10 Reasons Why Younger Men Like Older Women

by | Dating Tips, Love

May 22, 2024

Have you noticed that younger men seem to like older women? Everyone, especially older teenagers and guys in their early twenties talks about how older women make for better spouses. In this article, we show you why that might be so—here are ten reasons why younger men like older women.

1. Looks

Some women may look a little more gorgeous as they age. 

It is true that many women age like fine wine. With age comes an accentuation of features. 

Their butts become rounder, and their boobs become better looking. 

Younger guys are usually very attracted to these features. 

Tunde tells us, “An older woman is going to be much thicker and will be very sexy to look at.”

Many others agree with him. 

Some men also believe that older women have a rather simplistic but better fashion sense. 

Dominik tells us that whilst younger women may keep up with recent fashion trends better, older women make the old-fashioned things look far prettier. 

Men like older women for this very reason. 

2. Healthy attachment styles

With youth comes the raging strength of emotions. 

Young men realize this because they, too, sometimes have very intense feelings. They know that their female counterparts experience such feelings as well, leading to a rather unhealthy attachment style. 

Ubong tells us that: “Younger women, especially ones who are not so experienced with love and dating, may be more likely to become obsessed and ruin their relationships.”

Older women, on the other hand, have come to develop healthy attachment styles over time. They don’t see the need to obsess over anyone. This is why younger men prefer older women.

3. Sexual and romantic experience

Whilst men may chase after innocence a lot of the time, there are some exceptions: some instances when innocence isn’t exactly what a man wants. 

This is especially true when one brings up the subject of sexual pleasure. Men want pleasure in bed. And as such, quite a number will go for a woman who promises that. A woman with experience. 

Older women have a lot of sexual and romantic experiences. This is why younger men really love to be with them. 

The older women must have, of course, gathered these experiences from their previous relationships. If they have had a lot of relationships, then of course they have had the time to do a lot of learning and relearning. 

The younger man typically doesn’t want to do a bulk of the work to make the love stay. He just wants to love his woman and depend on her love for him. 

4. An ability to nurture

Older women have a much better ability to nurture than their younger counterparts, which is why many young men love older women. 

Bear in mind that the ability to nurture involves:

Being able to identify and empathize with a person’s weakness: since older women display a kind of affection that is very outward driven, they are usually able to identify and empathize with a man’s struggles. 

They are able to know what a man feels and help him get through it. 

Being able to grow one’s positive emotions: all forms of nurturing will encourage the growth of bright emotions. An older woman will usually prioritize the good emotions her partner feels. Since she is likely to be a traditional woman, she will try to make him happy. 

I don’t know a young man who wouldn’t be accepting of a woman trying to make him happy. 

Lorin says: “Older women bring the best out of a young man. That’s the best way to put it. She just nurtures you until you begin to show higher levels of maturity.”

5. Financial independence

Older women are often very financially independent. Of course, they are older. And this means they have a lot of experience. 

Their experience cuts across almost all areas of life, including their finances. 

So, on average, one should expect an older woman to have made more money than her younger counterparts in the same society. 

Men love the idea of financial independence in a woman since it promises them some form of safety, making them see that their money doesn’t exactly make a difference. 

A man loves different when he sees that his money can stay in his pocket because his woman can foot her own bills.

6. Healthy jealousy

Men like it when a woman is jealous of them. This is especially true if the woman in question is able to showcase some form of healthy jealousy. 

Jealousy is such a big compliment to men. 

A man begins to feel more loved when a woman shows she is jealous of him. 

Especially if she is able to show this jealousy in a healthy way. 

7. Spontaneity

Older women are also sometimes very spontaneous, and this adds to the fun of the relationship. 

Explains why younger men love them. 

Younger men are also very spontaneous. The difference is that when dealing with younger women, in contrast to when dealing with older women, spontaneity is heavily reduced because the man has to be the one to choose almost everything. 

The older woman chooses too! She can tell the man where to have a date and when to. Men love to depend sometimes. Especially younger men. 

8. Attachment to previous older women

Younger men may love older women because of the attachment they have had to older women in their lives. 

These women may have been past lovers or, sometimes, even family. Like a kind older sister. Like a beautiful best friend.

9. Clearer love languages

Older women speak clearer love languages. 

When an older woman loves a younger guy, it becomes clear why. She makes him see that love every single time she has the chance. 

10. Fun

“Some of the most fun women you meet as a man will be women who are much older than you. Especially ones that love you.”

— Ubong. 


Older women make young women taste strange flavors of affection.
