I'm far more interested in their personality, sense of humor, intelligence, and any other special talents that they have.

I couldn't agree with you more!!

I have tried dating sites but I have found most of the men my age (64) just look old and unattractive. I'm no spring chicken but I am usually taken for 10-15 years younger than my age. However I'm not going to look for a guy in his early 50's.

Those aren't "awesome hot uniforms." Those are beautiful young women who would look good in just about anything.

I'm going with no on this one. I'm 57 years old and when I graduated in 1980, I'd say maybe 10-15% of my graduating class was over weight. I had 525 in my class. LOL I just took out our group pic and counted.


Wasn't the norm at all back then. Fast forward to today and seemingly 40-50% of kids of graduating age are chubby.

We just returned from Greece and it struck me how very attractive the young men there are. But it was painfully apparent they don't age well. The old men are quite fat and bald. Smoking is so prevalent there, and many are out of work, so there is a lot of sitting around drinking and smoking.

OTOH, a Dutch couple our age (60s) befriended us, and both were very fit and tan, engaged in all kinds of projects and activities. Every time I saw the Dutch guy I was struck by his attractiveness.

I notice looks all the time. But I appreciate all the qualities as well. Not mutually exclusive.

I care about how I look (no gray for me) but at this point in time, make-up is not going to avail much, living at the pool or beach. We all hang out in our bathing suits and it's just fine...

I get up, look in the mirror, and

Then I go out and see how so many people are younger and more attractive than ever before.

I think my database is too skewed to really pigeonhole people as to if they are "attractive" or not. Don't look in mirrors all that much, either, or do very much comparison.

If I'm gonna categorize the general population I see, it's more likely to be 'there's a happy person' or 'oh dear, they don't seem very happy today'.

Also, if they are wearing much makeup, then usually I'm not likely to want to meet them since wearing a mask seems false and I wonder what else they aren't being honest about. But, and I suppose, fortunately, my database is a bit skewed. I'm sure other folks pay much more attention to 'attractiveness' and consider makeup to be an improvement.

I look in the mirror and think I look OK (passable). Then I see a photo of myself, or the overhead CCTV when you walk into a store, that's when I go .
