Perhaps it is simply an age thing at this point? I know I am older now, maybe the issue revolves more around being gray and bald? I take really good care of myself and from my perspective, even subtracting for age, I think I would be fairly appealing on various levels to a younger woman.
Any helpful pointers you could offer I would appreciate. Let me start by saying I can totally understand why older men go for younger women. All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older. And what I also observe, is Men may want much younger women, but rarely do much younger women want older men.
OK so she left me when I lost my job … but we really did love each other!!! She understood the advantages in dating a 49 year-old guy. My much young x-girlfriend told me she likes older men because we embody wisdom and stability. We can afford nicer restaurants and vacations and have cultivated greater tastes in the arts.
She even told me once I remind her of her father… strong, nurturing guy who took care of her and treated her like a princess. But you must understand that any woman you desire in that age group has choices. Lots and lots of choices. She can go out with a cute, successful man who is And nobody has more choices than a year-old woman. She could probably find him. All she has to do is go online, and wade through a few thousand applicants, go to a few happy hours or attend a few singles events and have a few options.
Are you getting the idea? A partner or maybe a youthful father for her unborn children to help her raise them. Not a father figure for herself. Singles need to be more flexible about the age thing. Youthful extremely attractive people have tons of options and can afford to be choosy. I know… we are just human and want what WE want, even if what we want is unrealistic.
Yes there will be some younger women that will overlook your age. They usually are the type that have a strong lust of money or maybe they need a daddy figure, but most of the 30 somethings I talk to, are completely creeped out at the prospect of dating a guy who was alive when JFK was alive. We all have to come to terms with the person in the mirror as we age. Why not accept someone who likes you for you not your money or social status? Keep your box of options wide open and remember ….
Age is just a number. All the best on your quest!
