Hi everyone! I am recently single after 8 years of marriage and am finding that dating has changed drastically due to the internet. I'm trying to be selective by reading profiles and looking for someone who might be compatible with me. My question is, do I want to reply to an email of someone who says he is looking for a woman between the ages of 18-75? That bugs me. Should I not read too much into it? What do you think? -Christina

I wouldn't out too much into it either. I would respond and see what comes back. Did he fill out a complete profile? What type of relationship is he seeking?

Hi Christina, Good Luck on the site - I would not put too much emphasis on the ages as it isn't important to some but they also might be lazy or just not care as not looking for anything serious. I was married to a man 26 yrs older than me for 23 years but I have no regrets on having married him with regards to the age. Just follow your natural instincts and see how the conversation goes - the more you communicate the more you will know. Be aware of scammers and guys who are here for the grab bag only. Have fun. Smoosh

Hi there interesting one....? the cynic in me would say that a younger man looking for a much older lady, either needs to be mothered or needs what she might be leaving behind lol! But stay selective and stick to your instincts...and welcome to the world of blogs, where one comment leads to another comment....and then the fight started (long story);-)

Most of us have an age span in mind when we set up our profile info on who we are looking for. But what happens when you way you are looking for someone who is 30 to 35 and the person you are just DYING to meet is 36? And he decides he is out of your age range and never makes contact? To me, that would explain why someone says 18 to 75. He doesn't want to rule out the potential love of his life based on a number. It wouldn't have put me off...

You could always reply and say you made a mistake on your profile and you are actually 73 .... see what the response is?? Could just be that he skipped the age range bit, who knows, and of course we all have our own preferences. Personally I find that almost without exception I get on best with those within about 10 years either side of my own age but I know of a few people in lasting relationships where the age gap is bigger.

Trust me Curvy. Go with Oz on this one...lol! I would suggest exactly what she has. Be honest up front about yourself. And if someone in your age range responds, but has a much broader range on his profile, then ask him why. It's simple. Be upfront. Good luck--True

Quoting ariesram: WHY? Love has NO upper age limit...well, it shouldn't have!

No maybe LOVE doesn't, but LOVE does not always have any common sense attached to it either. We have all seen examples of that. Think you have to get real about what has the possibility for working out, right from the start other wise you are just fooling yourself and the other person. You could say that if you met someone 30 years older or younger than yourself and fell in love then it will be alright, but are you being real about it? Can someone that is say 48 have much in common with someone who is 18? Or would they really want to be with someone who is 78? I think you have to be honest with yourself right from the start about what really is acceptable, and what your limits are. What the point of getting into it if you just end up saying that you cant handle it, or that its all too much?


Life is only as wonderful as you think it is.

Well I agree with you Christina. Have to ask how indiscriminate can you get, shows they cant be that serious and maybe they are just after anything they can get. Its not that hard to click and choose, and even if age is not that much of issue surely a possible 30 year gap must be too much??
