Okay, Evan, I agree mostly with your opinion on younger men/older women. I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman – physically that is, but why would a 28-year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? I can totally understand why older men go for younger women.There’s no denying that they’re, for the most part, in better shape, with better skin, and less baggage from broken relationships.Nowadays, at the ripe old age of 27, I often find myself getting involved with chaps in their forties or fifties. They won’t believe you actually fancy them Unless your would-be squeeze is made in the Rex Manning mould, he will be staggered that anyone is taking an interest in him at his time of life – less still a bona fide fox like you.Fortunately, I enjoy looking after window-boxes and griping about how everything on TV is rubbish these days. Such is the premium our shallow society places on unlined faces.
But the way I look at this, in all marriages when couples are either similar ages or there are age gaps, marriage these days is a gamble, real hard work to make it work. Statistically there are many times in all marriages when they come under strain, when we have kids, when the kids leave home and leave the nest, and in retirement, suddenly the man is home all day under the woman's feet.
My sister thinks it's fine as long as I am happy but she may just be saying... Time wise I think you would get a good few years with him before the age gap really showed up but remember that is only physically.
I know, I know, If I am already asking questions about whether or not the relationship will work, it's not a good sign. A man today at 40 are often attractive looking plus others will always envy them their beautiful younger woman.
But see, for men who covet younger women, it’s not whether you look good for your age – it’s what age you really are. If she wants to date a guy who is 6’2”, makes 0,000 , likes skiing, is within ten miles of her house and five years of her age, you know what? All she has to do is go on Match.com, and wade through a few thousand applicants. There are many other things that are attractive about older men. They can afford nicer restaurants and vacations and have cultivated greater tastes in the arts.
They’re more experienced, more chivalrous, and more likely to want to settle down than a twentysomething party boy.
