So please tell me...what is it with (some) men that think younger women are better???Page 1 of 23    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23)
Totally agree!

We make belief think we are 'stealing' the youth from the younger ones making them young again! Sounds like an evil plan by Dr Evil....

Not just guys who are playing this game. Female are too! (Sorry ladies...no pun intended)

Pure Biology.
Men are attracted to women who will bear children (whether they want children or not) and the best chance for passing on the genes is with a younger one who will have the energy to raise the offspring. And of course, they want the desirable traits.

now I am not talking about relationship material here, just pure attraction.

I have to admit at age 37 myself, If I see a young man (18+) or an older man (45+) with a hot bod, I will oogle, and make comments to my friends.....niccccccccccccccce!

But that's it, just looking. People who look that good, look that way for others to enjoy. But that doesn't mean I would date them. I've only dated 2 years younger and 7 years older.

I think it's gross when I see a mans ad who is older than me and in his profile he is looking for anything 18 and up for possible LTR.

I have a little problem with the Viagra fad older men are into... I think if a man needed it, I wouldn't want to have sex with him. I wouldn't think his erection is motivated by the sexual moment with me, but by 5-[2-Ethoxy-5-(4-methylpiperazin-1-ylsulfonyl) -phenyl]-1,6-dihydro-1-methyl-3-propylpyrazolo[4,3- -d]pyrimidin-7-one citrate; 1-{[3-(6,7-Dihydro-1-methyl-7-oxo-3-propyl- -1H-pyrazolo[4,3-d]pyrimidin-5-yl)- -4- -ethoxyphenyl]sulfonyl}-4-methylpiperazone citrate.

What changed my mind from wanting an older man? I think it was that old 5-[2-Ethoxy-5-(4-methylpiperazin-1-ylsulfonyl) -phenyl]-1,6-dihydro-1-methyl-3-propylpyrazolo[4,3- -d]pyrimidin-7-one citrate; 1-{[3-(6,7-Dihydro-1-methyl-7-oxo-3-propyl- -1H-pyrazolo[4,3-d]pyrimidin-5-yl)- -4- -ethoxyphenyl]sulfonyl}-4-methylpiperazone citrate.

Just kidding.

Let the games begin
With the sexual peak of a woman being around 40, you would think the male species would catch on. Once we catch on it is not about performance...look out world


^^^^ what she said. You go girl!!

It's about emotions, caring, companionship, etc. It's not about Viagra, or having to learn who the pop bands that 18 - 26 yr old girls are listening to now are.

Men who exclusively look for MUCH younger women have serious issues..as do women who do the same.A man over 30 looking at a woman 21 and under as a PREFERENCE shows his own insecurity and/or immaturity. The same thing can be said of women over 30 looking at men 21 and under. As 1 poster noted women play the same game

Nothing funnier than the sight of a man with an erection that won't go away for another 3 3/4 hours! Kind of like T-ball. No pitcher needed.


I find that older men have many more issues than younger men. They're at a stage in their lives where, for some reason, they are into proving something. I'm sure not all, but many are. Maybe it's their last hurrah as far as their macho thing is concerned? That might be the reason for the younger women, I think.

Is it my imagination?

I should have noted that maturity gaps tend to taper off after 25-30.In other words a ten yr difference between a 25yo and 15 yo is HUGE,but the same most likely can NOT be said of 35yo and 25yo and even less difference between a 35yo and 45yo.

Moral of this story is....if you see a profile of someone over 35 who is looking for a non platonic friendship with someone "18 and up",Don't sweat it......take like a sign that says SEVERE ISSUES

I'm told that older men like younger women, because they are stupid as hell and easy to take advantage of.

Thus far, from what I've observed.... it's very true.

I always liked the idea of older women. More experience, no games, intellectual conversations, my chance to make them feel younger.

Speaking for myself....being with a younger man does not make me feel younger....quite the opposite....think about it.


That's true. Being with someone younger can only serve to remind one that one no longer shares the same habits:

No longer do you care to share with your younger boyfriend the desire to blast the bass on your music system so loud that it causes your condo building to vibrate.

