A third commented: ‘Omg this woman is amazing, she says exactly how it is! You go girl.’
Hattie has been dating for over 30-years, and before the advent of phone apps she used newspaper adverts to lure in potential suitors, after she split from her husband of 25-years at the age of 55.
The cougar admitted that although she wouldn’t be adverse to a long term partner, she’s had a ‘heartectomy’ meaning she’s completely separated her sex-life from her emotions.
She revealed that she’s never had an affair, always practices safe sex, and feels younger men are keen to ‘satisfy an older woman’
She said: ‘Of course I practice safe sex and of course I would want him to say “Hattie I want to be with you”
‘My former husband said that but since that isn’t happening I did create a new word and it’s called a heartectomy and that is separating my heart from my privates.’
The former dance teacher insisted that she doesn’t just date anyone, and is ‘very particular’ about which of the ‘young and handsome’ men she goes to bed with.
The former dance teacher has been single since her divorce over 30-years ago and has two children and three grandchildren
She said: ‘Well initially one would think that because of my advanced age I would be open to anyone young and handsome who is interested but it doesn’t work that way.
‘I have the first dibs on whether I want to be with that man.
‘Men can be attracted and desire many women. Me, I’m very particular about who I want to go to bed with.’
Explaining how her single life began, she revealed that after joining the dating scene following 25-years of marriage she decided to start ‘dating like a man’.
More viewers celebrated Hattie, with one praising her ‘great attitude’ towards sex
She said: ‘I would love to have one man, I was married 25-years we had wonderful sex, we were in love, we had a family.
‘When the children went off to college, the dynamic changed. So I went out into the world and thought I’d meet one man.
‘But I didn’t meet one man. I’d meet someone sleep with them and then they’d leave, so I decided i’m gonna date like a man i’m going to date several men.’
More users took to social media to celebrate the grandmother with one telling her to ‘go get it girl’ and another urging her to carry on ‘enjoying herself’.
