A middle-aged man has brought an interesting conversation to the table after claiming he prefers to have intimate relationships with older women, rather than the twenty-somethings many men chase.
Nirpal Dhaliwal, 44, says he’s not interested in younger women in the slightest and instead has a strong attraction for females who are at least the same age, or even older than him.
Detailing his reasoning in The Telegraph, Dhaliwal said he finds the experience of older women alluring and relationships with women even 20 years older than him to be “thrilling”.
In fact, the writer claimed his most significant relationship to date was with a woman he met when he was 26 years old and she 42. They married but divorced some years later. Despite his failed marriage, Dhaliwal doesn’t seem to have lost his appetite for older women and admitted he loves being the “plaything” of ladies who are older than him and is captivated by their “extraordinary bodies”.
“Having endured so much bad sex with men of their own generation, they were determined to get what they required. I became something like a protege, receiving a splendid education from each,” he wrote.
However, it isn’t just about the physical side of things for Dhaliwal, who said older women provide an exciting experience, sexually, culturally, socially and intellectually.
“I don’t pine for twenty-somethings. The intelligence, empathy, humour and scintillating conversation offered by a woman who’s lived is more important. Women who don’t excite my mind don’t keep me physically interested,” he added.
However, a problem has arisen for Dhaliwal, who is yet to father any children. Unfortunately the women he is attracted to can no longer fall pregnant, meaning if he wants kids, he will have to enter a relationship with someone younger, something he says has previously never tickled his fancy.
His comments come in response to French author Yann Moix who sparked outrage earlier this month after he claimed he’s incapable of loving a woman over the age of 50.
Moix – who is 50 – made the comments to the French edition of Marie Claire while promoting his new book, Rompre. When asked if he would consider dating a woman the same age as him, he said it wasn’t possible, noting 50-year-old women were “too old” for him to fall in love with.
He claimed older women were “invisible” to him, before explaining the kind of woman he’s attracted to.
“I prefer younger women’s bodies, that’s all,” he told the publication, according to The Guardian. “The body of a 25-year-old woman is extraordinary. The body of a woman of 50 is not extraordinary at all.”
Moix received quite a lot of criticism for his words with many men and women taking to social media to express their outrage.
One woman on Twitter wrote: “Yann Moix is quite presumptuous to think any woman is interested in him, whatever age she is.”
Another said: “Women over 50 who have just learned they will never feel the loving caress of Yann Moix are breathing a collective sigh of relief at the bullet they’ve dodged.”
A third comment simply read: “He confuses lust with love.”
