They all seem to want one thing right out of the gate. I have trust issues.
A few have tried to own me. My husband knew better than that. My standards are this: Get to know me before you grope.
I am not a Barbie doll. But if the right person took the time to get to know me, they might be surprised.
But even the guys who look like Homer Simpson or worse seem to want someone without baggage, without a lifetime of experiences. You want validation for believing that all men are jerks? I get it.
Your experiences, though limited, have been pretty similar — men groping, wanting sex right away. The good news is that you were married to a man who respected and loved you, all of you — life experiences, baggage and the few extra pounds you mentioned. You were lucky to have had Proressional great marriage.
It must be difficult to date after being widowed. All men are not jerks.
Best of luck to you as you embark on this journey of dating in midlife. Keep me posted!
