From the author's bio:

Dr. Gracelyn SantosAbout Me:Dr. Gracelyn Santos is President and Co-Owner of Santos & Mroczek DDS ~ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Meiers Corners. She serves on 3 non-profit boards and is a published author and photographer. Married with 3 children, she is also a former Miss Staten Island.


 I dunno....does she SEEM like she'd have trouble figuring it out?

jaylectricity: Why do older women try to pretend that it's "gross" instead of being honest about their own insecurities?.


Because there's no advice that can really help the astute Dr. Lady Dentist other than: "Be younger."

Once the elasticity of her vagina starts to fade, shaming men is the only tool left in her toolbox.  "Honesty" sure as hell isn't going to cut it.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: The older women get, the crazier they get.  The young ones are crazy, but the older ones still dating are absolute minefields.

Additionally, while she may not be on as much of a deadline as a woman in her 30s or 40s for commitment because time is a-wasting to make little Jakey Juniors, I'm quite sure she is still concerned all the same about her biological clock on some level.

All women who want to have children are, especially planners and Type-As. They have a plan, I reminded him. We all have plans.

"when I get tired of them I just delete their numbers from my cell phone and stop taking their calls ... It doesn't really hurt them that much: at this point they're used to pump & dump!''

...and then men wonder why older women are jaded...

Really, is that all that an older woman can expect from life, to be nothing more than repeatedly pumped and dumped or to spent the next half of her life a lonely old cat woman? Is the advice to marry in your 20's and hope to hell you never divorce or your husband doesn't die because after that you are completely unwanted?

the moral of this story is if you are an older woman without a man it is because you chose to reject dozens of good quality men during your 20s, and now get to experience your own medicine during your 30s (with interest).

the advice is to invest in a good man when your market value is high instead of pissing away your 20s riding the badboy and alpha cock carousel. they will dump your ass as soon as it is worthless because they are are not stupid, and they are completely aware that you dont actually love them or care about them. they know that you only care about the way they make you feel and the way they make you look.

This



See my post above on how it is not an exclusive male trait to not be mature enough for marriage in one's twenties.

Also, as an aside, out of curiosity, while you beta males were all upset that the hot girls were "riding the badboy and alpha cock carousel " did you ever bother to even glance at some of the not so hot girls that were available to you at the time? Just letting you know not every girl in her twenties was aiming at an alpha or a 'bad boy', so perhaps it was only the girls you deemed 'worthy' of your interest.

Ok, I understand. We're not supposed to shame Rhianna for going back to Chris Brown because "women make choices based on many factors and influences and we have to respect that" but a man prefers younger women and well, this article speaks for itself.

Women make choices = exercising their inviolable rights
Men make choices =  wrong-headed losers destroying society and keeping women down, etc.

Oh god I've answered that already, are you all stupid? Scroll up and try reading it.

Also were you another one only looking at the hot girls that were doing the alphas/bad boys, instead of the not so hot girls that were available to you? I'm getting the feeling lots of guys are still pissed they missed out on some cheerleader who ran off with the guy in the leather jacket back in high school.

Not me. I asked out any girl who weighed less than 400 pounds (and yes, some were borderline there), and not one was interested, even though I was one of the few kids that took summer jobs from 16 years old onward. The only one I got to third base with said "No" at the last minute, so I put my clothes back on and left. She got back at me by telling everyone I was gay because I didn't realize "no" really meant "yes." Pretty much been bone dry ever since.

Peekachicka: shower_in_my_socks: Why is this issue never explored with the question "Why do younger women date older men?"?

This! People don't want to ask this question because any answer beyond "he has money or fame" would force them to think harder than Hollywood writers.

CS:
After years of having the "no more than five years" rule I started dating someone 20 years my senior. One date went to 2, 2 went to 10, 10 went to me moving in and now I'm planning our 4th Anniversary.

Guys my age are still binge drinking at the club or are just starting to find themselves. Which is all fine and dandy, its not my life. However, dating someone that loves sushi one week then hates it the next is too frustrating and confusing. One does not simply have time for that.

