Those Hollywood actors who have options almost always choose young women.And unfortunately, if they’re leaving their wife, it’s almost always for a younger woman.Before I get attacked as somehow being sexist…look at the anecdotal evidence.On average, men in all societies date younger women.So I find it hilarious when I see women hate on older men for chasing younger girls when often find older men sexy. It’s easy to critique others for their desires but when we look at ourselves, we suddenly get a free pass. And so many women are fed up dealing with “immature boys” and prefer to date older guys. Did you consciously choose to like those qualities throughout your life? That’s why I think calling someone shallow for their physical preferences is ignorant.Those guys tend to earn better wages and therefore be better providers. They’re more cultured and have more world experience. And thinking young women are sexy falls into that category — you have nothing to be ashamed of. This formula has somehow become the definitive rule for the youngest age of a woman a man can date. So much so, that they don’t go after women they’re actually interested in. This taboo makes some of my clients feel shameful about their age preferences.
So here I was, 28 years old, and I had had 2 boyfriends and been on dates with a handful of others. was ever going to be in the cards for me as it seemed like it was working out for everyone else except me. Long story short, we began talking, hanging out, dating, dating exclusively, and after a pretty significant period of time, he asked me to be his girlfriend. My palms were sweating the entire time I was packing, but at the end of the weekend I kept thinking “these people are way too freaking cool”. His mom didn’t look a day over 45 (she was 60) and was super warm and welcoming. My parents had retired to Las Vegas a year or so earlier and were expected to come home for our annual Christmas Eve celebration. This only made me feel worse and as the holidays grew to a close, I felt incredibly depressed despite a pleasant experience at my Aunt’s. They think it’s creepy and even put them the same category as pedophiles. But many people in society still look down upon older men dating younger girls.My dad is tremendously funny and a phenomenal story teller. I wore the same pair of vans tennis shoes to school for 5 years straight, had long un-brushed hair, and wore oversized sweatshirts and jean shorts to school. Because I wasn’t popular and because I was picky, I didn’t go on a single date until I was almost 20 years old. I thought it best to not deal with this all in real time in hopes that my Dad would come to his senses.I think I always had a high bar when it came to dating because my dad really had it all; he was tall, dark, and handsome, educated, successful, ethical, funny, athletic, and handy. He was a tall, blonde, surfer that ended up moving to San Diego for college and that was the end of that. My aunt, however, told me both Aaron and I were welcome over for Christmas so I jumped at the opportunity.
