Naturally, golddigging is a conditional arrangement that can be short-lived.After all, older men will only hold onto their arm candy so long as it pleases them.So, despite male attraction preferences, and occasional stories of elite older guys (like celebrities and CEOs) dating much younger women, age-gap relationships are pretty rare.
And the attraction runs deeper than anything biology or material possessions can explain.
And, in such cases, you’re dealing with all the little nuances that make the younger woman dating an older man scenario just like any other relationship.
So, why is there hostility toward age gap relationships in the first place?
I believe that the whole “daddy issues” put down is usually a way for jealous people negatively impacted by age-gap relationships to shame those in them.
Usually, at some point in any debate or discussion on the matter, someone throws out the classic nugget of wisdom, “well, the girl obviously has ‘daddy issues.'” It sounds logical right?
A woman who likes an older man must have a bad relationship with her father, even maybe having been abandoned by him.
While fairly normal throughout most of history, relationship and attraction age gaps are a controversial topic these days (sometimes ruled out as bad, being a victim of the mythical “Half Your Age Plus Seven Rule“).
In some cases, society is fairly accepting, like when hot and established older celebrities like John Stamos or Harrison Ford date women ten to twenty years younger (or even more).
Maybe sexual chemistry is related to the size of the man’s wallet.
After all, some younger women don’t want a sexually charged older man; some younger women prefer a man who can shower her with Birkin bags and fill her closet with Manolo Blahnik shoes.
But, let’s see what science has to say on the matter.
