This is the most compelling reason behind why younger women might go for older men: they’re daddy substitutes. Most of them are completely creeped out at the prospect of dating a guy who was alive when JFK was alive. So like Evan is saying, the age gap may not SEEM like a problem when you’re both still young-ish. I am a 53 year old man, and am working up to compete in my first Olympic length triathlon, next year. I like Camila am filing for legal separation due to lack of performance of my 52 year old husband. Yep, I’m the older one in our relationship and while I look and feel older than we first met he is the same. Most women on this board vilify uncommitted men (commitment phobes, man-children, narcissists, etc.) with no compunction.
Only to vilify the other woman, when the MAN — who was in the relationship with you — should be one vilified. I would have commented differently had you (and Stephan and Sharon) wrote with as much anger towards the man as towards the woman. Mine left me for a younger woman as well, after putting us all through total hell for two decades with his drug addiction.
The psychologists at Abo Akademi University in Turku, Finland gathered observations from a population-based sample of more than 12,000 Finns and found that women, on average, are interested in same-aged to somewhat older men than themselves and that this pattern displays itself across the entire life-span. However, even if you were to grant that life span were that short, it would still require that men favored younger women. While I agree with your assessment about evolutionary psychology, in this case the most plausible explanation is that successful reproduction is far more dependent on a younger, healthier woman than it is on a younger man. Similarly, speculating about what young men are attracted to is pure nonsense, since we have nothing to base it on besides modern culture, so any conclusions from that quarter are rubbish.


We tend to think of cancer as being an epidemic today, but in the early 20th century not that many people died of cancer since life expectancy was about age 47 so people didn't live long enough to get cancer; people died from diseases like consumption (TB), tetanus, etc. Cancer was known to affect some young people and the "Jimmy Fund" began to raise cancer awareness in 1948. I wonder too if the psychologists considered that before the 1920s people preferred to look older than they actually were. He's MatureWhen a younger woman calls her date mature, she's not just referring to his age.
His Experience CountsWhen it comes to sex, an older male is perceived as knowing his way around the bedroom. Ready for CommitmentMany older guys have already had time to experiment and play the field. An older man’s going to be the strong, nurturing guy who takes care of her, teaches her, and treats her like a princess – the kind of relationship that she probably lacked growing up. Yes, I have to work harder to achieve my goals than a 30 year old, but I still can achieve them. She’s not a very well balanced lady and I recognize that my ex husband is not a well man but I spent decades trying to help him.
Men younger than 20 prefer women older than themselves, while men older than 30 prefer women younger than themselves. Neanderthals such as the "old man of La Chapelle-aux-Saints" were known to live as old as 40.
The young of the 1920s, on the other hand, preferred to rebel against the older generation whom they believed murdered millions of people in World War I and part of that rebellion was that people wanted to look younger.
Men who are 15 or even 20 years older can appear more confident, more stable, and even sexier than their younger counterparts. He's had to time to perfect his technique, and he can show his younger lover a good sexual time.With an older man, women don't expect any awkward moments in the dark.


And the truth is that most of them are completely creeped out at the prospect of dating a guy who was alive when JFK was alive. If he is not tire or taking s nap recovering from his 16 to 17 hours days of work, therefore is not the age that make them old and boring but their  goals and desites. And sherry, 36 was old for you but he could perform, fast forward 10 years and you probably won’t say the same.
It’s a lot easier for a man to take out a carefree, responsibility free, baggage free, wrinkle free 28-year-old, which is why so many men try to go in that direction. If you’re over the age of 40 and have ever said, “But I’m told I look five years younger than my age”, then you’re not immune to it yourself. I can take care of myself financially for now and if we stay together longer I imagine us having a similar dynamic as any younger couple where we work together not just me living off of him. But see, for men who covet younger women, it’s not whether you look good for your age – it’s what age you really are.
Dude goes through a mid life crisis, leaves wife and kids for a younger POA who makes him feel all youthful again.
Older guys may dwell less on jealousy issues and instead focus on communicating clearly with you so that there will be no misunderstandings. Women bear the brunt of the criticism regardless of whether they're on the younger or older side of the spectrum, with the cougar or gold digger labels reflecting a deeply rooted sexism that judges women's sexual activities far more often than men's are judged, said Lehmiller, who teaches at Harvard University.Given that social marginalization hurts a relationship's success, as Lehmiller's research also has found, large age gap relationships may struggle more than same-age relationships, he said. Stigma, and the social sanctions that can follow, also has been blamed for data showing that marrying a man seven to nine years younger increases a woman's mortality risk by 20 percent.
