Are you interested in a fling, a committed long-term relationship or friends with benefits?
Another study published in the journal, Psychology of Women Quarterly, found women who are ten or more years older than their partner report more satisfaction and relationship commitment compared to women who are the same age or younger than their partner.“We don’t know for sure, but it may be because when the woman is older, it shifts the traditional heterosexual power dynamic toward greater equality.
We know from a lot of research that greater equality tends to make couples happier,” writes study author Dr.
Fortunately, more women are realizing the flaw in these beliefs.
A recent study shows women are more likely to choose a younger man when dating online.
Have you considered dating a younger man, but are afraid of getting your heart broken, being humiliated and ultimately dumped for a younger woman? Our culture’s discomfort with reversing the norm of the younger woman-older man dynamic may come from a deep-rooted evolutionary instinct driving women to choose the older, wiser, more powerful alpha male over the untested young buck.
Or, it could be caused by something as shallow and immediate as a woman not wanting anyone to mistake her date for her younger brother or, God forbid, her son.Society is becoming more accepting of seeing older women with younger men, but there will still be some people who make “jokes” that are hurtful or eyebrows that will be raised.As long as the couple is happy and strong, it won’t matter what others think.As long as both people keep an open line of communication and respect each other, there is no reason a relationship between an older woman and younger man can’t work out.Don’t put an expiration date on your relationship, unless a short fling is what you’re looking for.On the other hand, older women are already established, are more comfortable in their skin and are finished with all the BS games they played when they were younger.
