A wink says either that he’s lazy, he’s illiterate, or, more likely, that he’s winking at 50 people at a time to see who responds to him. One set of rules applies to men, another applies to women.He may actually be a decent guy – but he’s a decent guy who is pretty indiscriminate about the women he contacts. 3) I just think it’s in poor form to tell anyone what to do. And yes, there’s a logical explanation for this double standard. No, you shouldn’t send a follow-up email to a guy if he hasn’t written back.She told me that she received over 500 emails in her first week. This reinforces why women are NOT obliged to write back polite rejection letters AND it reinforces why just because older men want attractive young women, they are unlikely to get a letter back. See my blog post “As Valuable as Your Options” if this isn’t clear to you. Plenty of women who are exasperated with the flood of emails delete their entire inbox just to keep things manageable.If she has 500 potential future spouses in the mix, why would she date a guy fifteen years older? What they DON’T do, and probably should is HIDE THEIR PROFILES.We don’t generally hang out in bars, our friends don’t throw parties every weekend (and the ones we go to seem populated with couples).Our flirting skills are rusty to nonexistent, some of us are still too preoccupied with work or kids to go out, and when do we go out, unless it's specifically an event for "mature" folks, everyone is 27.She could date a guy that’s just as successful and kind, but closer to her age. But as much as the young women complain about all of the awful guys who write to them, they generally refuse to stem the tide by removing themselves or going without a picture.
Instead of spending half your day deleting profiles of men you’d never consider, you could be talking to one or two decent guys at once.
Most women are not afflicted with this problem, but it is a real one, especially for the younger set. Oh, should you follow up with an email if you’ve been ignored? It wouldn’t cost much to try, but I don’t think the results will be that great.
Men are looks-driven and I don’t know many who ignore someone who piques their interest. Guys generally don’t ignore emails from women to whom they’re attracted.
1 dating service for local singles to meet other baby boomer singles”; at Mature Singles Only.com, “everyone is screened”; and Baby Boomer People promises “sincere baby boomers looking for long-term relationships today! The “Boomer Singles” section of Mingle2is free, but most of the profiles featured on the home pages are 20- and 30-somethings with usernames like freebird and slackerdude. I can’t decide which is worse: those, or the unapologetic emphasis on “senior” at places like Senior and Senior Friend
If I do dip my toe in the digital dating pool, I don’t want to waste a lot of money. Almost all the sites offer a free trial, but once that expires, membership can get pricey. On a number of them, it’s almost impossible to get that information until after you’ve signed up for the free trial, then they start trying to upgrade you.
