No flowers. Just leave her be.

OP, it's over. Move on. There will be other women. Why not get yourself a social life, so you can meet women closer to your age?

Yes, she over reacted to a stupid pic, and you over reacted to her over reacting.

This is a lot of juvenile drama, don't you have two daughters to raise? If it's drama you are craving, just wait til they hit their teens, you'll get more than your share.
I am raising my daughters, and no, drama is not what I am craving which is one of the things that I cherished the most about us, that we were always on good terms with each other sans this.

Guess you found out that someone who was taking you seriously didn't like the idea that you were still "eyeing" other women to the extent that you'd save her picture rather than just look at it and pass it by.

You've already blown up her phone twice, and bombarded her with emotional confessionals, laying your heart bare, and so forth. "No" means no. Most parents near your age, of teenagers give their kids the advice "S/he's not the only fish in the sea". Good advice. You're behaving like a teenager. Accept reality and move on.

Then why did you save the picture? Even if you have porn saved, that's still relatively remote and non threatening but you saved one that you can actually contact

I agree. A 17 year age difference may not be a problem if one person is 30 and the other 47, (or one person 60 and the other 77 -think about that) because you are both mature, working adults with a life history who have finished your education. IMHO, a 35 year old dating a young woman just out of high school is just creepy.

Just think, last year she was still a high school senior and you were 34. If you had met her then would you have asked her to her high school prom?

Would you want your daughters in high school dating men in their 30s? And, don't say that she is "mature beyond her years", she is a college freshman. Sheesh! Grow up and date women closer to your age.

That's true of most people walking the Earth. Humanity's diversity is one of its strengths that enriches us all (as well as one of its greatest challenges). Go out and enjoy the diversity. There are others that will touch you in their own unique way.
