They claim that it is because of women like me, who perpetuate this ugly reality, that older women cannot find men. All the young, drop-dead gorgeous women accompanying older men were not dragged there by force; I can assure you.
So when a beautiful woman in her 20s or 30s meets a man who is in his 50s and has the world in the palm of his hand, that is sexy and alluring to her.
What counts is that they are sitting across from a woman who is beautiful, intelligent and alive.
She won't complain about her ex; she won't moan about how tired she is because she was doing housework all day with three whining children, and then had to prepare dinner and take the dog to the vet. This woman is out to have a good time and then come home and have wild and passionate sex on the kitchen counter or the bathroom floor. And before some of you tell me about your strong sex drive after 40, consider this: Her 25-year-young spirit comes in a shape of a 25-year-young, coin-bounce-off-ass body. But hiding your head in the sand and insisting that "real men" don't want younger women, they want an equal is naïve at best and detrimental to your own love life at worst.
So when the comparison is down-to-the-minute detail: She wins. When a man is successful and wealthy, he wants a young vibrant woman whom he can enjoy in bed and high society alike.
And another thing: No matter how old the man is, he still wants to go out with a younger woman.
The woman I lived with in 1965 died in 2006 at the age of 96 years young.
Don't blow it by trying to be "hip" like the guys her age.
You'll just look like an idiot with your too-big pants and your hat on backwards.
In our interview, I asked Lisa this question directly and she gave me a simple answer.
Single men in their 60s are looking for a woman who is feminine and is willing to help them feel like a man.
