The same thing may happen to you, and we will not bail on you, or make any negative assumptions. How about we enjoy each other, and this big beautiful world we live in! It is what we were raised with. Telling me that is insulting me and all women. How about you send us cheerful emails while we are away, or call us, and even ask if there is anything you can do while we support our loved ones in their time of need? It is not something to hide in horror about; just do something about it. Certainly go ahead and bring up those lifestyle choices.
That matters to me. Sadly, even young women have implied such misconceptions to me, which especially hurts to hear. I find myself wondering why he is not enjoying a wonderful woman closer to his age. This attitude also has an underlying assumption that much younger women are more desirable, and therefore the man feels, since he is entitled, that he must be with a much younger woman. It is what we were raised with. Dating can be a way to revel in the moment; I encourage it to be viewed that way, at least initially. Rather than project outdated, oppressive and very boring rules on her, embrace the beauty of a woman telling you exactly who she is and how she would like to be treated. The idea that your date is straight, cisgender, and dates the same is informed by heteronormative and cisgender-normative values. So when a man 20 years older approaches me with a sense of entitlement and expectation that I do the opposite of what I set out to do, simply to please his appearance expectations, I find that irritating and invalidating to older women. Whatever you are doing, a woman your age can do it just as well. And since I am mostly heterosexual and know it more thoroughly than queerness, I will focus on that type of dating here. In addition, the very concept of what was attractive was also drilled into our young brains, and unfortunately, what was considered attractive was informed by racism , ableism , ageism , and cis-gendered heterosexuality. Again, most women over 50 have a secure sense of themselves. We still value you, we may even treasure you, but we want to achieve this very important goal. This was instilled in girls of my generation, as soon as we could comprehend the idea of marriage. Many of us also have reached a pinnacle in our careers, and all of a sudden may be engrossed in the project of a lifetime. How about you send us cheerful emails while we are away, or call us, and even ask if there is anything you can do while we support our loved ones in their time of need? Please be prepared to learn that most women over 50 are fairly secure in themselves and are able to appreciate beauty in its many many different human forms. We are still having sex , falling in love , and working out relationships with each other. But it is a relief for many women over 50 to not have any specific relationship goal, but to just enjoy every moment with our new-found friend. But I hope it is a start. There will be other times when we are much more available. It does not serve anyone to cling to tired old misogynistic patriarchal patterns, and dating later in life is a great time free yourself from those old patterns. However, the culture one is born into and experiences as a young child in, can leave a lingering imprint — and my generation still retains some of those old ideas. I have had men tell me that although I did not have big boobs, I did have long legs, and they preferred that anyway.
