Here’s an anonymous letter we received about older women dating younger men. What do you think?
To the Editor:
Men who are more than 10 years younger than a woman are usually dating the woman for money and other advantages. I can speak quite frankly from experience. My mother who is widowed is dating a man 24 years her junior. My mother also is very financially well off. He tells her how beautiful she is and how in love he is with her after only a few months of dating. They are together now 3 years and I know this guy is in for the long haul. There is absolutely nothing I can do about it. When I have tried to explain to my mother, she doesn’t want to here it, she is soo wrapped up into the flattery. He tells her how immature the young girls are, meanwhile he’s asking her what her kids got in her husband’s will. I think more and more older women should be advised as to the predators out there especially on the Internet. They talk about child predators but there are also predators for older lonely women.
Just thought I’d share my story. Please write more articles about how these young men hunt after these older women with money. My mother used to get men even in their 20s on these internet dating sites after her and she is in her late 60s. Pretty disgusting.
