Up until about four months ago, I’d been single for a little over three years. At first, I very much wanted to be single, but once that passed, I just couldn’t find the right person. I want someone who has developed a very specific voice for their dog that adequately represents their personality.
All of them were around my age, maybe a year or two older, but none of them stuck. Someone who is emotionally intelligent and compassionate. I want to be with the type of man who stands up for a pregnant woman on the bus, and doesn't yell things out of car windows.
We've made our position known and shared the thoughts and experiences of the women to whom we talked. One important question we asked was what they felt an older woman has to offer.
Here are some answers which are clear, articulate and to the point.
But as for not liking you simply because you’re whatever age you are? But if he’s young and he’s got plans, that momentum can be inspiring. If you happen to date a 25-year-old who just sold his start-up to Yahoo, then money is no issue. My boyfriend is a musician and composer who also works a part-time job, and he doesn’t have a disposable income. So no, he’s not springing for big dinners or trips to St. But the idea that a man will ciphon off money is only as true as the person’s character, not age.
A man struggling to make it knows the value of a dollar, and that alone is far more appealing than the one who throws money at you in an attempt to impress.
They’re very into the idea of spending time with a woman who brings a little more to the table—a whole world of experience and interests outside of his own. He’s smarter than you think and would welcome a grown-up conversation, not to mention a mature relationship.
To say men JUST want sex, especially young men, isn’t a fair assessment.
They may be less inclined to marry right away or at all, perhaps, but that’s not the same as not wanting a real relationship. Stop it with the, “Oh but he probably wants some 21-year-old chick with perfect breasts.” There will always be scores of young hot girls roaming the planet.
In "Older Women, Younger Men: New Options for Love and Romance," authors Felicia Brings and Susan Winter interviewed more than 200 men to discover the allure of the so-called "Mrs.
Robinson syndrome." You'll be surprised at what men find appealing about older women.
Men like curves—and the women who bear them with an air of self-possession and desire.
Guys like pleasing women and being enjoyed by a woman who appreciates them. I mean sheer energy—a bright, capable man who’s in the earlier phase of his career and life can be a thrill to be around.
