A number of them want younger women (never mind that I look much younger) – didn’t anyone tell these guys that women hit their sexual prime over 40:-)?
I’m besieged by the 50 set even though our lives are completely different (like my kids are young and theirs are grown and they don’t want anymore).
I’m amazed at how many of them fall for the psycho Bs and drama queens.
My last (short-term – I can’t find one healthy enough to become long term!
) boyfriend told me I was the first mentally healthy woman he dated in 3 years.
But although I had everything he wanted in a woman, he didn’t feel any “chemistry” for me – so he went back to a younger woman who had serious enough issues that she lost custody of her kids.

A number of gentlemen I’ve met shouldn’t have been dating at all because they are still grieving.
And the most surprising phenomenon that I’ve witnessed in this pool of men is that being a pretty, happy, vivacious “cool chick” is a big negative strike against me.
All this gives you a younger appearance — certainly younger than previous generations at the same age. This can be a lot of fun as you show him what women like and educate him for younger generations. In addition, a younger man's youthful exuberance can bring a lot of fun to dating overall.
