DISCLAIMER: While there are men like this out there, not all men want this type of relationship!
When reading Is There Still Sex in the City by Candace Bushnell I was struck by how real the characters seemed, especially the guy I call Mr. SUPER SHALLOW, because he’s 75 (says he’s 68), dates decades younger, and doesn’t care if the women he sleeps with are even attracted to him.
He just wants sex. I was struck by this character because I know this type of man exists, and have seen him in my career as a dating coach and matchmaker. For some men, relationships are just transactional.
Thankfully all men aren’t like this. I used this example in Bushnell’s 📖 book during a talk I gave this weekend called “A Day in the Life of Your Next Protagonist,” speaking before the Romance Writers of America, who wanted to know what a day in the life of a love 💝 expert looks 👀 like.
