As an older woman that loves to ‘enjoy’ the younger man, I have heard pretty much every myth, stereotype, and rumour that you could probably ever hear about it. It’s funny how, in a world where older men are dating younger girls all around us, it’s still not quite as socially acceptable for the older woman to enjoy herself a younger guy.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones – there is 25 years between them, yet no one seemed to blink an eye. However, when Julianne Moore married Bart Freundlick, a guy nine years her junior, everyone had something to say. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon seemed to strike up a media frenzy too, with 11 years between them. Tina Turner was another celebrity “GILF” who tied the knot Erwin Bach, a guy 16 years younger than her. There was a whopping 32 years between Joan Collins and toy-boy Percy Gibson too.
The point I’m trying to make here is that with all the celebrity women choosing to jump on the Granny dating bandwagon, marrying men that were much younger than themselves, why is it still such a taboo subject?
Why are so many people refusing to talk about it?
So, rather than convince you that GILF dating is such a great idea, I decided to bust the lies instead – here are the 5 stupid myths you need to ignore abut the Granny dating world.
1 – Older woman are only looking for younger men because the men their own age are all dating younger guys.
Well, in some cases this might be true, but in most cases, it’s because the guys their own age can’t keep up in between the sheets anymore. Perhaps a marriage broke down, or their spouse died? One way or another, Granny dating is not older women looking in desperation for a younger guy.
2 – Younger guys don’t really like dating older women.
If this were really the case, why are there so many younger guys on Granny dating websites, looking for the GILF of their dreams? I reckon that pretty much speaks for itself, don’t you?
3 – The average Granny is really old and wrinkly.
OK, so I won’t lie – there probably are some old, wrinkly Granny’s in the dating world, but that’s not all it’s made up of. I’m a Granny, but I’m only 42 years old. I have a one-year old Granddaughter, who I love with all my heart, but that’s not all I am. I am also a woman that likes to keep herself in shape, regularly go to the gym, and have a body that most 20-year olds want.
You should probably have a look at what the offerings are before you go disregarding that Granny dating website altogether! 😉
4 – You can’t have a relationship with a GILF.
Most older women don’t want a relationship because they’ve already done that. They’ve been married for many years, had kids, enjoyed grandchildren, and are now looking to get their life back on track. They want to kick back, relax and have a bit of fun.
However, this is not to say that you can’t have a successful relationship with a hot Granny. It does happen, but they aren’t deluded enough to think that it SHOULD happen. They don’t want to rush into things like girls your own age do, that’s another added bonus!
5 – An older woman and a younger guy won’t have anything in common.
Oh really? Do you want to know what I’ve had with every single one of the younger men I’ve dated? Sex? A passion for life? An interest in excitement, and things out of the ordinary?
Sex is the biggest thing in many relationships, and it’s what destroys most of them too. He doesn’t want to have sex with her. She’s having sex with someone else. He wants to try this but she won’t do that…
With an open, honest and truthful relationship, like that you’d have with a Granny or GILF, someone who is bored of messing around and doesn’t have time for petty drama, you have sex in common. And isn’t that what you’re both there for in the first place?
At the end of the day, people will have their own opinions but granny dating is something you shouldn’t have an opinion on until you have tried it. Who knows what fun you could have once you delve in?
