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.
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.
This is a big reason why younger men find older women so attractive.
However, most women are approached by younger men, not the other way around. By not associating yourself with that term, you will erase any negative feelings toward having a relationship with a man much younger than yourself.
Men are attracted to confident women regardless of their age. Younger women tend to have more insecurities as they are still figuring out their place in the world, drawn to dating “bad boys” and are more likely to play games with the men that they date.
It takes a great deal of the pressure off of them and the relationship.
Older women aren’t inclined rush into a commitment too quickly.
Either way, you know that a man isn’t going to make or break you.
