Hollywood older women dating younger men
I went on as many dates with men in their mid-forties or above as I could arrange.My dates began offering gifts – and monthly cash allowances – to see them on a more regular basis.As a woman, your takeaway is that while you may get frustrated at the lack of quality responses, put yourself in a man’s shoes.He has no idea what to write in his first email to you, and he’s competing with hundreds of men for your attention.For all the talk about “The End of Men” and how gender roles have been obliterated and women can write to men first, blahblahblah, here’s what ACTUALLY happened after four months: • The women as a group received over 20 times more messages than the men.• The two most attractive women received 83% of all messages.I was in my late twenties, a television producer, and fresh out of a suffocating three-year relationship with a man who drained both my time and my finances when I signed up. Instead, I fantasised about someone older, more sophisticated, more established.And, if I’m being honest, someone with some money, too.
As a man, your takeaway is that the competition is fierce, and thus far, you have not been up to it.Until this week, “modern” sugar daddy dating was barely known in Britain.But websites that promise to match older wealthy men with young attractive women have been thriving in America for years; one of the most popular – Seeking Arrangement.com, which bills itself as a place “where the attractive meet the affluent” – claims to have a million subscribers, with 10 women for every man.It has just launched in the UK, where it is already boasting 80,000 members.
In return for a no-strings but mutually beneficial relationship, the women who sign up can get to be treated like a lady, showered with gifts, taken on all-you-can-buy shopping sprees, and enjoy meals at the best tables in town.
However, it’s always good to back up hypotheses with facts, and that’s what Jon Millward did with this experiment, posted on his eponymous blog.
