Hmmm... Older Men???

by - Thursday, March 29, 2007

Okay, so this post has absolutely nuthin' to do with stamping, hockey or any of the other things that I normally talk about... it is about older men... do I? Don't I? How old is too old? Anyone - feel free to chime in here... leave a comment, send me an e-mail... it is just that I think that I may be interested in someone older... and I don't know... partially since I really haven't dated for years - and even when you are a university student you don't really date - you hook up - so I don't even know the signs to look for... like when is someone interested... when is someone just a friend... so really this isn't all to do with older men... it has to do with men in general.

But, just as I say that I think that there are some definite bonuses to the older guy right now (and this is weird for me to say - when my mom started dating an older guy I pretty much told her that it was the most disgusting thing in the world - when really John is the best thing for my mom...). I mean - who wouldn't go for Sean Connery - you would have to be daft not to think that man was sexy!! Here is what I have come up with so far:

  1. Older men are {hopefully} more established - in their career, their life, etc.
  2. I don't want kids... some older men may feel the same as me - others will have already had their kids and don't want any more - which would suit me fine.
  3. Older men {hopefully} know what they want - if I know what I want then it is only fair that they know what they want from a relationship.
  4. I have similar interests with 'older' (or should I say mature) people - male and female.
  5. I am not a bar star, I don't go out drinking all night long. To me, a great night out would be going out for dinner and then retiring to watch a good movie... or throw in a hockey game!!

Here are some articles that I have read that have to do with dating older men...

I guess I have to realize that I am no longer a spring chicken myself... I say that with a laugh as I am approaching 30 in just over a month. I don't mean that I am getting OLD... it just means that I am pretty sure that I know what I want now and I am not really willing to settle for any less. So if that guy is twenty years older than me, and I find him attractive - then why not? I have taken surveys of some of my friends with older significant others - ranging in differences from thirteen years and up - and most say that they wouldn't have it any other way.

"Dating should be less about matching outward circumstances
than meeting your inner necessity."

Hmmm... in all of that writing did I come up with any solutions? Nope... but it did make me think a little more... damn thinking!!

  1. Well, you know my take on older guys. I likes them. Okay, I like mine. I'm not really supposed to like other men any longer. Let alone go on dates...

    But yeah. Cool beans.

  2. First - go cougars go - I didn't love them like you but I remember the mornings all your crazies slept outside or at least waited a LONG time to get a ticket for a game! I hope they go all the way!

    Older men - I agree that there are advantages - he should have more experience, know what he wants in life, have achieved some success, and you will always look younger.

    Love is love... we should take what we can get and enjoy the ride while it lasts, regardless of the taboos in society.

    All that said, me and Andy are nearly the same age, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm lucky that I put in the time and stalked his ass in university. BTW, thank you for all those nights you two-stepped with me, while the regulars gawked, and I mirrorly hoped that a glance of his would come our way. Boy that brings back memories for me - man you could dance. I always wished that I could dance highland like you.
