In the world of dating, sometimes you find the best partners by veering outside the norm.
Nevertheless, doing so can also force you to step outside of your comfort zone and start making moves you have never made before.
Although most women prefer dating men who are the same age or older, experts assert that 31% of women prefer dating younger men.
This means there is a large portion of the female population just waiting to find their young Prince Charming. However, although many things in our society are changing, on the whole, it is still the norm for men to approach women rather than the other way around.
Either way, confident, older women are often considered intimidating, not just by younger men, but by society at large.
Are you an older woman looking to find your unfledged future hubby? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Why You Should Date a Younger Man
If you’re on the fence about dating younger men, here is a list of reasons that may just convince you to take a dip in the fountain of youth:
More Open-Minded: One of the top benefits of dating younger men is that they are often more open-minded. Unlike older men, younger men are less set in their ways and thus, more open to new experiences.
Take the Wheel: Another major benefit of dating younger men is that it puts you in the power position. Although women who prefer older men generally prefer to be submissive, those who prefer younger men usually prefer to be in control. Here’s your chance. Go, girl!
Genuine Collaborations: Similarly, many older men are intimidated by women who are confident and dominant. This often causes them to compete rather than collaborate. However, when you are dating a younger man, they often admire your confidence and ability to lead. This makes it much easier to collaborate on plans and goals.
Get Some Satisfaction: Lastly, one of the greatest perks about dating a younger man is that you are more likely to be satisfied in all areas of your relationship. Studies have shown that women who date men that are 10 years younger or more satisfied with every facet of their relationship.
Tips for Asking a Younger Man Out
If you need some tips for asking out a younger man, consider the following:
Steer Clear of Being a Cougar: Although it may seem to be a fun way to make light of dating younger men, you should steer clear of being labeled a cougar. This is because this is a stereotype that is associated with being “on the prowl”, a “sugar mama”, etc. If you want to be taken seriously, you should not refer to yourself as such.
Show Your Confidence: Since younger men often prefer older women with confidence, you should approach them showing just how confident you are. In other words, you shouldn’t really be asking them out, so much as you are telling them when you’re going out and where. If you’re really feeling spicy, you might even want to tell them what to wear, but no pressure.
Be Direct: Also, if you are confident, you should have no issue with telling them exactly what you want. If you are looking for a fling, say it. If you want to date for the long-term, you need to say that as well. Even if you are looking for a man who you can turn into a stay-at-home dad, you should disclose this information sooner than later. Do not mislead him or let him decide what type of relationship you will have. Make your demands and before you settle for less, go fishing for a new man.
Don’t Skimp on the Compliments: No matter, if you’re a man or a woman, receiving compliments, is always a great thing. If you are so attracted to a younger man that you want to ask him out, tell him why! Odds are, he hasn’t been approached like this by many women and you will score major points just for telling him why you think he’s so hot.
Asking out a younger man is not as hard as it may seem. Even if you have never asked out a man in your life, younger men are often intimidated by older women, especially when you’re gorgeous and doing well in life (which we’re sure you are!).
This means they will be less likely to approach you for a date and much more likely to admire your fierceness from afar.
Either way, if you are going to ask a younger man out, do bring your A-game. Although younger men may be smitten by your status, age, or life experience, they, like most men, are attracted to women who are charismatic, charming, and who show that they are genuinely interested.
