Why It Pays More to Man-Hunt in the Summer

Sum­mer is a great time for a new romance to blos­som. If you’re the kind of woman who likes to be swept off her feet on a date, then sum­mer is the per­fect time to get out there and join the dat­ing game.

When try­ing to reel in a new sugar daddy, don’t be sur­prised if he’s a lit­tle more gen­er­ous in the warmer months. Accord­ing to a recent sur­vey con­ducted by a dat­ing web site, 64% of sin­gle men admit that that they tend to spend more money in the sum­mer to impress a woman they’re dating.

Con­trary to pop­u­lar belief, money isn’t always the dri­ving force behind why younger women pre­fer older men. Finan­cial sta­bil­ity is appeal­ing for younger women dat­ing older men, but not all women are influ­enced just by money. In fact, 72% of sin­gle women who took the same sur­vey said that they have been on suc­cess­ful dates that involved a free activ­ity, and 68% said that they actu­ally pre­fer a less expen­sive date.

What do you think: If you started dat­ing a much older man, would you want him to go all out and splurge on your dates, or would you pre­fer some­thing fun but more low-key and inexpensive?

About Francine K

I first met Alfred when I was 38 and he was 63, on an Internet chat site. I really didn't think this was a datable person, but a wonderful friendship developed. We became chat buddies for a while and connected so well on so many levels, we decided to meet in person. We live 100 miles apart, but that has never gotten in the way of us spending time together. A passionate relationship soon grew, and oh what an amazing lover. I had some reservations about getting too involved: our age difference is 25 years, and we are in different phases in our lives; in fact he has a daughter who is older than I am. I have 2 teenage sons, a career, was building my first home, and he’s retired, owns his home, lives alone, takes a nap during the day, and enjoys a slow-paced lifestyle. I am still ambitious and will soon have the empty nest to go start my own life, as my sons are nearly independent. There is no way I want to sit down and have a retired lifestyle yet. We’ve shared a beautiful, passionate friendship for many years together. We’ve never really figured out how to plan a future together, though.
