Why are older women not into younger guys???Page 42 of 58    (18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58)
My b/f is 1yr younger than me (birthday's are 2days apart)
and for some reason I STILL have a little head trip about him being younger
Although I HAD to give him a chance becuz of how much we had in common.

But i'm thinking for me, it's partly my own insecurity, becuz it really shouldnt matter if two people like each other, and are willing to give it a shot.

Though everyone has the right to have their own personal preference....
For instance, I know now (after being married to a man alot older than me) , that I prefer NOT having someone that much older. I want someone close to my age that I can experience life, and grow together with........someone I can be on the same level with.

Amen, Silversky11!!

Like you, I love sex, need it and want it! But, to find the right combination (in a younger guy) who is not only in it for the sex, but can actually keep up with me as far as an intelligent conversation goes afterwards ---- ahhhh, there lies the challenge!

Depending too much on POF for your relationshiplife happiness is a major mistake. You'll find something eventually, even though it may seem like waiting for the second coming of Christ suck it up princess & in the meantime have a beer, or 2, or 3...

Well for me is life experiences that gives men my age something that makes them more interesting than the younger men. Also a common history of events that influenced our generation in several ways. Some of us also have kids around your age.. I often tell the younger men, my daughter is taken....I really don't care about money but I want a long term relationship with someone who I would love.

Some of us older women are not easy...........by now our self esteem is better than ever.

Hey junior, I think you'd do just fine out Vancouver. Look at all the cougars who hit your thread. Ladies, it is so ok to rob the craddle.

And how come none of you 'older women' aren't fixing up the Bomber. What! What a load of crap that Vancouver cougars don't do guys his age.

Bomber, you just get yourself a nice tight tee-shirt ( with the words, "I fix barbeques" on it) and tight jeans and go hang out in the supermarkets off 10th or 4th Ave in Vancouver. Yes! Do it!

You should come and work in my office. 95% women and boy do they like the younger guys.
"I will not be treated like a piece of meat" hehe

I do find myself dropping a lot of stuff just to pick it up though.

I've dated women 20 years younger and 20 years older (before you give me grief I was in my 40's before I did the 20 years younger thing - LOL). I've never been attracted to just the fact that they're older women or even the fact that they were women for that matter. I'm attracted to personalities that are similar or complimentary to my own. I think that might be your problem. Look for somebody that you have common interests with and similar life experiences. If she happens to be older, at least you'll still have items that interest both of you to talk about. And most importantly, never start the message with "Hi! I really like old women."

I'm 42 and I prefer younger men. Most men that I'm attracted to are in their 20s and 30s. I generally seem to have the same interests and lifestyle with younger men. Men in this age range are still old enough to be mature, successful, and financially stable. However I still would consider dating a man around my age or a little bit older if we were compatible with each other.


I left out a word in my previous post. I should have wrote that "Most men that I'm attracted to are in their late 20s and 30s". I don't think that I would date a 21 yr old or someone that is young enough to be son.

Nothing wrong with a mature younger man *hoping some don't think that's an oxymoron*.

They're very appreciate of what an older woman has to offer.

I once dated a younger guy about 4 years ago. He was 23 and i was 29. The age really didnt bother me as we got on really well. That was until his mom said he needed to go and find himself a young virgin lol. She had never even met me cus he was too worried to take me to meet her in case of what she thought so i think when he finally did tell her he was dating someone older thats when she said what she did and basically it put me right off. Plus it was only 6 years lol. Not even like it was 20 years!!!!!! Dont worry mate cus when your older you will be craving to date younger ladies instead of older ones.

I have dated younger guys and older guys, and I have found something very interesting. Maybe it's just because I am at a point in my life where I am not looking for a serious commitment right now. But the young guys I have gone out with are fun, spontaneous, and not clingy or dramatic. Most of the older guys latch on really quick, and I'm just not at that point. In my profile I distinctly say "FRIENDS" so there is no misunderstanding as far as my intentions, but they seem to ignore that part. Then, they get mad at me when I don't want to get serious. Sigh....

Nothing to do with men being younger...all men have an age like ladies...but us ladies look at the younger man as a threat to break our hearts...if you are young and handsome , all the man a woman could want...someday she will loose her looks and she will see you looking at another to replace her with...the heart of an older woman can't handle that, after so many hurts along the way...realistically, if you were meant to be together God would have made her younger or you much older...

Personally i think age shouldnt matter if to people love each other and its a shame that so called mature and older people cant relise this.I hope that when im older im not as judgmental and so easy to decline offers.Maybe this is why you get all these old lonely women on sites like this because they are to picky or bad at picking.This shows me they are no wiser then someone younger because they obviously have issues just use there age as a barrier of maturity.I love the whole life experiance speech thats a real cracker most of the older people i see have barely done much so i find it hard to take these comments seriously.

thank u and good night.

Women can be just as visual as you men. I love to see men younger then myself who are athelic and sexy.. The odd fantasy or 10 may pop into my head.. SORRY, I AM ALIVE. and single....mmmm. lol....but that is all it is....lol In all reality, I want a mature man.Im looking for a secure, long lasting relationship with a man no more then ten years younger , maybe,thats even pushing it ,, Im not into having a boy toy ,being a teacher.., or trying to pretend the age is on my birth certificate.was a terrible typo.Older men really know how to pleasure a women in many ways...The thought process is much different and life experience is sexy. Unfortunally alot of older men want the much younger ladies....lol. no comment, its safer...... lol....... and for all you old farts past 55 that keep sending emails, EVEN THOUGH I SAY UNDER 48 ,remember I think alot like you MEN.........,and I'm very visual as well....lol... sag and bag, and ball bras , I'm so not into.. so please, no more shirtless shots.......

I have no problem finding dates with older women, I do find it hard to get women my age to go out with. Usually too young or too old.

Post 21 I think that will change for you. As other posters said, there is limited things to do for dates at your age.

I could be wrong . . . but MOST younger guys just DON'T have the INSIGHT and EXPERIENCE of life that I'm looking for in a meaningful relationship . . . then the other factor is if he did have such insight and expereince . . . he would have to be at least 10 yrs older than my son who is 30 next month . . . so I'm back to 40ish . . .

Well, apart from a shameful and rather disturbing crush I have on Daniel Radcliffe (He's seventeen) Ye Gods!!!!! I've never really been attracted to much younger men. I tend to be attracted to men around my age or maybe quite a bit older than me.
I would never rule anyone out based on age though,.. there are lots of mature men out there who are quite young,.. just as there are some very immature older men.
Each is to be gauged on their own individual merits. DAx

I had to try it once, he was indeed in some ways more mature than the oldest one!
Honestly it's more common than people know about, and I have no problem with it..It's really about time.

It's just not common to meet ones like the one I saw, but If I did meet one like him the nine year difference made no difference at all.

Note women: " I learned more from a younger guy than an older guy, he was teaching me new tricks, not the other way around! lol!!"

The banana should be flesh colored with balls, then he would be more fun.
