What exactly are single men over 50 looking for in a woman? I tried online dating and found it to be disheartening. Maybe I’m crazy and shouldn’t expect intelligent, attractive, successful men to contact me. I mean I am no longer the super slim twenty something and I have a few wrinkles around my eyes. If I believe what I read and see in the media it’s time I accept finding love when I’m just 2.5 years away from 60 is hopeless.

I lack serious human connection. Making friends at this stage of life has proven to be impossible. The places I made friends before my divorce are no longer open to me here in this place. Close connections are key to happiness and living a long life. I don’t want a short life. I want 50 more years.


I am always learning something new about life. My life is made richer by friends, family, travel, experiences, books and hobbies.

  2. I need to confess. There is a phone app called Facetune. It lets you whiten your teeth and smooth wrinkles. Although I do try not to overdo it.


  3. Oh, Dede, don’t get discouraged. Online dating is the worst. I’m your age and I know how difficult it can be. From your picture and your posts, I’d say you’ve got a lot more going for you than most women your age. Hang in there.
