Connecting and speaking the same soulful “language” as someone is a rarity that must be treasured when found.
Older women have had time to think of what they want in life.
They have had enough time to come to terms and accept who they are, and what they want in life.
They have also experienced enough to know what they can or cannot provide, and may find it unnecessary to “compete” with other females.
Being an “airhead” and not contributing or being of mindful benefit is not sexy. Knowing what is important in life is very attractive.
Planning ahead, taking one’s job or career seriously, not going into work hungover, not blowing a paycheque on silly things, and not focusing on all the small, irrelevant details in life is hugely understated in life.
I responded, “Um, I think I’m a bit older than you think I am.” I smiled at him sweetly. Older women know what they are and what they aren’t.
Finding someone you can open up to without judgement and feel supported by is an extremely important aspect of any relationship.
I noticed a handsome young guy walked toward me, and I could tell he had just gotten off work. Nothing he does annoys me, and believe me, I have quite a few pet peeves. Could I be a cougar if I unintentionally picked him up? Would his family think he was crazy for dating an older woman?
His clothes were dirty and he carried a large lunch box with him. After our first few dates, I was at the point where I wondered if our relationship could be sustained. Would anyone I know think less of me for wanting to date him?
The only time age became a problem is when he mentioned that he might be to old to have kids. We are taking it slow, but why should we be scared or embarrassed about age-gaps if he genuinely makes me happy.
I know you might think it is a bit quick to judge, after just one date, maybe it is, but it doesn't change the fact that I haven't been able to stop smiling since.
