Dangers of dating older men


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.

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

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.

Another place to meet interesting men is the good old standby, the coffee shop. Sometimes just asking whether the chocolate muffins are any good is enough to start a great conversation. You’re not looking for the love of your life (although it would be nice to find him).

Many men come in every day to get their cup of chai or latte. Start a casual conversation with the man standing in line and smile! At this point, you’re just looking to make a friendly connection.

To call these women “cougars” has a predatory connotation that is not accurate, considering these younger men are just as eager as the women to initiate the age-gap romance.
