later-a---for-farmers-finds-traction-in-the-city/ Couldn’t figure out how to make a comment other than go through ‘reply’ so apologies! I don’t recommend ‘OurTime’ – today I looked at the category ‘my flirts’ and as I’ve heard others complain about there were entries that I had not made to people in whom I had zero interest So sometimes simply clicking on a profile shows a ‘flirt’ result I’ve read from one subscriber that they had changed his profile info I can’t figure out how to make criteria choices enough to for example eliminate smokers Word search isn’t reliable Don’t bother. Ok what’s going on? Just joined Singles Over 60 (I’m 69) because most guys don’t seem to want women my age and I want a guy close to my own age So the first guy who contacts me on SO60 is 43–WTF? PALEEZE! Why are these so-called Senior single’s s allowing all ages to join? It’s frustrating enough being an older woman on all of the other single’s s because of competition with younger women but we now must put up with this on the senior s too Why? What are the senior creators thinking? Click here to visit OurTime OkCupid Oh Really am new to all this i have also meet a lady that posted her old pictures when she was young please write me dennisbraun60[at] Hi Kevin yOu sOund like the man every woman dream of Very romantic words I bet yOur not alone anymore.

Wish you best of. Hi Kkns we haven’t received any emails from you but we’re happy to remove your email from the notifications list for this thread. There are far more senior s as I know Most of them are basically the same You need to pay for a membership to make real contact with other members you are interested in Actually any luck needed on these kind of s My friend finally met her current wife on singles.

I’ve been on senior s off and on for several years Out of all the first dates I’ve had finally met one guy who I actually enjoyed After 4 dates he decided to call it quits with no explanation He wasn’t perfect either but at least I was willing to try So I keep trying but refuse to pay to find a good guy any longer And even though I’m still attractive and in shape being 63 seems to be a huge factor Most guys my age want a younger woman even though most of them are not much to look at or have that much to offer But wanting a woman who’s 15 – 20 yrs younger is ok right? Yet as soon as a older woman wants a younger man say 5 or 10 years all of a sudden we’re Cougars A word I absolutely hate! Personally an older man who thinks he needs a much younger woman has some serious issues I stay away from players.

Check out more Senior Planet articles: Thanks for removing me from the email list FYI….I am with a verrrrry special man who I met through There are some good and honest ones. I have fallen in love twice from guys I met on One relationship lasted two years until he moved out of state to take care of his son who had become chronically ill He is now in a relationship but we remained friends He was widowed and understood how long term loving relationships work The next relationship was with someone I greatly respected and admired who was able to mimic being capable of an emotionally intimate relationship for a short period of time but couldn’t sustain it He had been divorced for 13 years and admitted he had had many girlfriends I haven’t met the right one yet but I do have to say that even though my heart was broken twice through relationships that started on Match I don’t regret it I had some amazing experiences and memories It gave me the confidence that even in my senior years I can attract men and the possibility exists for the right one to. After my last comment i scrolled thru other comments on here and their seems 2 b a theme of maltreatment by society as a whole! ive personally experienced it i believe AARP sold us out a llooonngg time ago this includes their s! does anyone out there remember the GREY PANTHERS??? anyone up 4 reviving it? it was great in concept but perhaps a little 2 “radical” 4 seniors @ that time i say its time 4 nikes attitude! “JUST DO IT” AGAIN anyone interested? i hope so somethings gotta be done! soon!!! let me. You have to look at these s in the right way It is like finding a needle in a haystack but love is worth it! There are some good kind decent financially secure men on these s You have to screen everyone carefully First messaging back and forth on the then phone calls and finally meeting in a public place Sometimes you meet a decent guy and there is just no chemistry People have to