One third of older women date younger menPage 3 of 17    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)

Statistics show that Older men date/marry younger women to feel Young themselves

I can only speak for myself but I find myself getting along well women who are several years younger than me.

But it’s not to make me "feel young", because I already feel young, but because so many people seem to me to be living "older" than their years.

I still feel inspired and energetic; I still like to discover and explore; I'm still excited about my career and the world around me; I'm not ready to rot on my couch in front of a 52-inch Hi-Def screen.

I don't care so much about what your age number. I'm more interested in the age of your spirit.

At my age that doesn't leave much of a dating pool out there. I don't consider a few years older as older tho. After getting so old, realitively speaking, a few years is the same age!

A third??? Amazing! I can't possibly understand why a younger guy would be interested in an older woman unless he's looking for another mother

So that's why I get all these emails from older women Much older women! The only way I would go out with an older woman is because she would look 15 years younger than her age Hell...even then I wouldn't!

Any of the younger men who asked me out expecting "another mother" must have been deeply disappointed.


Seriously, I can't see why any woman, young or old, would be interested in a man with such a limited mindset that he can't acknowledge that there are other points of view besides his own. It is one thing to say you wouldn't choose to date an older woman, and quite another to assume that no one else would.

Awww...a frustrated older woman

First of all, What I wrote is based on how what I think. It's a personal choice! I never mentioned that there are no other points of view beside my own nor would I ever say such a thing. I can't understand it as I NEVER WOULD...I as in one person...as in me!

If younger guys prefers older women then let them go for it! Where I do have a problem though is with the 1/3 of them that would. I seriously doubt that it's even close to reality. In fact, please provide me with facts as I just don’t believe it.

As far as women being interested in me goes? Let me put it this way...I dont need this website to find a date. I use it for the forums more than anything else.

When one says, "I can't possibly understand ... [fill in the blank]" it says to me that s/he lacks the imagination to put him/herself in someone else's shoes.

As to being a frustrated older woman, I am indeed an older woman, but why would you assume I am frustrated? ...except occasionally by the level of the forum contributors.

Well I am 65 and there aren't many older men that meet my fancy I had a guy who was 62 saying he liked older women so I looked around and asked him if he would like me to help find one for him LOL

I don't discount younger men, but would rather date someone close to my age.

That's exactly it! And I don't want that imagination...is that a crime? But there's a far cry of differences between a personal choice and that there are no other points of view beside my own don't you think?

You are right. I apologize.

By the way, I just love Washington State.

Well, there is nothing wrong with dating younger men, however if there is
too much of an age difference, then that can pose problems. Like maybe he
only wants sex.

Sure I date younger professional men. They are active, fun, contented, and have something worthwhile to say. Yet, so do many of the older men; problem there is, older for me usually means having to do my search either in the hospitals or the cemetaries.




Just funnin' here. Don't you guys take me too seriously.

I might not like the idea of comparing "my skin" to "the skin" of much younger person

'ousu' - as much as I like a man in shorts & T-shirt (age irrelevant) , honestly, while conversing with this 'frisky pace guy' the thought of whose skin might be more wrinklier would not slightly enter my mind. Actually s k i n (colour, hairy , smoothness ... ) never ever entered my mind. Eye lock is the LOCK and if anything would eventually cross my mind it would be noticing his perspiration and in such a case the idea of a drink might enter my mind

'arri' on the other hand with his - OIL OF A LAY - idea ... wow(!) ... that's a man 'on hands' experience!
Any workshop in near future to sample this man's taste for oil, quality of aroma, effect and apres-effect?

WOW...johnkarnes...I don't even know how to reply to that...for once I'm without words, now back on topic....

This whole age thing goes back to whatever you are comfortable with...age shouldn't make a damn bit of difference...you take love where you can find it. If you don'y have any issues with dating someone older/younger... go for it. As for myself.... I am more comfortable with someone in my age group, 5-6 years difference either way.

I for one have no desire for younger men. I prefer the experience of an older man, they tend to know what romance really means, sad to say even that is getting harder to find in a man. Older men treat me better and I like the feeling of being put on a pedistal from time to time. And they get equal attention from me as well and are far more appreciative.

One would think that, given statistics that most US women live longer than men, that it would make sense for women to seek younger men, so their liklihood of being a widow for a long time would be less.

But even if you're not looking for marriage or a long term relationship, younger men make more sense for older women.

I have had a few chances for dating a younger man, but I think 18 years is a bit much and when he said he wanted a lot of sex without even talking to me on the phone, well that was too much!

There are some really good pros and cons here. I think I will lower my age search and see what happens. I do believe that it is maturity rather than a number I am looking for. I worry that men looking for older woman have playing on their mind. I guess I need to come out of my box and give it a try. I just don't want to be mistaken for Grandma!:

^^^ at your age, I believe you should lower the age. I don't mind anyone 55 contacting me, but one a few years older than my son makes me shiver, lol

So many advantages of older women. The main main reason. They are far more considerate than younger women. Generally speaking younger women are use to being inconsiderate because of supply and demand. Of course a man must reciprocate this consideration and not be a****
