There have been many studies conducted exploring the reasons behind older men dating younger woman.
One of them published in the journal Evolutionary Psychology, looked at 400 romantic ads in the Swedish newspapers Göteborgs-Posten and Aftonbladet and on the websites Spraydate and Of a total of 97 men who mentioned age in their ads, only three were looking for an older partner — among men aged 40 to 59, only one out of 67.
After all, young women are fun, free-spirited, energetic and have a zest for life.
This youthful energy is attractive to an older man who may be feeling his mortality.
It's no surprise there are a number of websites emerging and profiting from these "mutually benefiting" relationships.
The "successful older man" seeking "young attractive female" is common place.
Look, you have not really lived as a woman until you have walked on the wild side and tried a younger man. In fact, my new dating philosophy is: Go younger, don’t lower your standards, instead just lower your age range! Dating younger men Further, like men discovered before us, there is a long list of reasons why they are often so eager to date and marry younger, reasons why every woman should at least try going younger, even if it just once. Just look at Jennifer Lopez, she is 46 but she looks 28 like her boyfriend. 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. She is 41 and the man she was marrying, and father of her one-year-old daughter, had just turned 32.I know what you are probably thinking and wondering.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.Young adult women typically have more of a need for connection.While they will create careers, they also want to eventually create a family.These are all the stereotypical reasons people tend to think older men love to date younger women.And while these things may be true for some men, the attraction is a little more complicated than that.
