Equal Opportunities

What's sauce for the goose is quite definitely sauce for the gander when it comes to dating younger men. Guys quite happily have much younger girlfriends, and there is no reason why women can't have younger boyfriends. It's the 21st century, and we should demand equality in dating!


Know What We Want

Many younger guys have said to me that they prefer older women because we know what we want. That's not to say that younger women don't know, but one advantage of getting older is that you are more sure of yourself. You have worked out what you want in life and what you look for in a relationship.

It's Fun

Dating a younger guy can be a lot of fun! If you're not looking for a long-term relationship, they can give you a great opportunity to enjoy dating without a serious aim in mind. Some of them can also make wonderful long-term partners, and they can bring fun into your life in a way that older guys may not do.

Age Doesn't Matter

People can scoff at women dating older guys, and say that it won't work out. Certainly we've all heard the stories of women who go on vacation and get fleeced by a guy looking for easy cash. But don't dismiss all younger guys as con men. If someone is right for you, it doesn't matter how old they are.

Maturity is not a negative attribute. It brings us many benefits, and allows us to offer a lot to a relationship. That can be really attractive to a guy, which is why there are quite a lot who appreciate older women. We are confident and happy in our skin. This confidence shows, and guys love it!

A Lot to Offer

The definition of "middle-aged" and "old" have changed dramatically in recent years. Women take care of themselves, and as a consequence look good for much longer. So not only are we more attractive for longer, but we also have the emotional stability and confidence to complement our looks. That's really appealing!

Keeps Us Young

There's nothing like dating a younger guy to rejuvenate you! Having a younger boyfriend helps keep us young. We are already more youthful than our mothers would have been at the same age. It's also flattering to know that a younger man finds you attractive and wants to be with you.

Confidence definitely grows as you get older. That makes us very interesting partners. So the only thing that is stopping us dating younger guys is the fear of what people might say. Show some of that confidence, and date who you want. Who cares what anyone else thinks!

If you're going to date a younger man, you have to be smart. As with any relationship, you need to keep your head and not get carried away. Sure, there are guys who just want a Mrs Robinson fantasy, or who think that you'll pay for everything. But there are also plenty of great younger guys out there, and no reason why you can't date them! Have you ever been in an age-gap relationship?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Older men are out of shape and not attractive. Their b@lls start sagging to their knees. It's a problem. Younger men are just better looking, more intelligent, more fun, and have more to offer to a woman that has her life together. Most women don't have their lives together and are broke, so they scramble behind older, less attractive "males". Better to date men your own age, younger men, or just go lesbian, as opposed to wasting your youth on older men.

Not bad at all age is nothing but a number Its how compatible two people can be and the soul never grows old its the body thats changing Bravo for the writter of this article great work !

My husband is 5.5 years younger and we've been married for 27 years and have 2 adult children...all has been well!...though he can't relate to my hippie days and I'm not too fond of his Motown ..!

I'm interested in somebody 4 years younger than I. This article helped me a lot. You're right it shouldn't matter what other people think. If you want to be with that person then by all means don't let anyone's opinions stop you.

My husband is 11 years younger than me.

@Crystal Skye I feel the same way. I'm a little apprehensive to start dating this guy I'm interested in, as he's nearly three years younger. But I guess it's mainly because of what others might say about it, and that really shouldn't matter. Thank you too for opening my eyes.

I am so deeply in love with a man fifteen years younger. He is so pragmatic, so wise, my Baby Rumi, so hot, so cute, so spiritual...had I not had another amazing much younger man hit on me last year, I don't think I would have hit on Baby Rumi...time will tell...

Good for you

It's more about maturity and compatibility, instead of age. I had a horrible experience dating someone 15 years younger. Horrible.
