Today.com dedicated a piece to the expressed reasons younger men love older women. Couples in age gap relationships are subject to prejudice and negative stereotypes, especially when the man is older than the woman. Karen, a 69-year-old in New York City who asked to be identified by only her first name to protect her privacy, told me that sex is great at her age.

The only way she can seem to find a date is through an app, but even then, McNeil told me, dating online later in life, and as a black woman, has been terrible.
I got my life back together and moved on. I have been divorced for about 5 years and it was an ugly one. Custody battle, asset division, debt allocation, none of it was easy. Our relationship is just now becoming less toxic.

I’ve reviewed a lot of dating books on Hack Spirit and a new one just came to my attention. The Devotion System by Amy North is a welcome addition to the online world of relationship advice.

Your fun-loving 35-year old husband might suddenly decide he is tired of the bars and big crowds, even though you are only 25 and still have lots of fun with your friends on the weekend. So rather than try to brush your age difference under the rug and forget about it, take the time to acknowledge what this age gap will mean for you at certain stages of your lives. Men and women get married at much younger ages in Eastern cultures, and it’s important to remember that these are guidelines, and not hard and fast rules for anyone.
How well does the rule reflect scientific evidence for age preferences?
But…he’s single on the profile and loves parasailing like he saw Obama do when he left office! Or…he’s the nice guy that tried, but really, he’s the IHeartBreaker shy that makes no sudden moves to be cool, so she freaks out.

He’s great in many aspects and I try to tell him on a regular basis what I like about him and that I appreciate him for what he is. I think as I’ve gotten older, I’m less afraid of expressing my true feelings to a guy. If he can’t handle it at 55yo then he’s not the one for me.
Believing one can be a girl’s hero can be a fairytale in itself, or at least a thankless job. Reading online profiles of women I see this written a lot…. “No liars” or “No cheaters.” I find bitterness in these statements and they bother me. I understand a lot of women have been through some tough things but I feel we can all safely assume that no one wants a liar or a cheater. On the flip side of that I guess if I read a profile that says you do want a liar or you do want a cheater, though I am neither of those things I will probably message you for purely scientific reasons.
