Dating an older man 40 60
Okay, Evan, I agree mostly with your opinion on younger men/older women. I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman – physically that is, but why would a 28-year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? I can totally understand why older men go for younger women.There’s no denying that they’re, for the most part, in better shape, with better skin, and less baggage from broken relationships.Time creates wisdom – but it also creates responsibilities and complications – mortgage, kids, career, etc.
In 1989, in what was probably the largest study on the issue of age gap in relationships, David Buss surveyed people from 37 cultures and 6 continents.
It’s a lot easier for a man to take out a carefree, responsibility free, baggage free, wrinkle free 28-year-old, which is why so many men try to go in that direction. Men want much younger women, but rarely do much younger women want older men.
Put another way, if a woman has an array of other quality options closer to her age range, what incentives would she have to date a man who is SEVENTEEN YEARS OLDER? Before any 40 people get all hot and bothered about this – I am not judging. I do think people improve with age (my wife is nodding). She doesn’t need a guy who will be taking Viagra when she’s sexually peaking at 43..
The pattern is always the same: rich, successful older man pairs up with unknown young woman.
But after the first flutter of love and £50 notes, do these women really have any idea what is in store for them?
Not that there is any shortage of much younger women keen to go to bed with these gnarled old codgers.
