Advice dating older women
For their part, the men like the sophistication and life success of their older mates, she explains.The much touted idea that women peak sexually in their 30s and men in their teens does not enter into it -- most of these couples are beyond both those age periods.They were introduced by Sutherland’s sister, who was one of Wipp’s law school classmates, at a beachside barbecue.Wipp was immediately attracted to Sutherland’s youthful energy, which was a far cry from the cynical guys closer to her age.“I love that she loves me so much, and that I mean a lot to her,” says Sutherland.“I can tell because she always makes me feel wanted.” Alan Angal, 36, was attracted to his older fiancée, Jennifer Siegner, 45, for her stability.The women like the flexibility and sense of adventure of their more spontaneous, younger companions, Tina B.Tessina, Ph D, a licensed family therapist in practice in Long Beach, Calif., and author of The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again, tells Web MD.
“I always knew where I stood with her.” Soon after they met, he cleaned up his act and left the entertainment industry.
“She’s just a unique woman, and there’s nobody like her,” Angal says.
Siegner says they bring out the best in each other.
“Everybody thought this was a little phase, that I was just having a crisis.” But friends and family came around to accepting the couple after they’d been dating for a year and it became clear that Sutherland had serious intentions.
In April 2010, they had an intimate beachside wedding in Hawaii, and they now have a 6-year-old son, Marek.“Older men tend to become cruel over time, and [Marcus] was so refreshing,” Wipp, who lives in Detroit, tells The Post.
