Dating senior women for sex
But as older women, we may not feel we can ask a lot of questions of someone we’ve just exchanged a message with online. Speaking up about what we’re looking for is even harder—will we be labeled aggressive?
That’s because the messages we grew up with about what a woman is supposed to do and say can hinder our ability to find the person we’re searching for.
So you settle, feeling frustrated with the process or afraid that you’ll appear undesirable or too old.
The online dating process can increase those frustrations and magnify your feelings of age-related inadequacy.
Here’s why: Your concern about being viewed as “young” or attractive makes you even less willing to speak up about what you want.
Rather than appear too assertive or pushy, you do what women have been taught to do—quiet our voices and give a nice ‘sweet’ smile.
