Should you choose to focus on younger men, here are five reasons why males in their 30s want to date hot, 50-something women like you:
1. With age comes confidence. By the time you reach 50, you know yourself pretty well. That means you have more self-confidence which is very attractive to all men. A confident woman isn't clingy, needy or desperate. She has her own life and is more likely to not need as much attention from a man — cougars are attractive for this very reason. You are just easier to spend time with and a lot less demanding than younger women.
2. Older women are looking younger than ever. You look younger and hotter than ever. Have you been to a class reunion lately? The women look fantastic. Women are taking better care of themselves and doing more to stay young looking. And compared to men, women have so much more to rely on with good skin care, exercise, the right clothing, hair and makeup and maybe a little Botox. All this gives you a younger appearance than ever and certainly younger than previous generations at the same age. Some experts are claiming 50 is the new 30 – imagine that!
3. You have experience under your belt. Now that you have entered your fifth decade, you have plenty of experience under your belt. Younger men find this exciting and are often seeking to learn more about how to please a woman in the bedroom. This can be a lot of fun as you show him what women like and educate him for younger generations. What a great service you are doing for womankind!
