I am back to these boards after a LONG hiatus looking for a little advice. Hoping that the guys can better advise me than what I heard at the SINGLES board.
I am 50+ and a whole lot different than most 50+ women. I ride a Honda VTX1300R, lift weights three times a week (not to bulk but to tone), fish and kayak reguarly, and generally enjoy more guy type activities so I do meet men out there. I am also still hot enough that my children's friends hit on me. I'm intelligent, successful in everything BUT relationships and kind. Most women hate me (until they really get to know me, my true friends are loyal), most guys love me.
Here is my dilemma. WHY can't I get a 50+ year old man to call me on a date?!?! Don't they do that anymore? I would really rather date someone in my age range although the thoughts of this are quickly going down the drain. I broke up with someone that I truly do consider my soulmate three years ago and I didn't really start thinking about getting out there again until the past couple of years although I admit, I put no real effort into it thinking it would just happen (never been single for more than a few months). Now I am putting in the effort and even though I have met and hung out with a few 50+ men that I would really like to get to know better, they never initiate contact even though when they are with me they are like 'you are so great'. I am trying to change the way I think and contact them, but it is hard. Whenever I do reach out, they respond though so it isn't that they don't want to see me. But why don't they contact me? I haven't had a real date in two years and this is getting a bit old.
