Old guys aren't my thing, but every time I ask my 30-something boyfriend to talk seriously about our future or shuffle through his apartment that has empty pizza boxes stacked on the dining room table, I can see the advantages of having had someone else remove the training wheels. "From an early age I just found older men to seem reliable and supportive. Bush (he was president at the time) was the most handsome man in the world.Megan dates older men because, as she says, they are men. It's exhausting."

Old men are polite and thoughtful and young guys are generally self-centered." Megan is so passionate about dating older that she made me a list (a good one) of the five reasons that dating men in their sixties is just preferable to dating men in their twenties and thirties and why we should all stop judging her for it.
