You also know that really understanding men is a key to finally writing your own grownup love story. LM really says it best, so here is what he has to say after reading my Femi-Type series. As a guy she’s been a tremendous help in terms of understanding and relating to women in the 50 age group. You are grownup and you understand how important it is to be empathetic. They want love, companionship, romance and commitment and are doing their best to navigate the rocky shores of dating over 40.

I'm 33, Megan is 37, and the majority of the guests who were not relatives of the bride or groom fell somewhere squarely in between. Uncle Jack was away somewhere in France, but the mother of the groom put the kibosh on the whole thing.

Recently recovering from a relationship with a 65-year-old celebrity plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, Megan arrived to the wedding weekend licking her wounds, only to immediately be courted by the 72-year old uncle of the groom."They can smell me a mile away," she told me after she chatted with him about restaurants, real estate, his children, and his grandchildren, while the rest of us kids enjoyed a game of floating beer pong in the pool. "I don't want you to get hurt, dear," she whispered with reserved aplomb.

A man in his sixties will insist on holding your hand and tell you several times over how lucky he feels to be with you.

OK, Ladies, you want the honest, real, unvarnished truth about what a commitment minded, nice, cute, professional, divorced 54 year old man really wants from you? She’s a much better writer than we have on the guy’s side of things!

I’m no slouch: tall, trim, own my own business, nice guy to a fault. “L, you are kind, decent, funny, and attractive but I just don’t feel enough “electricity” (aka infatuation) so I’m going to have to end it.”The biggest obstacle I face it is meeting this expectation of “rock me to my soul connection” fantasy man that even they can’t explain.

Whatever it is, apparently I don’t have enough of it. In thinking about it, I’m not even sure when they say that, it’s the real issue.

If they want you they're not going to make you question it.

At this point in their lives most realize how fast it goes by and if you are their priority, they're going to make you know it real quick.

All I want, to use an old fashioned term, is a girlfriend.

Somebody I can take out to dinner on Wednesday, a picnic on Saturday, and talk to or text during the week. Getting dates isn’t the problem, it’s converting just one to girlfriend status that has been the challenge.

"About three weeks later, I got a letter from the White House. ] No one ever heard back from The New Kids on the Block. Old men are polite and thoughtful and young guys are generally self-centered."Megan is so passionate about dating older that she made me a list (a good one) of the five reasons that dating men in their sixties is just preferable to dating men in their twenties and thirties and why we should all stop judging her for it.1. I like a strong man that was raised when it wasn't abnormal to open your door, pull out your chair, and carry a heavy bag. To treat a woman like a LADY is the norm with a man in his sixties.2. A man in his sixties is not going to wait five years or even two to commit.