connect on multiple levels for love. Vid several senior s Nothing is free as the old. Getting to try online for the first time,whom ever interested in getting to know each other,kindly respond and we can take it from there,hoping to hear from someone soon I AM NOT A COUGAR AND CAN NOT MEET ANYONE NORMAL WE MEET FO RLUNCH OR WINE AND THEY DON’T COME BACK BUT JUST KEEP SEARCHING FOR A 10 AND THEY ARE MOSTLY OLD UGLY AND IN BAD SHAPE THEY THINK THEY WILL LAST FOREVER WAKE UP YOU MEN I AM A RETIRED FORMER MODEL ETC WIDOWED ON LONG ISLAND INDEPENDENT AND WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A COMPANION FOR TRAVEL DINING THEATRE ETC ETC IF ANYONE READS THIS CONTACT ME AT SIX THREE ONE FIVE ZERO SIX SIX ZERO FOUR THREE AND LEAVE A NUMBER AND MESSAGE CECE I’m glad you found someone I’m also on OkCupid and have been matched with several men who are 85% and higher ALL of them live long distance like over 500 miles How does that help. I have taken a break from the online scene Seems like at times I keep attracting women who I later find out are married Needless to say I am taking a break and focusing on me (Isn’t that what a lot of women do?) Anyway whenever I feel ready to date again you the online s I would prefer are or Zoosk is ok but the majority of women on that are from San Antonio Tx (Too far for me) For Austin Tx there are too many young folks here so it can limit choices for mature men. Hi Kevin Same thing happened to me My second daughter left for and so did he after 35 years of what i thought a good marriage He every gave me a surprise party in a very prestige hotel in n y c for our 35 anniversary He told everyone how lucky he was what a great wife/mother i was And they two weeks later pick up left just like that Didn’t. Does it look like everyone around you makes it look so simple but you have a hard time with this idea whenever someone new asks you out? You may be setting about it the wrong method or you may merely require some ideas for ladies that will make the procedure a little simpler Get. Daphne I totally agree with you I myself just turned 66 and looking between 60 to 70 but I was shocked the first time I saw a 64 yr man looking for 18 to 35 yr range and now I see it all the time How they even consider that age Compared to us they are looking for a child That’s pretty sad to be that afraid of aging that they need someone barely out of their teens to make them feel young This is why women say the decent men are taken cause there’s so few left The thing about these types of men is they are going to get a sad wake up call when they finally realise that these young women are not going to spend their life with them short term only and that’s if they can get one We don’t need men like that anyway I’ve been smoking marijuana since I was 19 My current love does not smoke but does not mind if I do What’s your hangup that this is a big deal to you? It doesn’t sound like he was insistent that you smoke too I smoke mostly at night to relax so I can sleep Before the operation I did it to help with lower back pain that was severe Some of the best sexual experiences I ever had occurred when I was under the influence If someone has an addictive personality it is one thing but if you’re uptight about a harmless drug I would say YOU might be the one with the issues He probably figured out that you are intolerant and who needs that? Why is HE on any ? Wow Why. These s want me to fill out numerous pieces of information and then it turns out there is no one that lives in my area Bad humbug. Connie Bennett there are still good men out there I was married for 27 yes myself and did everything a man suppose to do for the women he loves but after the kids were grown an on their own SHE wanted to be free to do whatever I’m a good hard working soft loving kind of guy that believes in the old way a man should open doors,pull out her chair bring or send flowers leave love note here and there be respectful show her that you love just her (did all that and still got my heart ripped out ) there are good men keep looking and yea its not all about sex but I still like to cuddle on the couch together and watch a good movie I’m 56 but young at heart hit me up I’ll show you what a TRUE gentleman is. With Watson and Stelle’s study in mind we’ve tested several popular s looking also for easy online experiences and come up with five – both free and fee-based senior-specific and all-ages – that we deem senior-friendly Take a look and see which is a good fit.