Why can't I love my boyfriend because he knows what he wants, he has more sexual experience, he has a steady routine, he doesn't need me to show him how to hang drywall, he is a gentleman, or because he is a (proven) good father?

No, it has to because I can't count to potatoe, need a sugar daddy, and I'm just waiting for the day for him to die so I can collect all of his insurance and sail away on some fancy yacht with my new boyfriend that has six pack abs and no ability to speak English while giving the finger to his entire family. Yeah, that makes MUCH more sense!


THIS THIS THIS THIS! My fiance is 23 years older than me but he is amazing and no he doesn't have money but he does have a fantastic personality. There is more to life than money,looks or any other superficial things. It's sad some people can't realize that.
/Congrats on your anniversary. :D

i have been fortunate enough to partake in a wide variety of the female form. 11/10 redheaded megahotties, cute fat tittied chubbies, skinny nerds, athletic tomboys and from hard learned experience, normal and average women are by far the best with fewer ego issues, head games, more down to earth personalities, and are actually loyal. nowadays when selecting a woman i ask myself this question, "if this person did not have a vagina, would i want anything to do with her?" it works!

I'll choose to believe you. Don't worry, as a male time is on your side and you sound like you do not have unrealistic expectations in the first place. Once you get over thirty, as long as you are prepared to date women your own age, you are going to be able to choose from a lot of single women that all these studmen are going to reject as being too old.

Quantum Apostrophe: Who wants to deal with a ... boring, demanding harpy whose idea of fun is shopping and eating? ... Or delusional ... pear-shaped women who weigh well into the mid 200s but insist they're not fat?


Like a scrotum, there it is in a nutshell.

Sounds like the track my marriage was on until she got cocky and bolted, only to find out I wasn't the problem.

Some women are mature for their age, but most who classify themselves as such are, in reality, merely old for their age, with the bitterness and jaded attitude that comes with aging like raw milk.
 
2013-03-26 03:57:51 AM  

TippySheraton: I noticed early on that the men who went for younger women were not the pick of the litter. They seemed rather insecure and self-centered.

Guys who liked older women though...wow...these guys are gems. Secure, adventurous and generally more intelligent.

My two cents.


In my experience when the guy who liked older women hit's his fifties and sixties, he desires to be with younger women for much the same reasons older women wanted to be with him when he was younger.
The twenty something's that I generally disdained in my youth, I now find to be open, adventurous, enthusiastic, stimulating and intelligent,  Certainly not stereotypically as a group but I rarely find those first four qualities in women in their late thirties, 40's and 50's at all any more. It seemed it wasn't so rare back in the day as I recall. Now day's they just seem mostly ruined. Of course there are all ways exceptions ... but

Because they can.


"You would think that men in their 40s would prefer women not born after the Cabbage Patch Kids were. Aren't older, more accomplished women more interesting and have more to offer? Don't insightful conversations and rich life experiences count for anything anymore? "

She seems pretty dismissive of a younger woman's ability to be interesting and smart.    Yeah, sweetie, just assume its  your wrinkly face that keeps you from dating your dentist buddy, and not the fact that you cant figure this quandry out.

voristrupp: Middle aged men by and large really are not very attractive. Many spend too much time biatching about their ex wives and annyong teenaged kids
Just because the media tells them that they are all entitled to a hot 22 year old doesnt make it true.

The term "rhino" is often used for tge ines who think an expensive car makes them hot shiat...stubborn. grumpy ugly and horny. "Trout" is another word for an old guy who buys sex from women way out of his league physically.


A perfect match for 20-somethings women who snag older men that are are way out of their league mentally and financially.

Reminds me a Benny Hill skit. The older woman turns to her man, (Benny Hill) after seeing him staring at a young, attractive woman and asks, "What's she got that I don't have?" Benny answers, "Nothing - she's just not had it as long."

