-- Tokyo For those who missed it, here's the original letter I posted: Dear Carolyn: I am a dad and I just found out my daughter, 15, is seeing a man of 21.

After sleeping on it I have pretty much decided to call the police.

On the other hand, some of those same kids would somehow find their way into the college bars on the weekends, and I was paranoid I'd unwittingly end up going home with one of them, so I can see both sides.

For me, and many other women like me, it all begins with a number. Before agreeing to a set-up, as a follow-up response or even playing a flirtatious game, I always find the answer to the question, “So, how old are you? And if you don't know who the Seavers are from “Growing Pains,” then you don't stand a chance.

As much of our generation is delaying activities like marriage and procreating, we are, in effect, also prolonging its adolescence.

So if you’re only seeking women in the 21-29 age range, let me tell you, you’re missing out. And by that I mean: her own career, her own friends, her own apartment, her own money.

A 30-year-old man from Brooklyn told me these factors are what makes older women a turn on. If she hasn’t tried it herself, she’s likely considered it.

I also think I'm fairly mature for my age (great career, nice car, house, well respected in the community, etc).

So anyways, I posted a profile on a dating site just to see what would happen, and I've gotten quite a few messages.

And, unlike the 23-year-old who gets tanked and throws shade at your ex, she’s got class. I once went out with a young man from Queens who only dated older women because younger ladies, he found, couldn’t do a thing without checking in with 15 of their friends.

In fact, your ex will likely friend her on FB (like my old bf’s ex-wife did). When you date a younger woman, he said, you also date all her friends, and it’s “a pain in the fucking ass.” You can’t just go out and do your own thing because she must receive approval from a larger governing body.

Dating an older woman is quite the rage these days.
