I’m a 42 year old single male who recently left a 5 year relationship for various reasons, but mainly because I wanted kids and she did not.
I thought that since I was an attractive, fit, well-educated, financially and emotionally secure guy that I would have no problem finding a woman in her mid 30s to settle down with and start a family.
I have tried a combination of online dating, speed dating, professional singles events, volunteering, happy hours etc. I thought that online dating would be great since you are essentially pre-screening people for dates.
I have found that I get no responses from any women online and the only women who respond to my ad are usually much older and don’t meet any of my criteria outlined in my profile.
I constantly analyze myself and worry that I am going to lose him.
‘So they want women in their late 20s or early 30s.
Why would they like someone who, if she can still have children, would need to have them straight away?
When I remember who I was when I was 21 compared to who I am now, I see 2 different people.
Age is not just a number - with time, we grow emotionally and evolve as a person with the things we experience throughout the years. In the past, I've dated guys that young; but that's as far as it would go. She must really yearn for those old "college" days???
