6 Reasons We All Need to Start Dating Younger Men Already

For all of its follies and criticism,  online dating has done a lot for women’s sexual liberation, putting control in the hands of females who are becoming more vocal about what exactly they want.

You’re gonna want to set the age range on your dating profile wayyyyyy down

For all of its criticism,  online dating has done a lot for women’s sexual liberation, putting control in the hands of females who are becoming more vocal about exactly what they want.

Case in point: older women dating younger men.

Call them cougars, cheetahs, pumas or any other feline name society has put on them (or just call them women, please?) but there’s something exciting about the growing acceptance and visibility of women who won’t play by society’s rules (Madonna, Jlo, Kate Hudson to name a few, have all dated younger).

Because why should men get to have all the fun?

Here are 6 fabulous reasons why you should date a younger guy.

1. He’s not intimidated by you

It’s no secret that older men can be intimidated by a woman who is smart, independent, and has her shit together.

But for a younger guy, it’s not intimidating. In fact, it’s a huge turn on.

An older guy dating a woman who is more successful either has to deal with his own bruised ego, or, worse, sees her as a sugar mama. But a younger guy will appreciate you for what’s probably lacking in him - that innate confidence you only get from living your life long enough to truly understand who you are and what you want.

And that’s the kind of confidence a younger guy will run towards.

2. He’s all about living in the moment

Younger guys have less responsibilities, and with that comes a carefree, seize the day attitude. This means surprise pizza nights in bed, romantic weekend getaways, and doing random stupid stuff just to try and make each other laugh.

If you want to be taken out of your comfort zone (but still feel comfortable) try a dating site that’s popular but doesn’t have the same sleaze-factor of some of the swipe-heavy dating sites.

Zoosk is a good option - the site’s Behavioral Matching get to know your preferences and sends over relevant matches. And they take safety seriously (all photos are verified via a video selfie) which means no surprises when you take things offline.

Elite Singles is another favorite. Their matching is all about compatibility, based on answers to an in-depth personality quiz. So if you’d rather lead with your interests, not your photos, this is definitely a site to try.

3. He’s got a smaller romantic history to deal with

The thing about men is, once they get their heart broken, they become extremely guarded, and are afraid to fall in love again. Often, they’ll completely check out emotionally, and their dating life can be crippled for years.

The younger a guy is, the less chance there is of him being damaged by a past relationship when you meet him, and you’ll have a totally blank slate to begin a beautiful new relationship.

4. He’s more open minded

Older men tend to be stuck in their ways, whereas younger guys are far more open when it comes to having new experiences. They’re often more adventurous, fun-loving, and tend to lead a more active lifestyle, which are all extremely attractive qualities.

5. He’s eager to please in bed

Younger men have way more stamina in the bedroom, and are likely to be more experimental than their older counterparts. Chances are, they’ll wait until you’ve had yours before they allow themselves to climax, and you’ll be left feeling utterly adored and blissed out.

As women get older, we grow more comfortable in our bodies and begin to actively enjoy sex instead of just going through the motions or trying to please our partners - so a younger guy can also be the perfect person to try new sexual experiences with.

6. He’ll encourage you to follow your dreams

If you want to quit your corporate job to backpack around Asia, or you want to sell all your stuff and sail the world, or whatever other mid-life detour you’ve got on your mind - he won’t judge.

An older man might tell you to stay on the path you’re on, or make you feel silly, but a young guy will always encourage you to follow your heart because life is too damn short to spend it doing something you don’t love.

So next time you’re filling out your online dating preferences, why not widen that age gap a little? Head over to Zoosk and see what all the fuss is about.