I believe you. When I was in my twenties, I was so shy and damaged that the concept that an alpha female would sleep with me was laughable. So I basically went after the "regular" girls (and my standards were pretty low). I was educated, worked constantly when not in school, polite, respectful, etc. etc. Shot. Down. In. Flames. almost every single time.
 
2013-03-26 09:14:49 AM  
It's not just because younger women are physically more attractive. My wife is going to be 37 this month but could pass for mid twenties (yes she's Asian, how could you tell?).

However, what good is that if I only have sex with her once a month? I would settle for an older looking woman with a little more enthusiasm. She's a good mother though and I love my kid so I'm not going anywhere. And no, I'm not a fat bald slob...my wife just doesn't put sex high on the list. Or at least not with me. If I caught her cheating it would almost be a relief, because then we could have a conversation about an open marriage...not the best outcome since I would prefer a wild sex life with my wife...but the way I figure I've got a few more good years, and I am wasting them on redtube.

That would be fair, men get younger women who want them for their money, and women get younger men who want them for their money. Only it rarely works that way around.

How about not dismissing all women who reach a certain age and have some (workable) issues? In a batch of coal one can still find a diamond.  It just takes some willingness to look (not to mention have something of yourself to offer).

Leaving aside the hilarious ignorance of materials science, why do you think wealthy aging men are going to waste time looking for a diamond that may or may not even exist under all that coal, when there are piles of diamonds all around to claim?

Broke Angry and Depressed: WhippingBoy: Broke Angry and Depressed: Quantum Apostrophe: It's not so much that I'm attracted to younger women, it's that there's nothing I want from a woman my age. Who wants to deal with a pre-menopausal, boring, demanding harpy whose idea of fun is shopping and eating? Or some sort of career-driven superwoman running around all the time and has no time for a simple walk in between running the universe and buying expensive crap? Or delusional middle-aged pear-shaped women who weigh well into the mid 200s but insist they're not fat?

So bacically when women gets to that point they should just head for the cliffs like lemmings (because even though they have to deal with the constant inequality of just exisiting in this world, and some of the factors in their lives might be caused by biology or society (and the men who control it,)) they have nothing left to offer the poor men. who are forced to turn to younger women.

What's your solution? Force men at gunpoint to go for bitter, self-absorbed, middle-aged hags?

We could do that, but why is that in our own best interests to do so? Relationships aren't based on charity, they're based on desire.

When a single guy hits late 30s, he's suddenly extremely attractive assuming he's had moderate career success and kept in decent shape.  You don't even need to be a world beater economically, the fact that you've had 10+ years of income and COLA raises than your apartment makes you look rich as fark to people in college or just out of college with student debt.  Plus the man has experience in the dating game and generally acting mature.  He's suddenly a hot commodity.

Whereas something like 1 in 4 college educated women are still unattached in their mid 30s.  However one must consider why?  Why was the successfully educated woman not snatched up by a man prior to this or at least in a stable relationship?  Odds are due to the fact she's farking ugly or has the personality of a fire breathing chimera.  As a man you have better odds of finding pleasant women by riffling though the 20 something pool of women, sure you'll hit some bimbos but there are more potentially good finds in that pool and you can take longer doing background research in that pool due to less pressure from the biological clock.  You can of course end up with a trophy wife that only likes you for your money, but of course if you marry a 30 something you could end up with Hell biatch.

The other thing to consider is a lot of the guys who are Alphas in their thirties, weren't Alphas in college.  They were busy busting their ass to cover tuition, pass their classes, and thus ignored because they weren't candidates to take a girl to Aspen or the Caymans on Spring Break.  Some of those men end up misogynists and just eager to fark the women they couldn't get in college.  Others aren't misogynist but definitely not interested in certain types of women, such as the ones that gave them the cold shoulder in college for various reasons.

To answer your question, wealthy men, although arduous in gaining their money, are lazy when it comes to finding a mate, and those "diamonds" they think they've got, are just cubic zirconias who are likely to drop them as well when fondling wrinkly parts every night doesn't do it for them anymore.
