These men are fatherly figures looking for mature, settled women, not young ones who are more apt to be after the money and full of play. So, children are accepted. Usually, when older men are not suffering from a mid-life crisis, they generally think sensibly. That is not to say that a younger woman cannot be a good mate, but it is to say that young women are more risky.
I was talking with an old man in a store a few days ago. He was about 75 years.He was preparing to purchase a bottle of cologne when he asked a teen cashier if she liked the fragrance. He also flirted with her and another young cashier. He said that he wanted a young girl who would rub his feet at night. He said to me, "I cannot do anything else, so a good young woman to take care of me and keep me warm is what I am looking for. If he has money, he will probably find the girl of his dreams. Poor old guys.
I was reading an article about Hugh Hefner, 86. who was said to be reuniting with his 26-year old sweetheart. According to the article, the girl who was living with him in his mansion had to move out when the main girl decided to come back. The two were pictured smiling happily and playing a board game.
Women do not boast of such things like men who think that they are cooking with oil when they find someone young. Women are less mouthy, but some of them use their money to attract men, too. There are many older women taking care of younger men who sit on their laurels and enjoy it all. So, I suppose the old guys are not doing much worse than the old women are. No wonder so many young people are lazy and unemployed!
