So I have a very strong attraction towards older men (Ages 35+). I don't want to generalize or bash younger guys here, but so far the college guys I come across in my every day life on campus, appear to be very disrespectful, immature, careless, and all they want to do is have fun, hookup and drink/smoke weed all day. I'm looking for a long-term serious relationship with an older (not necessarily rich) man who is stable and is mentally mature. I have tried online dating for a while and it has been a failure for me. What can I do to appeal more to them and be taken seriously as a potential lifelong partner? More importantly, where can I meet older men? F. y. i. This is not a troll question. Thanks.

I'm not really able to comment now because I'm not an older man, however I could imagine if I was 35+ I wouldn't let age be a barrier if I was genuinely attracted to and had a connection with a girl who was in her early twenties for example. Although I'd hope to be tied down by then so I probably won't ever be in that position.1

I think meeting them in real life instead of online is probably your best bet. It's not that older men aren't interested in you. It's most likely that due to the age difference, they don't think you would be interested in them.
Join clubs, go out and talk to older men. Some may be married, but some might be single. It may take your initiative to have conversations with these men. They may not come up to you out of fear that they would be rejected or that you wouldn't be interested.
