Agreed, kjs -- the first person I met turned out to be a faker. A couple guys after that ghosted or tried to tell me how to start a relationship by rushing me to meet. Never do that to an introvert. I ended up on a site in late May and like you, met a normal guy. The end of this month will be six months that we've been involved :)

ok heres my complaint ...why is everyone my age so friggin short. I'm not having much luck online and really like meeting people in a situation better. But honestly I go out dancing and to gatherings and am in a room of 40 people and there's  only 2 people taller then me!   I want someone taller then me, I may have to change my mind  about this.

I'm 5'9" .....does height differences bother anybodyelse?

Ha, the height thing made me chuckle!  NG is 5'11''.  I am 5'5" 1/2.  With heels, I am respectable to him, but he still calls me short.  MY DH was 6'2'', so he is short to me!  It is all relative.

Ha! LH was 6'2" and claimed he wasn't tall. I would say when you are 5'4", it's all relative :) NG is 6' and it's funny that I see him as sorta short.

I had to chuckle at this.  I have no idea how tall my first husband was.  He was never able to stand and walk.  I got used to towering over him. I had to bend over to kiss him.

My second husband was 6"4+.  He had to bend over to kiss me...and I occasionally stood on a step for a face-to-face hug and kiss.   :) :)

My LH was 6'3, so every guy I've dated seems short. The height doesn't bother me though. What bothers me is the lack of energy in guys my age. I'm 41. They act like they're in their 70s.

I'm 5'9" I gave up on wearing heels decades ago because of this. My first husband was 6'4" my LH was 5'10" if you could get him to stand up straight. He had broke his back several times and had probally a foot of his back all fused together. The guys I date now are typically my height. I would like a taller guy but it's not a deal breaker. As a 49yo I find the guys who want to date me are 56-65 . The lack of engery is a huge issue. I love movies but I don't want to sit and watch them all the time. That and dinner out seems to be all that most of these guys can handle.   Really, mini golf, bowling, a nice walk, or something more active is way to much?  I just don't get it!

imissdow -- interesting you say that. NG is 52 and certainly loves to just chill (also broke his back a few years ago ... lower back issues galore) but we had a great time at one of those escape rooms. However, while I go to the gym, I am not a particularly outdoorsy sort so chilling (and cooking!) works for me. Now, back to my steaks for tonight ;)

If I mention the gym they normally laugh. One guy did go to the gym with me and said, "never again." He did  his own thing. It's not like I was running him through my weight routine. I miss going to the gym with my LH. He helped motivate and challenge me. Not just in the gym.

I agree imissdow. Movies are nice, but I want to go out and do fun activities too. Be active!

OMG I'm 54 but I'm viewed as active even in an active group.....

I'm capable of relaxing but yes I need to be doing. I have a picture of myself rock climbing in my profile.....not because I love rock climbing( it was a one time thing) but to show I'm active.

,,,,,,,and yet i still get people 10 years older then me that look like a walk by the lake would get them breathng hard contacting me.

Realistically I'd like to meet someone of similar age and similar activity level....how hard can this be???? :P

Around 50 or so, men start to shrink, too.

5'2", so height isn't a big deal for me.   :D   


Yup, the energy thing - I'm having a different kind of a problem though.  Guy that I've seen a few times is super active, but mostly wants to do his thing - stand up paddle boarding, surfing, rock climbing.  At my age, it's unlikely that I'll keep up with him with his sports.  My dancing, hiking and going to the gym seems boring to him.   sigh .......   
Have I told you lately how much I love you?

Trying -- maybe you all could meet in the middle since you like hiking, which it seems like he might enjoy as well. And then you could always swim while he paddle boards. A girl's gotta keep her own pleasures but have fun with her fella as well :) That is, if you're both open to a bit of compromise.
