Dating someone much younger than you
One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.If you haven’t found quite what you’re looking for on an online dating site, you aren’t alone.
That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.However, most women are approached by younger men, not the other way around. By not associating yourself with that term, you will erase any negative feelings toward having a relationship with a man much younger than yourself.Men are attracted to confident women regardless of their age. Younger women tend to have more insecurities as they are still figuring out their place in the world, drawn to dating “bad boys” and are more likely to play games with the men that they date.But it still means that one-third of online daters have not yet met up in real life with someone they initially found on an online dating site.One-in-five online daters have asked someone else to help them with their profile.One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
Fortunately, more women are realizing the flaw in these beliefs.
A recent study shows women are more likely to choose a younger man when dating online.
Women are especially likely to enlist a friend in helping them craft the perfect profile—30% of female online daters have done this, compared with 16% of men.
5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online.
Have you considered dating a younger man, but are afraid of getting your heart broken, being humiliated and ultimately dumped for a younger woman? Our culture’s discomfort with reversing the norm of the younger woman-older man dynamic may come from a deep-rooted evolutionary instinct driving women to choose the older, wiser, more powerful alpha male over the untested young buck.
