In my mind I call them horndogs, but to their face I say aren't you a sweet young thing because you have to give them "e" for effort. older women are in their prime at the same time they are, so do the math...... no offence young ladies (I've been there) but "the latest ring tone download for your cell" is not stimulating conversation.
I am very flattered by such attention and find the whole thing quite amusing but just exactly what labels do we give them? Much better conversations most of the times and more cultured to boot.

Some guys as I believe someone has pointed out already know that older women usually have their shit together, are done playing games, and have some damn good advice and outlook on life in general.
