Four Things I’d Tell Men Who Trade “Up” For A Younger Woman

I feel like I live in the Twilight Zone. I have found that all guys play games, even when I have shown them that I am not into that. I just want to be real and have something real, whether it’s a friendship with a man or something more than that. Men will say one thing and do something else, hold back and not say what they feel so I have no idea, even just disappear without a word. Men say they want something good and special but they don’t see it or respect it when it is right under their noses.

Why It’s Time to Retire ‘Worst-Dressed’ Lists for Good in 2023

Knowing that she wants you to orgasm is so incredibly hot! The feelings of accomplishment is incredibly bonding and I believe this is what us guys want. Just having an orgasm isn’t what we are looking for. We have hands if that is really all we want. Being able to make a woman feel good and waiting for her until she is ready is super fulfilling. Well the purple unicorn is right here…but damned if I can find a decent guy.

Things to Know Before Dating an Older Man

I was faithful and loving in my marriage and in my other relationships. What I thought were nice men were actually liars, cheaters, and who were addicted to something…sex, drugs, and/or alcohol. Even at this age the immaturity level is astounding.

I disagree completely with this article’s title that asserts dating after 50 is easy for men but not so much for women. While there may be mathematically more single women than single men in the 50s demographic, how many of those men and women are still reasonably desirable? By that I mean how many are in shape, have not “let themselves go”, are not 50 lbs overweight , are not frumpy and have maintained an element of style about themselves? IMHO, there are far more “fit” 50-something men than women. I’m in my late 50s and when I go to my local gym, I see plenty of “in shape” guys in my age bracket working out. Attractive, stylish, physically fit women over the age of 50 have their pick of men.

What You Need to Know About Dating a 50-Year-Old Man

I am not someone who enjoys being alone. I like my own space and time to myself on a regular basis, but as a lifestyle being alone really sucks. I am sorry your wife didn’t value you for the man you are. You certainly have proven yourself through the years and you’d be a great companion for any kind woman. So, where are the 50 something women I seek. I have gone to the philharmonic, cooking stores to get that special implement, the library, long walks.

You might have felt less resistance in your younger years to adopting someone else’s way of doing things—because your own weren’t so firmly set in stone. “A major reason as to why dating is so much harder in your 50s is because you’re much more set in your ways and values,” says certified mental health consultant and relationship expert Claire Barber. “This isn’t a bad thing; it just means that it can be harder to get into the flow of dating because you have less patience for people who you don’t vibe well with.”

I am 58 years old and think that the reason many men seek younger woman is that the perception is that as woman get older they have less interest in sex. For us older men who still have a strong sex drive and good functioning equipment that can be frustrating. Woman need emotional connection to stay connected. Men need sexual attention to complete the connection. Finding a non-sexual partner seems to be less of a problem, a lot of nice men suffer from erectile dis-function and might welcome an older partner.

‘Lost in Translation is a sweetly melancholic tale of love, loneliness, and ennui. The film depicts the relationship between a middle-aged American actor and a much younger American woman who happen to meet in a hotel in Tokyo. They are seemingly lost in a world and culture so alien to them and begin to discover themselves in each other despite their age difference. These are two souls stuck in very different phases of life and yet they seem to have some sort of a connection between them. Their relationship seems platonic but it has a very ambiguous tone and we could never really know what Bob whispered in Charlotte’s ear and perhaps that’s the beauty of life.

Us fellas are not that good at it once we leave college. We get married, start a career and family, and totally throw ourselves into those two things; the unintended result is that we often lose time for and contact with our old buddies. Meanwhile, what new ‘couples’ friends we have are often generated by the wives. I relate to so much of what you wrote, being that single guy that never married. You bring up a very good point…men our age need a place to talk about this stuff and learn from each other because, as only guys like us know, we are somewhat outcasts in society.

Unlike dating in your 20s, you might simply fear that you’re just too old to be in the game in your 50s—and that shakes your confidence to the core. “You may feel limited, afraid, and self-conscious because you are aging, but don’t let that stop you from living your life,” says health and wellness coach Lynell Ross. Don’t try and hide the facts from your kids and introduce them to your new partner as soon as the time feels right. Holding off and hiding your relationships from them is only going to end in upset and sour feelings.
