Why Some Younger Men Like Older Women
Older woman with younger man romance or marriage is not a matter of awe anymore. Many men have found love, harmony and happiness with older women. Nowadays age is no more a criteria when it comes to matters of the heart though earlier that was not the case. Actually what makes guys attracted to older woman? I think the possible reasons may be as follows…
Maturity and confidence
The older women bring a sense of maturity and confidence into the relationships. Older Woman has more experience with men and is more stable compared with younger women and men feel more comfortable with them. Young women tend to be more fickle minded compared to mature women. Mature women know what they want and are much responsible in handling relationship. So they by default bring more life experiences into the relationship and therefore nurture the growth of their partner without trying to be in command of the relationship.
Older women are taboo
This factor makes young men attracted to them. Our society is used to see older men and younger women more than the other way round and thereby offer more acceptances to such relationships. The normal tendency of people is that they want what they cannot have or what is a ‘forbidden fruit’.
Young women may have several men chasing after them (the general trend). Older women offer an alternative. Also to an older woman a young man feels more attractive and boost to her ego that she tends to shower her attraction on him. Also there are many liberated and attractive older women known colloquially as ‘cougars’ hunting for younger guys in places like the internet or bars looking for some fun life of a single and are easily available. Personally I find the word ‘cougar’ as highly objectionable.
Young men do not have much experience with women and may not know what to expect with women. And it helps to have ‘take charge’ kind of women as a partner who has already been in the same situation earlier. Many people also agree to the fact that sex gets better with age and getting an experienced partner is considered a plus because older women know what they want and they have experience towards pleasing a man. Older Woman also mostly takes care of the fact that they don’t get pregnant by using contraceptive pills to protect them.
Intelligent and confident
People gain more confidence as they grow older. Many young men find older woman attractive as tend to be less superficial. A conversation with an older woman can be interesting and intellectual whereas majority of younger woman tend to be silly, immature and sometimes shallow.
Majority of Older women is financially independent and has successful careers. Men like it when his partner is self-sufficient and self-supportive and don’t need him to take care of her.
The need for mothering
It is said that all males have a child in them. An older woman can easily fulfill that need in them though no woman likes to think by this way directly. But especially those men who are deprived from their mother at their childhood by anyway, get attracted to older women generally.
Attraction and love
Some may find it odd that some young man surrounded by girls at his age group would find an older woman attractive. However, this is because many older women are really attractive and younger men may even find romance or love in them.
I may have left out something. Please feel free to add more through comments.
