Dating 3 years older woman
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.
These women are not mother substitutes either who are “robbing the cradle,” but instead are an example of the modern day woman who knows what she wants and goes after it.
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.
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.
"Since marrying a younger husband deviates from what is regarded as normal, these couples could be regarded as outsiders and receive less social support.
This could result in a less joyful and more stressful life, reduced health, and finally, increased mortality." Yes, but if she could just not worry about what everyone else was thinking, she'd at least have a huge smile on her face when she kicks off.
The success of these age-gap romantic relationships may be attributed to the vitality the younger man brings into their lives and the maturity and confidence men find in their older counterparts.Not to say that they're not happy for a while -- certainly Demi and Ashton have appeared to be, as well as the eight couples in a 2006 study by Sandra L. Proulx in which the wives were a decade or more older than their husbands (an admittedly small sample).Still, the women in the study admitted to a certain insecurity about aging, which is just never going to be a good thing in a relationship.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.
