My post was too long & got truncated by the BK police... sorry - I tend to get wordy. I'd just add that in my opinion your assumption that age is the deciding factor in whether someone gets many positve responses on here is erroneous. We're all individuals, and we place varying degrees of importance on various attributes in a potential date/mate. Age is certainly one but there are many others, including but not limited to children at home/pets/distance /smoking or not/religion/etc.

I would venture to guess the facts that we do not have a 'partner' and that we enjoy riding motorcycles is common to a large majority of BK members - regardless of age or gender. That's why most of us are here, right? As a group we're predominatly single and unattached and we like to ride. By and large we're here hoping to meet someone of the opposite sex who has these attributes in common. From reading between the lines (and from the title of this blog) it appears you're assuming the majority of the 'mature' (your word for older than 'X' years - I don't know what number you had in mind) gals on here are largely ignored because of their age - correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not real smart but from what I've observed in 47 years on this rock most of us prefer the company of someone roughly our own age. I guess that's because someone your own age is more likely to have common life experiences & interests than someone substantially older or younger. I'd add that the 'over or under' range gets wider as we get older. At 47, I'm more likely to have something in common with someone 10 years older or younger than I am than I did when I was 24. Another variable is the "what will people think" factor. If you're seeing someone significantly younger, you run the risk of being thought an 'old fool'. If they're way older, some may think you're an opportunist - or even a gold digger. Granted, some folks worry more about what other people think than others. Personally, I wouldn't say I 'worry' per se, but I do care about perceptions and how I am generally regarded by the public at large. I think most of us do, and in my opinion that's healthy and normal.

ok....can't speak for other women my age...although judging from Teach and Charmz...they sound similar. You thought Hossy that we couldn't keep up with men 10 years our junior...to be honest I'm not sure that they could keep up with us...lol!. My energy level is sky high...work 45-50 hours a week, if I'm doing shows at the theater have rehearsal 2-3 nights per week.....I walk 4 times a week and jog and power walk with my 28 year old daughter in law several times a week and have aerobics class twice a week....spend time with family and friends...can dance and sing till dawn...get the picture????? Most women in their 50's and 60's don't sit in a rocking chair with a shawl around their shoulders....we are out there living life....who have you been spending time with that acts like that? Teach and Charmz....ditto on what you said...lol!

Hossy, lack of sex drive??!!!?? Mine has gotten stronger over the years and better. I know what I want and am not too afraid to ask now. Lack of flexibility? I can still stand on my head and do back bends. Red, I hear ya g/f...Don't want them THAT young! HA

Hossy, my hormonal change has been the best thing that ever happened to me and the men who are lucky enough to hook up with me. I am less inhibited and must more adventuresome. I, like Sunset don't fit into your mold and so I can only assume that I intimidate the men in my age group. On the other hand, if you read the profiles of men in our age group they want to cuddle on the couch or walk in the woods. WTH happened to everything else you can do in the woods and I am no couch potato. You want to cuddle with me, you gotta catch me first and it will be worth your while. Sorry, I am not taking it anymore. So tonight when you guys are all cuddle nice and safe on your couch with your remotes, let me tell you where I will be. I'll be at the Lugnuts game and then on to Rum Runner a piano bar. Ok, if it's raining, I might be here because I am still recovering from the lack of sleep at the rodeo.

Hoss, I am not disagreeing with you...but don't generalize...not all mature women think or act that way...or are dealing with those things. Many women I know and have talked to have more energy, less fatigue, more sexual drive, more adventuresome spirits than ever before. Yes, I think some women..."feel" their age. So do some men....it is a matter of getting to know someone well...communication. But there are many of us out here...full of life, energy, excitement and adventure...we don't look,act or feel our ages. Nice reply Hossy...thanks!

As in the old saying, its not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog. So too with "mature" women, some of whom have given up the fight to keep a high level of energy and a positive outlook on life. A fit, mature woman, with few ailments,(or manages to keep those ailments to herself) is much better than a younger inexperienced woman. A mature woman or a man who does not require a cocoon in which to live (its too hot out, I only ride when its between 60-70 degrees, I cant eat this and I cant eat that, I cant handle loud music, or I'm too tired or I'm too old etc) is not fun to do things with. Its important that they're comfortable in their own skin and are positive individuals glad to be alive. This applies to all age groups, but is especially challenging these days for women in their late 50's and early sixties, struggling with hormonal challenges, depression, poor sleep habits, loss of flexibility, loss of self-esteem and reduced sex-drive etc. Beyond the allure of the makeup and dress, its whether you can still keep up with men 10 years younger. Its worth it to try, because the benefits are usually better health and much better sleep and a better chance of getting rid of middle age spread!

Ah Glideman....thank you for having the courage to respond...and some great insights too. Loved the story about the centagenarian. But...baggage and cynicism happens on both sides too...seems a lot of men get very cyncial and weary of relationships. Thanks for responding.

So does that mean we are to smart, too intelligent, and too witty for them to keep up with? This is open to men of all ages, if it takes a youngster to understand us, then sorry about your luck old guys. Not trying to rile anyone, but trying to figure out why 300 men can look and not even attempt to get to know us. Ok, now I'm sounding desperate and that couldn't be further from the truth. Guess I'll go dry some tents for next week's travels.
