Black over 40 dating man
I am told that women want to settle down and have kids, etc., but their actions seem to be to the contrary.
At singles events, women come in groups and are reluctant to talk to men.
I have tried a combination of online dating, speed dating, professional singles events, volunteering, happy hours etc. I thought that online dating would be great since you are essentially pre-screening people for dates.
I have found that I get no responses from any women online and the only women who respond to my ad are usually much older and don’t meet any of my criteria outlined in my profile.
The 35-40-year-old women who ARE ready for marriage, unfortunately, are roundly ignored by the men they desire – their 35-40-year-old peers.
These women are youthful and find themselves far more attracted to men in their 30’s than their 40’s. You say you’re looking for a woman in her mid-30’s. But if none of them are looking for you, your wheelhouse is going to be women in their late 30’s to early 40’s: Find the people who want you.
Unfortunately, I lost that friendship anyway by dating someone that I thought I was “supposed” to date.
Now, at almost 40yrs old knowing who I am, being comfortable with who I am and wanting/knowing that I deserve a good, God-centered, loving, healthy, and starting off as friends type of relationship, I want to explore my options.
With my daughter nearing her senior year in high school, I’ve been looking at reentering the dating world but I’m finding that I’m running into more perceptions similar to the the first blind date situation described above.
In high school, although I never dated or had a boyfriend, I was very much open to exploring my options.
In college that somehow changed although I had a friend who was a great guy, interested in dating me, and who was white but I was scared to pursue it because of what I thought others would say and I didn’t want to lose his friendship.
Finding your website came at the right time as I have questions regarding dating outside my race.
First, how do I (for a lack of a better word) position myself so that I am meeting men who date black women?
In online situations, women say they want desperately to meet a nice guy like me, but never answer my response to their profile. They have a lot of dating options, they’re building their careers, and there isn’t a clear urgency to settle down.
