Older men dating younger men
This affirms the stereotype that younger women do seek older men because they tend to be emotionally mature, have more financial freedom, and have an established career that lets them devote more time to a relationship and fatherhood.
Shifting back to the older woman-younger man relationship dynamic, it has garnered a collective gasp from society.
Similar to their younger male counterparts, younger women have reflected this interest in older men.
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.
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.
Age-gap romances, though, do actually leave more room for gender equality, which tends to make couples happier.
A 2008 study published in the journal found women who are 10 or more years older than their partner report more satisfaction and relationship commitment compared to women who are the same age or younger than their partner.
The survey found men aged 20 to 29 prefer older women to younger ones, and women preferred a younger man as they age, according to Your Tango.
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.
