Sexual attractiveness aside, younger people have less baggage.

Plus, they were easy on the eyes. A-ha! So he admits he was after their looks!

And I wonder what the woman -- oh, wait, I mean the girl who is young enough to be his daughter -- wants.

/What is the number of people required to tango, anyway?

Why is this issue never explored with the question "Why do younger women date older men?"?

Of the women who complain about younger girls stealing their men, I wonder how many did the exact same thing with older men when they were younger women themselves. What goes around comes around.

Additionally, while she may not be on as much of a deadline as a woman in her 30s or 40s for commitment because time is a-wasting to make little Jakey Juniors, I'm quite sure she is still concerned all the same about her biological clock on some level.

All women who want to have children are, especially planners and Type-As. They have a plan, I reminded him. We all have plans.


We did not spend time in the same trailer park.

Why do older women try to pretend that it's "gross" instead of being honest about their own insecurities.

Trust me honey, it's far less gross than whatever spoiled flower you've got growing between your legs.

shower_in_my_socks: Why is this issue never explored with the question "Why do younger women date older men?"?


Because the men that are my age are farking idiots,seriously I'm not kidding. Now on the other hand I can have great conversations with my fiance,he makes me laugh,doesn't do shiat that could get him killed,is kind and all around just great. Age isn't really a big deal to me. What matters to me is personality.

Younger women are (generally) more physically attractive, less jaded, more fun, and less concerned about their biological clocks.

Likewise, older men are (generally) more mature, financially stable, and looking to settle down. And men usually age better.

The equation is so obvious that I don't even know what problem people would have with it.

When I was a high school freshman, the girls my age wanted to date the seniors. In college, they wanted guys with careers. But then they turn middleaged and suddenly wonder why men their age aren't interested in them. That young girl taking the older guys was you 20 years ago.

Correct. Neither men nor women are most attracted to members of the opposite sex who are their own age. So I don't see what the problem is.

younger girls with daddy issues.  Sadly, I'm in my 30s, so the girls with daddy issues for 30 year olds would result in felony charges.
 
2013-03-25 09:04:37 PM
I'm in my early 40's. I date younger women for one simple reason: Younger women act more mature than older women.

Daddy issues.  Sweet, sweet daddy issues.

so you DON'T like your women like your whiskey - 15 years old and mixed up with coke?
 
2013-03-25 09:06:11 PM
Because men age like wine and women age like milk.
 
2013-03-25 09:06:59 PM
It's not so much that I'm attracted to younger women, it's that there's nothing I want from a woman my age. Who wants to deal with a pre-menopausal, boring, demanding harpy whose idea of fun is shopping and eating? Or some sort of career-driven superwoman running around all the time and has no time for a simple walk in between running the universe and buying expensive crap? Or delusional middle-aged pear-shaped women who weigh well into the mid 200s but insist they're not fat? Yet find it necessary to point out my receding hairline?

You can stop eating, what can I do about my hair?

They're far more fertile, and much more likely to give birth to a child with a respectable IQ and fewer behavioral or developmental problems.

What I wish I knew when I was younger:
If you find yourself with a hot hot woman who can't get enough and is too much for you to handle, aim for six months. You don't even need to tell her. You'll both be happier.
 
2013-03-25 09:09:03 PM
I'm 41, skyping with a 20 year old who thinks I'm hot, I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

I think it is the opposite.

Still a shiatload of baggage from childhood, none of the wisdom and practice coping with it.

Ymmv.
 
2013-03-25 09:10:05 PM
And I wonder too, why do young men get into relationships with older women?

Oh the mysteries of the universe.
 
2013-03-25 09:10:23 PM
I can't remember who said it, but a reporter once asked a famous rock star why rock stars always date supermodels.  His reply?  "Because we can."

The same response works for "Why do older men date younger women."
 
2013-03-25 09:10:38 PM
The older women get, the crazier they get.  The young ones are crazy, but the older ones still dating are absolute minefields.
 
2013-03-25 09:11:13 PM
Two reasons. Both pert.

Plus, young girls today are into the naughty stuff you were begging your girlfriend for in high school.

Do I really look like a guy with a plan?
 
2013-03-25 09:12:03 PM
Actually, for me, I think it's the stupid haircuts and glasses that women in their 40's wear.
Frosted short hair, "Funky" thick multi-coloured frames?

What the hell, ladies?
What. The. Hell?

Whenever I'm around young-uns at work, I almost go insane listening to:

1) All the things they say they are going to do that they aren't ever going to do
2) All the bad ideas that they think are going to go swimmingly
3) All the things they think are brand new that they just came up with that aren't

My tongue hurts like a MF'er after biting it all day.  I'm so proud when I can just nod and go "Mmm Hmmn" and keep my yap shut.

Cuz somebody did me that courtesy years back - and I thank them.

Ahhhhh - that was cathartic.

I do.  I just don't want to be added to any lists.  Thankfully, it's spring time and I live near my apartment complex's pool and the new neighbor has a rather attractive teenage daughter.

My girlfriends enjoy oral sex and I must say, younger women taste delicious.
 
2013-03-25 09:14:58 PM
It always struck me as kind of weird.  I'm 35.  To me, there are few women younger than, say, 26 or 27 that I really find all that physically attractive (Kate Upton, obvious exception) even despite the radical difference in our life situations.

Oh, and that screeching thing that 22 year olds do in the bars?  Yeah, not dealing with that.

It has also been my experience that the young ones are more open to a "friends with benefits" type relationship whereas the women closer to my age are seeking a husband/relationship, want to move in with you, and get really pissed when you look at younger women.

You think that that screeching is bad when a 22 year old does it? Imagine what it's like when a 44 year old does it.

Isn't there a website for something like that?  Now, I'm not talking about the explicit hooker sites but I thought I had read some sort of "be my sugar daddy" type of site.

I married my second wife when I was 39 and she was 25. Twelve years later, we don't regret it. My first wife just turned 62, and I don't regret marrying her either.
I'm still attracted to women my age & older. And younger. If we broke up, I can't honestly say how old my next girlfriend would be.

Not sure why, but quite a few attractive young women seem attracted to a slim, polite, graying man with a decent job who can make them laugh... and can drive them wild in bed. Quite a few attractive older women are attracted to a slim, polite, not entirely grayed man with a decent job who can make them laugh... and can drive at night.

Fair enough.

Another reason I'm happy to be married.
 
2013-03-25 09:20:18 PM
Because most women in their late 20's aren't coming out of either a first or second marriage hating and resenting the entire male gender. And don't have kids. And aren't interested in "reforming" me. Why the fark would I want to date you after some other dude spent 20 years turning you into an emotional cripple?
 
2013-03-25 09:20:31 PM
One thing always baffled me. When I was 39, I dated a 22 year old. Women my age would come up to me and say "You know, she's only dating you for your money".

To this day, I fail to see the relevance of that statement. The last thing I cared about was why she was dating me.
 
2013-03-25 09:21:01 PM
My uncle Jim was a lifelong bachelor of the straight variety. He also managed to stay in amazing shape and looked about 65 in his early 80's. At age 83, he brought a date to a family picnic who was a good looking milfy 40-45 or so. The difference in reaction between the men and the women was the damnedest thing I've ever seen.
The women there looked like they were going to start a lynch mob. The men were dumbstruck with admiration.
