Challenges of dating a younger man
Society points all kinds of judgmental fingers, accusing these women of preying on impressionable young men, even labeling them "cougars." But regardless of what anyone thinks, it's clear that this is a phenomenon that is here to stay: in a recent AARP survey, 34% of women between the ages of 40 and 69 were dating younger men. These qualities can be a welcome change to younger men because women their age tend to be more insecure and sometimes manipulative.
They find that older women have a lot to teach them, not just about the physical aspects of a relationship, but about relationships and life in general, and this strength and wisdom can be very appealing.
When men are asked the question why, their answers are similar in many respects.
For one, the emotional stability that older women can offer is very appealing.
A lot depends on the stage of his life at the time.
For instance, a younger man may wish to eventually have children whereas his older partner may already have experienced parenthood and does not wish to have any more.
When a younger man falls in love with an older woman, it is beyond his control to change that – and why should he?
She is likely to be more comfortable with herself; more focused on the relationship and more sexually adventurous.
Some men have no fear when falling in love with an older woman and embrace it with open arms.
For all these reasons, a man in his 20s or 30s may decide that dating an older woman is just what he needs.
If you are interested in dating an older woman, then you have probably already considered the many advantages as well as the potential drawbacks. Can these relationships last, or are they best as casual and temporary arrangements?
