does dating in your own country? australia is to be avoided!
« on: November 07, 2018, 03:32:01 AM »
Hi,

What is dating in your own country like? In Australia if you are past 45yrs things kind of get less than optimal

You have online dating . I tried 5 sites and met 1 less than 1 female  in 10 months.
You have speed dating and funny enough,  i only make 1 age group (45-59)event every 6 weeks. WE have no shortage of women over 50 or overweight women with 2 kids.

Nightclubs are not for over 30's .

 Here is the very best bit. THe state I am in 'Victoria' has a male shortage. Many articles are written on the topic that really claim there just isnt MANY/ANY men to meet especially for women over 35.

So for males this is actually as good as it gets here !

hey Andrew, maybe edit your subject thread "does dating in your own country?"  to the whole sentence  "what does dating in your own country look like?".

It helps to actually understand what you are talking about. as for Australia I met some Aussies but have no idea what dating is like there.

It's always the person and not the place.  If you are intelligent, decent looking, can communicate eloquently, have some manners and not poor then you'll do ok.

Well if your English is as good as your dating skills than you have some challenges.

Curious do you sail? Is there a religious institution that you attend? What is your social contact beyond the internet?

I would search RUA as there are threads that discuss this topic with good insights.

Are you a native English speaker or do you just have trouble writing on a computer/phone?

There's people everywhere, if you have a problem finding female companionship then the first place to look for a solution is in the mirror. Don't for one second imagine that there's a mythical place in the world full of round heeled bints, gagging for it, and desperate for your company.

If you want to be successful with women from other countries (which is much harder than in your own environment) then you need to be match fit at relationships and 'dating'. So, expand your social horizons, understand that there's more than one hole for every pole and that perfection does not happen in nature and you might well find that your own community is the source of the life long partnership you seem to want.

ok dont get too serious  about this post. 

Some guys must have a lot of time on their hands to worry about someones writing . Maybe address your concerns to management.

I am with a religious institution you can say, I have joined a singles clubs, a local gym and now I am going back to dancing lessons for socials.

Welcome to the forum Andrew

I see you have encountered two of our single 'experts' on how to find a FSU wife....

I was your age and had no trouble finding a date at home or in the FSU with women in their forties  with the bodies of twenty something's  ))

Kylie lookalikes, if even female, are likely to be older than our hero's preferred age. She might float your (and my) boat but she'd sink his!

Ooooh Kylie <3
