Not only are there statistically fewer men, but the dynamic of human engagement, and style of personal connection, has changed dramatically since we were dating in our 20’s.Also, a lifetime of love and loss has made many women distrustful and unwilling to get back into the dating game.The survey found men aged 20 to 29 prefer older women to younger ones, and women preferred a younger man as they age, according to Your Tango.This contradicts the stereotype that all men are focused on finding a youthful partner, as these singles indicate a preference for a partner three to six years older than themselves.In my recent interview with dating coach, David Wygant, he suggested that men are often the ones who lack confidence and suffer from fear of rejection.
Older men often view pleasure in a different light than younger men and are more concerned with the woman’s pleasure as opposed to their own. Older men tend to be more steadfast and stable and are generally more established and settled in their chosen careers than are younger men.
Women mature faster than men and therefore want to be with a man who is closer to them in maturity level.
Women do not want to date a man who would rather play computer games then spend time with her. Some women, and in particular those who have an absent father, look to an older man as a type of father figure or mentor.
These are all the stereotypical reasons people tend to think older men love to date younger women.
And while these things may be true for some men, the attraction is a little more complicated than that.
