Some women think getting together with an older man will give them more stability and that the guy will be more mature and grounded. As most women know, this may or may not be true and it depends on the guy. :)

Age is just one indicator of many things. Some of us grew up early in life and have been mature for many many years. Others have never grown up and act like they are 20 when 40.

As a man or woman mature and has more stability in their life and surroundings, they become more attractive to those who want that in their life or have it and need to have someone that shares it also.

When sex becomes a function of caring and love making and not just to get off because nature wants us to have more of the species on the earth, it shows that maturity and calmness that life offers a mature person.

Many of us look for that in our lives now.....to enjoy someone for them, not for having children or a family, but more of a sense of relaxing and being with someone that can match us in many ways and enjoy life and sensualness, sex and companionship for just that.......maturity to enjoy each other and the time together.......

Just my opinion.....

Personally, I never date guys my age. My current guy is 12 years older than me, but I have dated someone 16 years older. I just think I'm far more mature than most people my age and relate to older guy better.

Many factors come into play in this situation.
Security and most importantly as c_d says for a partner to be able to just enjoy life with, without all the stuff we dealt with as younger ppl.
To hold close and simply live the adventure together.

Because the mature human ear can only handle someone saying "duuuuude" but just so many times before one starts to develop a tic and an overpowering urge to run screaming from the room.

Me personally, I like older men because they are usually more mature and not into all that drama nonsense, stable in life, have accomplished goals, are experienced lovers (which is awesome) and ready for a real commitment. Just my 2¢.

I disagree with fzurb on the following comment though, "now if we were talkin' 20-30 years older I'd say you have issues.". My first husband was 25 years older then I am, we married when I was almost 19. He was an excellent husband and father!!

Besides security and all the other things mentioned above, I've known a lot of women that have been attracted to the wealth of knowledge that many older men bring to the table. A lot of female student can't wait to hop in the sack with the profs.

hey all....... so like is this really true? I don't exactly have a long line of younger women coming after me.

So like..... this age stuff.... its mostly a number right? 'cuz if my late father is a reasonably good example, it sure is not a state of mind.... he was telling me i ought to grow up regularly up even just prior to his death.... my opinion of him is that he was always old but thats another story..... funny thing bout him is tho' - women did go after him .... and younger than him too...

well..... i keep thinking about something my oldest grand daughter said to me not long ago - it was a little long drawn out but the jist of it seemed to be how I could be her mom's dad and be about the same age as her .... go figure.... i know that numerous times, I have been taken to be the dad of my grandkids.... and maybe that's my answer as to why the girls aren't after me.... i don't look old or act mature??????!!!!!!

whatever.....

Crap, and here I was worrying bout the hair on my head. Now I have to check for prune balls too! At least they don't have to go in the profile.

I was contacted tonight by a woman who is 13 years younger than me. I'm 37, she is 24. I don't know what to think of it. I don't have a problem with it, but I wonder how serious can she be? I asked her and her answer was that she always has dated older guys.

Date her and find out.

I really don't get this age thing at all. When you see people in the real world, you don't ask them for their drivers license ... so why do you have to here ?

Back when I was 20 and in University, we were being chased by 14 and 15 year old girls who wanted to date us. They just wanted to brag to their friends that they were dating older boys.

My friends and I picked on and laughed at the guys who dated these girls. We still pick on and laugh at the guys in their 40s who can’t handle their midlife crisis and buy toys and trophy girlfriends.

The older guys "usually" have more money

and will spend more on her, may be going thoruhg 'mid-life crisi' and need a 'trohy' chick

And are prepared to pay financially for it

and "require" less sex in exchange..

(depends on her drive, she could be low-sex drive but likes to spend the $$)

Don't count me in that survey. I'm 57 and I rarely notice a man my age or older I find attractive. Although I'm currently chatting with a really nice guy on here who's about 8 years older than me and he looks great ... hope he looks that good in person ;)
