There’s no denying that they’re, for the most part, in better shape, with better skin, and less baggage from broken relationships.
Time creates wisdom – but it also creates responsibilities and complications – mortgage, kids, career, etc.
All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older. Still, most of them fail miserably, for the exact same reasons that I think Penelope is suggesting.
It’s a lot easier for a man to take out a carefree, responsibility free, baggage free, wrinkle free 28-year-old, which is why so many men try to go in that direction. Men want much younger women, but rarely do much younger women want older men.
From speaking with our readers and clients, some of the more obvious factors include: older men generally offer much more stability than younger men; or girls like to be treated with respect and chivalry, things which, sadly, are, apparently, lacking in the younger generation of males; then, more often than not, older men are more financially secure and are able to adequately provide for the girl in his life; or younger women invariably find that older men present themselves better and often have an “air” of authority which commands their respect.
