Older divorced men dating younger women
All that said, I do think there is a side of a man who dating a much younger women that at some point thinks to himself, “What the hell am I doing? Does he need me—a 50 year old woman to tell him I approve? If both of you are having fun, I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with what you are doing. ” In my opinion, deep down, he knows, but I’ll say it anyway.
” Case in point—I received this message from a reader: Now, why would this guy reach out and ask about the downside if he is saying “We both enjoy the relationship? If no one is getting hurt and if there are no false expectations on either part, then I think it’s great. The downside is, these kinds of relationships have a shelf life.
I also look about 10 years younger than my age (54).
I am really energetic and still enjoy many of the things I enjoyed in my 20s and 30s.
There’s no denying that they’re, for the most part, in better shape, with better skin, and less baggage from broken relationships.How does one navigate this “glass ceiling” of aging?I want to be in a relationship, and I’m worried it’s not going to happen. Here’s what I think about middle-aged men who say that they’re looking for much younger women: it’s often a dream, driven by a midlife crisis or a bruised ego.It’s a lot easier for a man to take out a carefree, responsibility free, baggage free, wrinkle free 28-year-old, which is why so many men try to go in that direction. Men want much younger women, but rarely do much younger women want older men.Put another way, if a woman has an array of other quality options closer to her age range, what incentives would she have to date a man who is SEVENTEEN YEARS OLDER? Before any 40 people get all hot and bothered about this – I am not judging. I do think people improve with age (my wife is nodding). She doesn’t need a guy who will be taking Viagra when she’s sexually peaking at 43..
