In our twenty-five years together, we have never had a serious problem and we are still very happy. Not only is she beautiful, but she has a wonderful sense of humor and is very giving. The ability to talk about anything with her was refreshing and engaging. In fact, when I first met her, I didn't know I was attracted to an 'older' woman. I knew she was older than I, but I didn't realize the disparity in age until she told me which didn't happen until a couple of dates into our relationship.
Pat offered me space, devotion and herself, which I couldn't find in anyone else. I take better care of myself now. She is a best friend who reflects back to me what a good person I am, which builds my confidence and self-esteem.
I now have a better job and feel better about myself than ever before. Nigel, at 37, finds himself attracted to older women, in part for their clarity and substance and also their relaxed attitude about life:. I like the stimulation of a sharp intellect. I enjoy sitting down to dinner with someone who has a level of conversation I can appreciate and enjoy. I think younger women are sometimes too focused on starting families and that is rarely an issue with older women.
I've always had relationships with older women. They know themselves. They have so much more to offer and they are looking for different things. They are not just looking for guys who will be good fathers and providers. Older women can be more playful. They are more relaxed. It's really a personality thing for me regarding what is attractive. I enjoy a confident attitude and older women definitely have the upper hand in that area.
She knows what she wants in life and it makes being with her so much easier. I look at a lot of my friends who have girlfriends their age and younger and the problems they have strike me as ridiculous. They frequently act foolish and immature. I don't have time for that behavior—that's why I like mature women. It's like a rush.
Some young men saw themselves reflected back in an older woman and realized the woman's own specialness:. She offered me the opportunity to see another perspective on a lot of different issues. I mean, older women think differently on certain issues and they've got more experience. I grew up a lot with her.
Yeah, definitely, she helped me to grow up. She made me realize how important I could be in making someone else happy. Not that I was doing it for her, but just being with her. Fred, age 28, told us what qualities attracted him to older women: "The experiences in life that they've had make them more grounded and realistic.
When asked what a mature woman offered him that he couldn't find in a younger woman, Fred answered: "Emotional stability. Need I say more? There have been nothing but positives in my relationships with two older women. They were able to see things in me that I could not see in myself. Also, there were levels of honesty unlike anything I've experienced even with best friends.
Fred gave us a wealth of information over several interviews. Open, upbeat and extremely handsome, he revealed the enormous love and respect he shared with his former partner and now shares with his current partner. Fred's first older-woman experience occurred when he was 21 years old and Gretchen was They lived together for two years.
They are both still very close and see each other regularly. Not only did they have a tremendous friendship as the basis of their relationship, but an extraordinary sex life as well. Recently, this woman underwent major surgery and it was her ex-boyfriend Fred, not the woman's current older boyfriend, who was by her side. Gretchen, now 44, was involved with a man of 51 and he was simply too busy with work and personal commitments to be available when she really needed him.
It was Fred who visited her on a regular basis and saw to it that she had what she needed during her recuperation. After his relationship with Gretchen ended, Fred tried dating girls in their early 20s. He explained, often quite humorously, how ridiculous he felt trying to have meaningful conversation over blaring music at a dance club.
His brief experimentation with younger females only reaped endless head games, confusion and immature behavior. Resolutely, Fred abandoned the "young woman trial period. He decided this time to accept it. His next relationship was with Marla, a co-worker. They were great friends and then she began to pursue him. Why not?
She was older. Maybe it would work. But Marla's flaw seemed to be that she was only five years older — and for Fred, that still wasn't enough to produce the kind of emotional maturity and depth for which he searched. After a year or so of taking a "time-out," Fred met Lynne. She is 10 years older. Fred's respect and appreciation of older women was clear when he spoke:. It equates to stability. They've already figured out who they are. Maybe not all the time, but a lot more often than younger women.
They are all-around much more attractive to me. You know this is the kind of person who's going to tell you exactly what they want and they are more sure of themselves than the people my age or younger. Older women are much more well rounded — they know what they feel and why they feel it. It has a snowball effect all the way around.
It's adventurous for both of us, because it's a whole new exciting journey. Younger women just don't allow me to grow in the ways older women do. I considered it a hell of a jump start on life. Certainly, there are challenges for the men as well as the women in these relationships. For example, the issue of having or not having children came up repeatedly:. My second — I was 28 and she was 41 — lasted three years and we lived together for one year.
The main thing that attracted me was the overall calm of an older woman. There is a frenetic energy with a younger woman that can be very exciting and very cute, but not for my personality. Neither of my relationships was about being mothered.
Both women were professionals, very focused on their work lives and extremely confident and sure of themselves. That was very attractive to me. Ultimately, Lenny's last relationship ended when he wanted children and his partner of 43 did not. Of course, the issue of "Will I want children later on?
So at 46, you finally get to how incredible man with a beautiful, man woman -- but you have to wait 46 years to do it, according to this urban legend. When you're 50, you can date a year-old woman. How makes sense, considering the fact that an year age difference is something to which you should really be accustomed. At 60 you can date a man who is.
At 70 you can old a woman who is. Old, at 70, the year-olds are probably some of your daughter's friends from high school who grew up hanging out at your house and who have you gone through divorces. How finally, after all these years, you can actually date the kids you knew when they were kids. At 80 you can date a woman how is.
That's exactly what women are looking for at that age. They would love to hang out with an year-old guy. Here they are, still looking great, young and fantastic, you there you are with your skin sagging everywhere. Half the dating you can't even get out of bed without feeling pain, but thanks to Cialis, you're always ready to go. So how and is this rule for men? And why can't women institute this rule? Why can't they go younger? When women date younger men, they are called "cougars," and people say they are messing around with younger guys.
There is a negative connotation to a woman dating a younger man. As a man, though, you are congratulated if you are 80 years old and dating a woman date is 47 years old. Maybe you dating people who are within seven years of how age -- on either side. If you are 40 years old, try dating women who are between 33 and 47 years old.
