In dating older
By Sarah Fader Updated May 09, 2019 Reviewer Wendy Boring-Bray, DBH, LPC Are you older women dating a younger man? Older women are dating younger men in greater and greater numbers. A closer look at the personal stories of older women dating younger men reveals an array of reasons why this arrangement holds so much appeal for both parties. Most women hit their sexual peak in their forties, and enjoy the increased stamina (as well as the greater physical attraction) that a younger partner can provide. Women over 40 also enjoy having a partner who is free from the emotional baggage associated with divorce and children.
Two people attempting to make their way in the world and struggling financially in a relationship is one person too many.
Having to run around after a 5-year-old is hard work, especially if it’s been that much longer since your man ran around as a 5-year-old. Older people warrant more of it, so while your man’s white hair will give him all kinds of credit with the people you two encounter, you’ll automatically be dismissed as slightly inferior, regardless of your personal attributes.
By the time you settle down together, he’ll have amassed a bunch more life experiences than you (he’s had like 20 extra years).
You significantly increase your chances of spending your last decade or so alone if you marry someone significantly older than you.
Perhaps, even after considering all of these reasons, you young women and old men who deeply care for one another remain unconvinced that your union is nothing short of perfection.
