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

Trust me honey, it's far less gross than whatever spoiled flower you've got growing between your legs.

My uncle Jim was a lifelong bachelor of the straight variety. He also managed to stay in amazing shape and looked about 65 in his early 80's. At age 83, he brought a date to a family picnic who was a good looking milfy 40-45 or so. The difference in reaction between the men and the women was the damnedest thing I've ever seen.
The women there looked like they were going to start a lynch mob. The men were dumbstruck with admiration.

I married my second wife when I was 39 and she was 25. Twelve years later, we don't regret it. My first wife just turned 62, and I don't regret marrying her either.
I'm still attracted to women my age & older. And younger. If we broke up, I can't honestly say how old my next girlfriend would be.

Not sure why, but quite a few attractive young women seem attracted to a slim, polite, graying man with a decent job who can make them laugh... and can drive them wild in bed. Quite a few attractive older women are attracted to a slim, polite, not entirely grayed man with a decent job who can make them laugh... and can drive at night.

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.

"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.

You can talk to yourself without using an internet forum, you know.

Nidiot:
 You know how most men are not ready to settle down and have kids in his 20's, that may also apply to some women. That is a very young age for anyone to know what they want in life IMHO and I would not personally recommend anyone get married before they are thirty. Twenty somethings of either gender are rarely mature enough. (I agree there are always exceptions, before I get a list of people explaining their own personal success stories.)


Also "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" is exactly the same thing I could say about any man dating a girl young enough to be his daughter. Shallow people ...

madgonad: I have a hard time imagining dating a girl in her 20s now that I am over 40. I deal with them at work frequently and they are mind-numblingly annoying. You can't have sex every minute of the day, so you have to deal with vapid twaddle for hours on end. Just find someone close to your age that you like to be with and enjoy getting old together. I also don't understand the logic from the woman's side. Spend the best years of your life with some old codger, and when he checks out out when you are around 50 don't expect to attract another one. My mother-in-law was 32 years younger than her husband and was widowed when she was in her late 40s. Been alone ever since - and she was hella hot when she was younger - still looks good now. (always something to note when choosing a spouse, if mom looks good than the daughter should age well too).

I'm a 32 year old man who has been dating a 23 year old for the last couple of months.  Her optimism, enthusiasm, and playfulness make her very enjoyable to be around.  The sex is great.  And other guys look at you in awe when you enter a bar/restaurant with an attractive younger women on your arm.

But dating a younger woman does have its downsides; younger women tend to be more flaky and unreliable than older women, and they're also more fond of "playing games" rather than just being straight with you.  Still, I'm happy enough with her that I don't have a lot of regrets.

Younger women are (generally) more physically attractive, less jaded, more fun, and less concerned about their biological clocks.

Likewise, older men are (generally) more mature, financially stable, and looking to settle down. And men usually age better.

The equation is so obvious that I don't even know what problem people would have with it.

When I was a high school freshman, the girls my age wanted to date the seniors. In college, they wanted guys with careers. But then they turn middleaged and suddenly wonder why men their age aren't interested in them. That young girl taking the older guys was you 20 years ago.
