Do any other older ladies (40ish) find the double standard of not being able to date down in age ridiculous? (self.AskWomen)

I don't understand how this double standard exists. It's absurd we get labeled with the "old maid" or "spinster" titles. Apparently it's fine for older men to date hot twenty somethings and society gives them a slap on the back and tells them "good job!" and yet I've somehow "lost dating value" the past decade. Years ago it was so easy to line up dates and it's gotten so hard now, it's enraging me.
I'm 39 and I'm finding it impossible to get a guy under 30 to stay with me. Sex is even worse; I sure I can find a young guy receptive to sex but I end up being used by these guys and they just dispose of me. I've had it with one night stands and I don't won't to be looked at as a sex toy anymore.
And no, I'm not attracted to older men at all.I do not find bald wrinkly men that resemble my father handsome. My tastes in men haven't changed in ten years.
