Dating a man over 60
But after the first flutter of love and £50 notes, do these women really have any idea what is in store for them?As I discovered recently at a gathering of thirty to fifty-something women who were all single and dating, a younger woman pays an especially heavy price to be with a much older man.She met an adorable man 12 years older than her who was very keen, but who suddenly stopped calling or returning her texts. When men get to Wood’s age, they have a lot of health issues - both real and imagined.They’re obsessed with their libidos (or lack of them), their cholesterol levels, their blood pressure, their prostates.He’s either not that interested (unless you’re wearing PVC or a nurse’s outfit) or he’s popping Viagra like Smarties and you’re up all night grappling with a wrinkly old bloke who thinks he’s Leonardo Di Caprio. No, he’d broken his front tooth and couldn’t bear to see her until he’d had it replaced.
The pattern is always the same: rich, successful older man pairs up with unknown young woman.
We’ve long become accustomed to the sight of fabulously wealthy and famous older men dating younger women, but when the age gap reaches more than 30 years, you have to wonder what the women can be thinking.
Not that there is any shortage of much younger women keen to go to bed with these gnarled old codgers.
But while this may knock off a few years when he’s dressed, when he revealed himself in all his wrinkly majesty, Ms Humphreys will have discovered that he’s not a natural brunette, if you catch my drift.
While so much is written about what happens to women’s bodies when they hit 50 (their breasts and bottoms head south, their tummies never recover from having children, they have stretch marks, cellulite and sagging flesh), very little is said about what happens to men’s bodies at a similar age.
