If you have you have ever noticed that older men are unlikely to make eye contact with your or have felt completely ignored at a dance or party, Lisa thinks she knows why.In our interview, I asked Lisa this question directly and she gave me a simple answer.Single men in their 60s are looking for a woman who is feminine and is willing to help them feel like a man.
If your love is true, you'll help everyone involved work through these issues and more.
And both you and your 11th-hour soulmate will congratulate yourselves for having the gumption to step off the cakewalk of same-age coupling.
(Unless, of course, they were named Cher.) But all this prompts a bigger question: Is it smart or stupid to take on a partner 20 years younger once you hit 50, 60 or 70?
The answer to that question may lie in your answers to these: Just as age has its rewards, so do age differences.
If they are grown, it may strike them as practically incestuous to learn that Mom or Dad is dating someone their same age.
They may worry about fortune hunters or a compromised inheritance, or struggle to perceive their new 40-year-old stepmother in a maternal light.
The older person, for his part, gets a higher-energy companion who is likely to help the couple stay fit — and, quite likely, more sexually active.
But won't the "junior partner" eventually have to pay the piper?
Well, if you're 50 and your companion is 70, you're almost bound to provide care long before you would for a mate of the same age. Plus, most people would willingly choose to endure the rough patches so long as they get a reasonable run of the good stuff beforehand.
