What men look for is different

Let this spark all of the debates about gender roles, societal expectations, and misogyny that it will, but these are just the facts. While a lot of men in these older age groups think it’s their job to present what they can financially offer, those same men do not look at what women have. They’re more concerned with personality in regards to how a woman would be as a companion. Hoffman says, “That’s how men attract women but men are not interested in that. He’s interested in what you bring to the table. He doesn’t care about your stuff.  When you’re in your 50s, your social circle is pretty set. Your hobbies are set. You may have already had a family. You’re in a different phase of life that’s more experiential so I have to get people to lean into that.”
