Men are attracted to confident women regardless of their age. Younger women tend to have more insecurities as they are still figuring out their place in the world, drawn to dating “bad boys” and are more likely to play games with the men that they date.On the other hand, older women are already established, are more comfortable in their skin and are finished with all the BS games they played when they were younger.Women between 20 and 29 years old desire men who are up to 10 years their senior and no younger than up to three years.

These women are not mother substitutes either who are “robbing the cradle,” but instead are an example of the modern day woman who knows what she wants and goes after it.

The biological theory has always been men prefer younger women because they are likely to bear more children, while women prefer older men because they offer resources and stability.

But evolving gender roles in modern society have led to more equality between the sexes, challenging this antiquated notion for men.

Shifting back to the older woman-younger man relationship dynamic, it has garnered a collective gasp from society.

Despite celebrities like Demi Moore and Mariah Carey marrying men who are over a decade their junior, the public still struggles to come to grips with these romances.

This contradicts the stereotype that all men are focused on finding a youthful partner, as these singles indicate a preference for a partner three to six years older than themselves.

Similar to their younger male counterparts, younger women have reflected this interest in older men.

This is a big reason why younger men find older women so attractive.
