Do guys like dating younger women
At the slightly smuttier end of the spectrum during the research process of this article, I uncovered an entire subsection of erotic fiction on Amazon devoted to the ‘Daddy Complex’ with titles such as ‘Her Mother’s Boss’ and ‘Her Guardian Neighbour’. But assuming that both parties are consenting adults, there’s no doubt that there is just something about an older man.
‘An older partner may be in a better position to provide stability, he may also be more mature which a woman might prefer’, she explains.
This preference exists cross-culturally which suggests that it is nearly universal’.
Professor Fugere points out that this phenomenon persists throughout our lives, as men age they prefer even younger partners while as women age they continue to prefer older partners until around the age of 70.
An age gap can be good, it can be bad and it can be downright creepy.
A young woman dating an older man is often romanticised but it can be very, very problematic too – take Lynn Barber’s story as told in An Education for instance.This is something I struggled with when dating an older man, I couldn't help thinking about all of the women his own age he didn't have his shit together for and finding myself siding with them. He’s really fit but also, he’s got it together and his age probably helps with that. When he was ‘wooing’ me, he was quite straight up about it.
