Really depend on the person I think. Most of the younger women I would date don't care about their appearance, No make-up, running shoes, not time spent on hair, sweat pants and a hoodie. Personally I find that soo much more attractive than then blind following of magazine trends I find here. Older women really can't pull that off anymore.

Why do a lot of young men get sexually attracted to older women I mean 40 to 50- don't sugar-coat it, I want honest answers I have a few theories:

1. They have low self-esteem so they think that an older woman won't reject them
2. They think older women are less likely to place demands on them- for money, commitment, babies
3. They have a mother complex
4. They grew up with older people so they relate to that era.
5. They find older women are more sexually confident
6. The woman is just very attractive (Demi Moore?)
7. They find older women more intellectually interesting
8. Older women are more open, more relaxed, nothing phases them
9. They think they are less likely to get an STD
10, Older women can give them more time/attention -as she has fewer demands such as working, studying, looking after kids
I find older women attractive because they generally tell you straight up what they're about. No games. Also, an older woman is generally speaking more knowledgable and won't be ordering a Hello Kitty ice cream sandwich when you take her to a fancy place. Another aspect are the physical traits. An older woman will look like a woman with curves, bells and whistles and whatever else they come with. Young girls also tend to value their options all the time whilst being unaware of where they fit in.

Re: Meeting New Friends and Dating

dating all depends on what it is you are really looking for. if you are looking to get laid you go to bars, if you are looking for something a little more than a one night stand it may take a little more of an effort.

according not only to my friend who has lived and tried dating here for 10 years, but this blog also seems to support, that the women here arent exactly interested in what you like per say and that dating can be like being run over by a bulldozer. some women are more interested in what you do and if you will be able to take care of them or not. i appologize to any women who may be offended by this, this is merely what i have learned from active ex-pat daters.

i think if you stick with networking at work and through friends, attending social events, doing things you like to do (perhaps golf, kayak, running groups, etc.) and avoiding scummy websites, then if you are confident enough to talk to a woman you are interested in, thats when you will start dating....

good luck!

Re: Meeting New Friends and Dating

Not on the scene (married many years) but yes.. I do agree with hoppy's message.
There seems to be a change in dynamics that happens in a woman's early 40s regardless if they are single or not. Suddenly they start receiving compliments or attention from men in their 30s. I found that quite surprising really, it can take you aback.
Makes you wonder if you're make-up is not running or if you're having a bad hair day

Re: Meeting New Friends and Dating

IMHO, dating / relation is all about harmony between both parties, you never know till you try, some people get along together and some don't....there's no logical formulas about dating nor age, location or whatever other factors matter that much, once there's harmony, everything else is just marginal.

I don't really know what dating is all about, with me it was meet someone while studying, start talking, kiss, go to bed, move in, get married. So, what is dating?

It's when you've done all that and then start the next lap again.
