Why Do Many People Seek Younger Partners?

We are bombarded on an almost daily basis with supposed exposés about rich and famous people that go out with, or get photographed or videoed with, much younger and very beautiful males and females.

But it’s been happening since time immemorial!

So Is It Just About Sex?

You may have a really good relationship with your wife or husband, boyfriend or girlfriend.

But if you were both aging, and you had the chance to experience sex with a much younger attractive man or woman, would you be tempted?

Different Stages Of Life And Priorities

Many young women are out there creating their careers, but they also want to eventually create a family.

Young men might also want a family, but their primary focus is figuring out a way to make it in the world, to become successful and to make money.

So in adult relationships, the two needs are often in conflict.

The woman wants more intimacy and the man is focused on building his career, and this is one of the cruelest jokes in the dating world.

But somewhere around mid-life, there is a switch.

At some point, an older man often realizes that he most likely spent too much of his life in the pursuit of money and or power.

And he also begins to understand that he probably neglected his family in the process.

At the same time, an older woman maybe tired of putting herself after her children and her husband.

She is ready to go back to school and pursue the career that she put on hold for her family.

So Why Do Older Men And Younger Women Click?

A younger woman is often compatible with an older man because they are both seeking a connection.

He might even be thinking of starting a second family with her so he can ‘get it right’ this time around.

Let’s Look At The Research

There are actually several evolutionary psychological theories that relate to the reasons behind older men dating younger woman.

One of them published in the journal Evolutionary Psychology, looked at 400 romantic ads in the Swedish newspapers Göteborgs-Posten and Aftonbladet and on the websites Spraydate and

Men in all categories preferred younger partners!

Of a total of 97 men who mentioned age in their ads, only three were looking for an older partner.

Among men aged 40 to 59, there was only one out of 67.

Studies show that older men prefer youth and beauty first for mate selection and women choose men who offer resources and stability.

And Older Women With Younger Men?

In France, the older woman, younger man, is now considered a rite of passage, and a toy boy is now as common as the annual nip/tuck.

In fact, according to a recent survey by the American Association of Retired Persons, almost one-third of unmarried women over the age of 40 are dating much younger men.

    Of course most men get turned on my young women!

    The chicks are in their prime and they have tight bodies and no sagging tits or asses.

    Every guy that has a wife or girlfriend would love his mate to have the body of an 18-20 year old, unless he’s so insecure that he’d be worried about other guys hitting or her.

    I can’t speak for women but a great many men would love to have sex with the cutie next door if they thought they could do it without their wife or girlfriend finding out.

  2. Gladys says:

    I’m aging and have to be honest about this.

    I’ve seen the changes in my body over the years and now when I see myself naked in the mirror I think, “Why would any man want that?”.

    I now have other things to offer a man that young girls/women don’t have, but I sure don’t have the body.

    Would I like a good looking young stud to have sex with me?

    Yes, and I had quite a few but they no longer find me attractive.

    Am I sad?


    I’ve learned to age gracefully and peacefully.

  3. eagerwatcher says:

    I was always attracted to older men but not because of sex, because that can be better or worse with a young guy or an old guy.

    In general, young guys lack goals, ambition and money, and they can be unbearably insecure.

    And the guys I’ve known under twenty five also tend to drink too much, do drugs, and they don’t know what they want from their lives.

    What’s more, when most men get into their late twenties and early thirties, they have grown past those things, and they’re out of the “party boy” phase.

    They mostly have their careers together, so they don’t need my money, because they make enough, and they’ve grown past some of the insecurities of their younger years, so they don’t demand all of my time or attention.

    And speaking just for myself, I like knowing that the man in my life has his life together and knowing that I can be planning things for my future, and he knows how he’ll factor in.

    With younger men it’s different because many of them don’t even know if they’ll be living in this country anymore by the time they out of college.

    I was walking in a park the other day and reached a group of Russians sitting on a bench.

    I saw them almost every day and often petted one of their dogs.

    One of them asked me:

    Are you married?

    To which I answerd "No", "Divorced", " Why?".

    The guy replied,

    Would you like to meet a woman? She’s fat but is a nice person and has a pretty face".

    I asked him, "Are you trying to get rid of your wife?".

    They laughed and I moved on.

    Let’s be honest about this, young slim chicks are much more desirable than most older ones who are fat and often wear latex.

  5. big-believer says:

    I wouldn’t do it because of my religion, but I sure am tempted sometimes.

    Many young women dress in such a sexually provactive way today that it would be totally dishonest to say that they don’t excite.

    And many girls in their early teens now dress the same way and I can’t help noticing them!

    It is natural for women to have babies when they are young and nature (or God) makes them so sexually attractive for that very reason.

    In the greater scheme of things, what would be the purpose of a woman that no longer menstrates being as sexually attractive as women of child bearing age?

  6. Gina Robinson says:

    I’d say that most women want a loving, caring, mature, fatherly figure, and they also feel a need for security.

    They need a man who is not afraid to say how he feels, one that is ready to settle down; and depending on their ages and circumstances, perhap get married and raise a family.

    So many women obviously feel that to get this, that they must look for men who are older than themselves.

    There is a nice saying, “Men fall in love because of what they see, and women fall in love because of what they hear”.

  7. straight-talker says:

    Women are generally most attractive to men when they’re between 16-24.

    It’s just how we’re wired to be attracted women that appear to be fertile mates.

    Youthful appearance, firm supple breasts, .7 hip to waist ratio, long hair, clear skin, etc.

    Women in that age range espouse those characteristics the most, hence why men are naturally attracted to them the most on a pure visual basis, though most people are in denial about it.
