Older guys dating younger women

"They would have suited each other perfectly," she said.

'It wasn't until half way through dinner that I realized he was actually hitting on my daughter." A friend gave a dinner party recently for 30 single people and the only woman who received any follow-up whatsoever was still in her forties.

Which is why it baffles me that it’s always assumed that it’s only men who like their partners young. (I’ve always had a thing for Patrick Dempsey.) Holy. ‘I’ve dated older guys who have gone in way too hard way too soon with talking about getting married,’ agrees Katherine, 25. It didn’t take long before I moved my maximum age back down to 34.

Another, who's even older, asked me to introduce him to my 36-year-old friend when he heard she wanted to become pregnant.

My friend Anna recently set up her 52-year-old girlfriend with a man of 56.

I once got with a 37-year-old who had absolutely no idea what he was doing down there.

The 20-somethings all had way more of a clue than him.

The first guy I properly dated was exactly a year younger than me (we shared the same birthday, I thought it was meant to be) and the last guy I dated was four years younger than me.

I recently found out that a musician I have a crush on is 21. However, women dating younger men isn’t weird to me – my dad is younger than my mum, my uncle is way younger than my aunty and my brother is younger than his wife. Me and my best friends have a running joke that we always fancy hot, younger guys (We’ll always have a thing for fresh-faced indie boys, God love ’em). ) and thought I’d increase my age limit to 39 to see if there were any silver foxes about. You could smell the desperation through the phone – it was like they had their mum breathing down their necks asking for grandkids.

Partly because the current financial climate doesn’t allow the latter, but also because I enjoy my freelance, nomadic lifestyle.

I tend to meet guys while I’m away travelling/working overseas and most of them are younger than me, but age really isn’t as big of a deal when you’re travelling as it is back home.

If you connect with someone, you connect with someone.

I look young for my age and I act young for my age, so why should I feel ashamed (or even surprised) that I’m attracted to guys a few years younger than me?

Plus, research says that women hit their sexual prime later than men,so you may well be doing yourself a favour going younger.
