She won't play mind games with her younger man by not answering her phone.She will approach a man in a bar and not wait for him to make the first move.I was delighted to learn that they didn't equate being a sexagenarian -- which scared the s*** out of me, I can tell you -- with having one foot in the grave. The users' flightiness is still there, but no longer is it a dedicated forum for randy young guys and lovelorn girls.It has evolved into a proper microcosm of our society, and the over-50s -- so many of whom are footloose and fancy-free after relationship break-ups -- have taken to it with a vengeance.The fact that I had turned 61 two weeks earlier didn't bother me. I knew this Tinder business was a young person's game. The fact is, young men always have and always will fantasize about older women. The Arrogance Of Youth The thing about young men, especially in today's digital world, where all arrangements are subject to change and attention spans are minuscule, is that they are infuriatingly unreliable.Most striking is the large number of men in their mid-to-late 30s who have not yet settled into long-term relationships. So, call me old-fashioned, but in the end I simply got fed up with their flighty behavior. I have just been having another little spell on Tinder, and what a transformation since those early days!would have you believe, is evolving into an elaborate charade of deception: Everybody is petrified of giving someone the “wrong idea.” Men are impolite to the point of viciousness to ensure that the women they just hooked up with understand they don’t want a relationship.Women “self-objectify” in profile pictures to get men interested, renouncing the “wrong idea” that they might want something more than a one-night stand.

She travels alone – not to see the sights or experience new cultures, but for the freedom to have sex.
When High50's Monica Porter tried Tinder for the first time she was irritated by unreliable young men, but on using the dating app again this year she found guys in their 30s 'like teenagers after some fun' I first downloaded Tinder on to my smartphone in the summer of 2013, soon after the innovative new dating app was launched in the UK.
That was the year of my great Internet dating adventure and it seemed an intriguing experiment to try. When I discovered that Tinder automatically takes some basic details from your Facebook profile, including your correct age, I cringed with embarrassment. Far from putting off the legions of 20-something men looking for 'action', my age was virtually an aphrodisiac for many of them.
