If you’ve lived anywhere with a viable internet connection, you may have seen and heard people talking about how hard dating is getting. From a scarce pool of limited options to the many forms of ghosting to the fact that a lot of women are now more or less into much older men.
That last tidbit, by the way, is being scrutinized by many as something odd at best and creepy and concerning at worst.
And because of burgeoning curiosity, we’ve decided to dive into the actual reasons some women fancy older men. Buckle up, it’s a ride.
Older men come free of drama
Many of the complaints women have about men their own age is that they’re kind of incredibly dramatic and are always ready to go cold over the slightest thing.
Older men, on the other hand, have been through their dramatic stages and have matured, so they aren’t likely to fall within the same category.

A lot of you reading this might have immediately assumed the women who go for older men have, for lack of a better word, daddy issues. And this is where it gets tricky.
See, for a lot of women, dating older men is simply a matter of preference, though therapists have proved that sometimes this preference is a result of attachment and paternal issues.
