Are women reluctant to date younger men?
I have dated women that are mature (13 - 15 years difference) and all of them were great relationships. The longest I have been lasted almost five years.
And I have to say, very fulfilling relationships. No games were played, no BS either.

And yet, there women out there who wouldn't even consider dating younger men.


(This topic is mostly for all the 40-50 young women)

Here's my question. If you want children, why would you date a 50 y/o ?

I dated a man 12 years younger for 4 years. But we finally realized our goals were not coinciding.

When you're in your 50's you've reached your goals and are looking towards retirement and travel. A younger man is usually just beginning his journey unless he won the lottery!

I have found that the older women only want the younger guys when they are in their 40's, on up. It was explained to me by a woman who was 12 years older than me. She said she was fed up with men her age who only wanted to sit around and not do anything. They did not have the energy that she had. She wanted to go out, have fun, and do things. It was not the age gap between us that caused a problem. It was her smoking.

I have dated women from all ages. At my age, who hasn't? But the reason i prefer dating women a little older than me is because i am treated a whole lot better. I am not looking for a MOM figure. I have a mother, and step mother. That is enough for me. But i am not looking at younger women, because most of them want children if they do not have any already. And at this point in my life, that is not what i want at all. So that leaves me with women my age, or older. With the exception of one older woman, they treated me with respect, they listened to me, and they were generally alot more fun to be around and wanted to go out and do things just as much as i did. Now, if i could just find the right one.............
