It used to be when girls were younger their parents tried everything in their power to keep their young daughters away from older guys, but as girls grew into women it seemed their interest in the older guy has changed. Older guys seemed stuck in their ways, they were no longer as exciting, passionate, or as accepting as they used to be. And no offense but they probably aren’t as impressive to look at either.
It’s a new day and women being with younger men are becoming more and more of the norm. According to NBC News, 1 out of 3 women between the ages of 40 and 69 are dating younger men. According to an AARP survey of 3,500 older singles, 34 percent of women in the 40-to-69 age group date younger men. And 14 percent of women age 50 to 59 say they prefer dating men in their 40s or younger.
There isn’t anything wrong with women who prefer to date younger men. One might argue that it’s the more logical way to go, considering women tend to live 4 years longer than men do. The fact that women live longer than men isn’t the only reason they seek younger partners. There are plenty of reasons why older women like younger men, and vice versa.
