Older man dating younger women term
So many ladies ask me what is up with older men dating younger women.There is actually an evolutionary psychological theory surrounding this common "phenomenon".And God knows there’s plenty of evidence that women can happily find romance with younger beaus.(Just look at Amy Schumer, Julianne Moore, Katie Couric, Kate Hudson, and countless others.) But the reality is that numerous studies—including a recent Finnish study of more than 12,000 people—have revealed that a lot of younger women do in fact prefer their romantic matches to be older.
"Women, on average, are interested in same-aged to somewhat older men than themselves, and this pattern displays itself across the entire lifespan." (Meanwhile, men are attracted to younger women as sexual partners, the scientists argue, for fertility reasons.) Beyond the science, there are plenty of great reasons why women should find dating men above their age bracket more appealing.
“They report an interest in both younger and older women.”And of course in the real world, Antfolk stressed, neither men nor women base their romantic choices on age alone.“We look for many different characteristics when choosing a partner, and age is just one of them,” he said.
