I am 36 and currently dating a 26 year old, but I had to mention how frigging annoying it was to attempt to online date women in their 30s. I'm not even talking camera tricks with weight, although that's always something to be mindful of, but women looking way worse in person than their pictures seems to be a huge issue once they are in their 30s. I can't count the dates where the woman just had rough skin and looked like they could pass for my mom even though they were technically younger than me. They didn't take any deliberately deceptive photos, but they were just much older when you saw them versus a current picture of them. Why is that? At one point, I briefly changed my Tinder and Bumble to say I was 25 to match with younger, but I felt too guilty about lying. But its frustrating as hell to match with someone seemingly good-looking and then be disappointed by how they truly look in person.
