Women dating older men... Such relationshps are now very popular for all different reasons and fall into different categories. The first division you have is that some are for love and others are for sexual or practical reasons. There is a huge difference between a woman wanting to be with an older and more mature man because she loves him and enjoys his company or because he has a good job and earns a lot more than her and can provide for her. He may not mind this but he often forgets that if he did not have the income she would go off with another person, maybe anyone at all who has the income. So she is not choosing the difference in age at all, she is making do with it because it is part of the whole package and she cannot have the wealth without that too. When a woman genuinely prefers someone who is not as young as her then you have to ask why.

Quite often when a guy who is not as young as her it is either because he is supposedly more reliable and she has a fear that a younger man would run off with someone else or cheat on her, or because she believes this more mature person is wiser and more knowledgeable about life and experienced with things or because she likes the air of power that can come with it. To know that she is more desirable physically than him can be a big turn on for her because it gives her control. She knows that he will be grateful when she cuddles him, kisses him or invites him into her bed and he is probably going to be more patient about waiting and put up with more along the way either because he really likes her a lot or because he is limited in other options.

The sad fact is that if we have a lot to offer a prospective partner we can ask for more in return. Hence a beautiful young woman will get far more offers usually than an old ugly woman. If they have a great deal to offer then they will be inundated with offers. I once knew a woman who was married to a very skinny, ugly, scruffy and boring man who had no personality, no money, no job and nothing about him at all that would have been of interest to anyone with options. She proudly told me that he never cheated on her but it was clearly because he was under her thumb and never had the chance or was of no interest to other women. This woman loved the air of being superior this gave her over him because she wanted to control everything and make all of the decisions. It was not by accident that she ended up with a boring, ugly old man. It was choice because with it she could call the shots and be queen of the ball.

Females with more esteem and confidence or who likes to take risks and live one day at a time would have preferred a man who was far more exciting and sexy but never knowing what was around the corner. Sometimes it is as simple as choosing happiness now with perhaps a nasty surprise later or boredom or contentment now with a more chance it will not end. Whether this is good or bad can only be decided by each individual. Come to our site at http://www.askagonyaunt.com for more about relationships and love by experts and those who care.
