And, unlike the 23-year-old who gets tanked and throws shade at your ex, she’s got class. I once went out with a young man from Queens who only dated older women because younger ladies, he found, couldn’t do a thing without checking in with 15 of their friends.
In fact, your ex will likely friend her on FB (like my old bf’s ex-wife did). When you date a younger woman, he said, you also date all her friends, and it’s “a pain in the fucking ass.” You can’t just go out and do your own thing because she must receive approval from a larger governing body.
So if you’re only seeking women in the 21-29 age range, let me tell you, you’re missing out. And by that I mean: her own career, her own friends, her own apartment, her own money.
A 30-year-old man from Brooklyn told me these factors are what makes older women a turn on. If she hasn’t tried it herself, she’s likely considered it.
Ironically, women tend to be more self-conscious of their bodies in their 20s and 30s.
In my sex therapy practice, I’ve worked with gorgeous young women who've refuse to try certain sex positions simply because they worried about their stomach, thighs, or butt looking “weird.” Middle-aged and older women still have their insecurities, but they tend not to obsess about them or share them quite as much.
Dating an older woman is quite the rage these days.
If you’re nervous about how to go about it, just remember that the most important thing you can do is to have confidence in who you are and to not make such a big deal out of your age difference.
There are a lot of reasons why dating an older woman might be attractive to you.
Maybe Robin Wright’s amazing quote in Vanity Fair about her life with Ben Foster ("Perhaps it’s not ladylike [to say], but I’ve never laughed more, read more, or come more than with Ben.
Then just sit back, relax, and enjoy the relationship, just as you would do when dating a woman of any age.
Well, if you’re a younger man looking to date an older woman, you’ll know that there’s truth in it.
