Advice On Dating Younger Men?

I’m in my late 40s, and recently divorced. I have no children.I’m in my late 30s, and recently divorced. I have no children.

I’ve recently hit the dating scene again, and I’ve found that it is nearly impossible for me to be attracted to men around my age. I find men who are 5 to 10 years younger much more attractive, more interesting, and more fun to be with. Men around my age have no energy, just want to “settle down” and drink beer, or are just plain boring. I try to use a cougars dating site cougarconnecting.com from a friend of mine who come highly recommended. I upload a photo on the site. I got tons of responses from younger guys on there.

People often get shocked when I tell them my real age. I’ve already been out with a couple of men in their late 20s. Sometimes I think they get turned off by the age difference. Any advice on dating younger men, and how to hold on to them.  After having been married for 20 years, I’m a bit rusty when it comes to dating. Also, what’s the best thing to wear to attract them.  Please no “you shouldn’t be dating younger men!” answers, I hear this all the time and it makes no sense to me. Thanks.

If the age difference scares them away they should have never been on the dating site in the first place. You shouldn't need to wear anything in particular. If that is really you in the picture you should have no problem picking up a younger man.

I am in agreement with MsRoblynn. I am 44 and I am dating a man who is 12 years younger and I fit much better in his world than him fitting mine. Luckily for me, I enjoy his world much better than mine since in mine everyone is married with kids or divorced with kids. I am divorced with no children and I still like to have fun like a 27 year old.<br />

As far as trying to hold on to a younger man, don't try holding on to anyone. If a younger man falls for you, there will be no need to "hold on" to him for he won't want to let go of you. Just be yourself...you will find the one that will want you for you and who you are.

Can I date you?

The one thing that I have found about dating a younger man, is that it is much easier to fit in to his life then it is to try to bring him in to your's. As you have no children, you can fit into his lifestyle and friends very easy.<br />

I know this because I have been dating a man about 13 years younger and I find it very easy to fit in with his 20ish and 30ish yr old friends and feel at ease. Where I can sense that he is some what uncomfortable with the 40-50 yr old group on my side. To the people in my age range he is my boy toy.<br />
But to his friends, I am his girl friend and that works very well for me.
