Should You Date Older Men When You Are Over 40?

So should you date older men? First of all, what is the context? It was a question put to me by one of our visitors. My reply began with asking why she was considering dating men who were older than her when she was herself over 40?

Had she found it difficult to find men of her own age? She replied that she had received many more responses to her profile at SeniorPenFriends.com from men in their fifties and sixties than she had from men in their 40s. While she found many of them attractive, at only 43 herself she had some doubts about dating men so much older and it was this that had triggered her question.

My first response was to say that she might find more men of her own age at PenPalsPlanet.com as the term ‘senior’ is used by probably at least half the population to mean someone over 60. While there has been a tendency on the Net for the age boundary of ‘senior’ to be reduced, in some cases as low as 40, I still feel that this is fairly unusual.

My advice was to go to PenPalsPlanet.com and get set up with a profile there, stating in it the specific age group she is looking for. She must include a photo if she were to get men responding to her profile and she should should concentrate on keeping it lighthearted but truthful.

But what about the men in their 50s and 60s who had already contacted her? By all means if she found some of them attractive she should reply, but she should be clear about what she wanted from a dating partner. She would also need to bear in mind that should she get involved with a man 20 years older than her, while there is nothing inherently wrong with that, should the relationship blossom into a life-long thing then she would statistically speaking be bereaved when she is only in her 60s herself. This sounds harsh, but it is best to go into things with your eyes open and to know all the facts. Women generally have longer lives than men in any case, and starting with a man 20 years older would certainly magnify that effect.
