This is the tail wagging the dog, in terms of why men date.
What drives men over 50 to pursue women is as primal as social. Over 50 men are able to start second families, albeit with younger women, but not the other way around.
My point isn't what's fair or unfair, but rather that many boomer men date younger women exclusively, relegating a vast number of incredible boomer women to wonder if or when men will ever "get it" when it comes to what they're missing in terms of dating, sex and relationships with women their age.
Men and women are equally eager to respond to their sexual desires, particularly after long, self-imposed sexual dry spells in bad marriages.
Women seem more controlled in terms of wanting an emotional component to become sexual again.
I've known lots of boomer men who were still trying, but mostly failing, to extend their casual sex years beyond their physical capabilities. At 67, I'm having the best sex ever, and it's with a 63-year-old woman. It's not that men aren't interested in relationships, but rather that there are so many more choices for men than women, particularly online, that a man can easily become like a kid in a candy store with a bag of dimes, wanting to sample every sweet.
