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. It's exhausting."Megan can actually date her attraction to silver foxes back to childhood and a certain ex-President from the late 1980s/early 1990s: "I think this is all George H. In middle school we had an assignment to write a letter to a famous person. The rest of my sixth grade class felt this way about Donnie Wahlberg.
Megan dates older men because, as she says, they are men."It's not for everyone but I prefer to be with a man that has already conquered his world and wants to enjoy the rest of his life," she told me. Donnie seemed like a loose cannon, much too unpredictable.

A man in his sixties is not going to wait five years or even two to commit.He did all of this without any hints or prodding on my part.The bullshit factor dramatically declines as the years of their age rise.3.
