A new survey of over active members SugarDaddyForMe. The site's members include younger women sugar babies seeking older men sugar daddies , with an arrangement that sometimes comes with love and companionship. More often, it's assumed there's a price tag of sex and money for both parties. In a world where Hollywood has embraced Cougar relationships, it's interesting to note that 7 percent of the women surveyed would date a man who was a full 60 years older than them. Other statistics include 27 percent said they would date a man 40 years older and 13 percent would date a man 50 years older.
'I Dated A Much-Younger Man—Here’s What It Was Like’
Why would a tall, handsome man date a woman 20 years his senior? | Online dating | The Guardian
When I met my boyfriend Jesse, I was 28 and he was 24 — not too much of a dating age difference in the grand scheme of things, but to hear some of my friends at the time tell it, you'd think we were Harold and Maude — or at the very least, Ashton and Demi. In the early days of our relationship, I got a lot of a lot of exasperated eyerolls, "you go, girl"s, and questions about whether I was technically old enough to be a cougar. I also had a lot of friends who couldn't believe how dumb I was — didn't I remember how difficult it was to get a guy to commit at age 24? Why would I want to go through that again? Of course, I didn't "go through that again," and five years into our relationship, no one really cares about how old either of us are.
The reality of dating a much younger man
The 8-year rule states that you shouldn't date anyone outside of an 8-year age range. It can happen. I just won't try it any more. I've dated or tried to date women who are older, younger and, if you'll believe it, exactly the same age as I am.
My husband is a beat poet, a professional fundraiser, and a proud father. He also happens to be 35 years older than me and 60 years older than our son. Somewhat ironically, his first name is Young. If you had asked me five years ago who I imagined marrying and starting a family with, a man old enough to be my father would not have been top of the list.
