Midlife Dating: The Signs of Being Unwanted

I was opening my e-mail. There it was, three more gentlemen that I should check out. I have debated dumping my account. Most of the guys are fine, normal people. Very active. Never knew so many over-40 men like to run marathons and walk on the beach.
I don't marathon. I have no beach to walk on. Anyway, I go check out the fellas who were sent to me as eligible candidates. I see this at the bottom of one of the potential matches:
I can't be older than 45 years old?
Yes, I can.
Yes, I am. The killer that caused me to laugh is that there was an ad for a mature dating service. It featured way-younger-than-I-am women who would be willing to date guys over 40.
Cleavage apparently is an important qualification.
You have to laugh or you will go stark raving bonkers.
