And hearing “I think I pulled my back” is not very attractive. This can be an exhilarating change for an older woman.
Younger men do not have as much responsibilities as an older man. Because of this they can be more spontaneous and adventurous. A younger man will be more inclined to go out and take her to new exciting venues.
We’ve all heard this idea before: men are designed to want to spread their seed, so in spite of their age and inability with age to care for children, they remain attracted to women who can propagate their DNA.
Schwyzer, on the other hand, believes that men are not hardwired to be attracted to younger women.
In addition to showing the increasing number of young men who are on the look-out for older women, Elite Singles' research also indicated that the average 'ideal' age gap for most men over the age of 30 is also becoming smaller.
According to a new survey by dating website Elite Singles, men aged between 20 and 29 are much more likely to date a woman who is significantly older than them, while men aged 30 and older, while still eager to enter into a relationship with someone younger, are starting to close the average age gap between themselves and their ideal prospective partners.'Young men nowadays probably recognize that older women are adept at diligently juggling so many responsibilities (career, children, housekeeping, fitness, finances, socializing), which makes them intriguing and attractive and a more secure option,' psychologist, Sam Owen told the Huffington Post.
Elite Singles surveyed 450,000 of its online daters in order to find out what their ideal relationship age gap would be, with the results clearly indicating that - despite society's perceptions about men always needing to find a younger woman - the majority of young men actually want the exact opposite.
“That callowness is often oversold by too many aging Lotharios wanting to emphasize the difference between their own supposed expertise and young men’s clumsiness.” Mmm-hmm. According to Schwyzer, many young women end up with older men who are “deeply unsafe.” For his part, Schwyzer urges older men to mentor younger men instead of taking advantage of the younger women those young men should be dating.
That seems to be a sound directive, given that according to a recent survey commissioned by Nickelodeon UK, “men and women agree men remain ‘immature’ well into their late 30s and early 40s.” Both genders also agree that women mature into proper adults at the age of 32.
