So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.
Indeed, this is a woman who would have the courage to love a younger man,” says Winter.
So Madonna may have famously flamed out with former husband Guy Ritchie, but that’s not to say that things won’t work out with Zaibat.
Says Winter, “More and more, I'm meeting young men partnered with women 15-20 years older, both of whom don't want to have children.” In fact, the desire to remain child-free may account for many younger men seeking older female partners in the first place. So a woman’s ability to successfully date a younger man may ultimately come down to being an independent thinker who is brave enough to buck the system (kind of like Madonna).
“Madonna lives her life boldly, openly and without regard for social convention.
Since you are 18 years old, you are allowed to date a woman half your age plus seven." Son looked at him and said, "Alright, Dad.
You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.
Besides, these younger men usually have little reason to stray.
Now you're dating someone 11 years younger than you. Wow, at 70, the 42-year-olds are probably some of your daughter's friends from high school who grew up hanging out at your house and who have now gone through divorces. When women date younger men, they are called "cougars," and people say they are messing around with younger guys.
Your friends are going to be really impressed that you can date a younger woman. She's been around the block a bit, but she's still not a luscious, incredible woman over the age of 30 yet. So at 46, you finally get to have incredible sex with a beautiful, mature woman -- but you have to wait 46 years to do it, according to this urban legend. That makes sense, considering the fact that an 18-year age difference is something to which you should really be accustomed. So finally, after all these years, you can actually date the kids you knew when they were kids. That's exactly what women are looking for at that age. Here they are, still looking great, young and fantastic, and there you are with your skin sagging everywhere. There is a negative connotation to a woman dating a younger man. Maybe try dating people who are within seven years of your age -- on either side.
It doesn’t help that women have been wired for centuries to equate their worth with youth and beauty. “It is often the limiting thoughts a woman has absorbed that can create problems for the couple,” says Winter.
“If she is fearful, insecure and doubting her merit, she will never be able to accept that her younger man loves her.” Winter adds that media reports about Demi Moore’s obsession with looking young are “the perfect example of how the ideal of youth and beauty can torture even the most lovely example of a modern-day woman.” The idea that one must maintain an illusion of youth to keep a younger partner is illogical. “It's an up-front buy that he's willing to accept, because he values the totality of who she is and what she brings to his life.” Talk about family planning.
