What Is It About The Older Man?I have always loved older men.
Even in childhood, the crushes I had were not on the boys in my class, oh no, I got crushes on my teachers!
Some might say that older men are more knowledgable and know their way around a woman's body. Some might say older men have been around the block a few times and are more willing in their autumn years to want to settle down. Some might say that older men have had better upbringings with old fashioned values and are far more polite and respectful than their youthful counterparts.
All of these factors would make a good argument for an affinity towards the older man.
However, in my case... I think it's just a comfort thing.
I recently learnt that we can sexualise things that give us comfort in our childhood. For example, having lots of people in your family with blonde hair can make blondes a preference when seeking a partner. I think that's what's happened in my case.
It's a common theme in my family, on my father's side, for the men to have a child after the age of 40, making them older than the average father. My father was older when I was born. I also have a much older brother. However, to compound the issue, on my mothers side I am the 29th grandchild of 30 (Yes, 30! My grandparents had 10 children). Which means, my whole life has been spent around people older than I am. I have cousins now in their 60s, whilst I am yet to hit 40.
I am comfortable around older people and I suppose during my turbulent teens I probably sexualised this.
No real surprize then that I married a man who is older than I am.
All the musicians (got a thing for musos too) that I look up to so much are older: Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Eric Clapton...
The one I really lust after and seriously want to get down the pants of (see my other stories) Robert Plant... is much older than I.
I just find older men attractive. I like their way, I like their salt n' pepper hair, men just age so well damn them!
I only ever dated one guy younger than me (by one year) - drove me crazy! Mind you, we were 18 and 19 it hardly counts!
Of course, with my own advancing age, as pointed out to me by my teenaged daughter, frequently, my prospects are becoming fewer. Soon, an "older man" when compared to me will need a zimmer fr
