2. Men and women are not interested in sex after 50. Ok menopause or impotence can make sex more difficult but the reality is that most people , regardless of age, still want and enjoy sex. In a survey sponsored by the North American Menopause Society, 51% of postmenopausal women reporthed being happiest andmost fulfilled between the ages of 50 and 65.

3. The idea that men still love the chase. Ok that may have been the case in his 20's but now the woman-to-man ration is now in their favour  and so need to compete  at the same level.In any event men over 50 have more responsibilities and don't have the time /energy  for the chase.

5. As men and women get older , they become less selective. The reality is that they are just as picky as when they were younger.

6. Men in midlife want younger women putting women at a disadvantage. Actually there are plenty of men who want to date someone their own age or even older. The reality is that compatibility is based on feeling really good when your'e with that person.

7.The over 50's are more mature and are therefore more respectful to their dates. The reality is that it doesn't matter what someone's age is , some people just do not want relationships and are only interested in hookups. 

8. Men do not desire women over 50.  Actually men care a lot less about your appearance than they do about your enthusiasm, your interests, and your capacity for enjoyment.
