Widowed, separated, or divorced, a growing number seek young men for dating and companionship.And since men have been dating younger women for ages, why are so many of us surprised — shocked, even — that women would follow suit?For Wheeler and other women like her, younger men — many of them 15 years or more their juniors — are a natural fit.
She has hosted over twelve hundred speed dating/mixer events, coached hundreds of men and women into dating gurus, and she has proudly played matchmaker for countless love-seeking singles.
Valerie reminds us that attitudes have changed, that you have to be prepared to pay your way, to wear condoms, to be prepared for ailments and things like that.
She said that, unfortunately, a lot of older men hate wearing condoms, they say it’s like having a bath with your overcoat on, so women are foregoing that, DO NOT forego the condom because STDs are everywhere!
Wheeler, a fiery redhead who lives outside Baltimore, leaned back in her chair and sighed. “I liked younger guys even when I was in high school — like a year or two younger.
I was a cougar before there were cougars.” Indeed, Wheeler’s pre-marriage and post-divorce dating history reads like a steamy screenplay.
