A common rule of thumb when it comes to dating is that it’s OK to be interested in someone who is half your age, plus seven years.
However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.
The more mature women may be interested in dating a younger guy out of sheer curiosity of what it feels like dating someone younger, and also because usually younger guys are more “agile,” active, energetic.
According to a survey by dating website Elite Singles, 20-something men actually have a preference for older women three to six years older than themselves.
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.
There are some other compelling reasons for why older women are more attractive to younger guys.
And of course, it’s not a secret that women in their thirties and forties have a much higher sex driver than the ones in their twenties.
