Men dating much younger women
Men also have a lower life expectancy than women, leaving women in the 75-and-up age bracket with fewer and fewer choices of heterosexual partners.An age difference of up to 10 years is generally not looked at askance by anyone who knows how old each partner is, but as that gap gets closer to 20, things start to look a bit more off balance.My last relationship was with a single mother 3.4 years older than me, lasted almost 5 years.I was willing to give up having children because I thought she was a great catch and one of the possible soule mates, lol. So, going by what we’ve learnt from testimonials I’ve gathered out there in the real world, if we want to increase our odds of finding, attracting and keeping a man, we may consider taking a more fun and playful approach to life. And not just because these men are “going through a midlife crisis.” (Though, admittedly, sometimes that is true.) In the hundreds of impromptu interviews I’ve conducted over the years with single (and hitched) men, a few commonalities have emerged. And yet statistics show that women over 40, 50 and 60 have lower—way lower, like cross-your-fingers-and-pray— chances of meeting a long term partner.Whether it’s the new dad George Clooney (56) and his 18-year-younger wife, Amal, or Donald Trump (70) and his First Lady, Melania (age 47), commentators become psychoanalysts, suggesting that the younger woman is clearly seeking a father figure.Similar stories are triggered by the (much less-common) pairing of a younger man with an older woman, as with 39-year-old French president Emmanuel Macron, and his wife, Brigitte, 64.
I am far from a relationship expert but I do know that a 'real one' requires strong commitment.
The sociocultural perspective for understanding the pairing of older men and younger women explains not just that younger women seem physically more attractive to aging males, but that the older man represents socially valued attributes that lead his younger partner to to bond with him.
With age, men may acquire greater power or possess more property, financial and otherwise.
She stopped being fun after we moved in and things went down hill.
I'll turn 67 in two weeks and have been out of a relationship for the last three years.
