I'm Getting Me An Older Woman

Today was as good of a time as any to blog about the sudden realization that older woman are where it's at. Monday's are always the toughest days of the week to get thru (especially for you people living a "real" life) and because of that I thought these reasons can help jumpstart your day/week/month or even your year to going out and getting what you want.

So for all of my guys out there, whether your are in a relationship or running around town, allow me to point out the top ten reasons why you need to get yourself an older woman.

No.10 - Older women are independent

Older women are typically more comfortable being alone. They’ve spent time in and out of relationships and consequently they know how to get along fine without us by their sides every single moment. Cha-Ching. They know that they don’t need a boyfriend attached to their their side to be happy. This means that older women are less likely to be clingy or needy, which makes them much easier to get along with.

No.9 - Older women are assertive

Older women often have a clearer sense of who they are and what they want. Consequently, they’re less timid when it comes to men and they’re also less inclined to play games. While a woman in her early 20s might waste your time playing hard to get, or trying to make you jealous, a woman even five or 10 years older is more likely to cut to the chase and be upfront about her feelings or lack thereof. Can anyone say "refreshing turn-on?"


No.8 - Older women offer good conversation

There’s nothing like going out on a date and having a 45-minute conversation about the Twilight series, followed by a crazy tale about how your date was going to buy this one purse, but instead she didn’t and got this other purse instead.

A good conversation is one of those things we tend to take for granted until we haven’t had one in a while. No one knows that better than I do. Great conversation skills are something that younger women often lack, not so much because they’re women, but mostly because they’re young.

Quite simply, older women have lived longer. They’ve seen things, done things and been places. They have more interesting stories and more experience, and that makes them better conversationalists. Don’t underestimate the importance of talking; it will keep a relationship interesting long after the spark of the initial attraction has faded.

No.7 - Older women have more money

Call me “pragmatic” but the truth is, older women do tend to have more money than younger women. I'm not saying that’s the most important thing to consider when dating someone but come on fellas isn't it a comfort to know that we aren’t going to have to pay for every single date over the course of a relationship. Nor are we going to have to pay her mobile phone bill when her modelling career “temporarily” stalls.

No.6 - Older women have more mature friendships

Younger women are often deeply entangled in cliques. Through texts, phone calls, Twitter updates, Facebook status' and daily e-mails they’re constantly checking in with their girls. In order to become her boyfriend, you have to have the approval of her friends. Before you make plans, she’s got to check with everyone from Laura and Laurel to Carrie and Karen. It can be exhausting.

Older women are often less invested in seeking the approval of their female friends. They don’t need to consult their friends before making even the most minor decisions. Older women are more confident and self-reliant; their friendships are more mature. They’ve had time to sift through the fair-weather friends, the hangers-on and the airheads, and they’ve streamlined their social networks.

No.5 - Older women make better dates

The thing that makes older women better dates is that they have more sophisticated tastes. Plain and simple, older women do grown-up things. They’re not interested in getting stupid drunk and passing out in a bar bathroom. They’re not interested in grinding on a dance floor to obnoxiously loud techno music (although I will frequent the Jersey Shore as long as I live). Older women are past their rebellious phase and over their need to be the center of attention.

No.4 - Older women are less drama-prone

Maybe it’s because younger women experience a lot of firsts that they seem unprepared to navigate life’s twists and turns. First loves, first broken hearts, first betrayals: I suppose it can all seem like too much sometimes. Younger women just always seem to have more drama in their lives than their more experienced counterparts do. Due to their immaturity, younger women tend to magnify the importance of every little thing. When you’re dating a really young woman, there always seems to be a new catastrophe or crisis. It’s really impossible to avoid getting sucked into the drama, pointless as it may seem. Most older women are cooler under pressure; they know how to deal with disasters, and they can often handle them on their own.

No.3 - Older women have more sexual experience

Inferior Sex vs. Superior sex? Pretty Easy right? Older women are better in bed. They’ve gotten over all the little insecurities and anxieties that can negatively impact your sex life. Older women are comfortable in their own skin. Moreover, they know how to make the bedroom exciting and interesting. They’ve graduated beyond the bedroom basics and their experience often makes them more willing to try new things. And if I was young and immature I would have made this number 1 but...

No.2 - Older women have more relationship experience

Older women know how to handle the trials and tribulations associated with relationships because they’ve been through just about all of it before. She’s going to have more realistic expectations. She’s less likely to have a princess complex. Older women are typically more measured and well-mannered in their response to relationship crises, which makes the chances of a long-term relationship with her much better.

No.1 - Older women value your time together

Equipped with a clear sense of what’s really important in life, older women are more appreciative of the time you spend together and they aren’t likely to be reckless with your emotions. And at the end of the day ladies...that's all we want. While younger women often don’t take men, relationships or life in general very seriously, an older woman understands the value of a good man. She’s seen what’s out there, she knows what’s at stake and she’s not likely to take you for granted.

So again, this is not a diss to all young ladies out there, because all young women will hopefully one day mature into this heaven-sent, perfect older woman I just described. But do understand, when you want a guy to really settle down and be true to you...these are things that you are going to have to be able to do. Just wanted to give you guys and gals the heads up.
