Why would a man want to date an older woman?

As the number one reason men generally say they are attracted to older women is because of their confidence. After that of course comes their independence, the fact that there is little drama when dating an older woman. She doesn't play games, she knows what she wants, she's not afraid to say it, and she goes after what she wants.

What are the advantages of dating younger men?

There's a lot of advantages in dating younger men. First of all they grew up in a generation where they see the woman as an equal and not someone that they need to dominate and that's very attractive. They are also not threatened by a woman's accomplishments and they actually admire them. Of course they generally look great. They are in shape. They have stamina. They are a lot of fun. Little baggage. They generally don't have an ex-wife or children and that can be very attractive to an older woman. And they are willing to learn and experiment.

Why do relationships with younger men work so well?

The reason why a relationship with an older woman and a younger man works is often because the woman, she still has a very child-like spirit. She feels young, she looks young, and she doesn't want to be with someone ten to fifteen years older. And the younger man and older woman they also are very sexually compatible and they are both into having fun.

Is the generation gap ever too big when dating younger men?

Lucia: I don't think the generation gap between an older woman and a younger man can ever be too big because it's not about age--it's about energy. As you know, like energy attracts like energy, so as long as there's a strong attraction there, there's no reason why it can't work. I recently heard about a 24 year-old man--he married an 82 year-old woman in Argentina.

How is dating younger men different from dating older men?

There is a lot of differences obviously, in dating a younger man as opposed to an older man. With an older man, he generally has an ex wife behind him, children. Whereas a younger man does not. The older man is more set in his ways. He does not want to change. He wants to do what he is doing and not change. Whereas the younger man is more open to whatever. He is more spontaneous. He is more willing to learn. He is more experimental, whereas the man that is older justs wants to keep the status quo as it is. The older man having grown up in a different time generally does not see the woman as an equal. He sees her as someone who he has to dominate or be the boss. Whereas with the younger man he is willing to be the equal. With an older man, they are generally threatened by their partner's success because they want to be the boss. Whereas with the younger guy, he loves a woman that is out there, that is successful, that is doing it, and he supports her.
