    I have to tell this story because it almost made me puke! I was in line getting my prescription filled. A man who looked my age was in front of me, I’m in my mid 60’s. We started chatting and within 10 minutes I knew his life story lol. He was married for a long time to a woman he referred to as "an evil so and so. They divorced and he said "he wanted a younger woman who would take care of him in his older years". As this point I thought okay. Then he tells me "he found and married a younger woman and they get along great and do things together, and I was thinking "that’s great". Then he tells me "she got hurt, can’t walk now and now I’m having to take care of her and I’m not liking it one bit". The disgusted look on his face was awful. That’s when I felt like puking.

    They want young women . If they have money, many young women will marry them for life long child support and wealth.

    Who can stand to manipulate with this simpering behavior to just have a male buddy to hang out with. I think what we all need is honest community connections. We are old. We are not teenagers. If you have to pretend you never piss yourself when you cough, it’s too much work. Where are the Beta’s. They sound like good people.

    We are emasculating men nowadays. I like a manly man. Not an asshole or one who Dominates but one that is secure in his manhood—NOT his feminity!

  6. Lisa Cunningham on March 19, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Being critical and complaining are huge turn-offs. My issue is selfishness and being an empath myself, I find a lot of people are delusional. We don’t see ourselves as we truly are. You are right, Lisa, we can’t believe we are 60 or so. These men also don’t shave! Why can’t they groom themselves? Yet they want a supermodel. You are right, they seem to want a 30-something. Very true, most of us don’t know what we want, women OR men.

  7. Steve Pailet on March 19, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    More power. many thoughts given are true. At my age not looking for power play but balance. Some days you get to be the hunter some days you are the goat. No one wants to be the beta in a relationship where there is no real give and take. Was talking to an Alpha woman yesterday who was emotionally brow beating me. Guess what. RED FLAG. Men these days do look for Red Flags. I know from listening to women that they just dont get that we as men are more emotional as we get older. Slights do hurt more now than when we were in our 40s. For women who might be looking the real numbers are not in their favor. The male population is shrinking. This is just natural Demographics. The longer you live alone the chances that you desire to live with your do it your way or the highway becomes more ingrained. This is how men and women are. Stiff and less flexible on many things that never are actually very important. Who here does not appreciate small things like a kiss or hug. All this said Be nice and bite your tongue and think before opening your mouth … I am reminded from bambi. If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. People I meet tend to think I am nice because I do follow this rule. I do back up and think wow now how should I respond. To many folks just by pass this and then every one say wow that was nasty. Dont do that

    Men of all ages but particularly as we get much older, would dearly love to find a woman who takes responsibility for her own thoughts, feelings and behaviour. There is no one who makes you happy; one chooses such a response to a situation. It is the lack of accountability from women with which men have such difficulty understanding.

  10. Tianie Mitchell on March 19, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    I agree with the taken away from men a lot women don’t realize that a man needs to know that you feel that he is intelligent and capable. And if you’re asking him to do something for you and then you’d say no that’s wrong please do it this way then to him he’s hearing he is incompetent

  11. liesa scott on March 19, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    Get a lot of real good friends for good times, hugs and support. Also get a toy – or two :). It is always ready to go, doesn’t quit on you, doesn’t make you sick, doesn’t betray you, doesn’t steal your money, doesn’t kill you on your next trip to Mexico, doesn’t have toe nails YOU need to cut and doesn’t have health issues that double your concerns about real old age.
    If you want male attention put a nice dress on , wear some lipstick and a big smile and go to your next gas station. And there you will enjoy how every man between 14 ad 94 falls over himself to open the door for you and give you a happy smile. I do it all the time 🙂

  12. MrSsur1973 on March 19, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    Marsha Baker here–Alot of women stay in their masculinity all the time and forget how to be feminine. I was raised only around men, married 2 and had 3 boys and man it is hard for me to Find my feminity lol. My brother says I deal with men Like a man does not like a woman does. He’s right too!

  13. Europa 17 on March 19, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    A lot of the older ones want a nurse with a purse.

  14. Cheryl Lawlor on March 19, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Men are attracted to younger women because youth indicates fertility. Men chose women in an evolutionary sense for their youth and fertility. Men have to put a lot into providing for women and protecting them. Evolutionary speaking. They don’t want to waste time putting all the effort into an infertile woman. So they have more biologically wiring to be attracted to young women. No good putting your sperm into a basket with no eggs.

    Although men shouldn’t be procreating at their age, either, there instinct to impregnate women is their overriding instinct. If they can get a younger woman to love them. They have the best of both worlds a loving relationship and their need to be turned on by the femine form.

    I think we are fighting a losing battle ladies. The season of youth is gone. In nature ,it’s all about procreation
    in the biological hardwiring. Particularly in men who really aren’t that interested in emotionally stuff so much

  17. Tianie Mitchell on March 19, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    A hero is someone you can turn to someone you trust someone you respect man needs to feel needed otherwise they’ll feel obsolete every time they do kind honorable courteous act for you thanks him show him how much you appreciate it either, a touch and thank you a hug and thank you a kiss on the cheek and to thank you a kiss on the mouth and thank you men love attention like this not just words be demonstrative ladies

  18. Beata Pogorzelska on March 19, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    A much younger(40ish) financially independent partner, ideally childless or with adult children quite away at least .The most ideal profession-a doctor or nurse.

    if you have to work hard in a relationship then something is wrong.

  21. Bashibee Pickard on March 19, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    As an older lady once said to me, most older men want one of two things: a nurse or a purse.

