Or if you just want to try dating a younger man, but aren't looking for the long-term, what the heck—enjoy a fling! I've had clients insist they want to date a man much younger.This narrows your options dramatically and can prevent you from finding a good match.There was a time when the society didn’t accept relationships between older men and younger women; however, now things have changed significantly and such relationships have become pretty common.
Older men who enjoy sports and other active recreational activities may have difficulty finding same-aged partners who share their interests.
A recent survey suggests that men irrespective of their age want to date women in their mid 20s.
If the findings of the survey are to be believed, even older men in their 40s, 50s, or 60s prefer to date women much younger than them.
Because older men are generally more ready to settle down and establish a home than young men, this can be a benefit if both partners are looking for a quick and steady commitment.
Although differences in maturity may prove difficult for some couples, particularly those where the female is in her early 20s and lacks significant life experience, such relationships may be a good fit for others couples -- a woman in her 30s with an established career and a man in his 50s, for example.
Dating someone younger—whether you’re two or three years his senior or are talking cougar territory—certainly can work (look at Eva Longoria and her 4-years younger beau), but being an “older woman” in a relationship does tend to come with certain perks and downfalls.
