Imagine youre in a club, music is just thumbing against the walls, and everyone is just enjoying himself or herself. In the VIP room you spot a beautiful, slim figure sipping on her drink alongside her date, a handsome older man. Wait a minute you say to your self, Is that a receding hairline? As you stand there and just watch, you realize that they are a perfectly normal couple having a night out.
A few seats down you notice a lady who looks like shes 22 years old, shes just laughing away at a comment a young gentleman seated very closely to her has just said. As the lights shine on that gentlemans face he looks as though hes not even legal to be there. One would only question, what do they possible have to talk about. Yet, they look so happy and content, unaware of the curious glances aimed their way
So why? According to Dr. John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, a woman is attracted to an older man’s resources including his income, the quality of his job, his status in society and his character. Another common theory is that women mature faster than men and quickly get fed up with childish guys of their own age and look to older men for compatibility.
Thats not always the case says Peaches Jackson, 23 years old of Chicago. Peaches said that older men date younger women just so they could manipulate them and so they could feel younger about themselves.
But on the other hand there are women who seek these types of men, who are older and very financially stable, the nickname for these women are Gold Diggers.
While no statistics are readily available, older man with younger women have long existed and may be becoming more common and more socially acceptable. Financially successful men, the practice is so common that these younger women, usually second wives, have been given the nickname of trophy wives.
Sometimes thinking Age Aint Nothing But A Number can get you in a bit of trouble. Recently in the news, a major R&B artist R.Kelly has videotape circulating around of him allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl. To most people that sort of relationship is not acceptable, especially with a girl that young in age.
Shane Williams a 31 year old from Orland Park stated, This could easily be the other way around. Williams himself he likes to date older women. Why? Mainly because an older women is more up straightforward with her sexual appetite. Younger women on the other hand they have to tendency to be obsessed about the relationship and constantly try to look forward to the future.
Here is another thought to think about, Age doesn’t matter! It’s like saying let me check your shoe size and if it’s bigger than mine then I don’t love you. Sounds stupid!” But is it??
