The question of age… Is it just an unimportant number or is it a little more complex than that?
Difficult to answer this question, since many are the couples that form without taking into account the possible age difference.
There are many stories of couples where partners have an age difference: in our own circle, in the media, and among celebrities.
But is it really normal? For those concerned, it is without a doubt. But note that most often, the man is older, while the woman is younger. Why is it always in this direction?
Why do we see more couples where the man is older than the woman and not the opposite? What are the reasons?
Many of you may also be wondering why women aspire to be in a relationship with men older than them. And why men, for their part, aspire to be in a relationship with women younger than them.
And the question arises all the more since age disparities are often extremely large.
If you are curious by nature and have already asked yourself all of the above questions, you have come to the right place! Indeed, recent research has brought to light 11 reasons why men tend to choose women younger than them.
1. Young women are more gifted under the duvet
It’s a bit cliché, but it’s a widely held belief: young women are said to be more gifted under the duvet because they are full of energy and are more adventurous.
More lively and naughty, they are eager to experiment and test new things.
At least that’s what men think and what often makes them dream of marrying younger women.
2. The quarantine crisis
The very famous crisis of the forties (or fifties) can be at the origin of a deep attraction for the youth.
Indeed, the quarantine crisis reports a fear of aging and what better way to repel this fear than to turn to younger women?
3. Many men also find women younger, more beautiful
Many find young women more beautiful than their older counterparts.
And this is perhaps due to the media, which tend to convey canons of beauty intimately linked to youth and thinness. We make people believe that the younger we are, the better.
But it is also linked to the quarantine crisis mentioned above: the beauty of youth reassures!
4. He is not looking for a serious relationship
Often, if men turn to younger women, it is because they are only looking for an adventure. And many people say that younger women will be more likely to accept this type of relationship.
They are not looking for anything serious, which is often the opposite of what women their age are looking for.
5. Men often want what they cannot have
It is commonly accepted that a man should not date a woman twenty years younger than him. In France, it is still a taboo and a ban.
In short, for many men, the young woman represents a bit of the forbidden fruit. And it is this prohibition that makes them so attractive.
6. Younger women tend to be more adventurous
When you want to try new things, to diversify your horizons, a young woman will often be more open to the thing than an older woman. At least, that’s what many men say to themselves … Rightly or wrongly!
7. Younger women are less ‘demanding’
As part of his couple relationships, a mature woman will always be more demanding and demanding than a younger woman.
She has a history, a past and through her experience, she learned to know what she wanted. Conversely, young women are lighter and more accommodating.
Satisfying them will be easier. Their requirements are not yet clearly defined, so they will be much more lenient.
8. Younger women often have more diverse goals than older women
Be careful, we are absolutely not saying that mature women have no goals and dreams! But often, they have already reached some of them and are therefore more oriented towards their love life and their family life.
They have already been carried out professionally and already have a brilliant career behind them. They already have children, etc.
But younger women still have everything to build. Their future is uncertain and they are very busy. This often means that they will put less pressure on their romantic relationships.
9. Maybe he is looking for a woman he can control
Young women tend to turn to older men for advice, for example.
And this is sometimes what can attract older men. This need for support which they find in younger women and which gives them a protective role.
But sometimes, the objective can be a little pernicious and it is the fact of being able to control their partner who can seduce them…
10. A younger woman is a way to boost her ego
For an older man, the younger woman is often seen as a kind of trophy. A price signifying his vanity and his talents as seducers.
In short, a younger woman sometimes acts as an ego booster. It is then simply used for an ostentatious purpose.
11. Approaching a younger woman is less likely to be rejected
There is no denying that today there are many women who prefer older men. The fault of Georges Clooney, most certainly!
But for a man, it only means one thing: less chance of being rejected. They, therefore, turn to younger women for ease and perhaps also, out of shyness and lack of self-confidence.
