Interestingly, the same survey showed that “One in three people think a bit of immaturity helps in bonding well with children,” and I concur.
Rather than allow that to make a case for older men being great fathers to infants, that should make the case for young women of childbearing age to mate with young men their own age. Young men are encouraged to be a bit more mature, but remain goofy enough to be playful dads, and young women will hopefully be able to retain a life-long partner instead of an aging and eternal player willing to discard her as soon as she turns 40, or one she wants to ditch as soon as she’s old enough to realize what she’s gotten herself into.
When I was 25, I married a man 12 years older than me.
At the time, our relationship seemed perfectly natural to me.
Here then are the four mistakes men most often make when trying to attract younger women.
Mistake 1: Trying To Act Younger This is the granddaddy of them all.
According to Hugo Schwyzer, this age dynamic is sexist and hurts men and women alike.
Your Facebook name, profile photo and other personal information you make public on Facebook (e.g., school, work, current city, age) will appear with your comment.
Christopher Ryan of Psychology Today argues – in direct response to Schwyzer – that there’s an “innate biological desire men hold for women in their most fertile years,” and that such a desire is perfectly natural.
We’ve all heard this idea before: men are designed to want to spread their seed, so in spite of their age and inability with age to care for children, they remain attracted to women who can propagate their DNA.
