RE: Plenty of Fish New Policy: No More Dating Younger Women
Several years ago, POF was my go-to for easy bangs. Lately, the quality of women seems to have taken a dive. The last couple of times I tried messaging the few decent girls that I could find in my target demographic, I got 'nothin.

Maybe my profile was stale and too many chicks had seen it already, maybe it shows on your profile how long you've been a member (I've never looked or noticed) and the length of time I've been on there is killing my game.

No matter, my online game now consists of SA and CL.

POF could disappear tomorrow and I wouldn't notice.

He's signing his death warrant. POF will go down the tubes as the attractive guys looking for hookups leave, so will the women who want to bang them.

RE: Plenty of Fish New Policy: No More Dating Younger Women
My guess is that this is just a response to a lot of complaints from women across the board. Both from young women who don't want messages from guys way older than them and from 40 year old women who get no messages. Few young women will list in their profile that want to date guys 10+ years older(not in America anyway), and guys ignore this and message them anyway, and then they get sick of it alongside the tons of lame, beta and crude emails. And I guarantee you 99% of these older guys ain't George Clooneys. More like the type of fat, balding dudes you see walking around Soi Cowboy in Bangkok. Like Westerncancer mentioned above, this was most likely a business move more than some personal crusade. Just like with nightclubs, you lose the women, you lose the guys. They have to keep the women happy or be out of business. Just the way it is. Whatever. Go hang out on a college campus and day game if you wanna get at them.

Yup. This is what female privilege looks like: men are prevented from even communicating with younger women, and why?

To protect girls POF accounts from getting too many messages.

Meanwhile 80% of the guys on there get virtually no messages, but the site ain't about to help them out.

What's utterly idiotic is the fact that the site *already* allows you to prevent people from messaging you outside your specified age bracket. Let me say it again - girls on POF can already set an age limit of 14 years plus their age to email them if they want to.

Implicitly "Markus" is admitting that most girls are either too stupid to use the site's customized options or that even girls open to seeing older dudes should be prevented from doing so, despite everyone being of legal adult age.

The pressure might also be from the older women who aren't getting enough attention. That's what I've always thought was the reason for the shaming of older men going after younger women - jealousy of sexual attention.

What ever his reason is, I know it is not for the sake of the player community.

This isn't a problem he can expect to fix though. Chasing off the older men on the site won't get these women more attention, it'll get them even less. I can see him addressing the complaints of the younger women that are getting unwanted attention from older men, or getting rude/perverted messages in general. But trying to address complaints from women that aren't getting enough messages is ridiculous. If motherfuckers don't want you, motherfuckers don't want you.

perhaps he's just responding to market demand?

This kinda goes against what some literature out there says about younger women preferring older men Sad

Just starting to wonder how many of you older guys out there find it easier to pick up lizards at bars than online??

I'm in my 50's and women especially in their early 20s do not generally prefer men over 45. The standards are so strict when people say "older" they mean 5-8 years and think it's "a lot."

My very good-looking, 30 YO and tall guitarist just got blown out by an 18-year old who told him he was too old.

A lot of the time I've become sort of invisible to them. It's pretty obvious and objective. It might be way different if I was famous and 6'3". I'm 5'9". Things are a lot better once they're 30 as they start to panic about spinsterhood.

My skin is pretty good so if I dye my hair carefully I could pass for about 40. But if I let the grey grow out, there is a real obvious negative difference in the number of 20-somethings that check me out.

For most, they are pampered and want life to be sort of a continuous spontaneous party. YoungTallCool is the acronym I use to describe the kind of guy who fits their fantasy.

The real victims are the gay dudes. They used to just be able to post a pic of a busty 20 year old looking for a blow job instructor and be sure of receiving cock shots from desperate/gullible guys across the age spectrum.

While it may stop 50 year olds from messaging 18 year olds, at the end of the day, he is doing those guys a favour. The chance of getting a positive response in such a scenario is pretty much zero, he just saving the 50 yer old hours of unnecessary frustration. There are better ways for guys that age to meet women 20+ years younger.

If you are 35 and want to message 18 year olds just drop your age by a few years. If you are over 30 and putting in your real age on pof, you are doing yourself a disservice, if you are looking to hook up with 18-19 year olds.

