Men and women of a certain age.....

Women of “a certain age” are at a disadvantage when circling the dating pool of available men.

Men our age aren’t interested in us old ladies; they want a piece of young arm candy to prove their virility isn’t compromised.

Older men—meaning older than we are—are looking for a nurse to give them their pills on time and call 911.

Younger men shy away from the wrinkled skin and believe the myth that older women aren’t interested in sex or fun.

So, essentially that leaves us… one.

Those men our age DO have virility issues, and we all know it. I'm not saying those issues are a deal breaker (that's REALLY close to a pun, but I'll leave it alone), but it's like trying to keep Santa a secret after a certain age. Everyone knows the truth and ignoring it is just too much trouble, especially when there is still fun to be had.

Being 60+ today doesn’t mean retired from life; it means living life on our own terms with our work and our play, and many women would love a partner to share it with, blue pills and all.

The older group, well, they need to hire the help they need. It isn’t me.

As for younger men: If they only knew!

I've always been attracted to women who are assertive and have confidence - qualities older women possess. They've been on the Earth a little longer. They're more seasoned. They don't play games. They know what they want,

and they're not afraid to tell you.
