Weirded out

Let me start by saying that I’m a youngish senior woman. In my younger days I had no shortage of male attention. But I am a senior now and I think that I look it. So when I get male attention now it weirds me out, especially when the male in question is a LOT younger than me. Mostly I just think they’re confused or that I’m imagining it. But yesterday I’m pretty sure that I wasn’t imagining this guy who was at least 25-30 years younger than me following me around the grocery store. To be sure I wasn’t imagining it I wandered all over the place randomly. Everywhere I went he was right there. I thought maybe he was security and thought I was stealing, but there were a couple of instances where we accidentally (or was it?) bumped into each other and there was laughing and eye contact, so I think he was actually following me. It’s been so long (about 1 1/2 years at least) since I’ve been with anyone and I’m not expecting that I ever will be again, but now I’m wondering if I look as bad as I think I do or if I’m completely crazy! I’ve always been terrible at knowing when a man is interested in me or flirting. I take everyone at face value and I’m completely clueless when it comes to flirting of any kind. But I definitely did have a lot of younger men (like 20 years younger sometimes) hitting on me when I was a lot younger than I am now, so is it even possible still? Are there really young men out there who are actually attracted to much older women? I’m seriously asking because I’m weirded out by it.

I am a man

I am attracted to a woman and at one point she texted me and told me she was 54, as a way of deterring my interest, I have to presume. Many people think I am forty. I replied that I think 54 is a fantastic age, there was no reply for awhile, I texted back telling her I am 56.

Maybe he wasn't as young as you think?

No offence, but maybe you're just taking yourself too seriously, and maybe you're just a little neurotic? The local culture produces some of the most neurotic people I've ever met in my 50 + years on this planet.

You might be in your golden years, but your plumbing likely still works the same as before.

Following you around the store is...on the suspicious side...He could be looking for a sugar momma you never know. Keep your wits and your wallet about you, tread carefully. The majority of men that age + are vocal about seeking women in their 20s.

You honestly sound like you are a very attractive prospect. It's just that the attention you have experienced in the past is going to be toned down somewhat. That doesn't mean that there is nothing there.

You probably are attracting these types. So don't worry about it if you are able to. You are still attracting the attention of the opposite sex.

I write as a man who is older than some of the females who are attracted to me. Its like a chemical reaction. Just don't expect anything to last.

I guess I should have mentioned that I’m completely uninterested in dating anyone right now, and I’ve never been into younger guys. I don’t think I’m taking myself too seriously because it was just a strange situation and it confused me because it did seem like it was deliberate on his part. I don’t see myself as being desirable anymore so when a man acts like he’s flirting with me I don’t know how to take it and my instinct is to assume that I’m imagining it. Neurotic? Lol possibly : )

I have a cousin that prefers older women. I've found myself to be attracted on the odd occasion. Some women age quite well. Jane Seymour comes to mind.
