Why Elder Men Prefer Younger Women?

The “Frisky” periodical reveals that for millennia, men have wanted to date, court, and/or marry younger women. Even today there are still plenty of couples with a huge age gap between them.

When most of us see a 50-year-old man walking down the street arm in arm with a 22-year-old woman, we might make the assumption that he’s a sugar daddy. We make a judgment that he’s established and wealthy and she’s sexy. But is that always the case with a relationship between an older man and younger woman?

Here are some of the main reasons why elder men prefer younger women.


men prefer energetic young women
Younger women tend to be healthier. They can party all night with minimal sleep. Of course, this translates to bedroom antics as well: Being fit and flexible means that a woman in her 20s is physically able to do things that women who are a few decades older.

Mid-Life Crisis

because of having life crisis men prefer young women

Many baby boomer men have worked non-stop their entire life, straight from the moment they were out of college or high school, so a lot of them didn’t enjoy their younger years of life. The culture was also stricter back then as well.

Snagging a young sexpot helps many older men validate their life, enjoy something on their own, and break up the monotony and predictability of their lives.


Sexually Comfortable

Overall, millennial women are more sexually adventurous than previous generations, or at least they can be more open about it. The internet can teach these women things that weren’t talked about enough in back in the day.


No Responsibilities

old men don't have responsibilities in front of young women

Wealthy older men who exclusively date young women probably don’t feel the need to be emotionally available. They just meet up a few times a week to “have fun” or go on luxurious vacations together.

Ego Boost

young women next to elder men make their ego higher
Having a drop-dead gorgeous woman on his arm at social functions must make him feel like a billion bucks. High-powered men love competition, and having a head-turning, a modelesque woman on his arm will one-up a lot of his peers.
