10 Reasons Why Older Guys Like Younger Women

by | Dating Tips, Love

May 16, 2024

It is no news that older men prefer to date younger women. The question is, why? Are they being predatory? Of course not. They are just responding to a subtle biological hint. In this article, I’ll show you 10 reasons why men like to date younger women. 

1. They’re pretty

Men will always go after looks. If a woman looks good, you can trust that guys will go after her.

A majority of younger women look better than their older counterparts. 

Of course, they are at an age where everything seems to support them—including their hormones. 

Estrogen makes their skin look better. With collagen fibers making the skin very tough and elastic. 

Their faces are brighter. Their smiles are enough to pull anyone in. 

Their bodies are thick and firm. Their bras look very great in bras and bikinis, even when they’re naked.

Men are driven by what they see, and as a result, many will go after women who are physically appealing. 

2. They’re feminine

Men love women who are feminine

This is the true nature of things; we attract the opposite of what we are, like opposite poles of a magnet, which attract each other. 

A healthy masculine man is going to be attracted to feminine features. 

He assesses these features on the basis of look and attitude. 

The younger woman looks feminine. And in many cases, she may also act and sound feminine too. 

The hallmark of femininity is grace in speech, grace in style, and a beautiful kind of innocence. 

Guys are drawn to these things the way women are drawn to men who are masculine.

3. Their lack of experience is innocent

Younger women are mostly very inexperienced. Of course, they are too young to have experienced some things, including pain and trauma. 

This makes them very innocent. 

Men are pulled towards this innocence because it promises a healthier and more self-aware woman. 

Women who have too much experience and are not innocent are almost always a red flag to a man because he assumes that her lack of innocence means that she has had a lot of experiences that may have traumatized her. 

Experiences that may have affected her deepest beliefs so much that she becomes unable to experience love the way love should be experienced. 

The one who has not been hurt experiences love and life the way real love should be experienced. 

4. They have a big drive for more

Younger women may have a lot of strength, as they’re not tired or exhausted by trying and trying their hands at stuff.  

They carry around the passion for a better life and a better future for themselves. 

This passion is very attractive, especially when it is directed towards a hobby or some creative endeavor. 

Men really love creative women. 

And to be fair, I think their love for creative women is just directed towards a creative woman’s passion. 

This is why you see that a lot of guys like writers or painters or artists. 

5. Other men want them

Men are biologically wired to compete. 

It’s a biological wiring that shows up way down on the scale of evolution. 

Even lower animals compete with each other to get the best females.   

If a woman has got many men chasing her, especially if this man is of high value, then many other men are going to want to date her. 

Younger women naturally have more men interested in them. 

This means that even more guys will be interested in them as time goes on.

6. They’re eager to please

Younger women seem to have a bigger desire for comfort, so they are less likely to revolt against things that older women will naturally revolt against.  

This makes them very eager to please their partners and keep the peace in the relationship. 

This ability to keep peace and to please one’s partner is very attractive to men, so men will be drawn towards it, which makes men very drawn towards younger women. 

This is not to say that older women are problematic or less eager to please. It is to say that older women have more dating experience, so they may be hard to please because their standards will be too high. 

7. They learn

With youth comes the desire to learn. 

Younger women are very open to learning. And since a man is often very proud and happy to teach his woman, he loves a woman who learns.    

In our survey to find out the 10 things a man seems to love in his woman, the desire, or the willingness to ask for help,” was very high up the list. 

Men love it when women are able to ask for help, especially if they’re asking from a place of love and not from a place of entitlement. 

8. They may have a good earning potential

Younger women may have a higher potential since they are ready to learn and ready to try their hands at things they don’t exactly fully understand. 

As we already know, people who are able to take risks are people who earn more. 

The younger woman loves to take risks as long as she is kept safe by her man. 

Any man loves to see this, and so most men will go after a woman who is younger.

9. A reason men may not even know themselves

Some men barely even know why they like younger women. 

Ask them, and they will tell you: “Heck, I don’t even know.”

That’s the truth. They don’t know. It’s hard to tell, but the desire is there.  

10. Good sex

Younger women have good sex. They may not be physically great at sex. But added to the fact that they are willing to learn, they are also very eager to let go and experience the true intimacy of sex and desire. 


Men like to date younger women because they’re drawn to grace and poise.
