His more youthful female companion may be more sexually attractive to him (making him feel younger in the process) and she probably doesn't call him out on his issues like an older woman might.
Admit it, when you see an older man who's dating a much younger woman, you assume it's because he must be going through some sort of mid-life crisis.
When it comes down to it, a younger woman satisfies one of the most basic human needs: connection.
(I talk about this more in my book, .)This is a need that is different for men and women at different stages in their lives.
I've dated countless women and it has always amazed me how little they know about men.
If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female's ignorance of the male mindset.
Anyone who’s been in a serious long-term relationship knows the journey isn’t without certain challenges, and when you’re dating an older man—we’re talking a decade or more—things can get even trickier.
I know this firsthand, as I’m 25 years old, and I’ve been dating an older guy nearly 15 years my senior for almost four years.Older women should be cynical about younger men who claim they want to date seriously, or remain silent about commitment. Women peak somewhere in their twenties for external attractiveness. In general, men disagree about the age at which women "peak" - partially because it varies depending on the woman and partially because guys have different taste.But I think it also has to do with the difficulty that men have distinguishing between external and internal attractiveness; often the latter is confused for the former. A woman's attractiveness doesn't take a swan dive after 30.The survey found men aged 20 to 29 prefer older women to younger ones, and women preferred a younger man as they age, according to Your Tango.This contradicts the stereotype that all men are focused on finding a youthful partner, as these singles indicate a preference for a partner three to six years older than themselves.Similar to their younger male counterparts, younger women have reflected this interest in older men.
