In other words, knowingly sends me matches that are probably not realistic for me to pursue.When I have emailed some of those guys, I never hear back.I have found that more and more men and women are focused on and building their careers and businesses through their 40s and even 50s.
I’ve noticed after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to almost nothing.
It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.
Things still aren’t perfect but the ranges seem more reasonable.
The new equation (created using excel) is: Lower Limit =IF(YOUR_AGE – SUM((YOUR_AGE/2) 7) 20, YOUR_AGE 20, (YOUR_AGE-7)*2) For the lower limit, I’m checking if the lower range is more than 20 years younger than YOUR_AGE and if it is I’m capping it at 20 years younger. Here’s what my initial results look like: This is just one section of the entire results and you can download the entire excel sheet here.
I really thought it worked well at the lower age ranges but in the 40s things started to get a little excessive first for the upper limit and then later for the lower limit as well. The equation given would suggest that his optimal dating range would be between 36.5 and 100.

Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.

Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.
After meeting many men online who have lowered their age by 10 to 12 years, I had to learn what this was about (other than deception).
