Woman dating man 5 years younger
This story is suggested and inspired by a reader idea and incorporates some themes and ideas I wasn't able to use in any of my previous stepmom or older woman stories.This is a work of fiction and does NOT represent or portray anyone I know, real or imagined.But what might the real benefits of dating someone younger be?Turns out, experts say compatibility between two people who just happen to have an age gap isn’t as unusual as we may think.Dad took it hard and barely got reelected for city council his last election.
“When you open your age range filter by including younger people among your possibilities, you’ve got a whole new group of folks to date.” Think of it this way: Tapping into that bigger pool may mean an increased chance of finding new love. You may get a boost of energy Unlike dating an older partner, younger partners may be less inclined to be jaded, and more likely to be open minded and energetic, Masini said.Same thing goes for adoption: “A younger partner in an adoption situation is probably going to have more energy to devote to the ups and downs of that journey,” she noted.If you’re a man who is trying to grow or start a family, being open to the idea of a relationship with a younger female partner may be a wise choice.“It can be nice to have someone who raises the bar and encourages your personal best in romance and your sex life together.” And, she added, “Many older partners find younger partners more attractive.If you can drop the judgment and not politicize this choice, and just see it as a fact, a younger partner has appeal that older ones don’t.” MAKE UP OR BREAK UP? You may gain a parenting partner Believe it or not, younger partners may be more open-minded about the idea of lending a hand in step-parenting your kids, Masini said.
Data seem to support that idea: A 2003 AARP survey of about 3,500 single men and women ages 40 to 69 found about 66 percent of men want to date younger women and 34 percent of women want to date younger men.
