This is often a mutually beneficial arrangement for both parties involved.A woman will receive guidance and gain more life experience from being with an older man while the older man gets to feel that he is powerful and is looked up to by the woman. His more youthful female companion may be more sexually attractive to him (making him feel younger in the process) and she probably doesn't call him out on his issues like an older woman might.
I don't feel much different than I did when I was 30, and younger women are attracted to me. From this angle I understand completely why someone would want to start dating younger women, yet I struggle with the implications on a larger scale.
The offshoot of this ever-growing trend is that men my own age are busy pursuing women in their early 20s, to the point of where its rare to find a man in his 30s or older online whole profile says anything but 'dating younger women' is what they're after, even if its just the age range that is able to contact them.
And its not just me: many readers complain about the same thing, especially the 50-something ladies almost frantic with frustration, because - you guessed it - none of the men they grew up with will give them a second glance.
Young adult women typically have more of a need for connection.
While they will create careers, they also want to eventually create a family.
