Middle age men and dating
At 33, I found it much harder to meet men than it had been in my early twenties.When I set up a profile on Ok Cupid, I was inundated with messages from men in their late forties, fifties and even some in their sixties.I specified that I would date men in their early thirties to early forties - “no exceptions", I wrote.A few men didn't listen, but I managed to weed out most of them.(And though he constantly disparaged her for it while they were together, he also grudgingly admitted he chose her for “school smarts", too).
Fresh out of high school, my father had been her first kiss, her first sexual experience, her first love.But this was the first time it occurred in person and with such aggression.Two years earlier, my relationship of nearly a decade ended.“I don't think it's your writing he's interested in,” she said.I thought back to the white-haired gentleman at the bar who was easily old enough to be my father and shook my head. Over the next couple of weeks, Bob sent me several samples of his writing without a trace of any innuendo or flirtation.
