I wanted to tell her on the first date, but I knew that would probably be weird. She kind of gave me this half-shy, half-amused smile. But as time has gone on, I also realized that she knew something that I didn’t. I tried so hard to keep that fire going, to keep that emotion alight, but it got harder and harder. And what was even more interesting was that once I realized this on a conscious level, and started trying to find more opportunities to give, the more we both, almost intuitively, became lovey-dovey. From the excitement of dating a woman I felt like I could marry. Imagine a whole nation of people constantly chasing the emotions they had when they were dating. That’s a recipe for disastrous marriages; for a country with a 50% divorce rate; for adultery (the classic attempt to turn the fire back on); for people who do stay together to simply live functional, loveless marriages. How many people are in pain simply because they’ve been lied to.
There are three types of VYW: By “older men” I’m talking about men between the ages of 30 and 49 or so, though men in their 50s who have followed my advice and taken care of themselves physically certainly apply also.
Wmen ask me all the time about what they're supposed to do about the men out there who say they only want younger women in their profiles. That's why you're reading this, isn't it And you've probably gone online or out into the real world to find him. The bottom line is that we must admit dating apps are not a young person's game. For those over-40 daters who have come to me saying they are never going to find someone, that all the good men are taken, and that they would never stoop to the level of trying a dating app, I simply say, "Just swipe right and see." They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
So I think the intentions were actually pretty genuine.
