Most men prefer younger girls. But in the civilized

When my friend was visiting from Iran, I suggested
putting up her
profile on an Iranian matchmaking site. Now I deeply regret
I should have known better.
My friend, who will remain anonymous,
is a very attractive looking lady
in her early 40s. More importantly, she is a warm hearted, honest,
genuine friend. She is divorced with a 13-year-old son. She sacrificed
most of her younger years living in Iran to raise her child --
to her bad marital experience here, and her family's support
Now, that her son is growing up, she realizes that
time for her to
move on with her life and find herself a partner. Of course I
of anyone in the area. But I suggested looking up personals on
Not knowing much about Internet matchmaking ordeal,
she reluctantly agreed to put her profile on the iranianpersonals.com.
happy-surprise (being that I am an Americanized, stupid, honest,
there were many men that fit her category. So I thought!
Days passed after her profile was posted, but
there were no replies. As
I recalled, there were plenty of men in their 40s and 50s,
divorced, kids, and so on. But none responded to her profile.
To test the
created another profile with similar characteristics but dazzled
it up a
bit. Again, there were no responses.
To make the story short, I finally created a phony
profile of a young
woman in her mid 20s seeking a man between 30 to 40 years of
older than 40. To my astonishment, there were ton of emails on
box from men in their 40s, even so called "early 50s". Hmm!
I wonder why
I understand most men in the world, older ones
in particular, prefer
younger girls. But in the civilized
world most men - not all - know that
won't work. So why can't Iranian men figure that
I noticed that in Iranian personals so many
Iranian men disguised their age, their past marital status, to
win the heart of twentysomething girls -- preferably virgins.
What's even funnier, is the profile of young girls
from Iran who are
seeking basically any man from abroad (preferably the US) regardless
his age or marital status. Now that by itself is another sad
So I learned my lesson of looking up Iranian personals. Maybe
I should look up the American sites. After all she's fluent
in English. So
language shouldn't be an issue. I am now very curious to
see how the
Americans will respond to her profile!?
