You would not be spending time pursuing older women if you felt threatened or were experiencing reverse age-stereotyping.
Remember that no matter their success in the outside world, most every woman, and person, wishes to feel adored and appreciated.
In both cases, this may be due to the allure of the possibilities that come with mixing ages, interests and backgrounds.
Many women who have reached an above-average level of success in their careers grew up in a time when there weren’t that many women in positions of great leadership or authority.
Of course, you can have a relationship with a person of any age, but maybe you don’t know what you’re looking for, or you notice the dates that feel most comfortable or promising are with guys that are younger than you.
Or you’re a young man who feels drawn to older women.
Until the last decade, there have been far less female CEOs or women in high-level managerial positions.
When you’re a successful woman who gravitates toward younger men, it may be because you find in them, a non-defensive willingness to absorb what you can provide.
If he likes to dominate here, let him show you how he can cherish and please you.
But mix it up – you don’t always have to be in control in this arena, and he may relish the chance to show off his skills in satisfying you, but sometimes you can take the lead and blow his mind.
If you are tired of dating in your own age pool because maybe those women are immature, or not ready to commit to something more than casual come and go relationships, honor the woman you are with by verbalizing what she means to you and letting her know without question what you bring to the table.
Eventually, you both can come up with joint interests and goals as a partnership, and the age question will melt away into a distant memory.
Through the years many have watched, or already understood their mothers and sisters to have a powerful say in how they regard women.
