One grandma has recently decided to online date but she is not dating in her age range but far, far below it.
In fact, 83-year-old Hattie Retroage only dates young men.
The New Yorker, who was married for over 25 years to her ex-husband, shared how their sex life was wonderful but she missed the intimacy of casual dating.
Hattie, a mother of two, shares:
“Younger men, they get off on getting a woman off – very different from when I was younger. I screw, I sleep with, I make love with many men and not one of them has said, ‘I want you for my life’.”
Hattie shares that people often call her a “cougar” but want folks to give a new perspective to her lifestyle.
“Cougars, as I see them, are not beasts of prey, they are an exquisite animal. I’m never on the prowl. I never approach a man, men always approach me.”
Hattie shares how she has a quite the roster of lovers that she has connected with via dating apps like Tinder.
Since she started using the app, she shares she has met over 50 men.
Her Tinder bio says: “Hattie, 83, fascinating older beauty.”
“Seeking a steady younger friend/lover for a shared life of adventure and passion. No pro-Trump and no players.”
Hattie says the youngest man she has been with was aged 19 but says that she did believe he was older at the time.
Hattie is now dating a man named Shaun, 33, which comes out to 50 years her junior.
After Hattie separated from her ex-husband, she put an advertisement in the local newspaper to find a younger man to sleep with.
Long story short, it did not take long for Hattie to get quite the long list of potential gentlemen.
A year later, she has nothing but good things to share:
“I’m not agonising. I’m grateful that at this age and this stage that I have as many lovers as I want. My life goal is to change the awful, decrepit view of ageing – view and experience, and turn it into something exciting. A life-loving adventure. The depth of life, you can’t avoid it. But the shallowness of good sex, that’s what is good enough for me.”
