What do Single Men Over 60 Really Want? This Dating Coachs Advice Will Surprise You! (Video)
What do men over 60 want? For women who have been trying to find that illusive special someone for a while, this may seem like an impossible question to answer. After all, for most of our lives, men were simple creatures. Now, as we reach our 50s and 60s, the situation is somewhat more complicated.
To get a view into the male mind after 60, I sat down with dating coach, Lisa Copeland for a quick chat.Lisa Copelandis a fabulous woman, with a passion for helping women to find quality men. If you have you have ever noticed that older men are unlikely to make eye contact with your or have felt completely ignored at a dance or party, Lisa thinks she knows why.
In our interview, I asked Lisa this question directly and she gave me a simple answer. Single men in their 60s are looking for a woman who is feminine and is willing to help them feel like a man. Many women, including myself, spent most of their lives competing with men at work, in social situations and even at home.
Now, as we reach our 60s, its difficult to put our swords down and just relax a bit. According to Lisa, single men over 60 want women who are in touch with their feminine side. They want encouragement, not criticism. They need confirmation, not competition.
Lisa and I also discuss the perception that men only want to date younger women. Lisa mentions that this is often the case, but, not for the reasons that many of us assume. Men are not always looking for a younger body to cuddle up next to. More important is that fact that younger women are more willing to show their feminine side to win a mans heart.
Of course, they dont have our experience, or our battle scars for that matter, but, this is beside the point. Lisa argues that, if we can connect with our feminine side, we can find a quality man, regardless of who we are competing with.
Lisa is a straight shooter. You may not agree with her on every point. Or, you may decide that she is right, but, that finding a partner is just not worth the trouble. But, I promise you that her opinions come from interactions with 100s of older women, just like you. As a result, she knows what shes saying, even if her advice is not always pleasant to hear.

Ego more than anything. Plus have you noticed in movies nowadays they have older men with women 30 years younger? God forbid that Kevin Costner or Bruce Willis costars would be 62.
No he just has sense and is satisfied with what he has. You are fortunate.thirty eight years into married life my husband and I divorced. I got old. Lmao
Dont know. Dont really want to know. Sorry. My DH is 15 years younger than I am and is really open and young at heart. Im content with him and his love for me even if Im aging. Last July 17th, we celebrated our 18th year of being a couple.
Thanks Patricia Rezzonico I am really just trying to understand what exactly older women think older men want you are agreeing with others that it is all about ego!
Because many men are shallow. They want to bring young women with smooth faces and skin to bed with them. It makes them feel powerfulmore desirable, as men are basically shallow and insecure.
So they can pretend they are still young studs!
I must take issue with this article. Its like reading an article in an old Seventeen magazine, telling us young girls how to snag that boy in history class. Have you issued an article about what single women over 60 really want? Ive spent my life being independent and taking care of myself, and if a strong independent woman isnt feminine enough for a man over 60, too bad for him.
Its their loss if they are not wanting to date women over 60. Again, why are WE the ones who have to make the sacrifices? Bottom line, there might be quantity, but theres no quality!
Well, a lot of very young women are overweight, also!
To feel young again and boost their egos and sex life.
I went on those dating sites and thats what they tell you they are looking for and I asked why are you on a site for seniors. Duh
At 89, my dad married a beautiful 86 yr. old woman for love. Hes leaving her half of his estate. Hope springs eternal.
I think some older women are either bitter or needy!
Put on your big girl panties give yourself a makeover and tell yourself life is great I dont need a man in my life!
Then be open get involved go online and I think you will find a partner!
Men want a younger woman (private nurse). As for money, his will has been already dealt with prior to the nurse appearing on the scene. Why would a healthy woman want a man at this time of her life? Go enjoy yourself. Why do you need to answer to someone? Get a life! Stay single, motivated, and have fun.
As a woman who has been married for 38 years, I have asked myself my husband this question. I feel like a man that wants a younger woman is; it makes him seem/appear younger. I would say that most women who are with older men are in it for the money, status, etc. Ive asked my husband if he would go for a much younger woman his answer to me is no~he doesnt want to have to go through the nonsense again! Do you think hes trying to appease me? Hah!
Some might want some eye candy on their arm but I think a lot of men hope that someone younger will be able to care for them as they age better.
you could be right.. I have widow on my profile.. got a lot of men of every age wanting to meet me I think, theyre maybe hoping theres a big life insurance policy with deal
Maybe because a lot of older women gain weight and let themselves go?
Boosts their ego and perhaps they think it will make them more vigarous as they think the older woman will say not tonight dear Ive got a headache how wrong and patronising can they be ??!! Look at me Im 65 smart and attractive and not past it by any means !!
They are definitely looking for younger women. Ive been told twice in my mid-fifties that nobody wants you; they want the younger women. and I was fairly attractive.
They are looking for younger women or older women with money, in my experience. I will continue to be happy on my own.
Cant comment. I am 62 and my husband is 50. Together for 18 years. So not all men want younger women(perhaps he will when he is 60 and Im 72!!!!!:)) Thats another whole discussion!!!
No some are looking for older rich women
