Younger Man-Older Woman Relationship
I recently read an article in the Philippine Daily Inquirer on men dating women several years older than they are and this aroused my curiosity as to why some men prefer dating older women. 🙂
In this article, the author is dating someone who is 6 years younger than she is and her friends are likewise dating younger men; with one even married to someone twelve years her junior. 🙂
So here’s what I found out:
The fun part is easy to explain. The more mature a person is, the more experience one will have had with interacting with other people. This should make the more mature person able to be more fun thanks to having learned more about people.
My experience suggests that as women age, they become less demanding and more appreciative of attention. Any sane man would rather be with an older woman with a nicer attitude than a gorgeous younger babe with a bad attitude and the heart of a cash register…”
“…Age is just another number when it comes to the heart…For those men who do find love, harmony and happiness with older women, the age difference just doesn’t seem to matter that much. The older women, these men say, bring a sense of maturity and confidence into the relationships…”
“…Some men feel that older women have more of a grasp on what is important and have outgrown playing catty girl games. They also believe that older women are more relaxed and secure in who they are. “
“…Some men enjoy mature females. Older women are usually this way. Since they have been around longer, they have more experience about life. Some men like that. This is because an older women who has been around a little bit can teach them something new.
Confidence is extremely attractive to the opposite sex. This shows good self esteem as well. Older females usually possess more confidence because they are more comfortable in their own skin. They are not at the stage where they are still trying to figure out who they are. They already know who they are and what they want out of life. Older woman don’t mind asking for what they truly need. Men pick up on it and enjoy being around a woman who gives this off.”
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! 😀 I guess you could say, to each his own when it comes to love. 😉 And with Valentine’s Day just a few days away, here’s wishing everyone in love a happy celebration of love with your significant others. 😉
