Share this article Share But two years ago, when one friend sat Wendy down and told her she should start acting her age, she listened. Until this turnaround, Wendy had spent 20 years dating men much younger than her, whom she met through friends or dating websites. But an infatuation with toyboys certainly wasn’t something Wendy always aspired to. She was twice married to men her own age – once at 21 for two years, and then again four years later. When the second marriage ended after 14 years, Wendy found herself single at 42, with a daughter from each marriage and a sense that she had given her 20s and 30s to men who didn’t appreciate her. These are wealthy men, but I’ve seen better dressed tramps’ Freshly divorced, she was deter-mined to claw back some of the excitement she’d missed, and on a skiing trip with her elder daughter, the perfect opportunity arose – and she ended up having a fling with a boy young enough to be her son.
Why Would a Younger Woman Want to Date a Much Older Man?
At the time that Darwin’s On the Origin of Species was published, the earth was “scientifically” determined to be million years old. By , it was found to be 1. In , science firmly established that the earth was 3. Finally in , it was discovered that the earth is “really” 4. In these early studies the order of sedimentary rocks and structures were used to date geologic time periods and events in a relative way.
Just a thought if you could use a females perspective.
Your Lowness No kidding. I think this is the one thing I absolutely hate about the prospect hopefully reality!! The loss of control, the loss of autonomy. I embraced a monkish austerity. I got rid of as much debt as possible and committed to purchasing less, doing with less, in all facets of my life. It was a complete turnabout for me. The popular conception of happiness is a joke.
Older Women Dating Younger Men: Doomed from the Start or Happily Ever After in Cougarville?
Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
I want him so bad, and he is always on my mind.
As I mentioned, there are exceptions — there is a group of guys who prefer older women, and there is a group of women who is uniquely attractive despite being older. But denying that a significant age difference is an issue is like denying that a typical woman wants to be with a guy who is taller. Many younger men appreciate the wisdom, intelligence, reponsibility and maturity an older woman brings to the relationship.
Most younger men in this study, preferred to date years older than their own age. You underestimate how many younger men are tired of the games women their age play. Again, there are exceptions, but relying on it is a risky proposition, to say the least. I am sure that Beyonce and Sophia Vergara will look great at 50 or even older, but this cannot be said about most women out there. Plenty of older women married to much younger men.
Sometimes I am more available than others. More importantly — not every woman has the same goal. I am sad to know that many older women are in denial about the fact that a big age difference is a virtually insurmountable obstacle as far as long term relationship goes. Their relationships are clearly ALL doomed to fail.

Comment Tony December 11, , 7: You are right on with your analysis of the things that men over 40 encounter in the dating scene. I especially would like to piggyback on the discussions about women my age having such an in-depth, extensive checklist when it comes to finding Mr.
Plenty of older women married to much younger men.
What do you say about the reverse? I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman — physically that is, but why would a year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? Penelope Dear Penelope, Beats the shit out of me. I can totally understand why older men go for younger women. Time creates wisdom — but it also creates responsibilities and complications — mortgage, kids, career, etc. All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older.
Still, most of them fail miserably, for the exact same reasons that I think Penelope is suggesting. Men want much younger women, but rarely do much younger women want older men. She can find that same amazing guy at age

Please respond with authenticity, support, and respect Cancel I see this thread ended almost a year ago, but my search has landed me here. I am a 30 year-old woman, marriage and family therapist. I work in a community program that I am very passionate about. Part of dating, especially online dating, that kills me, is finding someone who is equally passionate about their career especially a career closely related to my field mental health advocacy, working with at-risk youth, etc.
We are essentially co-workers who don’t work together. We maybe see each other 2 x weekly in passing. We have recently started spending time together. The drawback other than breaking the golden-work rule , is that he is I feel amazing with him and we share similar interests–and he understands how much I value my career. I have done 12 years before when I was in my 20s–it was awful. Now that I am centered with my career, the only thing that let’s me just drop everything and go for it, is the fact that I eventually, want to have kids.
