Most women who criticize young girls for being with older men pretending it's for money are the same who claim that they do not want to be loved only for their physical beauty but for their personality. That's pure hypocrisy: a young girl can precisely love an older man for his personality!
He is 52 and she is 22.
We don't need a research study to explain to us why older men enjoy dating younger women. But what about the women? Stereotypes aside, many women cite maturity, wisdom, and financial stability as good reasons to date men who are older.
But is there too much of a good thing? When women date and marry men old enough to be their fathers, it brings up the question of whether there should be an upper limit to an appropriate age gap.
Research reveals both evolutionary and social motives to explain women´s desire to date older men. But regardless of the legitimacy of motive, both parties in men-older age gap relationships often have to overcome stigma and stereotype.
