I'm perfect.
Everyone else is the problem.

Because prostitution isn't legal in most states.

Because anyone worth a **** already got married and stayed married. Over 35 singles are basically the damaged goods bin.

Because if your date is getting paid, they work a little harder to please the customer.

I mean, who wants a bad Yelp review?

You have to get out there and get to know people. Definitely a grind but I think it's totally worth it.

Is the OP a dude or a girl? Most of my single friends over 35 are getting the poontachet way more than I am. From the pictures they send me it doesn't appear to suck too bad

I can set you up with my 38 year old SIL. She's legitimately hot. Not just in the forbidden fruit type of way.

Question for the single over 35 and never married ones…. Was there a dude/chick that you should have married and didn't? I find it hard to believe in the 17 years of adult dating people never cross paths with someone of the opposite sex that they are compatible with.

I'm not ugly or damaged. I am picky. At this stage of life, I'm not willing to settle.

I would rank myself in the top 20% for my age and gender, based on what I have to offer.

It was a piece of cake at 50. Women had already figured out that the HS quarterback was going to $#@& everything on 2 legs, and maybe the the short guy with a good career, dry wit, ranchito, and ginormous peen was the way to go.

CNN is an enemy of the state and should be treated as such.

Because 55 and alone is better than the alternative.

LOL.

At this stage in life prince charming already got caught and is getting BJ's all the time by his hot grateful wife.

If you met prince charming he would run away screaming.

Gonna leave this here for all the guys and girls.

I mean, some folks decided they weren't willing to settle. Just don't think the right one(s) have been identified

I'm divorced. If I don't get married again, I'm okay with it. It is better than the alternative of settling just to get married again.

This is one of the alternate realities I'd like to glimpse. How would completely legitimate, safe, regulated sex work change things in a place like the US? It would absolutely change the dynamic of dating in your 40s I think.

Would other addictions be better or worse? Would mental health improve overall? Would it be better or worse for things like domestic abuse?

I know a guy that has a quarterly trip to Vegas to clear his head. Nice guy, older, completely socially capable, well off. Doesn't want the drama of a full time night woman, would rather rent one that he can pick out trim package on and return to the dealership when he's done.

My wife and I have a couple of friends in this dating age range. They are struggling with it. My daughter has some friends and co-workers in their 30's that also have complaints about it.

The guys complain that the women never look remotely close to their online dating site pics.

The women complain that the guys are mostly older divorced creepers who just want a hookup.

I told them both that if something were to happen to my wife or our marriage and I became single again, that would be it for me. Thinking about entering the dating pool again is a freaking nightmare.

Plus I would be trading time for stuff I want to do in order to impress strangers from Tinder or Bumble or Coffee & Bagel or whatever is the app of the month.

see most guys use the shotgun approach, shoot and hope you hit something

i use the sniper approach, find a match and start doing research on a similar topic you like and then slide in the DM's
