May 01, 20232 min read
Despite the stigma in the society, relationships between older women and younger men continue to form and thrive. According to studies 35% of women above the age of 40 are in relationships with men 15 or more years younger than them.
Why Do Younger Men Prefer Older Women?
This attraction might not completely be about the age itself. Some relationships are formed on the basis of common interests and affection. In other cases the age difference creates a new perspective on partnerships and the unique dynamic is what attracts the man.
Here are 3 Reasons Why Younger Men Are Attracted To Older Women.
The experience that comes with age is what usually attracts younger men. Most women have established their careers and are financially stable by the age of 30 and are knowledgeable about various subjects. This level of intellectual acuity and stability is what attracts a younger man.
Experience also included sexual experience. Women with a high amount of sexual proficiency are automatically more comfortable in their bodies which only intensifies intimacy and makes the sexual relationship much more satisfying.
No Time For Games
As you grow old the need to beat around the bush dissolves and you become more upfront and put your card right on the table. Older women may prefer to have direct conversations rather than figure out subtle hints. Younger men might be accustomed to relationships where texts have to be planned carefully, social media closely managed, and attraction broadcast in only the subtlest ways. While younger men might be scared to open up or express themselves, older women would have passed this phase of their life and some men prefer this kind of transparency.
This eliminates the confusion or uncertainty that often exists in younger relationships—here, a man knows where he stands and can feel confident putting himself out there. Older women are often clear about their expectations. They typically know what they want and aren’t shy about asking for it. This can be invigorating to a younger man.
Security and confidence are traits that men find highly desirable in women. Women are at their most confident during their mid thirties to mid forties as they have already had the time to work through their insecurities. This kind of self reliance can be very attractive to a younger man that is looking for the same kind of confidence in himself.
This is where what society thinks of the age-gap relationship doesn’t affect the woman because she is comfortable in her own skin. For a younger man this age-gap is a boost of confidence.
There are many reasons why younger men would be attracted to older women and this attraction doesn’t necessarily include age itself. You might just be attracted to a certain older woman. Regardless of how and why the romance is developed, all relationships come with certain problems and these issues that need to be talked about to keep the relationship going and healthy.