No longer do you wish to share with your mate the longing to take 10 times in a row, the biggest, fastest, most twisting roller coaster ever made on the planet till you both vomit.

No longer do you find it fascinating to go out with your boyfriend to clubs, then stay up till 5 a.m. dancing drunk with people of your own gender while your boyfriend and other men watch.

Oh yes.. lots of stuff you can't share with your younger boyfriend because, frankly, you'd find it about as fascinating and tolerable as scratching your nails on a chalkboard.

Why would an older man, who obviously is at the sunset of his years, want a younger woman at his side? It's obvious! To pretend he's still young, and not at the sunset of his years.

Usually, the older male who wants to be at the side of a younger female, has to have something really good to give her, since he can't give her what a young man can: good looks, youth, vitality, the same interests in music, similar culture, greater fertility, greater virility, etc. That something he gives her can be money, power connections, a name that will give her prestige, a fortune, things that can benefit her.

There seems to be an attitude with older men ( over 40) that they DESERVE a younger woman. This is especially true if they have achieved any sort of success in their lives and is doubly true if they are in decent shape and managed to retain some hair.

In the past, women tended to select mates based on the ability to provide for the wife and family, both physically and financially, so older men were naturally attractive to young women. With women in the workforce and being financially independent, this is no longer the case, but men seem to have missed the change in society!!

Financial independence and security also means women are free to choose their man merely based on physcial attraction.....which partly explains why there are now "cougars".

The shift in age preference by women is a very interesting sociological subject...

The first thing that comes to my mind is the youthfull appearance, presence, and the hot body of alot of the younger ones.


What I have also come to learn from a few men is that the things mentioned above are what attracts them to younger women, but their immature attitude and naiveness is a very quick buzz kill. Im not talking *all* younger women, but alot of them in their early twenties are acting their age so to speak, and are very self absorbed and immature.


In the end, I think alot of men would rather someone more mature, and forego the hot body and short skirts for a more meaninful passionate R that can't be had with someone of limited experience.

Great post!

I think all of us, when we're in our teens and twenties are more in love with our mirrors (and shopping) than anyone or anything else.

Sorry, this is verbose........ I haven't read all the post so it may be redundant.

In my opinion, "onthebus" on page 1 nailed part of the equation. As in all living creatures, survival of the species is our bottom line programming. This also brings in the looks factor, curvy, firm body and breasts, it relates to child bearing. Just as men who represent power, represent the ability to protect and provide (whether it be money or Alpha Male looks and attitude) will always attract more females.
Bottom line programing, we cannot escape it, but we can grow above it. By being aware of it.And it just so happens a man can possess power in one form or another into old age. While us middle age woman are sexually at a high, we are not as young and firm. Our basic reproductive power is not so much a primitive draw anymore. (The bottom line reason woman at middle age are more "horny" is our bottom line programming is being threatened, "last chance for reproduction")


Much of the other part I think has to do with the desire and or ability to grow emotionally and mentally. Desiring a simpler or more naive creature keeps one from having to look within.
They are not being touched in the areas they work so hard to avoid. I have heard many men comment that "younger women have less baggage." They aren't challenged to look within. A younger person may not expect as much personal responsibility from them. Or have the self esteem to delve deeper into their partner emotionally. Thus keeping them from having to tap into all their stuffed/repressed/ignored garbage, which is very traumatic for many. But it is those very men who help start the woman's baggage collection.

Also a younger woman won't likely have a well developed career, home, and thus they are less complicated and relocatable.

I personally, have always been drawn to older men. 1. Because I am likely to find them much more mentally stimulating. 2. They have been around the block so to speak and have hopefully been learning from life experiences.
Lately the gap is slowly narrowing, mostly because they are getting older too, less physical energy. I am very energetic. But I still fin them usually more mentally stimulating.
More in touch with themselves.

Jaady, That's interesting, I am attracted to older men born from the 1940's thru the 1950's. Perhaps it could have to do with that particular generation?
But the largest age gap in a long term was my ex husband who was nearly14 years my senior. He is still one of my favorite people. Never felt an age difference.
