For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date. Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.

If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female’s ignorance of the male mindset. At most, it is a reliable source of advice for women who want to improve their chances with the opposite sex.

When It’s OK to Date Someone Younger Than You, in Two Charts
Stephany Alexander Stephany Alexander In my opinion, the 3 biggest attraction killers that men are guilty of making: Bragging too much and not being a good listener.

Pictured below are some single users in their mid-thirties or early forties, taken from the first couple pages of my own local match search. As you can see below, the number of online daters peaks at 24, drops sharply at around 30, and then gradually tapers off, as the remaining singletons either find mates or withdraw themselves from contention: The bar chart here shows how the woman to man ratio changes over time.

This skewed mindset worsens with age; the median 42 year-old will accept a woman up to fifteen years younger, but no more than three years older. It shows messaging concentrations by age; for each vertical age bracket, the greenest areas have the most messages, the reddest have the fewest, and the yellow have the average.
10 Reasons Not to Date an Older Man

I’m really starting to like him, but I know it can’t get serious because of our age difference. But should age really matter? A big age difference doesn’t automatically equal a bad relationship–just think of Courteney Cox, 35, and hubbie David Arquette, But at your age, major gaps in maturity and interests between people who are even only a few months apart can be pretty obvious. That’s not to say that this love connection is a no-go, though. Just find out if your romance is right by asking yourself if you’re in it for the right reasons.
So let’s start with the not-so-good news about why you might be dating this guy. Do you have a history of going for younger guys? Are you avoiding older guys ’cause you have a bad track record of being hurt by them? Or because it’s intimidating–they move at a faster pace physically than you like? Also think about your own confidence level. Do you feel that you can’t attract someone who’s more on your level?

Online Dating: Good Thing or Bad Thing?

Looking around the room at other women.
I know a woman who dates an older man, and he jumps from profession to profession while trying to make a career in music take off. Early on I used to have a fit every week about what he could do to make more time for me, but at a certain point, after some compromising, you end up just trying to be supportive and patient. Especially if those things are free. While I love me some him, my partner has no problem with chilling indoors all day, catching up on his taped shows and eating the same rice dish every week.
