I keep telling my single girl friends to go for the younger men since women live longer than men, but alas most of them like older men claiming the whole maturity thing.
I know for a fact, however, that if I had met my now fiancee a few years ago she would have cast me aside. My maturity was definitely lacking. God has great timing for sure!
Why Single Men Love Growing Old
It cannot be helped! Maturity, like beauty must be in the eye of the beholder for women because I feel like I have regressed in my maturity, but my wrinkles and loss of hair tend to fool them. Alas, but I am already spoken for and have to get my dating thrills vicariously. Thanks for the insights Dr. Hmmm, just check out the comments from self-proclaimed attractive women regarding loving dating men years their senior!
I took the bait and spent 10 minutes perusing the comments over there and only found one brief mention of dating guys 10 years older than herself from USsquid. Oh yeah and Cynthia sounded…ummm…interesting. Didja ever call her?
5 Things Women Should Know About Men in Their 40s
I never really had trouble dating but I am a hopeless romantic who got his heart broken a few times. One relationship took me 5 years to completely get over and I was dating a lot back then. Dang, 5 years is a long time Jai! How old were you then? Did you go on drunken escapades around town? My husband is my age though.
But if you suddenly wanted to start dating at 44, you just have to go for the 60 year old! I always love seeing the posts around Valentines Day. Pretty insightful this one! It would seem to make sense. Congrats on 23 years! I shot you an e-mail, and am awaiting your response. I am older than my husband by 4 months.
Those relationships work really well. I wonder what the results would have been if you had surveyed different people or had a larger sample size. Congrats on your 15 year marriage! Perhaps I should have been more clear. I think it comes down security for women, even if it is on the sub-conscious level — they are always looking for security.
The time fellow number two is in his 30s, he is more confident and secure with himself. I believe that comes across and makes more women interested. Just my two cents. I just seem to be more attracted to older men. I dated younger men. I was in my early thirties, and they were in their mid twenties. Some younger guys are mature enough to handle an older woman. I think age does not matter. What matters is maturity, confidence and sophistication level.
My wife is 8 months older than me. Really, it makes more sense for an older woman to date a younger man given the difference in life expectancy. You must be a good catch! Science shows that girls develop and mature faster than boys. Of course there are always exceptions. I met a 21 year old guy last month who ONLY dates older women and at a minimum of five years older than him.
He runs his own company, and has his head together a lot more than the average 21 year old guy. He even dated a woman who was 33 with two kids. Also, think about that 21 year old guy ONLY dating older women….
Oh, just read your comment. Two kids I mean. Look at how the male donkey on the left has an attractive female donkey nuzzling up to him.
Somehow I managed to beat the odds and rejection by marrying an older women. My wife is a whole 11 hours my senior.
It still counts though. I put 28 for women because, similar to what Mark said, women have that biological clock going around that age. I really have no idea on this one. My son is getting married next year and he will be 35!

He has been dating his fiance for about 5 years. I think people are waiting to get married because they can live together and even have children. Women date older men for security and money! Older men are usually more stable and have more money. Women find that very attractive. I hope we are all living longer and happier lives. I had some ideas about this, but never looked at any research on it. Since graduating from grad school, I have been on dates with girls ranging from 22 to 39 while I was in my mids.
Something happened to me recently around my 27th birthday where I decided I was old enough to stop wasting time on relationships that I knew would be a dead end. I am okay with a maybe, but feel like I am too old for a sure failure. I am well below your 35 number, but I feel like I could settle down and pick one girl if I find the right one.
I am not in a rush, but my thinking has moved that way recently. There are tons of single women in all age ranges , and not so many single men in all age ranges. The men who are single always seemed to want a gorgeous super-model, which left me out. I dress nicely, smile, have good personal hygiene, and am thin…. One day maybe a good guy can see past my looks. You make a good point about men getting rejected in their early years from older women and therefore avoid them as they get older. But, as men get older, I think society focuses so much on younger women just check out magazine covers!
Thank goodness there are beautiful older women out there like Judi Dench and Helen Mirren to look up to! Shoot for the range. Some good ones there. Getting the senior is solid! When she graduated, did you continue to have fun in college? Do you think this is still prevalent in America?

I think it has to do with your peer group. I was 34 when I got married and was the last of my friends to get married- so that felt like I was a bit behind the curve. But, your post made me nostalgic about my younger years. He scoffed at me. I met my husband when I was 19 and he was 24 — he thought I was around He would never have talked to me if he knew how young I was. I think the immaturity of males is something that is ground into our society. When I was looking into preschools and admissions for regular schools for my son, it turns out that girls are accepted into programs on average 4 months earlier than boys are.
For certain programs, girls are accepted at 20 months old while boys have to be For admissions to private schools, boys have to be born by the month of June, while girls have to be born by the month of Sept. Basically, boys are deemed more immature than girls from before they are born literally.
