Boys age like a fine wine. It takes awhile, a long while in fact, for a man to mature. When a woman ultimately meets a “real” man, she’s very very glad because she has waited so damn long for those sour boy grapes to mature into a sugary, silky virile gentleman. The Nickelodeon Channel, UK (of course it had to be a children’s channel to conduct this research, right?) found that studs don’t fully mature until they are 43-years-old, which turns out to be 11 years after women mature. So imagine how much more mature a man is, ladies, when he turns the big 5-0. He’s ripe for the picking.
50 Shades of Gray has never been sexier, or sexier, than on a man’s head. Gray is all about being more distinguished, intelligent, dapper, and wiser (that’s because he is!) than our junior masculine brethren. If there is any doubt about gray’s hotness values, just take a quick glance at the current G Team: George Clooney, Jon Stewart, John Slattery, Anderson Cooper, Jeff Bridges, Barack Obama, to name just a few. Gray is the Fresh Black.
A man 50 years and older is not in a hurry. He wants to please you, and takes excellent pleasure in making sure that happens. He also knows there is a lot more to do in the bedroom than just regular intercourse. A survey conducted by BJU International, as reported in Science Daily, found that fellows in their 50s are more pleased in their hookup lives than dudes in their 30s and 40s. Asked to rate their lovemaking satisfaction on a scale of 0-4, guys in their 50s rated their sexual satisfaction at Two.77, versus fellas in their 30s at Two.55 and those in their forties at Two.72. Yes, Mick Jagger, we can get satisfaction, and that’s because, at the end of the night, we have sated playmates to prove it.
Four. He loves kids, but doesn’t cargo you with his own.
Most fellows in their 50s (including myself) have older children who are either in high school, college, or out in the working world. Because our kids are older, then, we aren’t asking you to help us raise our kids. With that said, when it comes to kids, 50s Boys understand, on a deep, fundamental level (if they are worth a damn, that is), that kids come before everything else in life, including ourselves. Most guys in their 50s, that I know, love kids. So, when you compare us to that Man/Boy in his 20s and 30s sporting a baseball hat and long cut-offs draping ridiculously low off his assets, who can slightly wash his clothes, let alone switch a diaper, is there truly a choice on who you’d rather go out with? I didn’t think so.
Five. He makes date plans, and slams to them.
How many times have you waited by your smartphone to get a text on where, and when, you were going on a date with a fellow? That almost never happens with a stud in his 50s (and if it does, run away!). His work schedule is usually utter, so he doesn’t have time to permanently shift around the time and date of his dates. He wants something to look forward to, and when to look forward to it. He doesn’t play by the grass is always greener set of rules by floating three or more tentative dates to wait until the very last minute before determining which is the best one to take. Do you know why? He’s got gray hair (see Reason #Two above).
6. He’s physically fit.
Sure our knees creak a little more, and are backs are a tad stiffer, but if we take care of ourselves, which many of us do, we can be in just as good a form as our masculine underlings in their 30s and 40s. Are we going to strike them in a straight-up Spartan Race, Cross Fit competition, or marathon? Nah. But can we look as good as they do when we finish the competition? Hell to the yes. If you have any doubts, take a moment and check out the Facebook page “Fit Guys Over 50.” https://www.facebook.com/fitguysover50
Guys in their 50s have been in the workforce now for over 30 years. To put it another way, that’s as long as a stud in his 30s has been alive. So, ladies, you don’t have to worry if he’s going to pick up the bill on the very first date (see Reason #8 below), nor do you have to be worried about his desire for you to be his next Sugar Momma. He has his own place to live, a car, credit cards, and a 401k plan. If he doesn’t, run.
8. He knows he’s gonna pay on the very first date.
If a 50s Man asks you out on a date, he’s going to pay. It’s that ordinary. He asked you out. He pays. He knows that. How? When he was a boy, growing up in the 1960s, his parents trained him how to be a gentleman. In order to be a true gentleman, he learned to hold the door for a woman when she comes in a restaurant, and when the bill comes, he grabs it, with relish. If there is a tug for the tab on the other side of the table, he pulls firmer. She always lets go.
9. He’s well traveled in the world.
There is nothing worse for a well-educated, well-traveled woman than to have a date with a man who has never been outside the area where he lives, or for that matter, the United States. To be a worldly boy, you have to travel the world. By the time a fellow hits his 50s, he should have traveled the world, a lot! I, for one, have been to every continent, except Antarctica. A 50s Man who has done a safari in Kenya, or scuba dived The Fine Barrier Reef, or railed motorcycles in the Sahara Desert just has a entire helluva lot going on over a boy who talks incessantly about his brand fresh Ford 150 pickup truck, complains about how Alex Rodriguez is bad for the Yankees, or asks you to witness his kids so he can play golf with his pals this weekend (see Reason #Four).
Ten. He doesn’t want you to mother him.
A man in his 50s is not looking for a woman to mother him. We want to be with women who are our playmates, not our parents. We want a woman who is independent, intelligent, joy, sultry, and compassionate. Yes, we love our moms — all good dudes do. We just don’t want you to be ours.
In the end, we’re just looking for someone good to date, as are you, which you’ll get when you say yes to a date with a 50s Man.
