Nowadays, a significant age difference in a relationship is not uncommon. Older men often choose younger women, and it is no longer uncommon for an older woman to choose a younger man.
There may be a number of reasons why an older man chooses a younger woman, and not all of them are positive.
1. Midlife crisis
Men who go through a difficult time in their lives, such as going through a divorce or having a career in crisis, want someone to accept and love them the way they are, without expectations.
2. Desire for adventure
There are older men who do not want another serious relationship. They have already taken their share of it and now they just want an adventure and desire to enjoy life above everything else.
3. The attractiveness of youth
Young women have a special radiance, an unbridled energy, and they seem as if they are ready to conquer the whole world. This attitude inspires and attracts men, especially those going through an existential crisis.
4. Younger women are more open to the unknown
They are ready for change, as they are only just beginning to really live. They are not afraid to express their feelings and opinions. They dare to think differently. Some younger men may find this a challenge, but most older men love this attitude.
5. Problems with self-image, complexes
If a man finds himself in a crisis and, as he slowly ages, he realizes that his life is no longer the same as it was, it is natural that a young woman’s interest will increase his self-confidence and self-esteem.
6. Men are also afraid of aging
Some people choose younger women to make themselves feel younger.
