So i've got to say that "older" women rock.

(provided they don't want babies)

For the first time ever i've begun dating a 30 yr old woman. She's got a great career and interesting things to say, which is a huge change from the younger girls i normally date. The best news is that she has no interest in babies, nor any particular desire to marry, but she does want to settle down, which is exactly what i want. Fittingly, she works in high-end fashion and owns more shoes than aportnoy, so she'll never give me flak for the money I spend on frivolous things.

I had what was probably my best first-date ever with her, particularly because it didn't feel like a first date. Everything flowed so smoothly. We both knew there was compatability due to common interests and manner of dress, but I don't think either of us expected it to go as well as it did. Half-way through the date she told me that "they don't make me anymore," which is probably the best compliment I've ever received. I have to admit that I was a complete gentleman and incredibly charming though. She's also got the most delicate Parisian accent, and some of the outfits she wears, omg... This one is definitely a keeper.

Anyway, I'm very happy with the way 2007 has started and I think this is the end of single GQGeek. Our second date is this week and i've already sprung opera tickets on her for next month, which she was absolutely thrilled about, since she's a big fan of the opera but has never gone with a date.

I figured it was my duty to post this since i'm usually such a cynic.

Good for you GQ!

She sounds like a great gal. I just went out with a 25-year old who's still in myspace land. Cute, but ultimately annoying. Have fun.

26 going on 40 is what I'm usually told.

She is, and I feel your pain. How old are you btw? I always said that I'd marry a nice little 25 year old when i was 40, but I think I'm changing my tune.

Mature woman vs aging teeny bopper. No contest.

Congrats on getting '07 off to a great start!

Good for you. I made a similar discovery several years ago myself. The problem is that at 30 she still has time to get baby fever. Next time aim higher.

While certainly possible, I think it's quite unlikely in her case. Not only does she not want kids, but she doesn't like them either. She has absolutely no maternal instincts, and that's straight from her mouth. Plus, she enjoys her freedom too much. She sees being married with kids as living in an 8x6 cell.

I'm 35, going on 70, so the 25-year old hitting on me was a nice ego boost. That said, the biggest erogenous zone is still between the ears.

Most people I know claim that a 5-6 year age difference is ideal, and I hope that it works this way for you.

Congrats, nothing like the excitement of new romance. I just turned 27 on Tuesday and I agree that there is a world of difference between most 25 year olds and 30 year olds.

Good for you!
What was your first date attire?
post #13 of 161
I met my wife when I was 23 and she was 27. She is an IP lawyer with a great career and did not exactly have very maternal instincts. Nonetheless, we both wanted to get married and have kids. 10+ years later we have two and hopefully more to come.

I agree that older women are usually more interesting than early 20s. The problem is that past a certain age, if they haven't settled down (much like men), some become bitter and resentful.

Sounds like you really hit it off GQ, that's great. I should however caution you that no matter what a woman says and thinks at an intellectual level wrt babies, we are essentially hardwired to procreate and ALL women get the urge and need at some point in their lives to be a mom. Some go through with it and have a child, others don't; it often depends on the circumstances at that point in her life in my experience.

Anyway, best of luck with her!

uh, 4 years older than you are is not an "older woman". try at least 10 to 15.

IMO any woman who doesn't want kids has issues. This is my opinion based on a number of women I've dated with this outlook. The caveat to this is I am talking of women who are 100% certain, not ones who aren't sure and haven't lived life enough yet.

I could tell you some stories...
