“I find it comforting to know that her life goes on when I’m not around,” he said. Plus, I’m talking about outside of the bedroom as well. etc.) But many are not.** She’s choosier, and, unlike the 26-year-olds who think they’ll drop dead if they’re not engaged by 27, married at 28, and prego before 30, she’s looking at life a little differently now.(This is code for, “I dread clingy girls who abandon their own ships the moment we have sex, and set up camp on my shore.”) Also, the fact that an older woman has her own money means she likely worked hard to get it. You may buy into the idea that all older women are “desperate.” Granted, some are. This doesn’t mean she doesn’t want marriage/kids, because she might—but if so, she’ll be pretty clear about it up front.), there are thousands of other instances of cross-generational relationships that die a quick, painless death. Because he was born in the 80’s, right about the time that you were losing your virginity in college. This is a valid concern to men looking to have families, so let’s not overlook it. It just seems far more likely that a) he’s bragging to his friends that he might get to sleep with a woman 20 years older than himself, or b) you guys really might be compatible if only he were significantly older or you were significantly younger. A caveat which I must acknowledge: if neither of you desires children, then you have a far better chance.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.
Instead of the female curve, which suggests that 34-year-old women like 34-year-old men, men find 20 year-old women most physically appealing, no matter how old they were. This doesn’t mean that 40 year old men want to MARRY that 20 year old woman, only that they find her the most physically appealing.
I get contacted by a fair number of guys in their 20’s and most I don’t respond to because I just feel it won’t go anywhere. But I still feel that maybe it’s a mistake…what do I really have in common with this guy? However, if you’re looking for good, clean (and not-so-clean) fun with a young stallion, you can have an amazing time. However, if you’re looking for good, clean (and not-so-clean) fun with a young stallion, you can have an amazing time. I’m here to observe society and report back to you how things USUALLY work out. And when all my friends would make fun of me and say, “Why would you date an older woman when you could date a younger woman? As far as I’m concerned, every woman is better at 28 than at 23, better at 33 than at 28, and so on. You’re at the home buying, 401K saving, family planning phase of life – for MOST 46-year-olds.
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.
Okay, Evan, I agree mostly with your opinion on younger men/older women. I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman – physically that is, but why would a 28-year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? I can totally understand why older men go for younger women.
There’s no denying that they’re, for the most part, in better shape, with better skin, and less baggage from broken relationships.
