Older men looking for younger women-Thank you Hollywood
In the May-December relationships, the one that has been become more socially acceptable mainly due to Hollywood is where older men are looking for younger women. Among the more established myths is that men give more importance to appearance which they find in dating a younger woman while women pay more emphasis on social status. So such relationships are a win-win situation for both the parties. But besides this, such relationships can actually work given the age gap is not too wide. Psychologists suggest that the female brain develop more quickly than male does. In this regard, age difference in dating can-and often it is seen that it does-make for a compatible relationship.
Most women would admit that they would want a mature man who is able to stand on his own ground. Women assume that dating older men is better in this regard since they are more civilized, and can provide and support for them. They are more tolerant and understanding than younger men. Older men are looking for younger women for vitality and life, with a sense of adventure that older women lack that are more set in their own ways. Older guys dating younger women find that they are also more flexible and adaptive.
So no matter how squeamish the people may act, Hollywood has brought in the practice of successful older men trying to look for younger women. With actresses such as Catherine Zeta Jones marrying Michael Douglas with an age gap of 25 years and remarking it as ‘Love sees no age limits’; we have become more open to the idea of older men looking for younger women. Age can be a major or a minor factor in relationship, the choice is typically up to those two people to make. As long two people find something in common, the age has nothing to do with the longevity of a relationship.
