Both in terms of looks the guys 10 years younger will remind me of my kid brother and the guy 10 years older will just have too many wrinkles! All of my friends feel the same way. Women over 28 are repulsive. All men are the same. A 60 year old man has the same taste in women as an 18 year old man.

Of course freakin not. So many folks like to blame men for only dating younger women, when it is the younger women who are chasing after older men! Makes no sense! Older men who have never been in committed relationships are an exception since they can be more difficult in personality.
As an adult, I found that younger men were not ready to settle down, and older men were. As a 35 yr old, if I really want it, I know I can get it. As a 25 yr old if I really wanted it, I knew the older guy next to me could get it. Haha… I could never date a younger man, I prefer older men — they know what they are talking about Seriously right!

Why older women and younger men are a perfect match
He may not realize how much he may need to change his activities to obtain a successful relationship. I always think of this Jack Welsh story. Jack and his first wife had divorced. He was introduced to Jane now a former wife. She was an atty who worked every weekend.
They started dating and Jack wanted her to go away for the weekend. She did. On Saturday morning, when she awakened, she saw that Jack was leaving to go golfing…she was flabbergasted. She had to jump through hoops to get away and he was going golfing? The women are looking all sexy with a bear? A stuffed bear? Great article.

Other times the equation is different. He is two years younger than she is, and is remarkably mature for his age. I will never truly understand dating and mating psychology. I am just extremely thankful I found the love of my life at the young age of As men age, stuff stops working.
My husband is 2. We got married at 27 and 29, and it was never an issue. I would imagine as you get older, the gap for women decreases. If you are a 45 year old woman, is it really a big deal to date a 40 year old man?
On the other hand, beyond the obvious, I always wondered why a 40 year old man would want to be with a 25 year old woman. I try not to think about my age. My significant other is quite a bit older than I am, so I guess we prove your theory. We were best friends for years before anything changed.
Though I can certainly agree with many of the points you made, Sam. A friend just tried to set me up with a 47 yr old and he talked to me like I was his kid. Hmm, give older men a chance Kathryn!

Basically, boys are deemed more immature than girls from before they are born literally. I will tell you a secret. He definitely knew you were 19 when he was first pursuing you! But, as ANY man can attest, pursuing a woman under 20 is hard to publicize, unless he himself is also Glad you are going to change things around!
But, your post made me nostalgic about my younger years. I think it has to do with your peer group. I was 34 when I got married and was the last of my friends to get married- so that felt like I was a bit behind the curve. Do you think this is still prevalent in America? Wow… go John!
Why Single Men Love Growing Old
Getting the senior is solid! When she graduated, did you continue to have fun in college? You make a good point about men getting rejected in their early years from older women and therefore avoid them as they get older. But, as men get older, I think society focuses so much on younger women just check out magazine covers! Thank goodness there are beautiful older women out there like Judi Dench and Helen Mirren to look up to!
Come on now! You serious? Shoot for the range. Some good ones there. There are tons of single women in all age rangesand not so many single men in all age ranges. The men who are single always seemed to want a gorgeous super-model, which left me out.
I dress nicely, smile, have good personal hygiene, and am thin…. Ah well. One day maybe a good guy can see past my looks. You mean, you approached and asked for sex and they said no? Or you had sex and it was horrible or being around you is worse than being castrated despite awesome orgasms? This is fascinating. I had some ideas about this, but never looked at any research on it. Since graduating from grad school, I have been on dates with girls ranging from 22 to 39 while I was in my mids.
Something happened to me recently around my 27th birthday where I decided I was old enough to stop wasting time on relationships that I knew would be a dead end. I am okay with a maybe, but feel like I am too old for a sure failure. I am well below your 35 number, but I feel like I could settle down and pick one girl if I find the right one.
I am not in a rush, but my thinking has moved that way recently. My son is getting married next year and he will be 35! He has been dating his fiance for about 5 years. I think people are waiting to get married because they can live together and even have children. Why get married? Women date older men for security and money! Older men are usually more stable and have more money.
Women find that very attractive. Proud poppa! I hope we are all living longer and happier lives. I really have no idea on this one. I put 28 for women because, similar to what Mark said, women have that biological clock going around that age. Somehow I managed to beat the odds and rejection by marrying an older women. My wife is a whole 11 hours my senior. It still counts though. Science shows that girls develop and mature faster than boys.
I met a 21 year old guy last month who ONLY dates older women and at a minimum of five years older than him. He runs his own company, and has his head together a lot more than the average 21 year old guy. He even dated a woman who was 33 with two kids.
Also, think about that 21 year old guy ONLY dating older women…. Oh, just read your comment. Two kids I mean. Nice donkey pics! Donkey love rocks! Look at how the male donkey on the left has an attractive female donkey nuzzling up to him. My wife is 8 months older than me. For sure! You must be a good catch! I dated younger men. Some younger guys are mature enough to handle an older woman.
Some are not. I think age does not matter. What matters is maturity, confidence and sophistication level. I just seem to be more attracted to older men. I think it comes down security for women, even if it is on the sub-conscious level — they are always looking for security. The time fellow number two is in his 30s, he is more confident and secure with himself.
I believe that comes across and makes more women interested. Just my two cents.

Congrats on 23 years! I shot you an e-mail, and am awaiting your response. Really interesting read. I always love seeing the posts around Valentines Day. Pretty insightful this one!
My husband is my age though. But if you suddenly wanted to start dating at 44, you just have to go for the 60 year old! I never really had trouble dating but I am a hopeless romantic who got his heart broken a few times. One relationship took me 5 years to completely get over and I was dating a lot back then. Dang, 5 years is a long time Jai! How old were you then? Did you go on drunken escapades around town? If you follow your heart.
But many of us men and women alike get very protective of it. Which is normal. What not normal though not living your life by your heart. The age would never come into the topic.

Intriguing article! It cannot be helped! Maturity, like beauty must be in the eye of the beholder for women because I feel like I have regressed in my maturity, but my wrinkles and loss of hair tend to fool them.

Very tough to find a good woman with a real Brain these days. I am sure you break a lot of mirrors when you look at them. Then again many women out there are real such Losers anyway. Having been with hundreds of women majority of them were older than me.
