Why are there so many old guys who think younger women want to date them?

I was at a bar with a friend recently, and we kept getting hit on by these two old guys who looked like they just got off work at their accounting firms. These weren't men who looked like 50 yo John Stamos or something, these were guys who had white hair and beer guts and probably weren't even much to look at when they were 20. To make it worse they were dressed in a way that made them look even older, in these cheap button-down shirts and khakis that looked like they were picked out by their moms. It was weird, but it happens often enough to make us wonder why so many old guys who look and seem old think young women actually want them. Are they really that delusional?

  • As you get older you start to care less and your more willing to take risks and say things you wouldn't when younger. 20 year olds worry they will say or do something that will mess up life forever... Older people know that forever doesn't exist and so don't have that fear

    • That's great, but there is fear and then there's delusional thinking.

  • my last girlfriend was 18 and the one before that was 18 too. before that most of them were early twenties and i have to say its fine you dont like older guys yourself but you shouldn't assume no younger women do and then use the term delusional aimed at guys my age

    • Those girls are the rare exception, though, not the rule. Most of us aren't sitting around hoping an older man is going to save us from... what, exactly? It's not a rational thought, just like it's not a rational thought for me to think that JJ Watt is just waiting to meet me so he can marry me.

    • maybe im the rare exception but obviously the girls i spoke of werent because there have been many in my past... i wasn't suggesting all girls like older men but just illustrating you are wrong if you think all younger women are put off by the idea. oh and none of them expected me to save them from anything... we may have had a dom/sub thing going on in the bedroom but whatever age a partner of mine is i see them as an equal

  • Maybe because they have seen some younger girls with men within their age? They just give it a try. I am not young but I have been hit on by men around 40-50+++ lol.

    • There are girls who like older men, but even with that, 30+ years of age difference seems to be a stretch. I like older guys, too, but my idea of an older guy is someone 10 years older, someone who isn't quite old enough to be my dad.

    • And all the girls who grew up without a dad want those guys who are 20-30 years older

  • Women look in the mirror and see someone fat and ugly. Fat and ugly old men look in the mirror and see an alpha male body builder. It's a mental illness.

    If you have to move your gut to see your shrivelled dick and you can't stand up without groaning and farting then you're out of the game, my friend.

    • Well, to be fair, most guys are out of the game, but that wasn't my question. My question has to do with old guys thinking younger women are sitting around wishing they could date someone old enough to be our fathers. Or grandfathers.

    • Yeah, that's even more true of young guys, though.

    • Lol. Well, guys who go looking for girls in bars are already bit desperate no matter what the age.

  • as an "older" guy, i'll tell you that i get hit on by jailbait. i guess you'd have to ask the girls why they do this but it doesn't bother me. i personally don't pursue unless they're of age.

    • Well if someone hits on you, more power to you. But it's another thing to believe that girls in their 20s want to date a man who's *clearly* in his 50s.

    • ok. i was on the younger side for one of the girls i slept with. she dated her professors in their fifties. she was a psych student so she might have had some issues but i didn't see any. she was a sapiosexual.

  • Cuz Young women do like older. guys , just like older women like younger guys , if you are attracted you', re attracted are really bad nothing to do with it age is just a number , legal age that is. I am 41 years old and I am attracted to Girls that r in their 20's 30's 40's 50's etc.. so doesn't really matter the age its the person

    • Ok has nothing to do with what we are saying.

    • We are all imperfect people

  • I don’t think they’re delusional, that’s seems a bit strong, but maybe they feel confident because they’re older, and therefore smarter and wiser (at least they think they are), so they’re just putting it out there, hoping for that one-in-a-million... I think they have good taste if they present themselves to you, don’t you agree?

  • There are a lot of younger girls who want to date older men. It's actually very common. You simply weren't attracted to them, which is fine. Not sure why you think your opinion on this topic trumps everyone else's. As if you're the determiner lol. Biologically women seek out men who are protectors and providers. Older men can usually offer these qualities a lot faster than younger men.

    • Yeah, when I'm 50, I'll be invisible to men. Most women are when they get older. Men are all too happy to tell us that we have an expiration date. That's why women invented this cougar nonsense to make ourselves feel there's hope when we get old.

  • Lots of older guys hit on younger girls knowing they'll get shot down. It's a form of amusement to watch the princesses self inflate their egos, especially if a few shots of tequila are involved. There's enough delusion to go around.

    • So you're saying old guys are masochists because they enjoy being publicly humiliated? That's pathetic, and makes no sense. No one hits on anyone because they're hoping to get shot down.

    • No, that's not what I said at all. The entertainment isn't derived from public humiliation, it's derived from watching narcissists operate in their little princess bubble. Please don't put words in my mouth. It's disingenuous and makes for a weak argument. You can do better.

  • I don't know. I'm not that old myself, so I can't answer that question very well. It is possible they are indeed delusional, thinking that young women want them (mostly for their money) either from their own experience or the experience of a friend/acquaintance.

    • @Attractivegirl899 change your name because you are more manly than attractive actually 100% manly 0% attractive pal

    • @Frosty make sure you unfollow me too creep

  • Because enough young women are into older guys for them to make the effort. Even if only 5% are interested, that means 1 out of 20 will bite.

  • 20 year old girls being attracted to 50+ year old guys I agree is very rare and probably odd... but I think you're underestimating how often girls in their 20s are attracted to guys in their 30s and 40s. A lot of guys in their 20s live at home, only work sporadically, are only interested in drinking with their friends, and playing X-Box all day. Guys 30 and older are usually independent, work full time, and generally have their shit together. Stability can be a major factor when it comes to being attracted to someone.

  • They likely have had some success, in their mind if only one says yes it's worth it.
    I've dated older men myself, they are way more experienced than guys my own age who either fun too quickly or have sexual problems brought on by watching too much porn.

  • How arrogant do you have to be to think you're too good for someone to ask out?
    If you're not interested just politely decline and leave it at that. Why would you go ahead and shame someone for just asking.

    • How delusional do you have to be to think that a girl young enough to be your granddaughter would want to date you? Leave it alone and find someone appropriate to your stage of life.

  • Are you sure you were not in place where those guys get girls like you exclusively?

    That description of dress style is something out of this earth, looks like they decided to come for pint after fishing weekend ( real one, not searching for...)...

    • No we're not, because we're not desperate for money. I drive a nicer car than most of them.

    • Oh i see what you`re doing here. You`re one of those LOOK AT ME, I`M BETTER THAN THE REST that of hoe. Gotcha

    • No, that's you projecting. You claimed it's easy to toss money around and impress young women, and I said it's not, because we aren't that desperate for money that we're looking for a savior.
