Love Story

In Praise of Older Men

by Laurel

Since my early dating days, my taste has always run toward older men. Significantly older.

When all my friends were dating guys who were at least within a few years of their age, at 24 I was involved with a man who was 44. The guys my own age just did not seem interesting to me. It's like they weren't quite ripe yet.

The interesting thing is that as I have grown older the age of the men I date has remained about the same (mid-40's), so recently they have only been a few years older than myself. So if the pattern remains, in a little over a decade I could technically be dating "younger men."

However, I have recently taken up with a man who is once again 20 years older than I am, and I must admit that there are some good things to be said for it.

First of all, an older man will always think you are amazingly beautiful. As I look in the mirror to see the silver hairs cropping up and the little lines being etched around my eyes, an older man just makes me feel like I'm some goddess sprung from the sea like Botticelli's Venus.

In addition, they are incredibly considerate lovers, and don't rush through sex like they're competing in the 50-yard sprint. They take their time and enjoy exploring every inch of your body, as someone appreciating a fine wine.

Happily, they are often interested in stimulating your mind as much as your body. The level of conversation is usually considerably higher than the men who are my contemporaries, and I love being able to learn new things from them.

They still feel it's OK to open doors for you, bring you flowers, and pay the bill when you go to dinner. Yes, of course I'm able to do all those things for myself, but why should I?

Older men enjoy taking care of me, and in turn I do caring things for them like cook fine meals, rub their shoulders when they're tense, and other things women are good at. With older men it's OK to be feminine, which I like.

One of the best things about older men is that they have learned enough to know that the woman is often right. And if they are really smart they let her have her way, even when she is wrong.

So while dating an older guy can have its drawbacks (like when you go out and people think you are father and daughter), there is still a lot to recommend it. Besides, I'm still hoping that one day Sean Connery will come along and sweep me off my feet.
