Not nonPlus Mike's breakfast for 45 plus - Rosebery

This is a first - a trial of something different, a breakfast just for those 45 years old or over, for those interested more in meeting people of a similar age.

I have read a lot about this place, so am curious to see for myself how it is.  Certainly looks very Melbournian.

See you there!

    I am terrible at judging people's chronological age: I always default to their emotional age, which is where the real compatibility is based. My recent "dating" has paired me with two great women: 20 years apart in their age differences. Some people are "old" at 30 and some are youthful at 70. If the singular focus of prognosis of success is "age" it is probably doomed. Nor does sexual compatibility correlate with age, in case that issue was on the cards .... ;-)

    I agree, age is just a birth certificate

    WOW what an interesting thread of comments!! Unfortunately i cannot be there this saturday but it sounds like it is going to be fun.
    I dont care about age,it is how the person is that matters...........:)

    Ian this is a really good idea as there is so little aimed at the "50" age group as far as meeting other singles. Don't give up even if this Saturday doesn't go according to plan. Maybe making it 45-55 would cover it?
    Is it possible to book a table, I might get hungry standing in line too long :)

      God, you still hate me ... Wait! I have a court judgement that says I was born in 1940!!! I'm in!

      Ian, can I suggest that you just say 45 plus, I am over 55, look much younger, fit in better with younger people and I would hate to be too 'old' to attend, no real need to put a cap on the age

    I'm not impressed but not suprised. My experience with speed dating is that there is never enough interest from men over 50, unless the women are ten years younger.

      Shame I won't be there to hear the results of "hundreds of interviews". Wonder if there would be any bias or stereotyping ?

    Yes Mez well said, sadly some older men think they can recapture this misspent youth by targeting twenty something it's really funny to watch them make fools of themselves ...

      I usually pass for 29-34 .... Men 45+ are always hitting on me. My scrolling badge with my phone number on it has proven to be an unexpected experiment bonus! I'll tell you about Saturday night and the text messages :)

    Such a shame it has turned out this way, not much happening for the over 50s, certainly hope you will do it again.

      It's just evolution - I let things sort themselves out, including how people choose to behave, come or go - so long as nothing falls into the harassment category.

    With less than a week to go, and really only one guy, I'll let the women comment and see if you still want to go ahead with "girls morning out"... I am *not* impressed by the NSB 50+ men.

      No intention to cancel - I just don't do that :D

      Only if everyone disappears and me as host left, then of course no point.

    Why is this turning into a "sledge" the guy-fest ?
    Just because we have all had less than ideal experiences, do we then find it acceptable to be so negative. For the record ladies, I have had the same scenario of "older" women preferring younger guys, yet I don't label all women the same. No wonder we guys are reluctant !!!

      Ella, the same ridiculous statistics can be applied to women !!

      We can just be people - generalisations always rile people up. There could be better balance now if more males join. I will be there regardless.

      July 22, 2013

  • Lauris H.

    Mike, sortry I have a bad back and cannot stane in line for a period of time, also lack of guys???
    Would love to go to another over 50s

    If not more men show, I would still like to be there and exchange views about 50+ dating, and men "making fools of themselves", if you so wish. To balance that point, I would also like to discuss how women behave. Men are from Mars and all that :D

    I would also understand if anyone un-RSVPs between now and Saturday.
