Question: Why do older women want younger men?Page 8 of 17    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)
I agree, Tasha looks great!!...as does Sheila, who's height I envy...and Lainey...well, Lainey is a HOTTIE! In fact...the thing about the St. Louis area fishies is...MOST ALL THE WOMEN HERE, are more than average attraction! ;O) Great city to be a man...or a lesbian, in! LOL Toot the horn away! (I think he asked you if you would be attracted to HIM, though!?) ;)


"few pounds over weight" when in actuality......they are 20 to 100 lbs plus overweight


It's getting waaaay off topic, but the SELECTIONS here on POF are NOT accurate either. Me...I KNOW I am more than a "few pounds" over...but I am nowhere near "BBW" which is considered PLUS SIZE. I still wear Junior Sizes, a 13 to be exact. They need something in between the two selections...especially for those of us who a mere 10 pounds LOOKS like 25! LOL

I don't know that. I'm just saying those are the things the younger men have told me as to why they like older women. I've never dated an older woman....or a woman at all for that matter...;)

Thanks for the offer Chanel but my door don't swing that way. Not that there's anything wrong with swinging that way if that's your thang....

I guess I could say I'm superficial because attraction has to be there before any of those other things come into play. I know some really great guys with all the above ^^^^^ mentioned characteristics but I'm not attracted to them, therefore, they just remain friends. I'm looking for someone with all the above and attraction to boot. They could be all that and a bag of chips but if they don't have any of the things you mentioned, it's not going anywhere, as far as I'm concerned.

Really shouldn't be comparing people here on the forums especially using the names. It is all about preference and opinion. I know you flomo appreciate a woman, plain and simple for who she is. Sure there is always going to be a visible attraction to get the conversation started, but I know you are about the person when it is a one on one situation. It is never about those around you and the opinions for you flomo, it is what you see for yourself in the person.

Maybe pof should ask us to fill in the blank on body type and a few others. Some guys consider me too thin, the charts put me right on target, the body fat meter puts me right between athletic and fit. So who cares. We put what we want on our profile. That is why they have names and passwords. If you don't like what mine says get out of it. It is not for discussion on the forum. The size range for me depends on the garment. I don't have one size. It is about the cut and the desired look.

deleted delete bleep bleep blah blah blah

If a guy 10-20 years younger or older than I am asks me out and I want to know them I will go. The styles of some of the younger guys makes me think immature.

Let's go back to the more happy and positive forums. Like the party for Saturday night!

LOL Tom...I guess this is why there are oftentimes disappointments when online meets become real life meets...different perceptions of those darn drop down menus!

I agree with Sheila...they should have it write in, or just add some more choices. Datehookup.com has great choices...I choose "curvy" there. :O) I also agree with her view of, "You no likey, no lookie!"

I do disagree though. If it were more about BMI, then someone who is Olive Oyl slim...lanky, anorexic-like...lol...but with a healthy BMI, could choose "athletic?" And I do not think a Sumo wrestler could have a healthy BMI...lol...though I have seen lotsa sumo wrestler lookalikes who DO choose "average" or a "few pounds over" when you can see they are "a few pounds over" at least, in their face alone. LOL

But yes....it is their prerogative to put such!

Wow...this topic has branched out so much...interesting! I guess in a nutshell, age is just a number...and when the right person comes along, we might be more adaptable and more prone to adjust our thought processes if everything else is good. I SAY "no way" to way younger guys...and I am pretty sure I would stick to such...but then again, I also said "no way" to long haired guys...and yet one is working on reeling me in!

This is more interesting to me after having a "discussion of the ages" with my surrogate daughter, Amanda. Amanda has been known to date OLDER, simply for the maturity factor. Amanda is no airhead...not a typical 23 year old, at all. She is quite brilliant, extremely mature, stunningly gorgeous of course...lol...and she has a 5.5 year relationship experience under her belt, already. (my son) Most men are initially drawn to her for her beauty...but then they discover an absolutely amazing personality as well. She has dated a few guys in the age range that *I* would be "closer suited" to dating...and vice versa!

