…nto dating, I have found men my age to be incredibly self absorbed and not curious about me at all. One of the men asked me why I didn’t want to see him anymore when i broke it up and when I told him (as nicely as I could) that he wasn’t interested in me as a person, he became incredibly defensive.
Wow! Yep, that’s been my experience as well. My solution is similar. I’ve been meeting men 15 to 30 years younger. It’s been very helpful. They don’t bring the same type of baggage.
Single men in their mid-50s to 60s that I’ve been meeting haven’t bothered to keep up on their normal hygiene and personal healthcare, want to be taken care of by a wife, and seem self-absorbed and defensive. What has happened to them? It’s sad and heartbreaking.
So, I’ve indicated I’m open to younger men. I’ve discovered some of these men prefer older women. To my surprise I’m finding that I’m connecting with them well:).
