The usual, more conventional thing is for women to date older men.

However, as times change, it reflects in the society, and by influence, the way relationships work.

More women are however ditching convention, upturning settled beliefs and settling for younger men – sometimes younger than they are by as much as 7 years or so.

And quite laudably, the society is coming to accept this and as time passes on, lesser people are seeing this as odd.

Of course, people still laugh and make remarks such as ‘cougars’ and all, but is an older woman dating a younger man really so bad?

These four things point to the opposite.

1. Younger men are often more physically driven

Younger people, in general, have more physical energy.

So you can rest assured that you are dating someone with abundant energy, vivacity and a bouncy attitude.

There’s also the willingness to try out several fun activities that involve energy and outdoor activities.

This abundance of energy should also  interest you if you desire some fiery action in the bedroom. Generally speaking, a man in his early twenties will have a libido turned to the max, and raring to go at all times, as compared to an older man. Say, approaching 40 or thereabouts.

2. They have fewer responsibilities

The younger men are, the lesser their responsibilities will be.

They really do not have much to worry about, and many of them are out to experiment, and will not be thinking of settling down in a number of years to come.

Hence they are ideal for you if you are actually looking forward to taking things slow, and hoping for the best down the line, instead of the speedy trip down to the altar.

3. Younger men are less likely to be cynical

When you enter a relationship with a younger man, there is every possibility that you would have dated more people than him. [You might even be his first or second]

As opposed to older men who might have had their hearts broken on some occasions, younger men have lesser experience with heartbreaks and are therefore not as jaded as older men might be.

Some older men may be quite distrustful of you, expecting that you’ll do something that an ex did, or they may not put as much effort into a relationship as they would have in the past, making it seem like they don’t care very much.

A younger man on the other hand enters the relationship on a much cleaner slate.

4. He might be thrilled to have you

Especially if you are really hot and still in very good shape, you might be a source of pride for the younger man you date.

If his friends hail him for ‘catching’ someone older, more experienced and of a higher status than the girls they are dating, he’ll be filled with a kind of testosterone-boosted pride, which will in turn make him worship you, and really be into you.

Who knows, there might be a ring somewhere along the line.

Who says it’s impossible?
