Maybe visit your local gun store. Lots of guys hanging out there who share your interests. You might find a sugar daddy!

Hahaha.......I don't want a 'sugar daddy'. I want someone I can have fun with. Many of the guys I've seen in the gun shop are there with their wives. I like to see that, too.

My self I could care less who and what marry or date if it is what they want, as long as they are legal. I am no one to deside what is right or wrong with anyone's relationship.

As do I. You have to repect a man who will take the time to involve his wife in the shooting sports. My wife and I started as friends Winds. Neither one of us was looking, it just happened. Don't give up, have faith and it will happen.

I'm in about the same boat as you. Been disabled for 6 years, with my wife for 10, and married for 5. I think she and the kid are only sticking around for the guns and the dogs.

i have been in both directions, both my ex-wives were a couple of years older than me, the first one lasted 2 years, the second one lasted 13 years. i am on my third wife and she is 2 years younger than me. when i was much younger, just out of high school i dated women who were just getting out of college or there abouts. but i think that some like the older man, because he seems more stable and less likely to want to party.

my current wife, does enjoy shooting and firearms, just not as much as i do, but she has no desire to go into a gun store at all. when i try and get her to go with me to look at a gun i have in mind for her, i might as well say, lets go look at a new car. she'd rather go to an all night dentist. she hates it. in almost 8 years of marriage, she has gone with me to either a gun show, the LGS or Gander Mountain maybe 4-5 times. well at least she does like shooting and guns, so it does make it easier to buy a new one from time to time. and she does like to talk about guns with me too. i can show her a new one or tell her about a project, without that look some wives get!

Had an old friend, Navy Chief- when his wife turned 40, he jokingly told her he was going to trade her in for 2 20's.

He said she smiled sweetly, patted his cheek, and said "Honey, you're not wired for 220."

To her that would be older, but the same 21 year old girl probably wouldn't be attracted to a 60 or 70 year old man. In fact, she probably would be repulsed by the thought of being with a man that old, though may force herself if there's enough money and/or alcohol involved. I guess what i'm asking is, at what point does "older" become a negative? Appreciate to hear from any female forum members.
The old school way of thinking was along these lines: The more money he has, the older and uglier he can be, and still be a catch.

IMO, most (but not all) women have evolved beyond that way of thinking. But, I still hear of women casting bait into bars and wondering why they find drunks.

The linkups I've observed over many years cover a wide range of ages and demographics. In general, if the ages differ by more than 10 years, the linkups are short term.
