I once got with a 37-year-old who had absolutely no idea what he was doing down there.
But, after talking with dating coaches David Wygant and Lisa Copeland, it occurs to me that women our age may be just as biased against older men as they seem to be against us.After all, most men over 60 don’t look like George Clooney, just like most of us don’t look like Jane Seymour.Partly because the current financial climate doesn’t allow the latter, but also because I enjoy my freelance, nomadic lifestyle.I tend to meet guys while I’m away travelling/working overseas and most of them are younger than me, but age really isn’t as big of a deal when you’re travelling as it is back home.‘Which then means there’s a weird time when a girl is like I NEED to have kids.
And it ends up not working.’ This is a very valid point, but if you’re a woman who’s pretty chill about getting married and popping out babies (hi), then there’s no problem. No-one bats an eyelid if a male dates a younger female, yet a woman goes even a few years below her own age and she’s suddenly a thirsty ‘cougar‘?Many older single women spend a lot of time looking for an attractive, kind, older, single man.While it’s true that some of us find the man of our dreams after 60, the majority of women that I have spoken to are deeply skeptical of this approach.For example, according to this Huff Post article, at ages 50-54, there are about equal numbers of single men and women.From age 60-64, there are close to 2.3 single women for every single man. Now, I’m not saying that women my age need to adopt a cougar mentality.Is it really realistic to believe that we will find a 65-year old man that dresses well, is financially independent and who loves spending time at the gym?