So it is just about the TWO PARTIES involved in such. In a nutshell, there is not one main reason WHY it happens, just as there is not one reason why some avoid it. Personal choice. Or perhaps, just what happens. 50 is the new 40, 40 is the new 30! LOL Personally, I like my 40's MUCH better than any other year as of yet...so I anticipate my 50's with zest!

My daughter is dating someone closer to my age than her age, and he has a son that is closer to her age than he is... She has always had trouble fitting in with kids her age because of her height. She also was diagnosed with ADD as a child. He is very mellow and it seems to help her to be more calm and rational than just jumping from one thing to the next. He is great with her and my grandson. He fits in very well with our family.

I think when you meet someone and you have chemistry, you don't ask age right off the bat. So many people do not look their age. Sometimes it is obvious they are out of your normal zone. When I went out with a guy that was almost 12 years younger than me, I didn't know till it was his birthday. Talk about my jaw dropping. I new he was younger than me, but I didn't give it much thought as to how much younger. That isn't what ended the relationship, it was more of not in sync with each other, turned into a friendship.

damnitttttt it Tommy.... I wish you would say you love me too.

OK.. do we need to get back on subject here? By the way what is the subject. Had it not been for the title I would have lost the subject.

Personally.... I don't want someone immature... I don't want to feel like their momma... but a few years.... ok well maybe more than a few works for me.

It is all about personal choice. No one can say a thing that will change my choice. This is a free country isn't it? Right Hippy?

thank you, thank you very much.... I took that pic of Shelia... pretty good if I should say so myself. LOL

You did an awesome job Susie.. thank you! How much do I owe you?

Maturity levels can fool you. Sometimes it is more about your values and the era you were raised. Even with my X husband, he was less than 4 years older than me, it seemed like he was much older. He had siblings much older than him. I, on the otherhand did not, so occasionally I felt left out, nothing I could put my finger on. With the guy younger than me, he was slow moving, mellow voice and talker, and basically just repeated phone conversations we decided to meet. We are just in two different places but have the same end goal in common. Makes for a great friend!

Just like you "General Mills"! We don't have to agree, but our core values and goals along with the ability of talking without judgement works like glue. Sometimes it is a 6mos to a year between conversations or going out somewhere but it is like we never missed a beat. (I haven't forgot about the band "General Mills and the Cherios")

Why not talk to you? I have no problem talking to anyone older or younger than my normal preference range. Sometimes I feel like we are wasting time, but if you are just enjoying conversation, that is never a waste.

I think there a lot of younger guys that prefer older women... I don't know if there many in the past, but it seems like I run into it a lot... "age is just a number". So I ask... where were you when Kennedy got shot... Last time I asked the answer was "who cares". For me, that is the point, someone for me would care, or should care. A couple of years ago I dated a guy that was 6 years younger than I am, he said I wasn't old enough for his preference... Talk about suprise, we remain friends and it is kind of a joke between us. I guess if both parties have to corresponding preferences... have fun!

I've dated younger women and older women. One valuable thing about dating someone close to my age is being able to relate to things that happened (songs on the radio, etc) during certain times in our lives. However, I don't feel 48. No offense, but I look at SOME of the folks on here around my age and think dayum do I look that bad lol. So I dont always look at ages. I consider the ages of their kids more.

I have noticed on alot of profiles I read of women my age that their age range is skewed towards younger men. The last one was 49 and her age range was 38-53. So she would go 11 years younger and only 4 years older than herself. I see that more and more. Is it that when a woman gets out of a long marriage which may have gone stale that they want more adventure in their lives and think a younger man can give them that?


Cuz when you're my age, most of the guys are old, fat, and boring?

Hey, a really large percentage of the guys are looking for women 20+ years younger than they are and won't even consider a woman their own age, let alone older than they are. So quitcher****in!
