Dating games men play and why
Gary was smitten over message and they met up in between Los Angeles and Palm Springs a few days later. Throughout the weekend, as I explained Megan's preferences to my college girlfriends in their early thirties, they made a face like they had swallowed sour milk and erupted in a chorus of, "That's gross," "ewwwww," and my personal favorite, "he's like my grandpa." To be fair, Uncle Jack was actually someone's grandpa.Megan's quick-witted retort is to rattle off the names of male celebrities who are sexagenarians, septuagenarians, and even octogenarians who you would probably sleep with: Harrison Ford, 71, Clint Eastwood, 83, Jack Nicholson, 76, Robert Redford, 77. "From an early age I just found older men to seem reliable and supportive. Bush (he was president at the time) was the most handsome man in the world.

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.
When planning engagement party games, remember: There are many different games to play at an engagement party that can keep the festivities lively, fun, and memorable.
From discovering more about the couple to making fun of the challenges of planning a wedding, lighthearted games are a great way to celebrate a couple's impending union.
For these reasons and others, my friend Megan O'Brien, a successful woman in her own right as the founder of the marketing agency Beauty Brander, almost exclusively dates men in their sixties and older.
We recently attended a wedding in Palm Springs together, a fancy affair with pool parties, fireworks, and a ceremony at the Empire Polo Club where they host the Coachella music festival.
