So if you’re only seeking women in the 21-29 age range, let me tell you, you’re missing out. And by that I mean: her own career, her own friends, her own apartment, her own money.
A 30-year-old man from Brooklyn told me these factors are what makes older women a turn on. If she hasn’t tried it herself, she’s likely considered it.
That’s when I understood what it was to be in that role, to be someone’s bitch, essentially.
And I could appreciate it when it was my turn to take care of someone else.” The general consensus on cougardom is not so much a specific age as it is who you date.
“As a dude, I’m told that I’m supposed to date girls my own age and take care of them, pay for dinner, and so on.
But for that period of time, the roles were reversed. And it felt great—who doesn’t want to be taken care of?
As might someone who’s 55 and dating a 30 year old. And someone who was impossibly needy at 25 may be even moreso at 35, especially if she hasn’t had the relationships she’s wanted.
It only lasted as long as it did because she was one of the prettiest girls I've ever dated -- that and she was a singer… I know a lot of guys in their 20s and 30s feel that a younger woman is better. I’m sorry, but I’ll take matured over inexperienced any day of the week and I have 10 good reasons for it.They understand their emotions, and they understand what it is they want out of a relationship.They're more willing to commit and to talk things out in order to make the relationship work.And, unlike the 23-year-old who gets tanked and throws shade at your ex, she’s got class. I once went out with a young man from Queens who only dated older women because younger ladies, he found, couldn’t do a thing without checking in with 15 of their friends.In fact, your ex will likely friend her on FB (like my old bf’s ex-wife did). When you date a younger woman, he said, you also date all her friends, and it’s “a pain in the fucking ass.” You can’t just go out and do your own thing because she must receive approval from a larger governing body.
