Problem with dating a younger man


29-Dec-2016 10:15

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.But evolving gender roles in modern society have led to more equality between the sexes, challenging this antiquated notion for men.Sam Owen, Elites Singles Partner psychologist, believes "young men nowadays probably also recognize that older women are adept at diligently juggling so many responsibilities (career, children, housekeeping, fitness, finances, socializing), which makes them intriguing and attractive and a more secure option."The dating website analyzed the upper and lower age search limits for more than 450,000 of its members to reveal the age of a man and a woman’s perfect partner.Similar to their younger male counterparts, younger women have reflected this interest in older men.Women between 20 and 29 years old desire men who are up to 10 years their senior and no younger than up to three years.

The biological theory has always been men prefer younger women because they are likely to bear more children, while women prefer older men because they offer resources and stability.

Despite celebrities like Demi Moore and Mariah Carey marrying men who are over a decade their junior, the public still struggles to come to grips with these romances.
