Age-gap: The Reality Of An Older Woman Dating A Younger Man
I must be one of those rare men because I find women in their 50s mentally stimulating therefore attractive. Once I can end my marriage I most likely will not date a woman younger than in her late 40s. Older women, for the most part, have life experience and know what they want.
Personally I’m good looking, physically fit and financially secure … and date near my age, 50s. This article, read with the comments, makes dating sound awful for everyone. Go out and have some people, if it doesn’t work out it’s ok, date some more.
And sometimes the women are worst then the men. Jumping into bed doesn’t set a good example for a wonderful monogamous relationship. I find it easy to get men’s attention on line but difficult to keep them focused on getting to know me because of the whole pandemic and other distractions of looking for the next best thing. Seems most men aren’t that interested in a one in one commitment that’s days atleast those in their 50s and 60s. Frustrating for me who prefers to be perused but I found by waiting for that they meet someone else.
There’s a good chance he’s midway in his career, and therefore at least somewhat financially stable. Even though women live longer on average than men, older-woman/younger-man couples, like older-man/younger-woman couples, must face the question of mortality. “In all probability, I’ll lose her rather than she’ll lose me,” Nussbaum says. There’s no better reason to savor the experience, he says. “We’ve had 20 glorious years of ‘This will never work,'” he says.
Don’t Make Jokes About His Age
This is coming from a divorcee that turned down alimony after a 20 year marriage. I don’t feel I was hardwired to always look for the most attractive, richest, or toughest looking men but I have a high standard when it comes to respect and kindness. And yes, it is an added bonus to find an attractive man. I wouldn’t want to be with someone who was very overweight but I have had relationships with men who didn’t have perfect bodies. Physical attributes can often be worked on and I respect a guy who is trying to better himself by being more healthy. I became attracted to men I never thought I would because I used my brain to assess their character and intentions and in the end they became attractive to me as a whole person.
Should I Hire a Dating Coach? Here’s 13 Reasons Why
I have been told multiple times by men and women that I am very easy to talk to. I counted 20 guys for every woman in my demographic. Great odds for the ladies, a sucker’s bet for the guys. Color me frustrated because finding a 50-something woman who meets all three of those criteria AND is available is akin to finding a purple unicorn. You know I guess I have a different attitude than a lot of older men.
Fourth, don’t carry the “baggage” of previous relationships into your next one. If your first husband, boyfriend, etc. cheated or lied or stole from you that does not mean that the next will. But be cautious because it also does not mean that they won’t. You can get string of heads or tails in a row . You may meet Mr. Wrong, Mr. Mostly Wrong then Mr. Really Wrong, then Mr. Kind of Right before meeting Mr. Right.
You are right Confused – he took off with a younger version just after he made it to 40 – but hey, we’re all human. Where the heck are all you good guys who are still single in the 50’s range?

To say that anyone dating someone younger is trying recapture their youth is an unfair generalization. But spending time with someone less tethered to family obligations and long-entrenched lifestyle demands can feel pretty freeing. You might be thrilled to be single and mingling in your 50s. Or maybe you’re upset to find yourself in this position.
My experience, I repeat, I’m not quoting someone else’s words. As much as I still enjoy sex at 50, for me sex is a special act, sacred even, shared between two people who really care about each other. I think it is the most precious gift you can give another person. It’s not a casual thing to me, and I couldn’t go from guy to guy MatchSeniors giving my most private self out like it’s candy. That part of me is saved for someone who truly deserves it, someone who’s shown me that they want what I do, a meaningful and exclusive relationship. The luckiest guys over 50 are those who enjoy sex with older, overweight women and have enough energy to go to gym regularly.
“I was suffering through the disability I call ‘middle life’ and needed comfort,” she wrote. “Turning 42 brought on self-criticism and disappointment that flowered like a bruise. … Why did I join up with this guy? … Maybe I wanted to be the self-centred asshole in a relationship.” Celebrity women who date younger men are empowering, but we still have a problem.

I don’t think you are asking for anything unreasonable, and I can’t understand the concept of a woman loving you but she doesn’t want to be intimate.
