fonesdating com - Dating a 60 year old man

Okay, Evan, I agree mostly with your opinion on younger men/older women. I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman – physically that is, but why would a 28-year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? I can totally understand why older men go for younger women.

There’s no denying that they’re, for the most part, in better shape, with better skin, and less baggage from broken relationships.

Here’s 10 things no one tells you about dating in your 50s. Men in their 50s like to complain They like to moan about the price of coffee in Starbucks, the parking, the traffic, the weather they had to fight through to get to the date…

In my mid-fifties, however, I found myself single again, and remained so until well into my sixties. Anyway, I went out with some of them and found that dating when one’s older brings various challenges.

The first thing I discovered was the chronic shortage of available men. I can understand this – nice firm body, the rejuvenating prospect of starting over again, maybe more kids. In a long marriage you age together; in a weird way your spouse remains that young person you first knew, you hardly notice the wrinkles and the thickening waist. When I meet a man he mirrors back to me my own mortality. For instance, there was the tooth business, or the lack of them.

For one thing, people used to stay married; they weren’t out in the jungle, searching for romance.

Besides, these women just looked so ancient – permed hair, beige cardis.

Time creates wisdom – but it also creates responsibilities and complications – mortgage, kids, career, etc.

All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older. Still, most of them fail miserably, for the exact same reasons that I think Penelope is suggesting.

When he died I fell in love with somebody 15 years younger than I was – a Hungarian artist – and lived with him for seven years.

So I hadn’t really come to grips with my age at all; it had ricocheted up and down, reflecting the person I was with.

But let’s not pretend that we, as a culture, don’t worship at the altar of youth. He’s got the job and the home and the car, and been divorced with a kid already.
