The fact that she was strictly out of bounds added greatly to the mystery and the longing.
James Innes-Smith fell in love with a woman 20 years older than him at the age of 15, the same age French Presidential hopeful Emmanuel Macron met wife-to-be Brigitte Trogneux.
And, unlike the 23-year-old who gets tanked and throws shade at your ex, she’s got class. I once went out with a young man from Queens who only dated older women because younger ladies, he found, couldn’t do a thing without checking in with 15 of their friends.
As a result, my so-called casual relationships go on a lot longer than most people’s so-called committed ones.
I date younger men off and on over periods of 2, 3, 4, 5 — or even 15 years.
Dating an older woman is quite the rage these days.
As a woman over 35, I’ve never felt more desired by men in their late 20s and early 30s than I do now—moreso even than when I was that age. Pay no attention to the ol’ elbow-jabbing, wink-wink idea that cougars* are “more likely to put out and pay for everything.” Meh, that may be a reason a naïve man attempts to score with an older lady, but it’s hardly the reason a smart man enters a relationship with one.

To prepare, all of us on the team had to create a profile.
Like many boarding school boys forcibly removed from their mother at an early age, I tended to place women on unfeasibly high pedestals.
With her statuesque figure and alabaster skin, Judith wouldn’t have looked out of place atop a Doric column.
It’s pretty common for men to date younger women – which is exactly why dating older women is so enjoyable.
