Proper age for dating
Men often pursue younger women, even if they aren’t interested in a family. Men certainly have a shorter average lifespan than women, but this doesn’t tell you anything about a particular guy.
The typical reason being, “that’s who I’m more attracted to.” But again, the “sex appeal boundary” gets pushed out further and further as women in their 50’s and 60’s find themselves as public sex symbols. Is it wise for a woman of 55 to consider a relationship with a man who is 65 or 70?
It might be easy to think of a very attractive 25-year-old man or woman saying, “I can date whomever I want, and I only want people who are within two years of my age either way.” While any person is free to do what they like when looking for a relationship, is it to the benefit of the searcher to cast in such a narrow fashion?
These are all interesting questions that reflect a real change in the way people age and date.
If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” – Mark Twain The question is simple, as life expectancy goes up and people take better and better care of themselves, do traditional notions of appropriate age differences in relationships matter?
However, when two emotionally INdependent people get into a relationship together, they become INTERdependent - they will be able to life more than triple what they would be able to on their own!
One of the factors which usually go unnoticed is the difference in ages of husbands and wives.“Couples are made in heaven”, that’s absolutely true but unusual age difference among some of these heavenly couples poses several problems.
Ray Guarendi As a family psychologist, I am often asked by parents when their children should begin dating. Let’s suppose that you’ve decided to begin dating discussions when your daughter turns 16.
There are certainly ways for older women to conceive children, but most men who want families tend to try and date women who are younger than 40.
Aside from that scenario, however, is there any reason that a 30-year-old woman can find love with a 37-year old and not a 44-year-old? Knowing that there are men of that age who are in great shape, physically attractive, interesting and successful is there a reason to categorically exclude these men? And while most people aren’t as attractive as these, it is certainly possible to meet someone significantly older who is sexy and attractive. Women in their 50’s will often narrowly restrict their dating range because they have a fear of meeting and falling in love with an older man – and then having to deal with his health issues.
