So I'm a 25 year old waitress at major breakfast chain (won't specify)... and today a man about 46 years old with mostly gray hair came and sat at the counter to eat. He was really attractive and really built (maybe ex-military?) I've already got some weird, mild fettish-type thing going where I'm strangely attracted to older men. I kept catching him staring at me the entire time he stayed, and I ended up checking him out at the register when he was ready to leave. He got serious after he paid and asked if I was seeing anyone. I said no because I'm not good at lying. He said he'd like to take me on a date, and I gave the guy my number and can expect a call next Friday... Can someone tell me what a guy his age would want with a 25 year old waitress with a kid. Everything seems a little suspect... Is there a chance he's genuine or is he having a midlife crisis? I can't think like a 46 year old man, so if anyone is on here close to that, can you share your input? thanks lol
Most Helpful Guy
If a guy is 46 years old and single, almost every available woman has children. so that factor stops being an issue. You are young and attractive and it always makes people feel younger when they are involved with a younger partner. That does not mean that his interest is a midlife crisis/passing phase. If you try to analyze this and are overly skeptical, you can ruin it for yourself.
One date with him may convince you that he is crazy or it may start making you think that he is a decent guy. Judge him for who he is and not for his age and keep yourself open to the possibility that a slightly different relationship may have much happiness to offer you. (And most older men are very attentive lovers.)1
