Also, with most of the online dating sites having apps, just chatting on the apps works great too.
Yet here he is, willing to skip out on younger, toned bodies because he thinks we're cool, calm and low maintenance even with wrinkles around our eyes. More recently, I bumped into this gorgeous late 30s or early 40s young man who was a cross between Hugh Laurie and George Clooney. You may find that a man closer to your age is a better fit as someone you want to share your life with.
But that doesn't mean you can't have fun trying the cougar thing for a change.
Yes, I'd dated men three to five years younger but it felt like men 10 to 20 years younger were living on a different planet.
I must admit the latter, known as Cougar Dating, was a little hard for me to wrap my head around even as a Dating Coach.
I'll be the first to admit it feels fantastic when a younger man asks you out. As great as it is for the ego, a younger man is in a totally different stage of his life.
He's probably surrounded by young women with their smooth complexions and youthful glow on a daily basis. He might be just getting his career going or have minor children at home from a previous marriage. All of those shared experiences Baby Boomers have in our collective memories happened when he was too young to remember -- or wasn't even born yet!I shared one of those funny Facebook photos recently that said, "Madonna is 55, her boyfriend is 22. I had to laugh at the high maintenance comment I heard time and time again from these young men. Back when I was in my 40s, younger men would write me online all the time and I'd always say, "Are you looking for a mom? " They just felt younger women were too high maintenance for them and had far too much drama in their lives.You can give a general idea about where you work and what you do, but don’t be specific about which office building you’re in. It really depends how comfortable you are with the idea of a stranger having your number (and yes they are a stranger).Give a general idea about your hangouts, but not details such as “every Tuesday I take a spinning class at X gym on X street”. I personally do not give my number out anymore unless there has been a first date and there is a potential for a second date. Believe it or not, lots of men want to date us -- older men, men our age and even younger men are trying to catch our eye.
