On dating a younger man
I know I don’t entirely look my age, especially wearing worn out pyjamas, but I was flattered he had asked. I knew I felt something very deep for him, and could feel he felt the same about me, if not deeper at the time. I am a confident woman, but I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m well aware of how he could easily be with a smoking hot 20-something-year-old, just as he is well aware that I could be with an older, well-established man. Older women can provide valuable advice and guidance that comes through those extra years of life.I responded, “Um, I think I’m a bit older than you think I am.” I smiled at him sweetly.

Stewart’s visible glow proved that she was hardly concerned with the taboo often bestowed on May-December romances.Seasoned and most likely independent (financially or otherwise), older women are often assumed to hold all the cards in a love affair, creating a “boy toy” dynamic that undermines the man.The possibility these two lovers could relate of age and gender expectations is hardly considered.Visiting this week, the 75-year-old businesswoman confessed she’s found the perfect recipe to a happy personal life—and it’s not what you’d think.Recently dipping her toe back in the dating pool, Stewart has found herself enjoying the company of younger men. According to the stunning septuagenarian, a previous dating incident with a man in his 30s convinced her she needed an age cap.(Luckily, she has plenty to say in response to her critics.) Meanwhile, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Robin Wright, Kim Cattrall, Mariah Carey, Susan Sarandon, and Demi Moore (who also happens to have dated Klum’s current partner) also know what I’m talking about.
