65 year old men dating younger women
You also need to be prepared to think differently about what older men want from a dating relationship.
Many women have been hurt or disappointed by relationships in their lives and are a little afraid to actively participate in looking for love.
When it comes to the subject of love we always hope that there are no real significant barriers to its success.
In our hearts, if not in our heads, we’re convinced that love will always trump practical concerns such as money, social class, race and even gender. And what about age as it relates to older women involved with younger men?
Though men have been enjoying May-December romances forever, women haven’t been afforded the same freedom necessarily.
Culturally, the older woman/younger man dynamic is perceived as an oddity, or a fluke.
According to this Huffington Post article on dating after 50, the ratio of men to women shifts considerably as the years go by: So if you are 60 now, the ratios suggest that it might be difficult to find a good single man your age.
And then there’s also the concern about one’s looks.
After all, more women over 60 are single than ever before, whether that’s due to divorce or widowhood or just never having been married in the first place.
As part of this singleton trend, more women over 60 are looking to meet men in their age group – but dating is different after 60 than it was in our younger years.
One woman, who is married to a man 14 years younger, said the only time she feels threatened by her age is when she looks in the mirror.
But that fear has forced her to come up with her own solution to the issue. ’ Your answer could be, ‘I’m going to get a facelift.’ My answer is, ‘I’m going to be such a beautiful person inside that it’s going to shine through to the outside,'” she told the magazine.
