Now that I've accepted the fact that age doesn't matter all that much after 40 in terms of who one hooks up with, I've been getting in shape for that inevitable moment when someone walks into my life who is five, 10, even 15 years younger than me.
I'm a 40-something-year-old, happily divorced woman. And I've found that a woman in my physical, social and sometimes financial position is attractive to the 20- and 30-something-year-old male who professes to have grown tired of "needy" 20-something females.
The tone of his texts changed. He said it wasn't the same without me -- we had several exchanges -- we were flirting. At least I thought we were, but could a 28-year-old man be attracted to a 50-year-old woman?
