I asked my friends who have dated younger guys some of the lessons they wish they could bestow upon others.Turns out, many of the things they said could actually double as advice for the way you should behave with women of any age.Conjure up a fantasy woman in your mind; she's probably no older than 30.But if you're excluding older women from your dating pool, you might be missing out.PACE YOURSELF"I recently had a younger guy ask me if I was saving myself for marriage when I tried to ward off his wandering hands.If I had been, I would have gotten married years ago." —Amy3. Also, you will have more to talk about because she's actually pursuing her own hobbies. Sometimes dating older women is a learning experience.
As a woman over 35, I’ve never felt more desired by men in their late 20s and early 30s than I do now—moreso even than when I was that age. Pay no attention to the ol’ elbow-jabbing, wink-wink idea that cougars* are “more likely to put out and pay for everything.” Meh, that may be a reason a naïve man attempts to score with an older lady, but it’s hardly the reason a smart man enters a relationship with one.
Sorry if that offends all you 22-year-olds out there, but you’ve got a ways to go before you’re as interesting as you think you are.
This one’s not on Franklin’s list — what with women not even close to having the right to vote in the mid-1700s — but we live in somewhat more enlightened times.
In 1745, the great Benjamin Franklin wrote a letter to his buddy Cadwallader Colden offering advice to “diminish the violent natural inclinations,” which frankly sounds a little sinister.
Well, I don’t know what kind of shit Cadwallader was into, but old Ben recommended marriage as a remedy for these urges, arguing that man and woman together make a complete being, and that a married man is more content and likely to succeed.
