Are you saying I should ignore men’s stated preferences, Evan? 2) I only look at income if the guy is not great looking to determine whether or not how much he makes offsets his lack of looks. Now the curious thing to me is that a whole lot of not-so-good-looking men in their late 40s/50s are leaving their income unlisted, so my question is why are they leaving this important field blank?
If they’re making good money, they could potentially become better looking in most women’s eyes.
I can’t say it’s a hardship filtering through them to find the ones worth getting to know.
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?
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.
Not sure that sits well with my desire for honesty in a partner if I can’t exhibit it myself. I’ve had a few dates with men stating they’re 5-7 to 6-6. So now I’m not considering guys under 6′, because he’s probably really 5-9, which I do find appealing.
It seems that the under-6-ft guys are definitely adding several inches to their height. 6) So men with average to sub-par looks aren’t listing their income, which could potentially offset their lack of looks or age, are sending me generic cut & paste intro messages, which shows me they really didn’t bother reading my profile. They need to know their league and/or up their online game if they want to play out of their league.Namely, that if you look at a typical 40 year old man’s search preferences, it will generally read 27-35.And if you look at a typical 40 year old woman’s search preferences, it’ll generally read 35-45.
