Older woman, younger man — somehow deemed socially unacceptable.
Yes, the sex is great, and the six-pack abs are nice, but what I also get out of my approach to dating is meeting men I admire and respect.
As a result, my so-called casual relationships go on a lot longer than most people’s so-called committed ones.
I date younger men off and on over periods of 2, 3, 4, 5 — or even 15 years.
In fact, because I don’t give a damn what anybody thinks and because I think I look great naked, I’m secure enough to focus instead on making my partners feel good about themselves. I remember one man I dated — 20 years old, gorgeous, body of a Greek god — sitting on the side of the bed one morning as I complimented him, saying to me shyly, “You make me feel really sexy.” People looking for love could benefit from operating on my principles of approach to sexual relationships.
“Nice person” isn’t always the most important thing on people’s soul-mate checklists — but it should be.
