Older men, it seems to me, are like gold dust on the dating scene right now.From salt-and-pepper George Clooneys to silver-fox Harrison Fords, young women are swooning over smooth older men more than ever.According to a survey by dating website Elite Singles, 20-something men actually have a preference for older women three to six years older than themselves.The biological theory has always been men prefer younger women because they are likely to bear more children, while women prefer older men because they offer resources and stability.The rejection was devastating until a bright light named Stephanie joined my high school as a freshman.Stephanie was Karen’s younger sister and she was hot!A common rule of thumb when it comes to dating is that it’s OK to be interested in someone who is half your age, plus seven years.However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.
For one semester, Stephanie and I had a frolicking good time.

If you really like her, just go with the flow and be yourself, regardless of whether “yourself” is a silly, dorky, immature 57-year old or a wise and mature 24.
