4. There's no "ticking." Once you move into your 50s, you are usually beyond the child-bearing phase. The female biological clock has stopped that super loud ticking that you may have heard in your late 30s and into your early 40s. This can be a huge relief to some young men who don't want to get tied down by younger women who want to start a family.
These men are open to relationships, they just don't want that long-term commitment and family responsibility. So you offer him a great opportunity for companionship and romance without the pressure of wanting to get married.

5. You're realistic. At 50, you are savvy about how the world works. That means you know that dating a younger man may be a heck of a lot of fun, but also might not lead to anything deeper or more serious. That is fine by you. You don't mind a little romantic distraction and feel flattered and enlivened by a younger man's attention. Yet, you recognize that your relationship is not as likely to last long-term.
The good news about this fact is that you can relax, go with the flow and just enjoy it. And when the interaction with your younger man stops being fun, you are more likely to simply let go and move on. Being savvy to the ways of men and how life works keeps you on an even keel and realistic about what you are doing. That freedom can open doors for you to have more excitement and fun than you ever imagined possible with younger men.
