I've always wanted to get away with being younger ;-) And now I have. I have been told my entire life I look younger than I am. Since men of my age won't touch women of my age I guess I have just decided to play their stupid game.
I changed my age on my dating profile to 31. YES, that is how old I am from now on in the dating world. And it is no surprise that I pulled it off.
I chatted with a very nice young man of 34 tonight. And he did not suspect that I am not the age I listed. We are meeting for coffee Monday afternoon in Manhattan. He's 5' 8 and the build I like, not skinny! He was funny and his photo was adorable.
I'm keeping to my plan. 1 hour or less for a first time meet. A coffee date is short and therefore is an easy way to split fast, if we hate each other and I think it is fairly easy to tell that in 10 minutes or less anyway.
I looked at the profiles of the guys who checked me out tonight and surprise surprise they were all pretty much my age, which was NOT happening before at only 5 years older. Since what they see is a photo after putting in the age range and hitting the search button, g-d I really hate to say it because I know there are a lot of male readers of my blog, but men are just stupid!
But I absolutely refuse to sit home dateless and be angry and bitchy because of a number. If I want to meet a man close in age to me this is just how I am going to have to do this from now on.
