When it comes to the subject of love we always hope that there are no real significant barriers to its success.
In our hearts, if not in our heads, we’re convinced that love will always trump practical concerns such as money, social class, race and even gender. And what about age as it relates to older women involved with younger men?
Most men can only dream of dating a younger woman, even though it’s been found that the older we get as men, we still want to date younger women (a large part of society still refuses to believe that this is normal).
Culturally, the older woman/younger man dynamic is perceived as an oddity, or a fluke.Fortunately, that’s changing as more older-woman and younger-man couplings make headlines.Actress Robin Wright, 47, is engaged to fellow actor Ben Foster, 33.That being said, there is nothing like a bit of an age difference to bring out the insecurities in a man in a relationship with a young woman.If you’re dating a girl 10, 15 or 20 years younger than you, then it’s often natural to feel that this is too good to be true and the relationship won’t last.
