Have you considered dating a younger man, but are afraid of getting your heart broken, being humiliated and ultimately dumped for a younger woman? Our culture’s discomfort with reversing the norm of the younger woman-older man dynamic may come from a deep-rooted evolutionary instinct driving women to choose the older, wiser, more powerful alpha male over the untested young buck.Or, it could be caused by something as shallow and immediate as a woman not wanting anyone to mistake her date for her younger brother or, God forbid, her son.Fortunately, more women are realizing the flaw in these beliefs.A recent study shows women are more likely to choose a younger man when dating online.Another study published in the journal, Psychology of Women Quarterly, found women who are ten or more years older than their partner report more satisfaction and relationship commitment compared to women who are the same age or younger than their partner.“We don’t know for sure, but it may be because when the woman is older, it shifts the traditional heterosexual power dynamic toward greater equality.
It gives the implication that older women are on the prowl, hunting younger men, known as “cubs”, as if they are prey.However, most women are approached by younger men, not the other way around. By not associating yourself with that term, you will erase any negative feelings toward having a relationship with a man much younger than yourself.Men are attracted to confident women regardless of their age. Younger women tend to have more insecurities as they are still figuring out their place in the world, drawn to dating “bad boys” and are more likely to play games with the men that they date.On the other hand, older women are already established, are more comfortable in their skin and are finished with all the BS games they played when they were younger.
This is a big reason why younger men find older women so attractive.
Remember that you have a great deal to offer any man worthy of your attention, whatever his age may be.
