I must look like a Jezebel whore

  Judging by the messages that I get on the dating website, I've come to the conclusion that I must look like a Jezebel, whoring hizwhore. I just got a message yesterday from a guy telling me he just got out of a relationship and wants to try some "no strings attached" sex. He wants someone who has been with more than one person. What? So, I don't know if it's my age or how I look or what. Regardless, I seem to be the go-to girl for sex? You can state on your profile what you're looking for- long term relationship, short term, casual sex, penpals, etc. Mind you, mine does NOT say casual sex. I just have dating listed. Dear God, why am I suddenly everyone's Mrs. Robinson? Has to be my age. Admittedly, I'm not the most chaste lady, but I'm not here to educate or experiment. I'm probably the one person out there looking for true love (which I'm sure is dead).
  I do sometimes get very sweet messages. I had one the other day that said "You look like you just walked out of my dreams. In all honesty if I could build the perfect woman, I'd simply nod in your direction". I admit, I was quite charmed by that. He, however, was not someone I'd be interested in. Figures. On a daily basis, guys in their early twenties message me with salacious requests or offers to "show me a good time". I just want a nice date. Is that too much to ask? I'm guessing that it's a young guy's fantasy to be with someone older. Do other women my age get these same messages? I feel like starting a support group. Granted, I date younger guys. Only because the guys my age look like either Louis C.K. or Larry The Cable Guy. One tends to gravitate to the attractive, younger gentlemen in that case. Also, I've discovered that even guys in their 30's and 40's are only looking for sex, too. Why not at least date the more attractive age group? It's pretty much a lost cause. Patrick was a fluke. I fell in love and dated and was blissfully happy for a year. Fluke, unicorn, will never happen again.
