How do I approach older women? watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    I'm 25, but I'm attracted to older women in their 40s and 50s particularly far more so than women around my own age. I find a lot of older women absolutely gorgeous and just find them more interesting as well.

    However, I don't really know how to go about approaching them. The problem is unlike women in their 20s, women in their 40s and 50s generally don't expect a guy in his 20s to be interested in them, so it's difficult to know how to go about it, how would most react to a guy in his 20s hitting on them?

    I find the idea of approaching older women somewhat daunting. I also feel slightly embarrassed about it, as if a 25 year old guy liking much older women is something a bit seedy.

    Any advice on this would be appreciated.

    I don't find that seedy at all. Speaking from the perspective of a woman from your
    target age group I have had a difficult past with men. I am over the whole flirting/small talk shite. basically I want it cold, hard and fast and straight to the point.... if you know what i'm saying ))) I'm sure there is someone out there for you, I know plenty of cougars lol

    You should make it obvious and flirt directly. Older women typically have fewer inhibitions, are less afraid of negative judgement from their peers, and, like you point out, get less attention from men, so you'll likely find you have a much easier time.
