There must be 1001 benefits of dating an older man, but I’m not going to have the space nor time to list them all here! Men, like a good wine or claret, mature with age and, these days, many younger women are dating older men as they have come to appreciate the finer points of a man who has successfully passed the immature stages every young man goes through in his late teens and early-mid-late twenties.
Conversely, with more and more people logging on to the internet daily and perpetually using the various social media channels to seek friends and partners, there has been a huge upsurge in older men looking for younger women.
So, having said the above, what are some of the key things which attract younger women to date older men?
In no particular order, and in addition to my point about maturity above, I’d summarise some of the key benefits of dating an older man as follows:
- Worldly experience
older men have seen so much more, perhaps travelled extensively, experienced different cultures, enjoyed more of life’s pleasures and experienced it’s foibles; things which may perturb a younger man will leave older men unruffled
- Know how to treat women
younger women are continually attracted to the experienced type of older man who can give her what she wants -both in terms of old fashioned chivalry, gentlemanly conduct, overall good behaviour and, of course, …er… between the sheets…
- More financially secure
older men are usually more financially secure than a young man starting out on his career, who also may not be sure what he wants, what is his priorities are or where his life will take him; younger women crave the security only an older man can offer
- Often better presented
usually well dressed, more stylish in their outlook, older men have no need to doggedly follow fashion or be a slave to trends; they have developed their own tastes and style over the years; they know what makes them look good, look suave
older men who have progressed well in their careers often have an aura about them, an aura of being successful, of possessing power, of being able to be protective; younger women often find this a provocative, “heady mix” and enjoy the attachment to such a man
having gone through their emotional teens and twenties, many younger women are looking for a calming influence and see an older man as being able to bring stability and a direction to their lives; the older man has, more than likely, worked out the key drivers to his life’s goals
I can go on, but I think that’s a good start…
In any event, let’s be honest, younger women dating older men is not a new phenomena, it’s just that, like everything else in this age of instant communication, more people are more aware of such relationships actually happening.
Dating an older man can be both fulfilling and rewarding for both parties in the relationship and, with the general liberalisation of attitudes throughout the world, the number of such types of relationships are expected to continue to grow rapidly.