Women who are obsessed with only looks and height won't get to fish in such a wide pond anymore. It'll be like the old, pre-cougar days when the implicit peer-pressure was there to force them to date Beta provider types closer to their own age instead of pretty boys of any age.

I'll say it again, beta-provider WORKS!!

It plays right into what is drilled into females heads since age 10.

You demonstrate your financial and career stability to chicks while sprinkling in family like "my mom and dad been together 30 years" or make references to your married siblings and chicks like that stuff.

Who says that you have to actually "provide" for them. Just make them "think" they have a "provider" until they drop those panties...then just pump and dump.

All you need to do is -------> Have financial and career stability

That is less work than trying to bench press 500 pounds OR trying to display every muscle on your body OR trying to cover every single fashion point OR trying to figure how to get girls off of cell phones, yadda, yadda.

Not saying one should not visit the gym or lift or not have some type of fashion but with financial and career stability, you do not need to be super-peak at the rest.

Use beta-provider to your advantage.

Still a shame, that a guy in his mid or upper 30's+ cannot get some 18 year old tail on the POF site.

RE: Plenty of Fish New Policy: No More Dating Younger Women
I agree with Urban nerd. About 3-4 weeks ago I changed around my profile a bit, dropping my age 3 or 4 years, increasing my income way above what I make, and included a few comments like, "I know how to make a woman happy," something ambivalent that it could either be from my wallet or my enormous penis. Probably getting between double and triple response rate from under 25.

I have dates tuesday through saturday this week, and I am supposed to have a 3 some with (2) 19 year olds over the weekend. It's never been like this for me before.

Additionally, yeah what he is doing is gay, but it's his website, he can do whatever the fuck he wants. It's clearly a bad business move, kind of like new coke. Let's see if it lasts.

Its probably somewhat location dependent as well but where I am from I am literally batting 0/50 in messaging 18/19 year olds. Im 29 years old (listed my honest age) and am muscular etc.

I meet these bitches in the real world and they are instantly stroking their hair when they talk to me, fiddling with their bra straps. Online dating is a huge joke, I just get pissed off and quit whenever I go back to it.

This news doesn't affect me but seeing some beta bitch talk about how you shouldn't be messaging someone over the 14 year old age gap is still infuriating. I hope a new POF comes out and crushes this putz.

Because in the real world, they are not seeing the number 29 being flashed in front of them reminding them that it's socially unacceptable. When they meet me you, they imagine you to be what ever age they think is acceptable in their head.

I'm about to turn 37. While 20-something girls are hardly out of reach for me, I'm under no illusion that this is a situation that will continue forever. Women have till mid 35 at the latest to lock a guy down. Men can play the game a bit longer but I don't think it's going to go much past 40 for most of us unless we have some kind of fame, ostentatious wealth or move to Cambodia.

Ideally, I'd like to lock down a girl in the 27-30 year range by the time I'm 40. Hopefully a feminine, non-American girl that is aging well and fit and can look good still at 40. Maybe have a couple kids and just ride it out. By then I'll be 50+ and I think I'd be doing fine in such a scenario. Early this year a friend of mine had a get together and there was this woman of Spaniard descent who was around 45. She looked about 35 tops. Maybe a little less. Her skin was great, no major wrinkles, nice olive complexion and long flowing dark hair. Her body was still pretty descent, she passed my boner test with flying colors and I normally don't look at cougars. I thought she was seriously beautiful. And I don't mean beautiful for a 45 year old, she was just beautiful period. I started trying to rap to her till my friend whispered to me that she's married. That's the kind of woman you wife up at 30 and you'll be set.

RE: Plenty of Fish New Policy: No More Dating Younger Women
You know, i have never used plenty of fish, but i am just tempted to make an old man account every once in a while that is 50 who will send sex messages to women in their 20s and 30s just to fuck up their community. I will use hotspot shield as a proxy so they cannot ban my IP address.

There are many women out there that have daddy issues and actively seek older men. For that matter, plenty of guys with mommy issues that want older women. So long as everyone is over 18 and consenting adults, they can look after themselves.(block/delete someone if they are bothering you)
