why do younger guys tend to like older women?Page 4 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
When I was in my mid 20's I was usually interested in women who were in their early to mid 30's, and a lot of it was due to maturity levels. By that time in my life I was starting to look around for someone to settle down with, but most the woman my own age were very much into flirt / party / pretty boy stage, and were not ready to settle down. Many of the woman I knew who were in their 30's, however, were starting to move past that and seriously look for that one person to settle down for the long haul with. I am not a looker, and have NEVER been called handsome or attractive. I have, however, been called amusing, funny, nice, and stable, and these things start to become more important then looks as one gets older.

I have to agree with what you just said about older women-I'm one of them and I would probably have to add that younger girls are much more timid and far less relaxed about even just hanging out for an evening. I know for myself I don't allow the words "cougar" or "panther" to intimidate me because I know I'm still hot and I've got personality and vibrance not to mention more confidence over the years. I would think that's what most guys young or older are looking for. Please correct if I'm wrong. I have always found problems with older guys myself-most of them are too stuffy for me. No girl likes a couch potato! Hope to hear back from you. Thanks.

Older people tend to be stronger people, and I like strong women.

I can't stand a weak person.

I tell you what, there's a few women in their early 30's possibly late 20's at the hospital I work in that are nice, incredibly attractive and honestly I have no idea how they are single. However, I would think that women of that age are probably lookin for someone that has a bit more wordly experiance/wealth. Which makes them sorta unlikely prospects and that puts them in higher demand. Everyone wants stuff they can't have.

I don't necessary prefer older women. But I would consider dating a woman that is 10-12 years older than me. Some older women have a great combination of looks, maturity, wisdom, and sexual experience. LOL. But I probably wouldn't seriously date a woman who is 20+ years older than me. IMO we most likely would have different long term future goals due to the very large any difference

Eyes Wide Open- I had a sexual experience with an older woman from an early age. Environment-I come from a small town. Options were limited
Strive-A need to mature sooner and a drive to accomplish goals and careers throrough networking

I'm a 22 year old man and I can tell you it's not any more or less about sex than it would be with any other woman. Some younger guys just enjoy the personalities that women who are older have.

someone of my age who has her head screwed on

Bingo! I think you just answered your own question =)

Also aren't women in their 30s a lot less attractive than the girls of these young men's own age?

No way! If anything they're more beautiful! I good woman, like wine, only gets better with age.

It's for the same reason that inspires women to ask about why older men prefer younger women.

I'm a younger guy (23) and I've never really dated anyone younger than 30.

I'm a mature guy and I get along well with people who are older than I am. All of my friends guys and women are at least 30. I don't tend to hang around young adults because of their maturity level. I'm not big on getting wasted or "runnin down some ho's" or "Bumpin' my music so the girlies can bounce to it".

I've only dated older women and I love it. Younger girls cannot hold a conversation. If they can, it's only about their hair, or sex. I like to be able to talk about anything with a woman. And there's more to a relationship than just sex. I know most girls my age where I live all want just sex and I'm not into that. The oldest I've dated was 49.

Actually I've been trying to contact some older women but they see me as some young guy who's looking to get laid when in fact, I'm looking for someone who I can go out on a real date with and see if it turns into something.

If you were to create a list of pros and cons, older women would come out on top everytime.

OP(caramelcakes )...I like women in their early 30's as I find them more mature, they don't engage in needless drama, and are far less likely to engage in mind-games compared to a girl in her early to mid 20s...There are a lot of really hot woman in the early 30s...

Women in their early 30s "generally" tend to be more balanced compared to their early to mid 20's counterparts...

I sure has hell don't! I am 24 years old, and I would much rather someone my own age, or younger. The reason being, not for sex or anything like that, but for similarities in life experiences. Specificly meaning I would much rather meet someone that grew up at the same rate as I grew up, mentally, physically, geographically. That way we can share similar experiences due to closeness in age, and it would draw us even closer to having a better relationship. Not all young guys want older women, if anything it's actually the extreme other way around. Or at least that is my opinion.

