Dating someone eight years older
Some were intent on finding another lifemate in short order, while others seemed more interested in sampling different personalities and lifestyles.A gripe shared by many women I met concerned the fellow who arrived at the meetup bearing little resemblance to the guy in the profile.Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.
Over the course of several months of online dating, I discovered that the pool of available older women is vast and diverse (as is true of men, although perhaps to a lesser extent) and that with a little effort, a reasonably intelligent, halfway-presentable person can usually generate some interest on dating websites. We’ve survived death and divorce, raised families, managed careers and built support networks of family and friends.
And even though procreation is off the table, I picked up clear signals from the women I met online that the meter is running, so it’s best to get on with things.
