I'm 45. Last three partners have been 23 30 and 33 and now I have a 29 year old expressing a strong interest.
It's very nice, and I don't have an issue with it per se, I have my own house etc, grown up children and not interested in having more. Not particularly looking for a relationship either. I've been single for three years now so it's not that I'm being seen out and about with young beaus.
I don't dress provocatively, I don't go clubbing or anything like that.. I'm flattered but baffled.
I wish that was the case getthefeck I'm very average, slightly chunky, bit scruffy but I can scrub up ok if I really try hard, which is getting rarer and rarer these days cos it's takes so long. Fat ankles etc..
Kaykay.. that's the thing, they don't seem to. Decent jobs, solvent etc. It's great fun and I'm not complaining but I do find it strange. I'm not especially confident or wise.. I am friendly I suppose but that's it. I've met them all in rl, not via OD or anything like that (I'm far too chicken to try those sites)
This is interesting as I was chatting to a friend the same age as you who says that if she just wants some fun, she finds it pretty easy to go out and pick up young men, in particular. I wonder if it is the "just wanting some fun" that's the key point? A 30-year-old woman is more likely to be looking out for a potential dad for her children than a 45-year-old, after all.
As I've got older I've been pleasantly surprised that younger men have been interested in me. They all say it's the confidence and experience they find attractive. Most men my own age (48) are either married, looking for younger women or a bit odd. Enjoy it!
Probably because younger men have less baggage than older men with ex-wives and kids to consider. I assume that maybe the men in their 20's and early 30's you are encountering have no ties to anybody and can enjoy making the most of opportunities that come their way.
I am not saying that you are desperate and gagging for it or giving of weird signals , far from it, just that it's a natural thing when two consenting adults find themselves enjoying each other's company without huge expectations such as long-term relationships, marriage or kids
I'm your age and have experienced the same thing. Men in their 20's seem to fancy me quite a lot. Do they think I'm an easy lay? I don't know. If by "easy" you mean "doesn't want a bunch of drama, has her own busy life and can keep herself entertained when not with you" is easy, then yeah.
Also, there is nothing stealthy about my boasting. I'm hot and I'm not going to put on false modesty about it. ;)
Nope, I'm definitely not an easy lay, been on my own for three years and not been looking at all. Only slept with 4 men in my whole life.
None of them have been flings, all have turned into relationships of 8, 3 and 2 years respectively.
I don't need a man, I'm happy bumbling along on my own. My life is pretty sorted as it is so I can't be giving off desperation vibes.. I don't know what it is, as I said earlier, I'm not especially good looking, distinctly average in fact. I can't lie.. it is a nice ego boost but I've never ever been out with someone my own age.
He's more of an acquaintance of DS really than a friend but agree with Tilly, the potential for mess might be too big a risk. Pity though cos he's quite attractive.. amazing body cos he has a very physical job
Its finite though, and I'm not up for that as a dead cert! Not that this is about me but i have similar experiences - I don't even meet available men my age: as scarlet says, they're all/mostly 'taken'. Yy some young men may not want children but the majority do. That boat has sailed for me.
