Women in their 20s dating older men

As Ok Cupid founder Christian Rudder has said, this is quite common.

As with Bob, anytime I responded to the older men online, thanking them for their interest and reiterating my age-range preference (which clearly specified 31 to 42), I was offered a patronizing lecture on the value of an open mind and a laundry list of reasons they are young at heart, complete with winking references to their still-spry sexual prowess.

I met Bob at a restaurant on a summer afternoon in 2014.

I was enjoying a glass of white wine and sharing an appetizer with a good friend when he sat down next to us at the bar.

Fresh out of high school, my father had been her first kiss, her first sexual experience, her first love.When I set up a profile on Ok Cupid, I was inundated with messages from men in their late 40s, 50s and even some in their 60s.While I did get some messages from men closer to my own age, they were in the minority.I was also inundated with examples of famous couples with large age differences, in case I didn’t know them.Such mansplaining is one of the many reasons I don’t want to date significantly older men.
