Now, we are sure, you wondering why would a younger man get attracted to an older woman or vice-versa, or can a younger man fall for an older woman. Believe it or not but it is a fact that young men fall for older women. So to try and understand this age gap romance trend, we will give you reasons with real-life examples of these people how to make such relationship work.
Younger men falling for older women
Young guys want to date older women because they find older women great partners, self-assured, self-confident, and smart conversationalists. Men observed older women boosted their own level of confidence and self-esteem as they have more life experience, emotionally stability, grounding, and can offer both honesty and different perspectives. Also, it is a thing that older women or cougar cannot resist and enjoy to fancy young men that is why they let young men fall for them.
Bengaluru based Psychologist and relationship expert Sindhu Vasant revealed some factors which explain what’s really behind dating an older woman and certainly it’s not all about looks, but it is extremely exhilarating for men.
Well established and driven
Don’t need constant pampering
Practically serious and mature
Extremely independent & confident
Live in actual reality
Committed and loyal
It is however perfectly normal when 2 people who aren’t the same age or has a huge age difference get involved romantically even if the society seems to think unusual. French President Emmanuel Macron is married to a woman who is 24 years his senior to him. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas who also has a huge age difference are happily married and not to mention Sushmita Sen dating a 29-year-old while she is 46 and Malaika Arora dating Arjun Kapoor.
The thing which is holding such relationships together is understanding and trust. They are happy and they make each other happy and that is what counts.
Older men falling for younger women or vice-versa
It is another fact that the older a man gets, the more likely he desires to date a younger woman according to a major US study. A guy who wants to date a young woman thinks man never gets old perhaps because men have to prove themselves that they’ve still got it.
It has been observed that majority of men who wants to date young women never want to start a family so being in a relationship with a woman who’s of prime child-bearing age makes it crystal clear that they don’t necessarily want any children, but they want everyone to know they could if they wanted so the basic motive is to have the physical pleasure as long as they want.
But then again, there are exceptions. Women also get attracted to older men because they think falling in love with older men is a mature love which is all about patience, care, trust and sometimes independence. Some women look for older men just to settle down with her children or to make their future secure.
Reasons why young women pursue older men
Couples like Michael Douglas-Catherine Zeta-Jones and George Clooney-Amal Clooney make it work despite the huge age difference. Such relationships are not easily acceptable by family and society.
There are many who prefer to date young or old but only a few who manage to take these relationships to eternity. However, they still face criticism and it does affect them and yet despite all potential stereotyping and stigma, age-gap relationships between younger men and older women continue to survive and thrive because, at the end of the day, age is just a number and love is all that matters.
