Some older women ARE interested in them. Just not you.
Be polite, say thanks but no thanks.

I respond with LOL...I could be your mama....thanks for the laugh hun..and that usually garners a response of "age is only a number" to which I roll my eyes and delete the message.
My last bf was 8 years younger (or only 6 now according to his new profile), but 17 years is pushing the envelope a bit I think, I'd die if my 18 year old son was dating someone in my age group...that's just wrong

Why don't you have it specified in your profile somewhere if it bothers you so much.
Maybe because it doesn't bother you so much. My opinion is that age doesn't matter but state of mind and maturity does.

To the OP, I have always found myself attracting older women. I've been hit on by much older women at work. I even have this female customer, married, who is easy close to 60 and she phones me up just to chat and asks me to come over for tea! Last year a women contacted me 10 years older and dated me for awhile. My mom's friend is 21 years older than me, and is always telling my mom that is she wasn't married she would scoop me up in a minute. Never stops flirting with me. This has been going on my whole life. I don't know why.

But younger women flirting with me? Or even my age? Never. Not happen once. That's why I'm still single.

So it is true, there are lots of older women interested in younger guys. Just not you. But they don't know that, so say so in your profile.

I get that too and I'd be interested in knowing the answer as well... Maybe it's for the conquest? An experienced lover? I guess they don't know men over 30 are better lovers :)

People always want what is harder to get or might be out of the norm. When men are teenagers they want to have an affair with an older woman because they know it's a novelty and kind of taboo. When men get older they want a young girl to relive their youth and get an ego boost. Same goes for women. Not that I think it's not possible to find a match at each end of the age spectrum I just don't think the large amount of these relationships are real.

I'm always going to be into young men, till I'm old, decrepit n decaying, send them to † §weet £eaƒ † I have not dated anyone over 25, since I was 25. I realize I have over 25 filters set on my incoming messages, but I'm not looking for conversation from most of them. If they are under 25 creative and smart, which I like, they will find a way to get ahold of me. I'd love to find one as a keeper, but I won't hold my breath!!!

I don't think I know that younger men are interested in me because they keep writing me asking me out. I think that is interest, isn't it?? Whether I'm interested or not..well that's different.

why is it , in your mind that the young women are interested? just wanting to get a male perspective


A very interesting question, indeed. I think that a lot of younger women are interested in me because I look younger than I actually am and I am more intelligent than most men their own age. Oddly enough, they don't seem to run when I inform them of my real age. But that still doesn't explain why I get email from women on this site who are younger and ARE aware of my age. Last year, I was dating two women who had an age difference of 22 years between them.

older women are intrested in younger men. firsrt because younger men can keep it up longer , and alot of women still need that feeling of being with a younger man just for that resion sex, next is a statis did you see so and so did you see that young stud she is with dam . where can i get one of those she is lucky, and last its how he makes her feel as a women I may be old but i can still pick up younger men that are intrested in me. its the same for men with younger women so get off your high horse and admit it .if you did not have a son there age and your husband and you were divorced yes you would go out with them . but its mostly women who are just divorced from thir husbands and need the extra feeling of some one thinking that they still sexy and attractive to be with . and for the young guy all he is thinking its cool to be with an older women the trick is can he learn from you all about sex can you teach him to be the best lover and how to please other women and not to think only of him self but to think of the womens needs first way before his own can you do that .

young women want securty, a man that will treat them good not like younger men that do not know how to . they look at what an older man will buy them , and teach them how to make love to a man as well as how much older men know about pleaseing women most older men can please a younger women more then there young boyfriends . younger women feel comfortable with an older man rather then with someone there own age .

I never suspect older women are interested in me. Trust me, I'm not mature enough for the ones who are younger than me

hey girl, you should feel flattered. I am 47 and receive alot of emails from younger guys. I was married to a guy 14 years my junior and let me tell you sweetheart, there was no mother son relationship. I still prefer younger guys. Don't knock it until you tried it. Age is just a number and there are alot of mature younger men that like dating older woman because they don't have the emotional baggage and know what they want out of life. Good luck

I'm noticing a common theme with women my age. They seem to have this disdain for their age group and have some kind of immature need to be accepted by the young. I find it ironic that in order to find someone who isn't looking to always have their ego boosted and/or be completely hung up on looks, you have to turn to women under 30 since they seem so much more mentally stable. I'm not sure what has caused this vapid attitude in older women but it sure does nothing for me. I think people are basing their ideals on what the media tells them which is really stupid.

another good point, but I will tell you that most of the younger men on here are looking for a onenighter... they can say what they want, and I have heard it all, I told one guy :i'm old enough to be your grandmother,, he laughed and replied .. you don't look like anybody's gramma .never the less, I have sons in there 3o's and when a 22 year old comes on and insist he has alot to offer, a 59 year old woman, i have to laugh, the mind set of these guys is unbelievable.. i have nothing in common with a man "boy" who is 40 years younger than me ... and my sons would have a cow... after all is said and done , the young girls out there are pushing these guys to look for a more mature woman with experience ... i married a man 5 years younger than me and after 18 years, he ran off with a younger woman ... so my advice is to leave the boys on the playground alone ......

I'm 33 and have been seeing/hanging out/dating this women that is 44. We hit it off seeing as we are both writers. The age difference isn't really an issue, but for others it may be. She even told me one night that her ex boyfriend told a mutual friend that I was her "Boytoy". I think the muthafucca was jealous because I swept her off her feet and snatched her from his drunk ass. All I can say is if the chemistry is right, who cares about age? I've had older women always hit on me, "boytoy" or not I could give a rats ass because I'll be getting it on without having to worry about Levitra or Viagra

Younger men are hopeing to meet a 'sugar momma'. One young stud told me he hoped to find a "lonely" older woman with money so he could quit his job and live off a sugar momma. Young studly's often suffer delusions. They actually dream that some grown women want a big overgrown, worthless, snot miner mooch in thier life raiding thier refridgerators. Delusions abound with some con-fused guys.
I just delete the young boys who are looking for a 'mommy'.
I like a grown serious respectable man, not an immature kid looking for a mommy.
If I wanted a kid I would adopt one of the millions abandoned at the orphanages or I would hire a houseboy.
Not into men over 8- 10 years younger then me, 15 years is too far a stretch, unless he is 67 and I am 82, then maybe, depending on his mental maturity and physical health, it may work then. lol. Will see. Thanks but no thanks to young guys.

I have had this experience and I feel it depends on the maturity level as well. I remember for my 40th birthday my 20 year old daughter took me to "Tropix" a dance club in the cities for those who do not know...where girls wearing bikinis under umbrellas sold beer from ice chests. I was just amazed at everything. My sister in law and I stood, I am sure with our mouths hanging open taking it all in. One of the young bouncers followed her around the whole night and they chatted. I had a young man following me repeatedly asking me to dance and I tried politely to say no but he was relentless..LOL I finally said I was looking for my daughter and he ran off. LOL

I have had relationships with much younger men and ones my own age...the only one older was my first husband (who I lost when I was 23)...

There is nothing wrong with dating or having a relationship with someone younger..it just depends on the couple. I just got my heart crushed by someone my age and I will have to say...the younger men seem much more caring and much more appreciative of us "Older women" besides...when your hot your hot. I agree with some of the others...if it bothers you so much, specify it on your profile.
