Just about all the profiles from men want a petite, slim, hot, attractive lady. What about the rest of us? We can be the best woman around but men want beauty. I am afraid to post a photo. I would like people to get to know me before they find out I am no former Miss America. Don't get me wrong, I am not an ugly duckling but I am more average than hot. Also, I am a few pounds overweight but I am very active. Camping, motorcycling, traveling, and if I do say so myself, I am lots of fun. Do any of you other ladies out there feel this way? Also, I would like to hear from some of you guys regarding physical appearance.

Don't be so sure about that. I just got on this site a few days ago. I did upload a photo and i am not fine looking and I am a little overweight. But I have still had a whole bunch of winks and am communicating with some of them. I have met some really nice people on here...at least so far they are. I am very cautious about giving out personal info and I know how to pick out a scammer. I believe that sometimes it's the content of your profile rather than the picture. So, hang in there, girl. You don't have to be beautiful on the outside to find a man, and you have a beautiful and I'm sure you are beautiful on the inside. Sorry, I'm not a man. I am a straight female, just telling you what my experience has been thus far on this site.

Older men fantasize about sex. I have no problem with them looking for younger women. I would just like a man for a friend but they usually want more than that. They've been socialized to think that a relationship has to include intimacy. If a man is interested in me for more than friendship, I usually tell them to find a younger woman and if they have their eyes on one, for sure I encourage it big time. One man was concerned that it wouldn't be fair to his younger friend to marry her because as he got older they would have different interests. I said, don't worry you probably won't get real old and when you die, she will have some assets that she wouldn't otherwise have. I felt it unfair at any rate for him just to be sleeping with her...he calls it 'friends with benefits'...she is sleeping with a man her own age too, anyway, so it goes.....

I agree most men do not know what they want. They want to think with a head with no brains. Us older mature women know what we want. We can have fun and some men might be surprised with us older women. We are active, we have brains and know how to use them. Some of us may be a larger than petite, but for a person to judge the package by the size, they may be missing out on the chance of a lifetime. Sometimes the best is in a larger package.

I have not posted a photo as yet because I am the one behind the camera, not in front of the camera. My friends say I am nice looking and even though over weight I can still turn heads from time to time. In the near future I hope to have some photos taken and then I will post one. I dated a man for about three years that was five years younger. He claimed to be a Christian, but the things he pulled when he finally decided to break the relationship off was anything but Christian. If he can live with his actions, I can forgive him. Yes, I do enjoy cooking, raising a garden and other thngs. I cook from scratch and sometimes I use a recipe, other times it is a dab of this and a dash of that. I can cook as good over a camp fire as I can in a kitchen. I enjoy spending time with family and enjoy kids of all ages. My grandkids range in age from 2 years of age to 26 years of age. This summer I plan on taking some of my grandkids on road trips. The youngest grandson wants to go look for diamonds in Arkansas. My second oldest grand daughter loves art and photography. I am not sure where we will end up, but plan on having fun. I would enjoy finding a male companion who would enjoy some of the things I enjoy, but they want some little petite younger lady. I have male friends. However I would not date them as most are my son's age (45) give or take.

I dont think men really know what they want until they are confronted with what they asked for and then decide that is not it. I suppose there are a fair number of women in that category as well. I spent a lot of time alone to know what I want and can live with so I dont do this to men. But hasnt really helped.

Hey BennieATJ, Here is the exception, I'm looking for a 60-70 year old female, and can't find them because they're looking for a 50-60 year ald male. I'm looking for younger because of the reason stated in a previous post.

Hey Tootsie, Why is a 49ish (Non-Senior) good looking young lady having to blog on a web site like this? You might look outside your front door and be surprised. PS Used to know a nice Tootsie (Miller) next door in NC when I was young.

These Texas gals are tough, I remember one, a teacher at Rice University that I met in 54, hard to forget them. Also, I don't really think this young 76 is all that bad, even with the mileage.

Sometimes us older guys just want someone that will outlive us because we don't wish to go through the other trials and tribulations that made us a widower. I am also a YOUNG 76, but with a lot of mileage.

well ladies i'm with you, these men 55 or older think their hot stuff. i think it's sad that most men don't care if a woman likes them for who they are as long as the woman looks hot. i guess they just don't want a woman for a companion. i wish there was a site where strait ladies with similar interest could communicate or even get together for crafting or other activities.

Boy I'm with you on the part about men wanting just young petite hot women. Whose to say we don't have the same to offer. About the picture--I didn't post one but when I sent one that was the last I heard after several weeks of great conversations. I'm like you a little overweight, not bad looking but not a beauty queen, fun to be with, allot to offer but theses things seemed to be overlooked. We can't all be 50 and a perfect size 6. Surely someone likes an older woman with some meat on her bones. Shows she's probably a good cook and loves people.

I agree, men want a cute little petite thing to look good as a bobble on their arm. They need to take a good look in the mirror and realize they are not the greatest looking catch in the world. Yes, they may have a 5 or 6 figure income and what does that get you besides a bimbo and a bobble on your arm. You have someone who you can show case and they will take your money along the way. To each their own. I am a 65 plus, slightly overweight gradmother of 6 kids. I am a very active person who enjoys traveling, rving, camping, gardening, canning, cooking, fishing and most anything else. If us women listed our income in the 5 or 6 figure income range we would have men coming out of the wood work for us to support them. I am not looking for someone to support me nor do I want to support them. I would just like them to be my equal and make interesting memories together. I want someone to walk beside me, not in front of me, nor behind me. I too gather up my dogs and hit the road traveling. They give us unconditional love and will always be there. However it would be nice if we had a nice person to share time and experiences with. It is always nice to share a trip or an experience with a human where we can talk about it.

WOW !!. I just found out that we can put information about our blog in the View/Comment under the person's profile. This means we can invite them to join us on our blog and we can communicate right away instead of having to wait to wink at them every 30 days if you are not a gold member. I am going to go to the ones that winked me and let them know that we can talk right away. Bye!

Well, I finally got the courage to post a photo. I hope that the same thing that happened to Pommie doesn't happen to me. I will be crushed. I do not take a good picture. I really look better in life than in my photo, but I can't do anything about it. I have had several gentlemen asking for my photo, but I expect that they will not contact me again once they see it. Oh well. We'll see.

Hey Tootsie Girl, glad to hear from you. I also would like to make some female friends here. They usually blog once or twice and then nothing. I guess they have better things to do. I enjoy talking (typing?) and meeting new people, male or female. But it is still bugging me that I cannot wink back at someone who winks me in response to my first contact. Anyway, I live in the upper midwest, which is no secret if you have seen my profile. Would like to meet someone from around this area. I know it is starting to get cold here now. It is going to be a long winter. I will probably be talking on this blog more. I hate to go out in the winter. I have a lot of crafts that I do in the winter. I have everything delivered, food, rx, pizza. Can't forget the pizza. We have coffee hours and get togethers here in my building also. Mostly, though, I stay in my den and do my crafts. I like scrapbooking. I have 10 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren and I'm only 63 years young. I am outside most of the time when the weather gets warm. I like to ride motorcycles, go camping and just me and my dog jump in my van and go on adventures. Well, enough about me. If someone wants to be my friend just blog, blog, blog. Bye.

I joined this site mainly to make friends.  I have no illusions about men 50+ wanting women at leasssttt 10 years younger than themselves.  Put down your income as 75G's or more a year, and you will get a few 30 years olds looking for a sugar mama.  

Where are the sites for 40+ women looking to make friends with straight women their age?

Also, maybe if someone created a site for people 80 and over, women would get some men to wink at us who were 70 pretending to be 60.
