Ladies love older men, whether the woman is young or older herself. Women find older men attractive for many reasons, and not all of them have to do with sex. If you are an older man trying to figure out why a younger woman may want to date you, here are a few reasons.
They Provide Security
Let’s face it people, when you’re in your twenties, the first thing on your mind is fun, the last thing is long term financial security. Older men have this down usually by their late thirties, early forties. They get their bills paid, in full, and on time and have money left over for extras like going out and putting gas in the car. The choice is never between a half a tank of gas or a night out with the boys drinking and picking up chicks. Of course there are exceptions to this rule, but those are few and far between. Women like knowing if an older man takes them out, when it’s time to pay the tab, dude has suddenly remembered he left his wallet in his other pants, or the credit/debit card comes back declined.
They Are Intelligent
Older men have more experience in just about everything, from personal experience to education. An older gentleman is more likely to have a stimulating conversation about world issues and not about who kicked who’s ass at last year’s Super Bowl. Women like sports, sure, but occasionally it’s nice to not have a pissing contest about your favorite sports team, or what crazy antic your roommate pulled at last week’s keg party.
They Have Relationship Experience
By the time most men are in their late thirties, they’ve had a few long term and short term relationships and know pretty much what they’re looking for in a woman and really have no intentions of ‘playing the field’. They may not outright tell a woman that they’re looking to get married (or in some cases remarried) or have a long term live-in relationship, but they also know how to make a relationship work. They know it’s not all one sided and that it takes compromise and active listening skills. There are few things more than a woman wants from a man than to listen to her and take her seriously and then consider what she’s said and apply it to the relationship to make it stronger.
They Are More Confident Than Younger Men
Ever see that older guy in the bar surrounded by young women at least 15 years or younger than him? It’s because he’s confident. He knows who he is and he doesn’t have to show off or be flashy to attract a female. He listens, he’s funny, he’s intelligent and he remembers the name of every woman he’s spoken to that night. If he’s on a solo date and another woman comes up to him, he doesn’t feel the need to talk to her to and keep them both hanging around, but politely says hello and returns his attention to his date. He doesn’t need constant female attention to be comfortable just hanging out. Face it. You wish you were that guy.
