There is a 35-36 year old 9 who is showing me lots of interest and stacks up in many other ways (no kids, traditional upbringing/values, healthy life, slim figure, pleasant, etc etc) but I was on the fence about the age. Seems like my instinct was correct. I just kept thinking we'd need to fast track our courting and get straight too it - it really would add a lot of pressure to the relationship.
Yes, trust your instinct on this one. Almost 3 years ago, i was in the same boat you were and instead of trusting my instinct and red pill advice of not dating older women that I had read for years, I decided to make this older gal my GF. As I've said before, she was the most amazing women i've met, even to this day and coincidentally, she helped along my journey to find God again. Sadly, she could not conceive after over 2 1/2 years of us fornicating, which is when I cut things off.
OK... update... she just turned 33.
Still a no go? Also, in hindsight, I'll give her a 9.5. She would have been a 10 all throughout her 20's. Lovely woman, just was/is too career focused.
It's sad how each year around this time and really make a big difference...
Even best case would need to be quick courting period, test for red flags/compatibility within 6 months, then fertility tests ASAP, and be prepared break up based on those results or to accept 2 kids max (with 3 would be a blessing).
I suppose I'm really trying to find where this cut off line is.
