I don't think it's unusual for people to draft back in time to days when life was so much better, and for your mother, that was probably when she was much younger and men were in fact admiring her. Apparently these bring happy memories and pleasure to her.

I would just smile, support her, ask about the men, let her tell you about them, and let her enjoy her fantasies. At 94, that might be the best recollection or fantasy she has.

Sounds like she has fun things on her mind. Does she have dementia? Do her delusions cause a problem or are they pretty harmless?
