Survey says I became fascinated with the idea of older men with younger women and wanted to know how other women felt, so I devised a survey and got the opinions of a handful of women who have had some kind of romantic tie to men at least 15 years their senior.Most women think their older fellas are fantastic, with the exception of one woman who complained of being more of a "nurse-maid" than a romantic partner.
After looking at the view and talking about the action on the street below, I sat down beside him and asked if I could kiss him. He wanted to make sure I got home OK and we chatted for a few minutes before he said goodbye. My gentleman carried a hankie and the manners of a bygone age, from a time where men and women treated each other with respect.
Meeting this man made me think about the differences between seasoned older men and the urgent expectations of younger men; about maturity and experience vs. An older man's politeness, consideration, and charm can be irresistible, and if he's anything like my guy, it doesn't hurt if he resembles Gregory Peck.
I’m a 62-year-old woman and a younger friend had set me up with a 63-year-old man.
I went into the date feeling confident, albeit a little wary of what was going to unfold, but I hadn’t come close to anticipating what happened.
Why do they believe that women in their 60s aren’t fun or “tight”?
And more importantly, why haven’t they ever looked in a mirror?I've also dated younger men (much younger) and found the relationships were hollow and shallow. I put it all down to older men have more experience with women and therefore are more sensitive to our needs." The jaded nurse-maid was the only woman who would not recommend dating older men, and rightly so, but most women agreed that men get better as they age.Older men know who they are, what they want and where they're going. As one woman said, "Older men have a lot more going for them than we often think." Andropause When men reach their mid-30s and move into their 40s, they enter andropause, also known as man-o-pause, similar to women's mid-life menopause where hormone levels change and people take on new behaviours.That's a risk that a younger woman might take, I suppose, but overall, women who like older men love older men.Women found their mature men respectful, polite, handsome, generous, intelligent, kind, affectionate, sensitive, and good conversationalists, and were not considered pushy, demanding, or materialistic.It’s all well and good to want someone younger, prettier and fitter than the over 60 women, but you have to remember – you’re not necessarily young, fit and handsome either and expecting that while disregarding us is rude and absurd.
