Women dating older men statistics
This came up in conversation: How many men over 50 date younger women?
I insisted that whatever the stats might show, it would be a large number, and if men had the option, their dating preferences for women 10 or 20 years younger would swell.
Bennett and Benedetto may make for a particularly striking example (“Lovely fetus you’ve got there, ma’am, here’s my number, have it call it me in 18 years or so”), but older men getting romantically involved with younger women is hardly a rare phenomenon.
Every day, there seems to be another outrageous new celebrity coupling announced via pictures of some May-December frolicking: Jennifer Lawrence sharing a lollipop with Darren Aronofsky; Sean Penn dating Vincent D’Onofrio’s daughter; Mel Gibson having his ninth child with his 26-year-old girlfriend; Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen double-dating with their 47-year-old and 58-year-old respective beaus; Leonardo Di Caprio’s sending another lady-love packing upon her reaching the ripe old age of 25.
Online dating stats bare out that average joes are just as enamored with younger women as their famous counterparts.
“Why would a man want a woman he can talk with intelligently? I looked at him and raised my eyebrows as he began to smirk. Most of these middle-aged men have been married before, and they view the younger woman as easier, lighter, and it feels good… But I love all models.” As nice as that is to hear, in my experience, he is the exception.Differences in age preferences for mates can stem from evolutionary mating strategies and age preferences in sexual partners may vary cross culturally.There are also alternative social theories for age differences in relationships as well as suggested reasons for 'alternative' age-hypogamous relationships.Age disparity in sexual relationships is the difference in ages of individuals in sexual relationships.Concepts of these relationships, including what defines an age disparity, have developed over time and vary among societies.
