Dating old men

I’m not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn’t been fulfilling for me.I started my media career at age 9 at a community TV station and my ambition level went up from there.

I save and invest my money; I’ve never been married and I have no kids. My father was a businessman who ran a successful chiropractor practice.

I had a normal childhood, but I have been living in the “adult world” since I was a kid. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way.

George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.

In their defense, I hardly grew up dating or crushing on men close to my age group.

I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.

We worked in the same profession, had similar interests, and shared common philosophical views. So what if he was wrinkly, in all the places you might expect? There was zero jealousy on both sides, and I never saw him check out another woman -- due to him being satisfied, of course, but also him being well-seasoned in how to respect the opposite sex. Another lesson in dating: a fling with someone in your professional/personal circle is more often than not bad news. I have a friend who’s been married to someone for more than a decade who is 20 years older than her.

I grew up the only child of older parents (who are also 10 years apart), and often felt like an awkward old lady trapped inside a teeny-bopper’s body. I admit, I wasn’t as physically attracted to him as I had been to other partners. Have you ever seen a girl with a hideous boyfriend and thought, “Seriously, how the f$*k did he pull that off? Either he's just a nice friggin’ dude; or being with him boosts her self-confidence. In my case, the age gap was actually a cavernous black hole defying space and time. He’s old and sick now, and she takes care of him (even financially), but she’s still partying and sleeping around. I sometimes imagine what would have happened if I had stayed with my older man.
