On dating a younger man
In my experience, men tend to be praised for being on the older end of a May/December romance.
As the put it, “It’s a time-honoured tradition in Hollywood for older men to date younger women.” Recently, Sean Penn, Mel Gibson, and Robin Thicke have made headlines for their younger female partners, but back in the day, Old Hollywood couples boasted major age gaps, too: Think Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow, with 25 and 30 years between them, respectively.
Still, as Stewart told Williams, the experience was plenty fun.
Stewart’s visible glow proved that she was hardly concerned with the taboo often bestowed on May-December romances.
He told me he had noticed me in our building before, but we had never had a chance to meet until now. Did all 30-year-old women want to date younger men? So what is it about an older woman that a younger man would find attractive enough to make his life partner?
He told me his name, we talked for a bit, I enjoyed his humour and was completely surprised when he asked for my phone number. Amidst all the thoughts running through my head since the moment we met, one thing was for certain. at times, being in a relationship with a younger man comes with its own set of challenges versus a relationship of similar age. Surprisingly, it may not be what you think: Having been alive longer than a younger man, older women have experienced, learned and grown from life’s trials.
Visiting this week, the 75-year-old businesswoman confessed she’s found the perfect recipe to a happy personal life—and it’s not what you’d think.
Recently dipping her toe back in the dating pool, Stewart has found herself enjoying the company of younger men. According to the stunning septuagenarian, a previous dating incident with a man in his 30s convinced her she needed an age cap.
When it comes to good living, is there anyone more adept than Martha Stewart?
By 2009, caught on and wrote a trend piece on these so-called “cougars”.
I’ll admit that I’ve sometimes wondered if I’ve just trapped an unsuspecting boy in my web because my age makes me wiser and wilier.
My friends and family have always gotten giddy when I’ve told them about a new love interest. And when I tell them about my current boyfriend, and the saucy, yet sweet, tale of how our holidays in Portugal collided and a transatlantic relationship ensued, they practically swoon. Sometimes, they do this weird winking affirmation thing, but it’s always something. By now, I’ve learned that this is both unfair and sexist.
But there’s one part of our origin story that I always save for last.“So, he has this great job in marketing, and we both have a degree in journalism, and he’s well-travelled, and – oh yeah – he’s 24,” I say. If my boyfriend were just a couple of years younger, or even significantly , than I am, the “age thing” (as I call it) wouldn’t even be a thing. The 43-year-old supermodel recently received flak for dating a man 13 years her junior. I was skeptical, but he took a step forward, told me I was beautiful, and asked me on a date. Unlike any guy I have ever dated, I cannot think of any reason to break up with him.
