It’s quite common to see older men and younger women dating in this country and all over the world.You might even say Western men are better able to maintain their desire for younger women in a way that isn’t as pedophilic as others.The much touted idea that women peak sexually in their 30s and men in their teens does not enter into it -- most of these couples are beyond both those age periods.But what about the notion that men are "hard-wired" to seek a smooth-faced, curvy receptacle for reproduction and thus are drawn to younger women?Certainly a 50-year-old man dating a 22-year-old woman is better than a 58-year-old-man marrying an 8-year-old girl, but how much better exactly?According to Hugo Schwyzer, this age dynamic is sexist and hurts men and women alike.When I was 25, I married a man 12 years older than me.At the time, our relationship seemed perfectly natural to me.
While younger guys are still figuring their shit out hoping to “make it”, older men have passed that phase.
It's not what you think -- the stamina or "re-boot" ability of the younger male.
The women like the flexibility and sense of adventure of their more spontaneous, younger companions, Tina B.
Instead, they settle for less or don’t even try at all.
I think that’s awful because I know many normal, great guys who just happen to like younger women. I want to show you that there’s nothing wrong with age disparity in a relationship and it may even work out better for many couples.
Braving "robbing the cradle" jokes, almost one-third of women between ages 40 and 69 are dating younger men (defined as 10 or more years younger).
