What I keep seeing in men's profiles: 43/M seeking F 20-34. (self.OkCupid)

Flat out, I'm a serial monogamist, 37/F, and long-time online dating app user. I've used Match, pof, OKC and even CL, and I feel like this needs to be pointed out: when the sites ask for an age range of women you'd be interested in, they mean reasonable age range...not your ideal. While I have no doubt that your 48 year old ass wouldn't kick a 19 year old out of bed, that isn't the point of these sites.
I used to use the age range as an exclusion criterion when I was in my early 20's, but I don't have that luxury anymore. Nearly 100% of the men my age are posting that they want girls young enough to be their daughters. We all get that this could be a fantasy, but this just serves to alienate the small portion of the population that would actually be interested in you.
Just my two cents on that.
And on a related note, I've apparently achieved "cougar" status now, or something, as about half the guys that message me are in their mid-20's. Curious. :/
