BRING IT ON!

Dating Older Women

Well I can't believe I am actually considered the older woman but at 37 and single, in most men's eyes I am!

But hallalujah to this article because with enough of this in the media I will have a chance at a lot more men to date and have potential relationships with! YEEEHAAA!

"The reasons why some men date older women are as varied as the women themselves. These women, because of their experience, often have more wisdom and self-assurance than younger women -- perhaps they may also possess more self-reliance and tolerance. Some men receive mentoring from older women, who have had more relationship experience and often understand men well. Clearer about who they are and what they want, "older women" may even have an advantage in the dating arena."

I totally dated out of my age bracket before I married David. Some parts (ahem) were great, other parts were immature and selfish. I think that is because men don't finish growing up until they are in their thirties. So I would say, don't go younger than twenty-nine.

Lady Banana - Is that why you call yourself bananas? :-)

Carrie - Too funny! Right now I am not going in any direction. But hoping this article and attitude opens more opps for me. :-)

My husband is 4 years younger than me, in fact I think I may have only gone out with one or two men that were older. Boy toys are the way to go...if you get them young enough you may even be able to train them (I say this with tongue firmly planted in cheek)

Lauren said...

Gypsy, YIHAAA! Way to go woman!

I'm younger than my lady by 8 years.
It seems every TV show lately has been making mention of cougars. lauren, you're still a young attractive woman. I hope you find what you're looking for.

Lauren said...

D.O.M. - Thanks! Awe shucks!

37 is just hitting your prime

Babs (Beetle) said...

Well they say men are in their prime late teens, early twenties. Women in their thirties. This definitely spells out 'toy boys'

Lauren said...

Babs, yes sexually we'd be a match, me and the toy. But emotionally I think it'd be like having another baby kitty around...a lot of exhausting work and messes I'd have to clean up after. ;-)
