voicefulmarlin saidI have had several relationships that I have learned from and grown over the years as a person. Those relationships were all initiated by younger men. I really didn't have to make an effort to start them. So I ask question. What is it that attracts younger men to older men and most important why??? Confused!
I can give you 20+ reasons. The cynical one is that some younger guys can be gold diggers. Whether you've got "gold" or not, it's a matter of them suspecting you might. Or having anything that will support them for the time being.
But nicer reasons include that some older guys are simply more interesting & intriguing. And often a lot more knowledgable about the world, which can appeal to some younger guys. They may also have a lot of answers to things, that the young guy is still struggling to find.
Although admittedly there are plenty of younger guys who are dense as stump posts, who wouldn't know or appreciate they were dating a Nobel Prize winner. On the other hand, the abilities of some younger guys are breathtaking.
I'm reminded of a line that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective Sherlock Holmes speaks to Dr. Watson (I hope I have this right, quoted from memory): "Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself. But talent instantly recognizes true genius."
Therefore date nothing less than a talented guy. Anyone's else's motives, and permanence when you're an older guy, are questionable.
