London-based Dawn Cousins is a 44-year-old mom of four who firmly believes she can’t find love because of how attractive she is.
Dawn, who works as a receptionist, has four children: 17-year-old twins, a 20-year-old, and a 22-year-old.
People constantly tell Dawn she looks decades younger than she is, and even her kids’ friends have crushes on her. Often, people even think that Dawn is just another one of the siblings, not the kids’ mother!
In 2003, Dawn and her partner of four years split up. Ever since then, she’s been trying to find love again.
In the 14 years that have passed, though, she’s been disappointed in her options. According to Dawn, people who are her age are too old and boring, while people who look her age are too immature.
Although Dawn says men are always drooling over her, she hasn’t been able to find any real romance or love, just lust.
“I can’t date a fat, unattractive, old-aged man when I look so young and beautiful,” Dawn told The Sun.
Even though Dawn Cousins is 44 years old, she looks and feels much younger.
In an interview with The Sun, Dawn said, “The thing is I look half my age and I have men drooling over me all the time, aged from 18 to ancient.”
Dawn originally thought that looking young was a blessing, but now she sees it as a curse.
She thinks that her youthful looks are keeping her from finding a suitable mate.
“I sometimes wish I didn’t look so good,” Dawn told The Sun. “Then I might attract the right kind of man I could spend my life with.”
Dawn says she always gets attention from men who only care about her looks and not her personality.
However, Dawn says people her age just aren’t cutting it anymore.
She explained: “Guys over 40 are all putting on weight and the women have got a lot of wrinkles. I haven’t got any. I’m not in the same bracket as them.”
Dawn has been looking for love since her last significant relationship ended 14 years ago, but she hasn’t found Mr. Right yet.
“I need to find my knight in shining armor — or at least a man who isn’t so fat he could fit in,” Dawn explained.
Dawn’s kids always have to tell their friends that Dawn is their mom, not their sister.
“My daughter’s friends even hit on me; some of them try it on with me because they think I’m a sister and some just fancy me,” Dawn said.
Since men always think Dawn is in her 20s, she sometimes even tells them that she’s 25.
She’s considered dating younger men, but she’s found that they’re not really ready for the type of commitment she’s looking for.
On the other hand, when she’s specifically looked to date men over 40 (on dating websites, usually), she’s been equally disappointed.
“The guys were terrible,” she said, “and I look too good to date men in their 40s when I look like I’m in my 20s.”
Now, the mom of four is thinking about moving to the United States to look for love.
Hopefully, Dawn will be able to find the man of her dreams sometime soon.
