Middle aged women dating older men
Just like how you’ve dated your share of challenging types of men like the Pinger, the Couch Potato and the older-and-balder-than-his-profile-guy…men also meet and enter into relationships with less-than-impressive types of women.I’ve talked to countless single men over the years about their experiences with women, especially those in their 40s, 50s and beyond. People ask me all the time whether I offer dating and relationship coaching for single men. So I thought I’d tell you about the experience men have when they’re trying to “date like a grownup.” If you’ve read my e Book, 7 Secrets to Finally Finding Love after 40, you know that I believe strongly that empathizing with men is absolutely essential to your dating and relationship success. Just like women, the men you’re dating have lived and learned.Like, "This Cuban-Chinese restaurant is half-Latino, just like the late Emilio Estevez." Or, "I just put a dollar’s worth of O-Town songs in the jukebox.Who knew this bar would have a dollar’s worth of O-Town songs?
Some of us limit our potential partners to a very specific age range because that’s what we think we’ll be attracted to.

I’ll be investigating this phenomenon today, with gusto and charts.
It’s no secret that dating changes radically as you get older.
As you can see below, the number of online daters peaks at 24, drops sharply at around 30, and then gradually tapers off, as the remaining singletons either find mates or withdraw themselves from contention: The bar chart here shows how the woman to man ratio changes over time. In a better world, this would imply that older people don’t necessarily have a harder time finding decent mates than younger ones, as the composition of the dating pool holds relatively steady from age to age.
