Dating a young woman
They’re more experienced, more chivalrous, and more likely to want to settle down than a twentysomething party boy.And yet, they probably resemble Penelope’s dad more than they resemble her brother….If you’re over the age of 40 and have ever said, “But I’m told I look five years younger than my age”, then you’re not immune to it yourself. And nobody has more choices than a 28-year-old woman. So if a woman finds it more appealing to just step into that world – to jump from the prolonged adolescence of the late 20’s into full-fledged settled-down womanhood – that could make sense.
Okay, Evan, I agree mostly with your opinion on younger men/older women. I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman – physically that is, but why would a 28-year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? I can totally understand why older men go for younger women.“As a dude, I’m told that I’m supposed to date girls my own age and take care of them, pay for dinner, and so on.But for that period of time, the roles were reversed. And it felt great—who doesn’t want to be taken care of?That’s when I understood what it was to be in that role, to be someone’s bitch, essentially.And I could appreciate it when it was my turn to take care of someone else.” The general consensus on cougardom is not so much a specific age as it is who you date.
