Understanding Men Over 50

There’s a myth that all older men want younger women. What do you think?

I think many men do want younger women at first. They find over time that they don’t share a history. Also a lot of younger women don’t want to date their dad!

What are men over 50 looking for in a woman?

Men over fifty are in a phase of male menopause like women go through. They evaluate what they want next. They want a woman they can make happy. They want to support her and have fun and companionship. They’ll only do what they want to do. They want a true partner. They’re more chivalrous. We need to ask for what we want in a way a man can hear.

What are some ways women and men can improve their communication with each other?

Women love to process things that happen. Men are not as detail oriented. They don’t need to discuss and feel those emotions. 

He’ll glaze over when you talk about other people. Say, “Can I share a story with you? It’ll be less than five minutes.” Let him know how he can support you.

Men are single focused and we are multi focused. Men needed to be single focused to hunt, and women sat around the campfire and talked to keep the animals away. That’s our sense of community. 

Don’t share anything important when he’s focused on a task. 

If you really need his help, “I’m sorry to interrupt you, but I need your attention right now.”

Many women struggle with being able to accept help from a man. What are your thoughts about that?

Women come from a place of community, and men come from a place of being your hero. Ask a man for help by saying, “I need your help”, which triggers what will make a woman happy. 

Thank and appreciate him for his support. 

In what ways do so many women unconsciously emasculate men?

A big one is when you try to control his way of doing things. He thinks you don’t trust him. Let him do things his way, and don’t pick on every little thing.

Another one is treating a man like a child, as if you know what’s best for him. Criticism is emasculating. He’s doing the best he can do.

Trust and respect is another thing. They feel it by how you treat them. If you don’t trust and respect, leave him.

If you ask for his opinion, take it or don’t ask. When you ignore him, it’s like slapping him in the face.

What are your final words of advice for anyone who wants to go on their last first date?

Don’t fall in love with the potential of a man, fall in love with who he is. If you can understand men and get the language down, men will adore you. He’ll be there to help support you so you don’t have to do it all yourself. It’s powerful work!
