Dating much younger women
says that like any relationship, success depends on what the people involved are bringing to the table."You can have a 'young' 50 year old or a very mature 25 year old, depending upon their life experience.But a woman over 50 has often shed inhibitions about their body, and what they need to achieve orgasm, that a 27-year-old may still be grappling with.
And according to a 2017 study from dating website Elite Singles, 450,000 of their male users between age 20 and 29 preferred dating an older woman (with 11 years being the most desirable gap).
Jess Carbino, the former in-house sociologist for dating apps Tinder and Bumble, says that her research with women over fifty revealed a strong desire to date men eight or more years younger, in part because they assume that age group will be more open to new experiences.
"They find the aging process for men to be more accelerated than among women, in terms of their desires for exploration, and are interested in younger men who may be less set in their ways," she says.
If things have progressed past fling status, Carbino says to tackle this conversation as soon as possible.
"Those who are becoming serious should have discussions regarding their desires around family generally," she reminds us.
