I’m 50 something year old man and your title made me curious. Someone else commented very nicely that maybe you should try some other ways of meeting men because what you’re doing obviously is not working well for you so far. You seem to recognize that even though you don’t explicitly state it in your article.
Thank you for your suggestion. And your point about food being a way to a man’s stomach — interesting.
I’m not active on online dating apps at the moment. I’m taking a break from them. I think, however, my issue with them is complex. I don’t know if you scrolled through the other comments but women who weighed in here tended to concur. So this issue isn’t unique to me.
I think part of problem is being in this mid to later stage of life, both party’s expectations, and the type and cost of the social media platform. Someone wrote in you get what you pay for. Often true, but I’ve found paid dating profiles to be no better and often worse.
So, yes. I’m going a different route. Time will tell if it’s any better. Who knows? Maybe something organically will happen in the midst of this. Stranger things have happened.
Thanks once again!