Never understood this myself. Still don't know quite what to make of it - I know 'duh, for the sex' was my initial reaction as well. Personally I'm not quite comfortable with a guy even 3 years my junior, but there's been some reasonable and intriguing reasons put forth here! Interesting....

I have been dating older women since I was 18. At 18 I was dating a 30 year old and I loved it. It seems to me older women and younger guys sync very well for a few factors:

1. Younger guys have the energy to keep up with them and do just about whatever they want, whenever they want , where ever they want (i.e. Retiling the kitchen then sexing her for an hour right after, chasing her kid around all day and still have energy to take her out for a night of dancing)

2. Younger guys aren't stuck in their ways yet so can be molded into what that woman wants.

3. Nothing is a bigger ego boost to an older woman than having a young hot guy confirm that "she still has it" and nothing is a bigger ego boost to a younger guy than confirmation he can get an older woman to fall for him (young girls are too easy).

4. Plus the lack of drama because a young guy is more open minded, less established so is more adaptable while the older woman has her stuff together and can put him on the right path without much detouring or deviating from her set path..

They fit..

I am all for the younger guy older woman combo and I welcome all older women with open arms.. I love you lol

Hey Yogeshi...you're right on with your answers! I can tell you, I'm more in tuned with my body now, then I ever was in my 20's, 30's, even 40's. I KNOW what I want, and I'm not shy about asking for it...lol

Here's to all the "older" women...50 is the new 30...and so on....
LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH....life is too short for the gamers

a few other things to ponder
1) older women aren't as likely to be riddled with STD's ( in some locations the reported rate among 16-20 year old females is 50 %.. one of my daughters 21 year old friends came back recently from a clinic visit with the report she had 4 different stds after being with only 3 different males.. i wonder how unusual her situation is..
of course as these younger males visit the older women the problem might not be generational for long.
2) older women don't want children so handle the birth control issue more reliably
3) older women are less likely to be seeking a younger partner for marriage

hell if i was in my 20's and following logic ,Id be seeking a late 30's early 40's partner as well

I tend to ejoy older (then me!) women for a number of reasons.

I'm quite young (21) and still need somebody to take care of me, well...not really, but I enjoy being spoiled. Older girls take me places, introduce me to business prospects, and generally have more of a life going for them.

Older girls are usually more mature-intelligent, thoughtful conversations, very little drama, and we can relate on a much higher level.

LAst, I HATE "training" girls. I'm into multiple partners, fetish, and many other "fringe" type things. Younger girls are usually very reluctant and close minded about this sexuality. Introducing them to this type of stuff is a pain, and they tend to make an ass of themselves...and me.

I hope this helps!

Yours truly,

Jeremy

Not necessarily, depends on the woman; some in their 30's are actually better-looking than some in their 20's. But then again it all depends on the person. As to why younger guys like "older women", probably a certain type of "taboo" aspect to the whole thing perhaps. If they like women who are WAY way older then perhaps they have a mother / aunt fixation or something like that, subconsciously.. . (paging Dr.Freud....). Anyway it seems like some of us men go for the "older woman" fantasy when we are younger, but then as we get a bit older ironically we go back to a "younger woman" fantasy.....

The reason I am getting more interested in older women are because:

- More mature than younger girls (read: no games)
- Know what they want
- Are more comfortable with their bodies
- Are more confident
- More independent

Basically its like with wine. Some wine are better letting age and mature to be open latter, while others are better off opening now and not let aging. But those you let age tend to be a lot better in taste and smell than those you open up right off the bat with no aging.

I really don't know many men that prefer and older women to a younger one. Sure there are some guys that just think it's cool to tell their friends they nailed a "MILF" but generally speaking I would much rather date a girl 2-3 years younger than me than older than me.

It's been said several times already, because of the maturity factor.

Younger women are very superficial for the most part and if you don't fit the bad boy image type, more than likely they don't want no part of you.

I dated a woman who was in her early 30's a few weeks back and although we didn't hit it off, I'd say I had a great time with her than I did with someone who was younger than I.
