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 this news story.
"I find younger guys will usually be totally into you while older guys will be looking over your shoulder at a younger woman," said Gail Garrison, 44, a fashion designer and former model.

"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," she said.

Mr Abelson, 27, calls it "Natural Selection Speed Date II: Sugar Mamas & Boy Toys". He came up with the idea after drawing criticism from feminists for organising an event last year that paired wealthy older men with young women.

More than 5000 men applied for a place in this year's event. Twenty finalists were selected.

"I think for men it is an incredible fantasy (to be with an older woman)," Mr Abelson said. "Older women are more experienced and they know what they want."
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 below.
