    What If I'm a Plain Jane?

    Hi. I’m new here and have been looking in vain for an answer. There are tons of links about how to handle being a beautiful female or how to pursue a beautiful female. I’m 69 years old and am no beauty. I was married for 33 years and my husband loved me for who I am. I never wore makeup or had long flowing hair and he was fine with that. Since he passed away in 2011, I have been doing the “free” thing with a few dating sites and 90 percent of the men want a “a beautiful woman who is comfortable in jeans or an evening gown.” I have a difficult time believing that all of them came from previous relationships with beautiful women. I read an article in the Huffington Post by Judy Katz about moving on after losing the love of your life. She said “I would like to think that more of us can “pair up” if we are more realistic about who we are and who is out there for us at this stage our lives.” How can I be true to who I am, without being something I’m not, and attract a decent man?

    All you can do it stay true to who you are, and eventually someone who appreciates you for you will come along. You don’t have to change you.
