+146 In 10-20 years , most adult couples will be made of an older woman dating a younger man, amirite?

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Nah women generally like men that are older and men generally like younger women. As women pursue their careers more there may be more cougars looking for young men but the overall dynamic is not just gonna change because of economics.

It's changing already

Women are generally hypergamous, meaning they date men who have similar or higher social status. Most women would rather remain single than support an unsuccessful partner.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

They won't support an unsuccessful partner who is their age but they will cut the young men some slack and enjoy their youth instead

What's the point for a young guy to date a grandma?

35 -45 year old woman isn't a grandma

I am 47, 35 is not older. If I was 30, would date 40 no problem, and I did, but would date a 20 yo at the same time

no, no, and no what you'll continue to see is some older career women settling and many male incels that well, stay incels. Can't change millions of years of biology.

It's biology for women to be attracted to young attractive guys though

No, it s biology for women to be attracted to protectors and providers. Guys will always be attracted to young fertile women.

When I was younger I used to date guys up to 11 years older than me. Now in my 30s I'm married to a guy younger than me and he's probably the most mature one I've been with. I'm not doing this for "fun and attention" lol. Plus it's not like it's all up to the women to choose. If men don't want to be with older women then it wouldn't work.

I'm CF and have a good career but unlike men I have no desire to be with someone much younger than me, maybe 4-5 years at the max. Women don't obsess nearly as much about dating younger people like men do.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Men don't "obsess" about being with younger people, it's just a simple preference Preference =/= Obsession

Really? I think men are less ageist than women when it comes to dating. Men generally don't care about age as long as you're not to much older or too much younger than them, whereas women strictly tend to prefer older men or men around the same age as them.

4-5 years younger is still younger

If you're over the age of 35, then 4-5 years isn't a big difference, but a 25 year old is a big difference.

I think he means a trophy husband. Like women would grab men for pleasure, not life long partnership

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Do you know actually know any women? Serious question. Women are already heavily complaining that men their age lack the basic life skills and maturity they expect in an equal partner, and you think they are all collectively gonna start going for less capable men? Hahahahah

by Anonymous 9 months ago

I know lots of women, and they make more than their partners/husbands. The ones who are single and not looking for serious relationships do date younger men, and as OP said it's for "pleasure, attention and fun", they don't care how capable they are if that's all they're looking for.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

It isn't just about money and success though, most women I know are just more attracted older men than younger men. It has nothing to do with how much money they have or their education or how successful their career is. I don't see that reversing just because women are becoming more successful on average than they used to be.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

How old are the women you know ?

by Anonymous 9 months ago

20s, 30s and 40s. It seems almost universal in my experience. Obviously there are exceptions and even the women I know who have/are dating a younger man don't actually have a preference for younger men, it's more of an anomoly for them.

The older a woman gets the less her status becomes. Grandma is just that to an extreme.

Women are doing worse than men. Even though they are given many advantages, they still earn less than men because they don't want to work as hard. Even though they get way more college degrees than men, they still get most of the lowering paying professions because they don't want to do the stuff that pays like engineering. It is no coincidence that there is no female Elon musk or bill gates.

I think you're overstating the degree of these effects and ignoring the fact that it's increasingly difficult to make a go of things on one income. So women still need men for "provision" just as much as the man needs the woman for "provision." More importantly, you're missing that women don't date older men for money. They date older men because they think they're mature and perceive a certain type of protection and stability that comes from a man like that.

I just don't think this is true. There are absolutely some women who are into younger guys, but generally speaking, women want mature men because relationships are not primarily about sex for us. I'm 33 and the idea of dating anyone even age 25 is gross to me. They are not emotionally or mentally mature enough. They don't have the life experience to meet me halfway in a relationship.