  22. Tianie Mitchell on March 19, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    If you do ask him for help just let him help you and then if you feel the need to do any correcting of anyting especially Regarding cleaning do it when he is not around and thank him for what he did and tell him how much you appreciate it with a kiss or whatever and a smile and a twinkle in your eyes like sweetie I don’t know what I would do without you kisses

  23. lilstep noel on March 19, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Not every female child was raised with a man around, I wasn’t. When I needed something fixed I taught myself. I am very intimidating to my husband lol. I did let him teach me how to use the chop saw though, I was scared of it. He is a manly man or Alpha man and so many times he calls me "know it all" LOL. I forget I’m supposed to act like I’ve never learned anything in life, that’s how I’m feeling listening to this video. I mean your probably right about making them feel more manly but what about me? Do I just sit back and let him do everything I already know how to do or what?

  24. mag steel on March 19, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Some of the advice sounds a bit silly to me but I’m sure it works for some people. As a guy I would just say, we men are not your fathers, sons, girlfriends, therapists, gay friends, or direct reports. We don’t think like you do, we don’t communicate like you do, and we see the world differently. We aren’t interested in competing with you, or thrashing minutia with you. The characteristics men want in a woman have been summarized by some as "fit, feminine, and friendly", I think it’s correct.

    Honestly, i do not want to take care of anyone but me now. I am over that stage of my life. I really don’t want to be in the what do you want side of life.

  27. Amanda Hunter on March 19, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    In my experience, as a woman of nearly 60, men aged over 60 who are looking for a partner want one who will settle down and live a quiet life with them, care for them and be looked after. Whereas most women over 60 who are looking for a partner want to spend our later lives gaining new experiences and want someone to share adventures with and break from the traditional norm of relationships because we’ve usually already spent many years in traditional, caring roles.

  28. I Voted on March 19, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Good Lord! Lisa’s answer to the question at the 60 second mark is BRILLIANT in its simplicity. And the follow up commentary gives further understanding to the dynamic interplay between Men & Women.

  29. J W on March 19, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Why can’t men pursue women any more after 50? It appears to me they want the helpless women who move in quick and can be kicked out quick.

  30. Grandma jane on March 19, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    That’s true, I was in the grocery recently and there was something I wanted and couldn’t reach. There happened to be a lanky college type guy walking by and I asked him, on an impulse to get it for me. I usually don’t ask for help and I felt badly about it. But when I saw how that guy acted I could see that he felt really good about reaching that for me. He looked really happy when he walked away. Idid it to a young guy in the parking lot of the Dollar store once. I was stuck with the empty wagon at my car and I can barely walk. I yelled out to this guy who was going in the store and asked him if he would take my wagon. His face broke out into a big grin and I thanked him profusely.. But I wouldn’t recommend doing these things if you are not an old grandma type like me. Who knows a guy might say "do it yourself lady". Can’t be sure these days!

  31. Sherion Bowers on March 19, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    What about the difference if the man is younger than the woman she’s 70 doesn’t look that age she looks in her 50s and he is 53 17 years between them whats the answer.

  32. Stewart Mckay on March 19, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Run every man for himself.

  33. Lori J H on March 19, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Your expert guest was totally correct! That is exactly what men want in a woman. Women’s Lib did a disservice to both women and men because they bashed men and emasculated them to get power for women. Anytime you gain power at another person’s expense, it is ultimately defeating and wrong. Men want to be respected and when their not, they crumble and the society crumbles. This is a basic concept for mankind’s societal structure. Advances in society happen best when groups of people aren’t trampled over to gain power, but worked with others to develop steady changes that will last. Ty.

  36. xys007 on March 19, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    What do men over 60 really want? It is simple. Because men don”t grow up they just want 18teens all the time! That’s why "toxic" patriarchy invented something called a marriage. Strange thing, it make it make man legally bound to a woman whom he might not desire any more. And then feminism happened … and now we have 60+ years old women in a dating scene … good luck with it …

  37. Rosemary Harper on March 19, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    I stopped trying to date, when I turned 65I just turned 73.

    look at your passions, the hobbies that you each enjoy, make sure you have plenty you can share, you don’t find a mate so you can each do your thing, you do it to have someone to do things with that will enhance the passions you already have – and it many cases you will learn new passions by trying something new your partner loves to do, make sure the foundations are similar, and don’t be bossy ever, us older men do not need mothering

    here are some clues ladies to what a man likes. have you ever noticed how a man looks after his shiny fast car. he’s always talking about it, he sings its prases, to everyone he meets. he spends his money on it, lots of money on it, he loves it, it gives him satisfaction, it pleases him, it’s there for him, day and night, wind, snow, or rain, it never complains. and because he is happy to own a shiny fast car he will be happy to look after it. it never lets him down. whatever mood he is in. also it never asks to tick countless boxes before you can drive it. and never gives you an ultimatum. you become inseparable. sorry if this offended you. but a man will apply the analogy of the car to a relationship. so sad isn’t it, BUT TRUE

  46. Sydney Kasmar on March 19, 2022 at 11:01 pm

  47. Caroline Ford on March 19, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    I would love to start dating but I recently lost all my money. I own my own home but am unable to work in the short term. Although this frees up my time to focus on dating, but men understandably expect us to pay for ourselves after at least a few dates which I cannot do. Also – I hv found that they want a woman with earning capacity. Should I give up and avoid the humiliation?

  48. Anne LW on March 19, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Older men want younger women to make them feel young and stud-like. They look at older women and it makes them feel older. They just don’t get it.
