Daniel Craig makes me weak in the knees. Scratch the word “weak.” My knees feel buttery when I see his blue eyes and stern face. Is it too much information for you? Well, suck it up. I have been attracted to our new James Bond for years…Years! He looks weathered, and at the same time he looks elegant. He looks mature. He looks exquisite. I am going to stop here because this post is not about Daniel Craig, or James Bond, or me or you. This post is about the reasons why women prefer older men.
Top Five Reasons Why Women Prefer Older Men (IMHO)
Not all women who prefer older men are gold diggers. However, I have noticed that most of us maintain this perception. In our society when you see a younger woman with an older man, most of us almost automatically assume that the woman is a gold digger. “She is with him for the money,” we think. This perception is absolutely wrong. It is not all about money. Let’s not be that narrow-minded. An older man can offer much more than a younger man (no offense, guys.)
Women want stability. Young men are flighty, they are silly, they might be fun but most of the time they don’t know what they want.
Young men are not as far along in their careers as older men. They might be on their way to success but they are not there yet.
I believe that wisdom comes with age. Young men are not worldly enough. I am not saying that young guys are idiots, I just think that they have not been educated enough. Not yet. After all, women tend to mature faster than most men.
Who doesn’t like it when your man opens the door in front of you, pulls your chair in a restaurant, makes sure you are comfortable in a hotel room. I, personally, like it when a man is chivalrous and gallant. Older men will not be texting, or tweeting or Facebooking during a date because none of that is important.
Women like men with power. Now, before you get all emotional and start spitting saliva into my face, let me clarify. By power, I do not mean “money.” Power in this particular context means wisdom. It means knowledge. It means depth. It means inner strength. It means confidence (do not confuse it with arrogance.)
To summarize all the above: women prefer mature men. I admit that I am biased.
