Braving "robbing the cradle" jokes, almost one-third of women between ages 40 and 69 are dating younger men (defined as 10 or more years younger).
According to a recent AARP poll, one-sixth of women in their 50s, in fact, prefer men in their 40s.
After all, young women are fun, free-spirited, energetic and have a zest for life.
This youthful energy is attractive to an older man who may be feeling his mortality.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I would not stand for being called up to be checked on but is he doing that or is he just asking what you've been doing because he's interested? If it's the ED: If he can do it by himself he should be able to do it with you. Disgusting.^^^^ first of all "HOT MISSY" maybe you SHOULD READ HER POST THOUROUGHLY...man's not an alcoholic FCOL, he's an old man..squeezing the juice outta the dehydrating citrus if you will. just because the man has a few drinks MAY NOT make him an alcoholic.assuming. I'll be 82 in 30 years and if I can still drink a few and whack it... I know there are some differences in the way our generations see things, but I'd like to suggest that you cut the guy some slack.
Admit it, when you see an older man who's dating a much younger woman, you assume it's because he must be going through some sort of mid-life crisis.
The much touted idea that women peak sexually in their 30s and men in their teens does not enter into it -- most of these couples are beyond both those age periods.
But what about the notion that men are "hard-wired" to seek a smooth-faced, curvy receptacle for reproduction and thus are drawn to younger women?
In my opinion, there is a lot more than just 15 years that separates you from your 42-year-old boyfriend.
He's had a heck of a lot more life experience than you have.
