AFF 2011: Emanuel Ungaro A/W 2011 - Backstage and CatwalkYou’re in your fifties, but you only look forty. But what do men really think about your age?

I want to ask you a question: Do you feel like your age reduces the number of men you can date?

I know when I ask men this question, some will say, “Hell man. I’m 62 years old, but if I could date any age, I’d be dating 20 year old girls.” I have found that women aren’t as confident. But here’s the thing: Age is just a number and it means absolutely nothing. Your age certainly shouldn’t make you eliminate a potential date before you even talk to them.

Here’s an example. A woman named Marie emailed me the other day. She told me she has a crush on a guy who works in the same office as her, and he’s in his thirties. The trouble is, Marie is terrified of making any sort of move on him. In fact, no matter how much she likes him, and even though he obviously flirts with her, she is scared her age will put him off. But she’s only in her forties! She won’t even attempt to connect with this guy romantically because she’s a little older than he is. So instead of enjoying herself, and enjoying having fun with this man, she’s eliminated herself because SHE decided the age gap would put him off.
