The stereotype that older men are usually attracted to much younger women may not fully reflect reality, a new study suggests.The study of Finnish adults found that many heterosexual men were, in fact, interested in women substantially younger than they were.But I would never do that to my Dad who would be very upset if I did. When I meet a man and I am without my husband, I’ll place within the first minutes of the conversation that “my husband blablabla… That usually is enough to make my state of mind really clear.I did the same thing as a girl, talking about my boyfriend (actually existing or not) early on in the conversation. And some people are just not faithful, but contrary to popular opinion, it’s not worse in France than anywhere else (and several studies demonstrate it). It’s in our genes and it’s socially accepted in France.“They report an interest in both younger and older women.”And of course in the real world, Antfolk stressed, neither men nor women base their romantic choices on age alone.“We look for many different characteristics when choosing a partner, and age is just one of them,” he said.For the study, Antfolk surveyed nearly 2,700 adults between the ages of 18 and 50.An older woman’s sexual appetite may be more ravenous than researchers had previously thought, a new French study suggests.Published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the study shows women in early menopause have the same sexual interests and practices as those who are a bit younger.
I date younger men off and on over periods of 2, 3, 4, 5 — or even 15 years.
It is so funny to see how some social behaviors are exactly the same between France and the US, and others are completely different. Well, this was a big shock to me when I arrived in the US. I understood of course a man and a woman could be interested in each other in a romantic way, let me reassure you.
One of the very obvious difference is the dating game. But I was not aware that accepting to go out to dinner with a man alone gave the signal that I was possibly romantically interested in him.
They may go on to date women their own age, or to move to different places, but we stay friends. And then every so often, their relationships end, and they return to me. When lots of stamina (and blissfully short recovery periods) meets confidence and experience, it’s a terrific combination.
Some women tell me they’d feel too insecure about their bodies to sleep with someone young, but when you operate on the criterion I do — that they have to be nice — you meet younger men who appreciate everything about older women.
