Older men who have been through one or two marriages and divorces, or even the breakup of several long-term romances often become cynical about relationships in general, although they still desire companionship.
Some may be quite suspicious of you, expecting that you’ll do something that an ex did, or they may not put as much effort into a relationship as they would have in the past, making it seem like they don’t care very much.
If you’re dating a younger guy who’s still in school or has recently graduated, he may not have a job, or at least not one that allows him to fully support himself.
Younger people, in general, have more physical energy.
Recently though, as women have become more socially, psychologically, and sexually liberated, some have begun to ignore social prejudices by dating younger men, sometimes with that five to seven year age gap between themselves and their partners. If you see or hear of one of these unconventional couples, your first instinct might be to giggle and make jokes about “robbing the cradle” or “cougars,” but is an older woman dating a younger man really so bad?
Let’s take a look at the main reasons why you may want to consider a younger man for a significant other, as well as reasons why not.
As you’ve in all likelihood come to notice, people often tend to be romantically interested in others within their own age group.
That being said, men dating women five or even seven years younger has generally been accepted, while a woman dating a man more than a year younger than them has been looked upon as quite odd.
However, make sure you don’t stay with a younger guy you aren’t really into just for these perks, as that’s pretty shallow.
