Do you have any idea how many older women dating younger men there are? An AARP survey showed that one-third of women over the age of 40 are dating a man younger than she is. This trend of older women dating younger men is growing and if you find yourself in such a relationship, you’re not alone.

Older women who date younger men have collectively become known as “cougars.” The trend may be a result of the divorce rates in American families.

If a 50 year old woman gets a divorce after 25 years of marriage, she’s unlikely to rush into the arms of a still older man. She may want to sow her oats with a sexy younger guy.

Because she is not considering having children with the new man, his age may be unimportant. Further, women are likely to have stronger sexual needs at this point in their lives than their male counterparts. A younger man fits the bill.

Younger men, on the other hand, may find that the confidence an older woman brings to the bedroom to be quite sexy. Used to always having to take the lead, younger men can have their sexual needs indulged.

Younger men may also like the fact that successful career women do not expect them to be the primary breadwinner in the relationship. This gives the younger man time and space to finish graduate school, become a concert pianist, or start a business.

One of the problems in older women dating younger men relationships is that the men may feel a need to father children at some point. Because the woman is probably not able to bear children at this point in her life, the man may start to look elsewhere if he wants a family of his own.

Still, celebrities like Demi Moore and Susan Serandon have shown that older women can successfully pull off relationships with younger men.

What is some advice for younger men who find themselves in love with an older woman?

1.) Date an older woman for the right reasons. The age of your date should be the least important thing about her. You should look for shared interests and values.
2.) Understand that there is a generational difference. You have to balance “being yourself” with her expectations of how a gentleman behaves.
3.) Appreciate her career. Too many men her own age have rigid stereotypes about a woman’s place in the workplace hierarchy. But if your cougar has achieved a significant leadership position in her job, be supportive. She’ll love you for it.

There is a growing trend of older women dating younger men. If you are part of the wave, enjoy the many opportunities you have to find the woman of your dreams.
