You will find a number of reasons why some men date older women

When men are dating a more mature woman you need to look at the age group as relative

It’s truly just a number and there are more essential factors to some romantic relationship; compatibility and communication, besides just your age group. 

You will experience a bit of a generation gap but this is normal and should be expected. 

These differences can really make a romantic relationship exciting as you are able to explore what each of you likes. 

You might find that you are trying things you didn't think you would, but enjoying yourself as well. 

Think of it as both of you broadening your horizons.

Why Some Men Date Older Women

Older women also often possess the self-assurance that some younger ladies are lacking. 

Many men will appreciate this confidence as they can find a lack of confidence in younger ladies really unappealing and frustrating. 

Older ladies realize the significance of producing a great impression.

More mature ladies are also more financially independent and will not expect you to pay for everything. 

They have worked hard for their finances and won’t squander them but are willing to share expenses with you. There are even some aged women that appreciate younger men and shower them with gifts.

However, there are also some more mature women who will be looking for this so make certain you know what you want when in a romantic relationship. 

Finances will differ depending on the individual and their background.

Women today also aren’t worried about the social stigma of dating younger men. 

While ladies date more aged men all the time, it was once considered bad taste for men to date older women. In this day and age, this is not such an issue anymore.

  4. Hey Lux ... your posts often keep me in touch with what's on the minds of my single friends and clients. Thanks ...

  5. Hello, thanks for the information.

  6. I think its all about the interest if younger people are interested in older women the wont be interested in others.

    Nice post though!

  7. An interesting read, I'm a little older than my husband by a year so not quite the 'older woman' however, this post had some great points to it.

    In all honesty, age is just a number really (within limits of course). It's the heart of the person that counts, and that in general does come with age for both men and women as we grow and realise who we we really are, saying that, everyday is a learning process no matter what age!

    Interesting post.

  8. Like Laura Scott said -age is just a number really but within limits of course.
    A few years here and there should be Ok but a vast difference can cause problems in the future.

  9. To be honest I always date younger guys... I think that it has sth to do with joy for life they have.
    Happy Friday!
