When I think about what my man does to me itjo it really puts a smile on my face I dont think I’ll settle for anything less.I am in my mid-forties and I have been online dating off and on for about 2½ years and dating in general for 4 years.Recently, however, I was contacted by a guy in his mid-twenties and I was impressed by his profile…he’s mature, intelligent, articulate and attractive. And for every Demi and Ashton (Celebrities, They’re Just Like Us! ”, I’d say, “Why would you date a younger woman when you can date an older woman? Now, there is a flaw in this system – the biological clock – which is much worse at 38 than at 23. Hey, if you still have the juice to hang with kids, go crazy. Put another way, there’s a very good reason that you don’t see many 25 year old men with 45 year old women.
Some of us limit our potential partners to a very specific age range because that’s what we think we’ll be attracted to.
This kind of culling is even easier now that dating sites let us whittle our options down to the year.
I am a year and a half out of a relationship and in that time, I have found only one guy I was interested in but he did the vanishing act.
I have probably more dates than the average woman and I just can’t seem to find a guy I want to date.
Because he’s been in the workforce for oh, about four years. But still, I’m a big proponent of life experience and wisdom. So even if this young man’s interest in you is completely pure, even if he wants to have a real relationship with you, you guys are most likely doomed. But presuming he does, if I were you, Carla, I’d probably have some fun. Maybe not all of them, and maybe not this particular guy, but most guys in their 20s think an older woman is easier and hornier than women their own age.
Because he may be a great communicator, mature for his age, and relationship minded, but he’s also, y’know, a BABY. Go in with your eyes open and appreciate the experience for what it is – a dalliance with the youthful exuberance of your past. “What do guys in their twenties really expect and/or want when contacting an older woman? That’s what I thought when I was a schmucky 20 something, and so did my friends.I know many brilliant, mature people who aren’t old enough to rent a car.From a sexual attraction standpoint, I challenge you to stand me shirtless next to Sophia Loren in Look, Steely Dan probably couldn’t talk at all to "Hey Nineteen" because they admittedly had "nothing in common." Not because she was too young to name an Aretha Franklin song (which, like, come ON, Steely Dan); the idea that people are what pop culture references they know reduces falling in love to trading trivia. A lot of women have told me they won’t date younger men because of maturity issues, and that’s probably where the idea of a prohibitive "age gap" comes into play for a lot of people.Time creates wisdom – but it also creates responsibilities and complications – mortgage, kids, career, etc.All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older. Still, most of them fail miserably, for the exact same reasons that I think Penelope is suggesting.But I do know women, and lots of women in their 20’s. A few women may bridge this gap for lust or money or dimestore psychological reasons, but most of the 28-year-old women I know would prefer to date a great, stable 30-40 year-old – who also knows what Snapchat is. But don’t forget, you and your younger girlfriends are the EXCEPTION. Well older man usually don’t have sex they spend quality time with their loved ones and they make love.
