It’s not easy to be ‘just friends’ with someone of the opposite sex if one of you wants more.
Online dating in Kenya grew significantly during the first decade of this century thanks to an influx of high speed fiber optic bandwidth that led to a reduction in internet prices.
I’ve crossed paths with other older men, too, in the past year or so: some I merely corresponded with; some I met in person.
I’ve discovered how world-weary and bitter they can be, desperate to offload their emotional baggage on any female who will listen.
Why don’t older men think the same rules apply to them? Older men don’t seem to know how to conduct themselves around women. They don’t know whether they should pay for your dinner, or whether it’s OK to compliment you on your legs. They have made it tricky for me to find older chaps attractive, and believe me, I have tried. I saw him for dinner a few times until it became apparent that he wanted to take things to the next level: the bedroom.After all, if he looked so unappealing in his clothes, what on earth would he look like naked?Afterwards, many hundreds of people from around the world, men and women, contacted me to say they’d enjoyed the book and admired me for being so honest about what is still a fairly taboo subject: relationships between older women and younger men.I would have liked to remain platonic friends with him.But it came down to that old When Harry Met Sally thing.We exchanged friendly messages and spoke on the phone. We stayed in touch via email and Daniel kept trying to pursue things further, but I knew there would be no point.You can’t commit yourself to someone because he is a nice person — even if he does have a cool car.So why on earth should I settle for an out-of-condition old codger like him just because society deems it appropriate for me?Especially not when I still feel vibrant and youthful enough to attract the hot young Pups of this world? ’ sneered one anonymous troll, while others gleefully informed me that my actions meant I faced a sad and lonely old age.Of course a paunchy man fast approaching his 70th birthday will not compare favourably with a 23-year-old young stud.Especially not when I still feel vibrant and youthful enough to attract the hot young Pups of this world?
