Ten Reasons To Date An Older Man

Age as an obstacle in the ongoing search for social companionship hurts everyone.
1

Financially Stable

The $10.00 date was buried a long time ago.
2

Good Manners

Opening a door and pulling out a chair for your date is the right thing to do.
3

Mature

A quiet confidence in your ability to relate to your date and in turn to be a good listener too.
4

Sophisticated

Use your years of experience to create new and exciting venues for your date.
5

Punctual

Being on time displays trust and dependability.
6

Good Conversationalist

Years of experience should create a story list able to entertain a date for several hours at a time.
7

Very Patient

Maintaining self control when the date veers off course is very important. Men never get a second chance to make a first impression.
8

Good Teacher

As a good listener an older gentleman may offer suggestions and ideas to his date based upon her conversation under the heading "Been There; Done That".
9

Relationships Are More Important Than Sex

The time for conquest and sowing your wild oats has already come and gone. Physical intimacy lies at the top of the pyramid. If it happens; it happens. If not; no big deal.
10

Too Good A Friend To Be Forgotten Or Easily Replaced

A date should be a memorable experience for both parties. If neither party falls victim to a case of nerves cherished memories may be created to always be remembered.

This list makes me laugh... amusing to say the least...Most of the things you mentioned are simply regular courtesy.. nothing to do with age... roll eyes

how about a mention of Sex?? Fun?? and a few other real life stuff...

Hello, I absolutely agree, an older man [provided he isnot stuck in his ways, cranky and old in his thinking ] in other words if he is young at heart, you cant beat it ! manners, old fashioned values, all the things you wrote, I agree, theyre very attractive in a man. Age isnt as important as maturity, respect true friendship and hopefully chemistry .

I hate to say it but as the saying goes ....There's no fool like an old fool grin Say no more!wine

Relationships are more important than sex...
Oh how I wish I could hear a younger man say that. They open their pants & their brains fall out.
brookeeboo
that is just messed up! find someone your own age
he is old enough to be my grandpa!!!!
SidneyWells
Yes,i agree,age is not a number,but how long will it remain like that?when the man is 8O and your 30,how long will it be before you start having sex with an old piece of shit?he will be enjoying sex because he is having it with a younger girl,and what about you?
Open your eyes.
There is no need of money without happiness,have been there have done that and am past that!

Hm. Personally speaking, I still seem to be able to afford it.

Opening a door and pulling out a chair for your date is the right thing to do.
And watch her whump on the floor, buttocks first. A nice, humorous ice-breaker to start the tet-de-tet.

A quiet confidence in your ability to relate to your date and in turn to be a good listener too.
Hm. Personally speaking, my maturity comes across in my loud, arrogant behaviour and my bossiness. A fifteen-year-old kid wouldn’t be able to do this sort of thing so elegantly.

Being on time displays trust and dependability.
Right, Right!! If you can’t trust your Depends, whom can you? You’d also be late for dates.

Years of experience should create a story list able to entertain a date for several hours at a time.
The suggestion has been made to be wary of time, and ask your date at the beginning what time she wants you to wake her up so she won’t miss the last train home.

Men never get a second chance to make a first impression.
While I agree with your statements, this one smacks of sexism. EVERYBODY, women, children and true hermaphrodites, also never get a second chance at that.

An older gentleman may offer suggestions and ideas to his date based upon her conversation.
Especially so when the older gentleman has retired from a career of data base analysis.

Physical intimacy lies at the top of the pyramid.
A rather uncomfortably intimacy, since pyramids invariably have a pointy top. I’d rather lie about my income or height.

Too Good A Friend To Be Forgotten Or Easily Replaced
At least to the end of the coffee date. After that... no guarantees.



Old chap, I am older than you, so please don’t take offence at my arrogance... it’s too bad everyone else does.

To your critics... you never said it's good for YOUNG women to date an old fogie... could be anybody, even an old wizened woman. Intimacy is after all at the top of the iceberg... whatever. No need to get defensive, you did not advocate only young women should adhere to your wisdom... anyone could. I don't know why that was never noticed by anyone.

I WOULD BEG TO DIFFER.THE OLDER MAN NEEDS HIS SLEEP,THE YOUNG GIRL WANTS CLUBBING LATE NITES ECT WHAT WILL THEY TALK ABOUT HE ABOUT HIS WORK OR GOLF SHE ABOUT HER NAILS AND FREINDS I CAN MENTION A LOT MORE, THEY HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON,AND I THINK IT IS JUST A SMOKE SCREEN OLDER MEN DO NOT NEED AWIVES OR FRIENDS THEY WANT A MISTRESS TRYING TO GET AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AS THE CLOCK TICKS BY,MY HUMBLE OPINION, AN OLDER WOMENS OBSERVATION

Younger guys are really dogs; and younger women are more naive than ever.

Even though we have the highest STD rate according the National Institute of Health; than any other first world country in history, you have all these young girls allowing guys to have unprotected sex with them having kids and getting STD's that they don't even know they have.

The U.S. male matures much slower; the women too; than in other countries.

Good young men are super hard to find and good men are hard to find in general.

So are good women. It's cool to be the sleazy girl gone wild type in todays U.S. but to be honest it's pretty pathetic.
mjames
not all the time it's true; all older men are not good guys. They just want a younger girl for the sex.

Younger women many times want the money.

Again, young guys in the u.s. are scumbags for the most part but there are bad older guys too.

Women just need to look at the actions of a guy and not the words.

I think is nice to enjoy my youth with someone who is experiencing almost what i do, about economic stabilities i believe there's a millonier who is born today, is something that we can all work to do
Kimothy
i think these things describe some older men but not nearly all older men. i think there are younger men/women who possess these qualities as well. the likely hood of finding them in a younger man is not so probable tho.
ninalaurenco
yes these is so true..i like dateing old peopls for real...they are very good and honest then the young once...

How about the #1 reason:

If dating older men is something you find enjoyable, simply go for it and never mind those against it.

If you're against it, simply don't do it.

100 reasons? You haven't even given 1.
I've known couples with age gaps of 10 - 20 years. And, guess what? They're doing fine!!
soundartist
I completely agree and totally disagree.
I could but I wouldn't come with at least 10, if not a 100 reasons why young women shouldn't date older men. I'm sure you could do that as well.
Stevia
Yes I agree, the same goes for us older gals
