Do guys like dating younger women Adultchat 99
Is young women’s attraction to older men nature, nurture or a combination of the two?
‘It is funny that you contacted me about this when you did’ she says, ‘last weekend I met some friends from college and I realised that we were all married to older men.
Most of us had husbands about three to four years older, but some of us had husbands that were ten years older.
So, from a personal perspective, it is intriguing’.
Is this what attracted her to him in the first place?
A young woman dating an older man is often romanticised but it can be very, very problematic too – take Lynn Barber’s story as told in An Education for instance.Then he was like ‘what do you want to do because I know you are connected with another relationship.I’m happy to wait for you, and if not that’s fine.’ There were just no games and there never is games with him.‘The research in this area shows that not only are younger women attracted to older men, but older men are attracted to younger women, a convenient situation for heterosexual couples’ she explains.‘When we ask men and women what aged partner they would prefer, men tend to say that they would like a female partner who is a few years younger and women tend to say that they would like a male partner who is a few years older.
In evolutionary terms, Professor Fugere says that for men it is, simply, about ‘ensuring that a prospective partner is fertile’ while women consider the resources an older man might have ‘such as income’.
