Local sex hookups with women over 60
When High50's Monica Porter tried Tinder for the first time she was irritated by unreliable young men, but on using the dating app again this year she found guys in their 30s 'like teenagers after some fun' I first downloaded Tinder on to my smartphone in the summer of 2013, soon after the innovative new dating app was launched in the UK.
That was the year of my great Internet dating adventure and it seemed an intriguing experiment to try. When I discovered that Tinder automatically takes some basic details from your Facebook profile, including your correct age, I cringed with embarrassment. Far from putting off the legions of 20-something men looking for 'action', my age was virtually an aphrodisiac for many of them.
And I haven't even mentioned those stupid-looking sleeve tattoos, now commonplace.
I Right-Swiped And Met Ted I have matched with a few charming and thoroughly decent men, and had some enjoyable dates.
We exchanged messages in the build-up to a meeting. And when I mentioned that I was watching an entertaining cop show on TV, he said he didn't own a set and only watched vegan cookery demonstrations on You Tube.
He said he loved cooking and sent me photos of dishes he had concocted, various platefuls of colorful mushy stuff.
Although he looked every bit his age, he seemed lively and good-natured and was clearly game to meet new ladies to help take his life forward.
But I wondered, a little sadly, which woman on the app would swipe right for 'yes' for the elderly, frail gent. Moving down a notch, I gasped when I spotted a family friend, a long-married man and paterfamilias with a horde of offspring, as well as several grandchildren. Grey locks flowing, a naughty smile playing on his lips, he announced that he was 'up for anything'.
The fact that I had turned 61 two weeks earlier didn't bother me. I knew this Tinder business was a young person's game. The fact is, young men always have and always will fantasize about older women. The Arrogance Of Youth The thing about young men, especially in today's digital world, where all arrangements are subject to change and attention spans are minuscule, is that they are infuriatingly unreliable.
Most striking is the large number of men in their mid-to-late 30s who have not yet settled into long-term relationships. So, call me old-fashioned, but in the end I simply got fed up with their flighty behavior. I have just been having another little spell on Tinder, and what a transformation since those early days!
Let the world see how amazing you are on the outside and your amazing character will do the rest.
