OTOH, if they have no income and aren’t good looking, then they may be doomed to perpetual disappointment in online dating, unless they’re willing to date women who are at or below their league in looks and/or older than their stated age preferences. So in additon to lying about height and probably income (if listed), they’re lying about their age, too?
3) I’m actually trying to date age-appropriately, but the men who’ve shown interest to me at age 45 , look mid-50’s to mid-60’s to me. And trying to date younger and out of their league?
I have two friends who met and married through their dates on Match.
So assuming the women here are serious about relationships, she has to pay to find it.
4) Curiously, I’ve garnered 0% interest in men at age 40-45. Could be because they’ve only filtered to below their ages so I don’t show up in their search?
Should I lie about my age to get into their searches? So now I do mental calcs to men’s heights and subtract a few inches from their listed height if they’re under 6-ft. I know it shouldn’t matter, but I don’t find the proportions of a man at 5-4 to be appealing.
And if you look at a typical 40 year old woman’s search preferences, it’ll generally read 35-45.The data shows that a man is only 22% less likely to respond to an older woman than a younger woman if she initiates contact.This is the exact same observation I make in Finding the One Online.I can’t say it’s a hardship filtering through them to find the ones worth getting to know.I’m not looking for a “relationship” but “fun” so this works for me. But if a woman is serious about marriage and family, I don’t know if the free sites are conducive for that.
