20 advice dating man older
If you have these things in common, then a few years (or decades) won’t matter.
The increase use of fertility treatments also probably has something to do with it too, since women don’t feel as pressured by the tick-tock of their biological clocks to have children. It might have to do with the fact that many divorced men have children and alimonies to pay, something which younger women might tolerate better than a woman in the man’s own age bracket.Some of the other reasons commonly cited for women dating older men is that they are better in bed, more chivalrous, have better apartments, more ready to have children, are patient, and more assertive.But none of these “pros” of dating older men necessarily hold up.However, regardless of what culture you come from, it is considered acceptable – if not – for the man to be older than the woman.In 1989, in what was probably the largest study on the issue of age gap in relationships, David Buss surveyed people from 37 cultures and 6 continents.These surveys which lay out the “acceptable” or “preferred” age gap are a bit useless unless you take into account the age of the person. For example, for a pair of teenagers, a 1 year age gap could make a big difference in maturity and life focus.
With a 60 year old man, 10 years hardly seems like a big age gap.
Hence, the phrase “men get better with age.” We won’t talk about what happens to women as they age here…Today, men don’t have to go out and hunt food. So, the “security” that women seek is mostly thought to mean money.
Sorry, but the sad truth is that women are attracted to wealth.
That is, unless you just assume she is his daughter.
Let’s be clear here: when I say “dating older men,” I am not referring to Anna Nicole Smith and her “elderly oil tycoon” J. Nor am I talking about older men taking advantage of naïve 18-year old girls because they are easy to impress and fall prey to seduction tricks.
Recent stats show that marriages are within a small age gap. A study published in found that divorced men are much more likely to remarry a much younger woman. It also might be because the men are looking for someone different than their ex wives.
