Thats a myth. If I ever heard one. Good men treat you good regardless of age, and bad men well f**k up regardless of age.

1) they are older and wiser 2) have learned from past experiences 3) pay a lot for viagra so they need to be nice to ensure they get some and have not wasted their money........

Perhaps.........just perhaps, some men have actually learned from mistakes and wish not to make them again.....Just a theory, though.......I could be wrong...

Easily Answered...

Well I believe that Older men now I mean some becuase not all older men are like this but older men I find were brought up with a sense of old fashioned values meaning they respect us girls. Now younger men not all but most are still in that immature stage and with todays t.v and music it certianly dosen't help with rappers calling us ho's and b!tches every five seconds in one song. Older men have been through the partyin faze and are willing to spend more time with the woman they love. now this isn't all men...( I feel the hate mail coming on.. ) thats why I perfer older men..but I do have a tendencie to be attracted to younger men as well depends on the personality..

any old fashion kind of guys out there?


I would like to think I am old school rather than old fashioned. I like modern things but still hold onto old values. Some might call me a bit of a retrosexual

I am happy some some people believe that maturity brings forth a better level of treatment to a relationship. I know I prefer more mature women for the same reason. However, age does not always correlate with maturity and so there is no guarantee an older male or female will treat you better.

Maturity is an attribute often associated with patience, understanding, compassion, tolerance and forgiveness. I would take that ovber age any day

older men are just "boys with experience" that have learned from their past mistakes

I'd imagine some women are turned off by the higher sex drive of younger guys.

Another possibility is that "It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness" and older men are better at doing the first, seeing problems in a relaitonship and fixing them rather than just getting frustrated.

Of course, I'd be careful with the generalizations. If you like "older men" who are you dating? Divorced 50 year olds with families? 40 year old bachelors who never settled down and have been with dozens of girls? Who are we talking about?

Also, a lot of girls don't want to date older guys. The grandpas have more money and they're thankful for what they get. Some younger guys can find a new girlfriend in a week or two and know it, which is never good for a serious relationship.

I'd like to know just what 'treat me good' means to a woman.

Whoa! What planet do you live on???

My oldest daughter summed it up perfectly

"The men of your generation have terrible attitudes"

I would take the attitude of a man in his 30s over one in his 40s or 50s anyday!

older men treat women better because they realize that they are closer to their own death with each passing year. it's easy to treat people badly when you are young-you think that you have all the time in the world. as you get older, you realize that you one day are going to die, and thus worry about the legacy and reputation you might leave behind. you also worry about being judged by god, plus you realize that most women are gems...and you treat them accordingly...
