If the woman offers to call you first, know that she is not afraid of making the first move and doesn’t conform to the traditional old ways. And ask yourself if you want to be with someone who has totally misrepresented herself.
They say age is nothing but a number but when it comes to dating, the older woman certainly faces the challenge of being branded a cougar if she dares date someone younger.
But for one 51-year-old singleton, she desperately wants to turn the 'predatory, sly and creepy' label on its head for a more empowering term - a WHIP.
But, at least then the numbers will be in our favor – or at least even. Please take a look at the questions below and add your thoughts in the comments section below.
Is it appropriate for a woman in her 60s to date a man 10 or even 20 years younger than her?
When you make the initial contact if it is just for casual sex that you are interested in please be upfront about it to save time on both sides.
If you are straight forward it allows both of you to begin with the same expectations of sex. But, after talking with dating coaches David Wygant and Lisa Copeland, it occurs to me that women our age may be just as biased against older men as they seem to be against us.After all, most men over 60 don’t look like George Clooney, just like most of us don’t look like Jane Seymour.Is it really realistic to believe that we will find a 65-year old man that dresses well, is financially independent and who loves spending time at the gym?If we really want these things, maybe it’s time for us to take a page from their book and turn the dial on our dating profile back a decade.For example, according to this Huff Post article, at ages 50-54, there are about equal numbers of single men and women.
