30 year old dating 50 year old
Should you automatically go dutch or expect her to pay? In fact, you want to impress someone, treat a lady with some bank to a nice meal, because she appreciates exactly how much it costs. So when you take her out with your friends or coworkers, be it to a wedding or work event, you don’t have to worry she’ll perish without your constant attention. Since she’s got a little life on her (and maybe even a marriage in her past), she may not have the rigid checklist that a younger girl has.
She’s been to enough of these things on her own to manage just fine while you’re talking to someone else. Most of the single women I know over 35 just want a good man, period.
If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” – Mark Twain The question is simple, as life expectancy goes up and people take better and better care of themselves, do traditional notions of appropriate age differences in relationships matter?
Are we just making it harder on ourselves by refusing to consider potential partners who are outside our age limits?
There are certainly ways for older women to conceive children, but most men who want families tend to try and date women who are younger than 40.
Aside from that scenario, however, is there any reason that a 30-year-old woman can find love with a 37-year old and not a 44-year-old? Knowing that there are men of that age who are in great shape, physically attractive, interesting and successful is there a reason to categorically exclude these men? And while most people aren’t as attractive as these, it is certainly possible to meet someone significantly older who is sexy and attractive. Women in their 50’s will often narrowly restrict their dating range because they have a fear of meeting and falling in love with an older man – and then having to deal with his health issues.
To be fair, though, there’s a good chance your style muse is Joan Collins. Men in their 50s may not understand what constitutes a date Saturday night at the Legion with his crown green bowling mates, sitting in the corner sipping half a warm lager, anyone? Men in their 50s know what they like in the bedroom In other words, they are set in their ways. Maybe he had to come back from Thailand as he couldn’t get a permit to open a noodle bar with his ‘girlfriend’. Right up until that moment his 30-year-old daughter rings in the middle of dinner and he has to rush off to change her tyre.
Dating an older woman is quite the rage these days.
As a woman over 35, I’ve never felt more desired by men in their late 20s and early 30s than I do now—moreso even than when I was that age. Pay no attention to the ol’ elbow-jabbing, wink-wink idea that cougars* are “more likely to put out and pay for everything.” Meh, that may be a reason a naïve man attempts to score with an older lady, but it’s hardly the reason a smart man enters a relationship with one.
It is the easiest relationship I have ever been in.
We don’t have petty arguments, and whenever a real problem crops up (there have been two), we discuss it like rational people and get past it together.
