Well I wouldnít be so close minded about older women Don! It hasnít been deliberate but every man but one that Iíve dated since my divorce have been younger. And at least up to ten years younger, my age has been a complete nonfactor. (20 years younger was a different matter, but even then was about different places in life, not an issue with attraction or compatibility otherwise).
In fact an older woman might just be less interested in a relationship and more likely to be happy being a FWB cruise partner. Just a thought.
