Dating a guy who is younger than you
Have you considered dating a younger man, but are afraid of getting your heart broken, being humiliated and ultimately dumped for a younger woman? Our culture’s discomfort with reversing the norm of the younger woman-older man dynamic may come from a deep-rooted evolutionary instinct driving women to choose the older, wiser, more powerful alpha male over the untested young buck.
Or, it could be caused by something as shallow and immediate as a woman not wanting anyone to mistake her date for her younger brother or, God forbid, her son.
As long as the couple is happy and strong, it won’t matter what others think.
However, most women are approached by younger men, not the other way around. By not associating yourself with that term, you will erase any negative feelings toward having a relationship with a man much younger than yourself.
