If it’s true that women mature faster than men, I’ve never understood why sensible, intelligent females go for the equivalent of the grey gorilla…i.e. older men. They smell and are hairy! OK, I get why a male mid life crisis involves a sports car, a blonde with pneumatic breats and botox. Mid life crisis women are a bit more selective…a blonde, with pecs…sports car is optional!
Personally, I’ve always preferred men younger than me. Why? Well apart from the obvious – I’m in my sexual prime, men my age are in decline – younger men are more fun. They don’t have baggage. Not an ex-wife or step-child in sight. They have no sexual inhibitions. And actually, they are really grateful if you sleep with them – they know you aren’t going to have that ‘how was it for you’ or that ‘what are you thinking’ conversation. What they don’t realise is that you don’t care – you’ve had sex, and now you just want to get home and sleep in your own bed!
Besides, older men (in the UK anyway) imagine that you, as a single, professional, female must be so desperate for attention (wrong – on so many levels!) that you are grateful if they pay you a compliment. Oh hallo! If it was a choice between poking my eyes out or being poked by you, I’d rather be blind!
So, there you have it. Men without their own hair and teeth need not apply!
