Articles on dating older women

Well, if you’re a younger man looking to date an older woman, you’ll know that there’s truth in it.

Relationships that cross generations are no longer a social taboo and couples with substantial age differences are springing up all over the place.

She may already have children, which will bring its own challenges and rewards.

I even tried it when my boyfriend and I took a short break, and I found it was painstakingly difficult and more complicated than my experience dating an older guy. The texting games (How long should I wait to text him back? It’s exhausting), the fear of commitment that plagues most twentysomethings, and the simple fact that most guys my age aren’t as emotionally mature as I am.

As a result, my so-called casual relationships go on a lot longer than most people’s so-called committed ones.

I date younger men off and on over periods of 2, 3, 4, 5 — or even 15 years.

Evolutionary psychologists say that relationships like this often occur because while fertility lasts only from puberty to menopause in women, it starts at puberty and can extend long into midlife for lots of men.

That means there’s a strategic advantage for women to snag an older gent—he’s had more time to accumulate resources and stability than his younger counterparts, which could make him a more viable partner and father.
