We get a lot of advice questions coming in at EMandLO.com, but sadly, we just can’t answer them all. Which is why, once a week, we turn to you to decide how best to advise a reader. You can leave your advice in the comments section below.
Dear Em & Lo,
Ever since I’ve turned 35, I’ve been getting a LOT of attention from guys 25 and under. Should I be flattered because, as I’ve been told, I “give off confident sexy older woman vibes”? Or horrified that an older woman is just something on their “to do” list? What is the real appeal of an older woman?

What do you have to say to Accidental Cougar? Is this attention personal, or just a matter of guys wanting to check off a box? And what is the age-old appeal of an older woman?
