I assume the reason for this is they can get younger women to respond to them, so why would they go for me when they have a chance with the 45 year-old version of me?

If their first wife was their age, like a college sweetheart or whatever, they probably feel entitled to a newer model, so to speak. It’s frustrating, not to mention depressing and more than a little humiliating.

I’m not ashamed of my age and hiding it seems phony.

When I meet men in person in my daily life, I get a better response because they see the whole me, hear my voice, get a sense of what I’m like, all before they know how old I am, meaning I can be defined by other qualities.

I’ve noticed after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to almost nothing.

It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.Since Im in very good shape physically it doesn’t seem a problem when I disclose my real age when someone makes initial contact.Match is a much more age criteria oriented site than say POF.Older men have a huge blind spot when it comes to age.They refuse to even consider women their own age, even if she’s fit and attractive.More unhappy couples are getting divorced when the kids leave the house. We also know that dating online does not mean that you’re not dating men you meet in real life. If you meet a guy through friends, at the market, at a concert, great.
