Happy Friday everyone! I was reading online and saw a conversation about younger men dating older women. My own mom always married younger men with a huge age gap. I would ask her time to time why she was attracted to younger men and her answer was always the same that she just didn’t like men her age. She liked to feel young. Years later after figuring things out, I think my mom just wanted to have more control over their relationship. I could even go a bit deeper as to my reasonings but I will stop there lol. I personally like men my own age and I’m open to dating a man a few years younger or a few years older but not a drastic age difference, it’s just not my jam.
Talking to my girlfriends, they say it’s the best thing since sliced bread, I just don’t see the benefit. Most of their relationships only last a few months or less than a year and I just don’t see the point of it. I guess if people are not looking for anything serious(which is the climate now) and just want to have fun, then oh well, if that works for you then fine. That kind of relationship would NEVER work for me.
My ex husband was three years younger than me and another guy I really liked, was four years younger than me but that is as far as I will go. I usually attract men that’s in their 30’s which I’m always confused by lol. I used to get highly offended when they would approach me but guys said it’s because of my youthful personality and how I look as to why they always try to ask me out. I normally turn down their advances because I am just not attracted to younger men. That made me dig a little deeper and try to answer the question of why younger men might be attracted to older women.
The reasons below highlight the multifaceted dynamics that can attract younger men to older women, emphasizing qualities beyond just physical attraction. More inside…
