Speed Dating: Rich Older Women Seek Boy Toys

A speed dating event called Natural Selection Speed Date II: Sugar Mamas & Boy Toys attempted to match attractive young men with rich older women. Some twenty guys were selected at the event according to a story in The Age. The twenty men were selected from over 5,000 men who applied for the speed dating event.

Gail Garrison, a 44-year-old fashion designer, told The Age, "Younger men expect an older woman to be more accomplished. They are looking for you because you are intelligent. They are not looking for a mother."

The rich older women pared the 5,000 men down to just twenty. These women only want the best - it's not easy finding a rich woman even if you are a boy toy. The event was organized by Pocket Change NY. You can see a bit more about how things went in this Reuters video.
