What is with Younger Women dating or marrying Older Men?
Older Man Younger Woman Relationships
There are many celebrity married couples where the man is old enough to be the father of the woman. Whether it is younger woman dating older man, older women dating younger men or women getting attracted to already married men, society does not look kindly at the woman in such relationships. Those women are often branded as gold diggers, cougars or the other woman whereas the man in the relationship would be called a ‘stud’ or ‘hero’. While I am not supportive of those ladies who ruin the homes of other woman or those men who leave their wives for younger women, I would give the benefit of doubt for those single women in the other categories that they may have been genuinely in love.

- Older men mostly have established Careers or Business which gives the financial stability and comforts a lady desire.
- Older men tend to be more caring and may pamper her more and also be an authority figure in her life who takes change of things better.
- They are more reliable and disciplined compared to their young counterparts.
- They also seem to be more devoted to their partners and normally do not run around flirting or sleeping around with several women.
- They are more sexually experienced and know to please their partner.
- They are also knowledgeable because of their own experiences about what makes a relationship work and do not commit the mistakes younger men does.
- An Older Man may not possess the energy of his younger counterpart and thereby need not be pleased sexually on a daily basis which most woman consider as a positive thing.
- He also may not want children from you as he might already have some which is definitely a plus for a career oriented woman.
- He is more knowledgeable because of his age and because of this wisdom he can teach her and make her feel more secure and confident.
If it is not his Qualities which make a younger woman drawn to him then may be she is genuinely in love with him. And love is blind, isn’t it? If it is not love that has attracted her to him then may be she is a Gold Digger who is after his money. What do you think?
