Gladius wrote something REALLY interesting in his posting Link which suggested that many midlife women may not be looking for a long term relationship and that I should maybe date younger women.
I must admit I have a guilty pleasure and watch dating shows like Tough Love and Frank the Entertainer a Basement Affair (my favorite) on VH1.
All the women on those shows are presumably looking for "love" and mostly all way younger than the women I date.
Even though I have had wayyyyy too much fun in my midlife dating adventures I am a romantic and like everything about the "falling in love" experience.
The midlife chick I just finished dating definitely wasn't looking long-term or maybe even for a boyfriend, but neither of us realized it until things got "serious." If she decides she wants to be in a relationship there is a good chance she will try to come back.
Now I am now back to dating a former GF (the freaky girl....we both became available at the same time ha ha). She is 37 and definitely looking long-term and for a boyfriend, but outside of our obvious sexual attraction we are not sure what else there is.....but are trying to find out.
I may have been operating under the misconception that most midlife women are looking for "love" or long term deals.
So are midlife women in general just looking for sex and fun compared to younger women?
