The Real Reason Older Men Like To Date Younger Women

By

why older men like dating younger women
What makes men attracted to younger women? The answer might surprise you.

This is one of the cruel jokes of the dating world: younger men are focused on significance and younger women are focused on connection. Somewhere around mid-life, there is a switch. At some point, an older man will realize he's squandered his youth on the pursuit of power and may have neglected his family in the process. He is tired of the rat race and is seeking more connection. Simultaneously, an older woman is tired of putting herself second after her children and husband. She is ready to go back to school and pursue the career she put on hold for her family. This is another reason older men love to date younger women. A young woman is compatible with him in that she is also seeking more connection. He may even be thinking of starting a second family with her so he can "get it right" this time around.
