As women over 50, most of us are not willing to head over to the local Steak and Shake for a date.
No, we want to be wined and dined at nice restaurants, and for some of us only the best will do.
Believe it or not, lots of men want to date us -- older men, men our age and even younger men are trying to catch our eye.
Somehow, they've created this great fantasy of who they think we are, and that is what they want to experience. He could have had the pick of the litter his own age and even younger, yet he was asking me, a 50 year old woman, on a date? Instead, I played the game and flirted with him, while having a charming afternoon being courted by a young handsome man. As much chemistry as we had, I actually found it hard to relate to a lot of what he was saying, but that afternoon was fun and he sure did make me feel good!
I'll be the first to admit it feels fantastic when a younger man asks you out. As great as it is for the ego, a younger man is in a totally different stage of his life.
