We all have a type when it comes to the dating department. Whether you’ve got a thing for women with a quirky dress sense and short hair or guys with beards and impressive Instagram pages. But few people in the world can say they’re addicted to dating people three times their age.
One of the rare exceptions to this role is 33-year-old Kyle Jones of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who is a self-confessed addict to much older women. He appeared on an episode of TLC’s My Strange Addiction to explain what it was like to date women old enough to be his grandma.
Check out the video below for a fascinating insight into his unusual love life:
“I love everything about older women. I love the smell, I love the feel, I love the mentality,” he says enthusiastically in a preview of the show.
“I love dentures. Women can be self-conscious about dentures. Ladies, I promise you, telling your man that you have dentures will not turn him off,” he revealed. “It’ll put a smile on his face. It’ll put a smile on his pants.”
Despite his fondness for older women, however, one of Kyle’s friends was determined to show him the charms that younger ladies had to offer by setting him up on a blind date with the woman pictured below, Candace.
Sadly, all he did was ask for her grandma’s number.
Although there are a number of names for attractive older women in popular culture such as “MILF” (or “GILF”) and “cougar”, Kyle prefers to refer the women in his life (yes, he dates more than one grandma at a time) as “silver foxes”. He does this because he’s turned on by grey hair.
