Dating 60 year old women
"They can smell me a mile away," she told me after she chatted with him about restaurants, real estate, his children, and his grandchildren, while the rest of us kids enjoyed a game of floating beer pong in the pool. "I don't want you to get hurt, dear," she whispered with reserved aplomb."He is married, you know."Megan isn't a homewrecker and by the time we made it back to Los Angeles, with the help of Tinder we found her another suitable match, Gary, 68, an accomplished businessman who lives in San Francisco, vacations in Palm Springs, and loves golf.It was a handwritten 'thank you' card from George Bush telling me I was a talented artist and a wonderful writer and to stick with it! You can call it being a gentleman but women are almost pleased or flattered when a man in his thirties does this. At this point in the game, they have their shit together and they know what they want.If they want you they're not going to make you question it.For these reasons and others, my friend Megan O'Brien, a successful woman in her own right as the founder of the marketing agency Beauty Brander, almost exclusively dates men in their sixties and older.We recently attended a wedding in Palm Springs together, a fancy affair with pool parties, fireworks, and a ceremony at the Empire Polo Club where they host the Coachella music festival.Old guys aren't my thing, but every time I ask my 30-something boyfriend to talk seriously about our future or shuffle through his apartment that has empty pizza boxes stacked on the dining room table, I can see the advantages of having had someone else remove the training wheels. It's exhausting."Megan can actually date her attraction to silver foxes back to childhood and a certain ex-President from the late 1980s/early 1990s: "I think this is all George H. In middle school we had an assignment to write a letter to a famous person. The rest of my sixth grade class felt this way about Donnie Wahlberg.
Megan's quick-witted retort is to rattle off the names of male celebrities who are sexagenarians, septuagenarians, and even octogenarians who you would probably sleep with: Harrison Ford, 71, Clint Eastwood, 83, Jack Nicholson, 76, Robert Redford, 77. "From an early age I just found older men to seem reliable and supportive. Bush (he was president at the time) was the most handsome man in the world.Dissimilarities in background, education, and religion top the list. Some men, who are single after being married most or all of their adult lives, just can't seem to "get it together." They don't seem to be as resilient as women. Even after menopause, when a woman's ovaries make much less estrogen and progesterone, the symptoms may continue.If you and your ex spouse(s) were from diverse cultural backgrounds, had differing family experiences, differing levels of education, and a different religion, perhaps it is time to re-think what to look for in a new relationship. Menopausal hormone therapy may help control these symptoms.Long story short, I worked really hard on my card to George H. His birthday was coming up so I did a charcoal drawing of his face and wrote a birthday message." The hard work paid off. I am perfectly capable of doing the above myself but a real gentleman would never even think to have me do such a thing."About three weeks later, I got a letter from the White House. ] No one ever heard back from The New Kids on the Block. Old men are polite and thoughtful and young guys are generally self-centered."Megan is so passionate about dating older that she made me a list (a good one) of the five reasons that dating men in their sixties is just preferable to dating men in their twenties and thirties and why we should all stop judging her for it.1. I like a strong man that was raised when it wasn't abnormal to open your door, pull out your chair, and carry a heavy bag. To treat a woman like a LADY is the norm with a man in his sixties.2. A man in his sixties is not going to wait five years or even two to commit.
