Men dating much younger women
And on average, they had a more generous definition of “too young” than women did.
But on the other hand, men were also attracted to women their own age.
Online dating stats bare out that average joes are just as enamored with younger women as their famous counterparts.
Each example disgusts me anew in a way that’s probably not entirely defensible: I think I might be angrier about these couples than I am about a good many important political issues.
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.
The stereotype that older men are usually attracted to much younger women may not fully reflect reality, a new study suggests.
Little did Bennett know at the time, his future wife was there, too: She was the baby growing inside the belly of the female fan.I guess when the right guy comes along, this won’t happen, but I feel very discouraged and am not sure any more where to look to meet anyone.How does one navigate this “glass ceiling” of aging?With that experience come wisdom and a deeper understanding of what the man wants.By knowing what he wants – and not settling for anything less – he automatically gets viewed as a high-value man with standards and integrity. A second reason women date older men is that older guys aren’t so worried about trying to get somewhere in life – they’re already there.
