Dating a mature woman
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.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.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.A slightly more mature lady has friends—but she sure as shit doesn’t need their permission to live her life.
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.
It was this that led to my first experience with an older woman.
She’d come to the beach for the weekend for the same reason I had: to get laid and have fun.
She had access to a world I didn’t, and she had done all the things I hadn’t done yet,” he said.
Now he’s in his mid 40s, and married with a kid, and remembers that relationship as critical to making him the man he is now.
