2. You lacked a father figure
Older men instinctively have paternal instincts and may pamper his spouse more than a younger man. He will also take on some sort of authoritative role in your life and take charge. Some women seek to find a man that reminds them of their father, whom they loved and admired throughout their childhood. On the other hand, some women, who lacked a stable male figure while growing up, might still be on the hunt for this leadership role in their lives. At a certain point they will stop looking for a father, and start looking for a mate.
