I have to say that women are critical of sugar babies. As a man of a certain age who dated women younger than my age I made certain observations while those dates were happening. While walking around with these various women I noticed the intense looks we were getting from women. These looks happened when I was out with women a lot younger than myself. I only been out with a handful of such individuals by the way but noticed ‘the look’ anyway. In one case, I was being observed by a group of 3 women in their 30’s who followed my every action and body language while I was out with an Asian lady of 23. They were trying to figure out what was going on I guess and they were observing my every move or smile and interaction with her. In another case while sitting at a restaurant with the same lady we got the same exact reaction. Which is kind of fair I guess. I remember being in a steakhouse in Texas with work colleagues and on the way out I saw this young Asian woman practically sitting on the lap of this 55 year old guy. I didn’t gawk at them, but it was something I noted and giggled on the inside.
In another case, with Alex, there was this woman in her 50’s who was walking around with her husband at night and came across us, also walking around. As we were passing them she kept giving us (especially Alex) these dagger like looks. She even turned her head around and stared at us. I think she was thinking ‘You bad young woman seducing our husbands, how dare you!’. Or something to that effect.
Which brings me to my point. Throughout all of of my experiences I have found that men are more accepting of this whenever they encounter non traditional couples. They tend to give a knowing wink or smile to the situation at hand. Women however have either one of two reactions, at least as far as what I have observed:
1. The younger ones may giggle or just look with curiosity
2. Those that are 40’s or older may be be critical and have generally given my date unapproving looks
What has been your (SD and SB) experience with this?
