So, after hiring me as his dating coach, we set to work in rebranding him on We had Tom fill out my long questionnaire and submit to an hour of questions from me on the phone.
You can see what a great experience it was in this CBS Early Show clip: What I haven’t yet mentioned is that Tom Pandolfo is 5’3″.
To see if the women would go for short guys who were successful, ABCNEWS’ Lynn Sherr created extraordinary résumés for the shorter men. Sherr asked whether there’d be anything she could say that would make the shortest of the men, who was 5 feet, irresistible. And although you can feel free to substitute “older women”, “older men”, “heavier women”, or “Asian men”, I honestly feel that nobody gets a rawer deal than short guys.
She told the women that the shorter men included a doctor, a best-selling author, a champion skier, a venture capitalist who’d made millions by the age of 25. One of the women replied, “Maybe the only thing you could say is that the other four are murderers.” Another backed her up, saying that had the taller men had a criminal record she might have been swayed to choose a shorter man. Honestly, ladies…You can get your own dishes from the top shelf.
It’s quite common to see older men and younger women dating in this country and all over the world.
You might even say Western men are better able to maintain their desire for younger women in a way that isn’t as pedophilic as others.
I stayed married to my husband for seven years, and by the time our relationship ended, I saw our age difference in a completely different way.
We called it the “Grown Men in 2010” challenge, and endeavored to meet as many men at least ten years older than us, but not old enough to be our fathers, as we could.
After about a year of this nonsense, I learned that dating the grown and sexy is just not for me, for six good reasons: 1. I dated Steve, 41, and he was a fun guy, but half of what came out of his mouth seemed like it was from a outtake.
Now that I’m single in my 30’s, I really only want to date guys very close to my age.
Less than a handful of years younger would be okay, and maybe one or two years older, but that’s about it.
