Psychology of dating older men
Such May-December couplings are no longer seen as relationship outliers — or indicative of deep-seated mommy issues.New French President Emmanuel Macron, 39, has a wife, Brigitte, who is 24 years his senior, while supermodel Heidi Klum, 43, has been dating art dealer Vito Schnabel, 30, for more than three years.
While they were “well-established and articulate,” she wasn’t physically attracted to them and found they had too many issues.
So, six years ago, she started dating studs in their 20s and 30s — and she hasn’t looked back.
Actress Gabrielle Union, 44, and her husband, Chicago Bulls player Dwyane Wade, 35, are often lauded as a power couple. “Older successful men are used to being in control of a woman, and that doesn’t sit well with modern women,” says Susan Winter, co-author of the book “Older Women, Younger Men: New Options for Love and Romance.” “Younger men have grown up with working women and have worked for female bosses, so they’re more likely to treat women equally.” Some in these relationships agree.
“When you’re an ambitious woman, it’s very difficult — you either have to subsume what you wanna do for somebody else, or live with the struggle to fight your partner on top of business survival, and it’s a very unhealthy relationship,” says Nicole Wipp, a 45-year-old attorney and entrepreneur, who found a perfect match in her husband, Marcus Sutherland, a 33-year-old paramedic.

DO be lovey dovey, but DON' T nickname him something based on his age (Fancypants is cool, though).
But when he was set up with Siegner by a mutual friend, matchmaker Sameera Sullivan, he says his life turned around.
“It was love at first sight,” Angal says of meeting Siegner, a buxom blonde who was a successful account executive at a graphic design company at the time.
There's already enough pressure when it comes to dating, why add more stress and think about the age thing if you really like this dude?
When it came to finding love in New York, Amber Soletti, a 42-year-old who lives in the West Village, had no luck dating older guys or men her own age.
I older men are just looking for a good time or notch on their belt. Whether that's a mature twenty-something, an immature thirty-something, or a quirky lady living with three dudes like Jess.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