Marsha Your message is exactly how i feel Im your age Still full time employed and self sufficient divorced for over 12 years Not interested in sleeping around Just want companionship for events listening to oldies music from the 70s trips and just exchange experiences and laugh a lot But looks like there are NO men going for that Ive decided to just join cultural gardening and volunteer groups where I can meet people face to face. What a loss! And I can’t explore that kind of stuff with my best friend I don’t like the way he smells (a joke for those who can’t spot one when its in written form) So ya whether the man admits it or not and whether he is able to even perform or not its still about sex Sorry to say but there is NO woman out there who is going to fit the bill as a “best friend” … better than another of the same sex who has the same interests insecurities etc Sadly men are going to continue to act stupidly immature and there’s nothing but a change in societal attitudes that will ever bring a change in that area Which ain’t gonna happen in. Just keep looking There are good men out there like me Sure a lot of us are taken just like a lot of good women are taken But not all The time you spend complaining can be better used in searching. So I continue to look just as everyone for that one needle Maybe they are out there and maybe not but I am content with where I am and no regrets on taking my time I would only consider a younger man on a temporary relationship…that one made me giggle! So maybe older men are looking for a younger woman in the same aspect they just think it sounds better if they say they are looking for a relationship. Hey I just found one myself tonite and it’s called SITALONG…it’s listed…I found it by searching free s on Google. To Jamilfunjoy: Try okCupid or POF They are both free but you still need to be aware there are still stagnant profiles and you may receive many out of state or long distance messages It’s always up to you if you want to respond of course. Maybe if you broadened your horizons some and ask for 50-70 Some of the ones who are in the 60’s and early 70’s are very mature ready for a companion/friend/lover and might be just what you’re looking for Don’t rule out a women b/c of her age Some that are older are young at heart and think maybe 20 years younger than their chronological age… Never say never besides age is really only a number You can find chemistry where you may least expect to find it Look at Donald Trump his wife is like 20 years or so younger than he is I know a guy who is 16 years older than his wife and another couple where the women is 12.5 years older than her husband Have neighbor married to a man 7 years younger than she is so it must work Older women usually know exactly what they want younger women don’t… It might be quite nice not sure how women would feel about this but have the strictly for senior women No men Men interested in this singles for women only would surely visit it It would have to be known that the is strictly women 50+ seeking men 50+ And broadcast the all over the Internet Women sign up for free and MAYBE let the men pay a lil something to see us We would weed out those that are not serious about a relationship or companionship? Something. Charlie Hi there Would you mind telling me which side you have checked out Almost dread starting all over again with the new Thanks Sally I disagree with you Phil I have just started with these s about a month ago and am already turned off by all the fake profiles The men that I have corresponded with have not been anything to write home about They don’t seem to put any effort out to meet a nice woman The last jerk (and yes he was a jerk) completely forgot that we had made plans to meet only two days after we talked When I sent him a text confirming he responded with I completely forgot all about it If he changed his mind he should have been a big boy about it and been honest with me Instead his reply made me feel awful I wasn’t important enough to remember to meet for a cup of coffee? And this is a man in his 50s I thought guys would have grown up by that age I’m a nice woman not bad looking with a lot to offer and it seems to be the impossible to find a nice honest guy Well probably not on. I find the problem with many men is they don’t know how to present themselves! They take pix with rumpled shirts havent shaved and look a mess there backgrounds are a mess! Or their profile pix shows them far away or its a pix of their car or dog! If they don’t make an effort then forget it! I would want someone that is kind caring loving enjoys life one that knows there is stress in life but doesn’t let it run her life one that isn’t afraid to show and express their feelings someone that agrees to disagree at one eight three three two seven five eight four text me you can also email me at greenjuliet 55 with those. Paula I have also tried singles over 60 Though it is not that active as other general like match but I got contacted by real people who are in my age group This is important cos I don’t want to be a sugar mom kind of relationship. As I read your comment,I felt a little ftustrated.I have the same comments about these s as everyone else.I was on Farmers Only for several months and experienced much disappointment I am a retired rice farmer but still have a small cow/calf my profile,I stated who and what I was and that I desired to connect with woman who enjoyef rural believe most women on that were looking for a dtugstore cowboy with a new shiny truck I try to be conservative in grading myself “average”,raised “old school”,and still work of the women on Farmers say they wanted to meet a man with rural roots which I found rather odd.I wish you luck if you should try “Farmers”,and remember,there are quality men left out there just as there are quality just have to keep turning stones Mark A alloyantique@ Texas If you find a good web let me know I too am tired of all the lies and the requests. Hello am susan can someone please send me. I’m considering joining on a but have just started to do some research would you mind giving me pointers to this? You seem pretty well educated in. A disaster I joined POF met a nice guy Had chemistry on first date Lusty Second date was scheduled We spoke on phone and he said he was stoned from smoking pot Well after talking about it in length as I don’t date drug users we said goodbye but was still going to meet as he promised not to smoke he text back canceling our date and ending everything I was disappointed Pot came between a possible future relationship Why is he. Hey PHIL I have read a few comments here from you and this one is dated 9-23-17 This is 3-21-18 I assume you have found a women by now that was suitable for you and not a phony diva type that lied and sent you a fake photo and deceived you or gave you an excuse…I hope all is well Otherwise you can contact me so we can chat If you are in Colorado though that’s a ways from me b/c I am over here in West Virginia and live up in the beautiful mountains with my doggie Hilly Write if you want and tell me about yourself no fakeness here just genuine conversation and no games How old are you and what age were you or are you looking for? If you found someone let me know if not you can send me an e-mail…wkr2014hilly2014@ and thanks!
