Yes, I'm still doing the online thing, and yesterday I ran a search of men to see who was new. I was searching in the 57 to 64 range. The usual came up: overweight, grizzled, ungroomed men, shirtless, holding a fish, wearing ball caps, scowling, looking for women 20 years younger.
So I decided to search my competition. Who are these women who are getting the guy I should be getting? I searched for women 57 and 58. It was like a 180 from the men. I was pretty amazed. There were many, many bright, well-kept, well-dressed, normal weight, articulate, attractive women. Of course there were the bleached blonde boob-job women in tank tops, and a few very homely ones, but all in all, they looked really good. I wanted to write to them and ask if we could be friends!
So I don't feel so bad that I'm not meeting anyone (right now) from OLD, since there seem to be so many attractive, together women also looking, and presumably fielding the same pathetic winks and poorly-written emails that I am. It just seems like we're shopping in an empty store!
