Older Women, Younger Men
New Options for Love and Romance
by Felicia Brings and Susan Winter
It's out there—in the press, on the Internet and emblazoned on the glossiest magazine covers: Romance Rule Breaker, the union of older women and younger men!
Everyone wants to have a nurturing, happy union with a spouse or loved one, but there is an enormous population of older, single, divorced or widowed women, especially baby-boomers, who are frustrated repeatedly in their attempts to find appropriate mates. Because of prevailing negative stereotypes and despite such high profile unions as Joan Collins and Robin Hurlstone, Mary Tyler Moore and Dr. Robert Levine, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, most older women have never been open to finding a mate from the pool of younger men. This book opens their eyes to that possibility and updates mature women's criteria and expands their range of choices.
In this provocative, groundbreaking guide, over 200 people of older women/younger men couplings from different walks of life, countries, races, cultures and backgrounds share their stories that run the gamut from humor to human interest to candidly sexual. Older Women, Younger Men is a comprehensive, sometimes wildly amusing, how-to manual delivered with large doses of empowerment to help make the brave new world of relationship potential between older women and younger men lead to lasting love.
