The Real Reason Older Men Love To Date Younger Women

May 6, 2013  |  

From YourTango

Admit it, when you see an older man who’s dating a much younger woman, you assume it’s because he must be going through some sort of mid-life crisis. His more youthful female companion may be more sexually attractive to him (making him feel younger in the process) and she probably doesn’t call him out on his issues like an older woman might. After all, young women are fun, free-spirited, energetic and have a zest for life. This youthful energy is attractive to an older man who may be feeling his mortality.

These are all the stereotypical reasons people tend to think older men love to date younger women. And while these things may be true for some men, the attraction is a little more complicated than that. When it comes down to it, a younger woman satisfies one of the most basic human needs: connection. (I talk about this more in my book, Secrets of Happy Couples. Assess the strengths of your needs here.)
