I notice a bit of stereotyping (no pun intened) and over generalisation on this thread! That's ok, leaves more for me, ha.....ha....

@ Tiababy - Nothing wrong with that. You might be legitimately attracted to older men. I had a friend in college who was attracted to older men because she had a very bad relationship with her father.

As for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, it’s an excellent example of a woman marrying a man to get something out of it. As I said before, she would not have given him a second look if he’d been the owner of a deli at his age.

I’m not wound up about it. I just find it a little perverse for the ages to be extreme. I myself am not attracted to someone who is dramatically different in age, though I am currently with a man who is 6 yrs younger than I am. That's not much of an age difference.

“He’s just not into you” or “She’s just not into you” applies to everyone regardless of age. I’m sure it has been applied to you too. There are few exceptions in that.

You’re getting defensive over nothing. This thread is for the purpose of discussing why an older man would be with a younger woman, yet you’re extremely defensive over some of the reasons given. You won't succeed in censoring conversation regarding this topic. Chill out. It’s not all about you, you know.

@ Salamander - We'd better keep a close eye on you.

It's a give/take situation. One sells his soul to the devil while she sells her body to the devil! The women are interested in financial security, stability and the freedoms that go along with that...although I do not see them as freedoms! lol
The men are interested in getting a new model with silkier skin and better elasticity, less mileage, and less history. But...I suppose if both parties are happy in the end than go for it..I feel bad for the folks that get left behind and the families.
I have friends who's fathers have remarried or are with women younger then they..it does create an awkward, freaky situation with lots of tension.

With the weakening of the institution of marriage we are reverting to a more natural state where the more dominant males have most of the sex with young females. There is not much chance of a 35 yr old female with 3 kids finding a man so they really lose by the weakening of marriage. Life expectancy for females is around 85 so that is 50 yrs of loneliness. Younger less dominant males spend their entire lives alone.

@ saritamiami, Im sorry you got the feeling that I thought this thread was about me?!?
I dont think there is any example anywhere in my 2 posts that I took it upon my self to make this thread about me, in case you havent noticed the "older" women are dominating this thread therefor have far more support than the yonger women here, like someone mentioned, not sure if it was you, that there are not that many young women who look for older men.. So Im sorry if I came off defensive but Im kinda out numbered here.

I was just adding my 2 cents like everyone else was.

But I would like to ask something somewhat off topic.. what is your opinion of Demi Moore dating Ashton Kutcher??

Ok so if a large age gap is perverse.. do you still think that a 85 yr old man married to a 60 yr old women is perverse?? Its only perverse if one party is not of age.

VERY VERY SIMPLE: younger women are more fertile. So biologically, men are attracted to younger women. I certianly am.

It's exactly as bad as Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. That Ashton kid wouldn't be with Ms. Moore if she looked the way she normally would at her age without the $1,000,000 worth of plastic surgery, and if she were the local dry cleaner front-counter person making $5.50/hour (which, judging from her near-absence of educational background, that's exactly what she would be doing).

maybe it's cuz i grew up in the 60s that i have a young attitude.. i don't know... but also, my daughter won't let me 'get old', she's not having some 'old fart' for a mom! and i look to women like Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks, Cher, etc... dynamic women in their 50s-60s... hot and awesome.

so jaady, it all depends on the woman, not the age. i've seen women in their thirties who dress and look older than me!

I can see you now deciding whom to ask out...

"Let's see.. who looks more likely to get impregnated by me? That one? Hmm.. no, my bio book says I'm not supposed to be attracted to her because her hips aren't large enough.... "

Its a innate characteristic that we all carry, it's also a fact that men are drawn to women who have a 8" ratio difference from hips to waist, and usually it is the younger women who bear these measurements, so I say take it up with mother nature, no one can control human nature.

"Feeling young" is not the same as "being young". Most men are attracted to youth, firm bodies and childbearing capacity. That "50 is the new 30" I've read somewhere is simply ridiculous.

Some say we should "outgrow our programming". Well, I ask: Why? As men, what is the benefit in it for us?

Another reason I can think about is the old "little cat and cat": If the little cat didn't want me, I don't want the cat. A guy may think: "Those older women are the same ones that didn't give me the hour of the day when I was younger. Now they already sowed their wild oats, their bioclocks are running low and "now" I am good enough for them, because they want a nice guy to settle...thanks, but no".

Also, and let's admit it, guys, most of us want a woman with the least mileage possible.

Are these reasons machist? chauvinist? whatever-ist? Yes. Are they sincere? Yes, again.

So, if a 50-year old man wants an 18-year old girl, and he can find her (which I think highly improbable), more power to him. Both of them will get from that relationship what they want (and yes, "what they want" may be him: arm candy, her: money), and nobody has the right to say anything about it. Unless you think that that 18 year-old girl is somehow occupying your place.

Ego gratification, in my opinion. At our age, I think it is ludicrous to think that I could have a truly meaningful relationship with someone 15 years younger than me. What the heck do I have in common with someone that age?
You got pretty heavy there, Maam....are you bitter, perhaps?

Yes, and older women are still attracted to huge ones rather than older, flaccid ones that require Viagra. But so what? The fact that younger people are almost never attracted to older people, shows that they're almost never attracted to older people. Do older people try to have sex with younger people? Evidently, as seen by the thread we're on right now.

Tang, and most women are attracted to attractive men with lots of strong, healthy hair, men with hard ones that aren't reliant upon medication to levitate, and men that have the energy of a bull. So? The thing is that once a person is past their prime, they should have a little self-respect for themselves, and stop making a complete and utter ass of themselves by pretending they're still young and should hang out with someone younger. Don't you agree?

Sarita, did you stopped enjoying baseball (you're Cuban, right? ) only because you're older? I don't think so. The same goes with those people. The fact that yourself or I are past our prime doesn't mean we can't desire or enjoy somebody who still is. But most of us can't attract him/her anymore.

The difference is that some people can compensate it with other things (such as money, power, maturity, worldliness, fame, whatever) to attract somebody still in his/her prime.

About "making a fool of themselves", who decides who is doing that? Women may think that the old geezer with the hottie is making a fool of himself, while other men may see him with envy. Do you think Demi Moore is making a fool of herself with this guy Kutchner? I don't think so. On the contrary, she's celebrated and hailed as a role-model woman. The same goes with other old female-young male couples.

In fact, I'd bet that women think that only when it's an older man and a younger woman. And why should other people's opinion dictate what do we do with our lives, anyway?

My position is, if both are of legal age, and it's consentual, live and let them live.

@ Tang -

Yep, I'm Cuban! I never stopped enjoying baseball! I love it! However, if I'd been a baseball player, by now I'd have stopped making an ass of myself by trying to play it, and would be sitting on the couch watching it instead.

And hey, I'm not for prohibiting older men and women from having sexual relations with much younger people. I just said it makes the older people look like an ass. Big difference.

I'm a soccer man myself, and although I'm not varsity material, still enjoy it some weekends. And you know what? I see men in their fifties and sixties, perhaps not as faster as the young ones, perhaps not scoring so many goals, but still enjoying the game and having a blast.

About "looking like an ass", well, let's say it's true. What do you prefer in your tombstone: "She lived her life to the max" or "She never looked like an ass"?
