“So I’ve been taking lessons and I’m getting really good.I feel that it’s a new day and anything is possible.” Remember, it’s never too late to learn something new—in fact, it’s what keeps us feeling young.I attempted to find an answer via The Google, seeking the percentage of men in the US who date ten or more years younger; to my surprise, what popped up first were articles on cougar women dating younger men!I had just read a comment by a 50-something-year-old woman who has not been successful at finding a relationship in the Atlanta area.y the age of 50, most people expect that they’ll finally be kicking back a bit and enjoying the fruits of their labors, ideally with someone they plan to grow old and grey with.But whether divorce or widowhood has thrown a wrench in that reverie, or you’ve just never found your special someone, many fifty-somethings do find themselves single—and sometimes a little worried about it.
(This is code for, “I dread clingy girls who abandon their own ships the moment we have sex, and set up camp on my shore.”) Also, the fact that an older woman has her own money means she likely worked hard to get it.

This doesn’t mean she doesn’t want marriage/kids, because she might—but if so, she’ll be pretty clear about it up front.
Should you automatically go dutch or expect her to pay? In fact, you want to impress someone, treat a lady with some bank to a nice meal, because she appreciates exactly how much it costs. So when you take her out with your friends or coworkers, be it to a wedding or work event, you don’t have to worry she’ll perish without your constant attention. Since she’s got a little life on her (and maybe even a marriage in her past), she may not have the rigid checklist that a younger girl has.
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.
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.
