I was talking on the phone with one of my male best friends’ named Dan. He’s 28 years old and I am only a few years older than him. Now as long as I have known Dan (about 4 years) he has always told me how his goal in life is to get a trophy wife. He wants to be the 40 year old with the 20 year old hot girlfriend and then eventually marry her too.
We got on the topic of younger men being interested in me and of course that led to me asking him if he had ever dated an older woman. He told me that he did a few years back. Naturally I was curious about his reasons why he would date older women.
Below are his reasons why he would be interested to date older women:
1. Older women are independent, i.e. financially stable. This is kind of shocking for me to hear him say because whenever he talks about women, it never bothers him if a woman has a career and a stable job.
2. They can carry on an intelligent conversation with more depth than the latest gossip on whom Jennifer Aniston is currently dating.
3. They aren’t stupid. Girls in their early 20’s are just stupid. They get drunk and throw up in your car while an older woman would sip on a glass of wine and drink only enough to give a slight buzz. (Hey I didn’t say it, Dan did.)
4. Their kids are grown or at least old enough to be left at home without a babysitter.
5. The sex is amazing! (Ok you saw this coming.) According to Dan, older women are less inhibited and more mature about sexual experiences. They are not afraid to tell you what they like and how to do it. Their body images tend to be much more positive and show confidence in the bedroom. Their appetite for sex is also insatiable. It’s no exaggeration that older women crave sex more often and this is due primarily to hitting their sexual peak later in life. This is the reason why younger men and older woman mesh together sexually.
6. They are least likely to get pregnant. Older women are smart at protecting themselves from STDs and from getting pregnant and they aren’t ashamed to supply their own condoms.
7. Older women are not nagging you to marry them. Sure, many older women want to settle down and get married but they do not feel the urge of the biological clock as much as women in their 20’s.
I totally understand many of his reasons for wanting to date older women. In fact, many of his reasons are very valid. It has been a big help to understand the mind and motive of a younger man’s perspective.
