What It's Really Like to Be a Guy Who Only Dates Much Older Women
‘I chased an older woman for a long time and we got married – but now she’s 70’

I chased her for a long time and, as I was lucky enough to make a lot of money, I was able to treat her to all kinds of luxuries. She was very wary at the time, saying that the age difference was too much and she was worried that she would regret it later. I brushed all this off as I was blindingly in love and, eventually, we got married and for many years it was brilliant and we were totally into each other. I am no longer attracted to her physically and she is not interested in sex — in fairness, she probably has been pretending to have an interest for a long time.
