If you often see men in this age group going for younger women, the attraction might be less superficial than you think, says Hoffman. She says that it’s a personality trait rather than a physical one that men like in younger women, but older women can have it, too. “A lot of women come to me in this age group thinking ‘All men my age want to date someone younger.’ That’s absolutely not the case in my work,” Hoffman says. “Men are attracted to flexibility more than specifically youth. They might go out with someone who is younger but if they’re in a different phase of life, they might not connect based on what they want to do. One person wants to retire and the other person wants to start a family.”
