This one’s a no-brainer.
For the sake of clarity, however, let’s define “older”. I’m not talking about “grannies” (I know nothing about dating grannies). I’m referring to women commonly known as “cougars” (a term I happen to find distasteful). But I also think this can apply to any woman significantly older than the guy himself.
Gentlemen, take my advice—do NOT pass on older women. You’d be making a big mistake. The math is simple:
Age = Experience = Confidence
Experience and Confidence. I defy anyone to tell me these two qualities aren’t at the root of attraction.
Not that there aren’t any intelligent young women (there are plenty, I know), but conversation tends to be more interesting with older women. They’ve usually seen more, done more, and can bring more to the table as a result.
Older women also tend to have less sexual hang-ups. They know what they want and they aren’t fickle about it. That is pretty darn sexy. And, if I can be so bold, it isn’t often that I learn a new sex trick from a younger woman.
And let’s talk beauty. Do I really need to take the time to list all the women who might be considered “older” but are still stunning? Not only are women capable of becoming more beautiful as they age (there are women who barely got a second look when they were younger who age into very fine beauties indeed); if they’re confident, their looks only radiate brighter.
Obviously I say all this from experience. For the longest time I only dated women younger than myself. When I finally had a fling with a “cougar” (argh! there’s that awful word again!), it turned out to be the best sex I ever had up to then. (I won’t list the tricks she taught me; let’s just say I still use them to this day…)
So don’t filter your profiles to exclude older women! The least you can do is chat them up, and hear what they have to say.
One of my friends said it best: A couple of years ago, after spending a lifetime dating women who were younger than him, he told me, “Y’know, I’ve given it a lot of thought, and I’ve decided I can’t date younger women anymore. As soon as I cum, I have nothing left to say to them.”
