What Attracts Women to Older Men?

Have you ever wondered what attracts women to older men? And no, we’re not talking about the kind of attraction between dirty old millionaires and young beautiful gold diggers. We aren’t talking about confused young women either who are searching for father figures in their boyfriends. Rather, we’re talking about genuine and long-lasting attraction that has the potential to deepen into love.

What attracts women to older men?

MATURITY

Many studies show that females mature before males do, and it’s possible that maturity is what attracts women to older men. Given the choice, who would want date an immature guy over a mature guy? An immature guy, for instance, would not understand that there are times when you have to prioritize work over relationship. A mature guy, placed in the same situation, won’t just show his understanding. He’ll also be supportive and maybe even volunteer to take over kitchen or laundry duties to lessen your burdens.

CONFIDENCE

There’s a slight but essential difference between confidence and maturity, but both usually comes hand in hand. Confidence may be what attracts women to older men as well because it’s an irresistible quality.

A guy lacking in confidence would stammer his words out and wouldn’t be able to meet a woman’s eyes straight. A confident guy, on the other hand, won’t just be able to speak clearly and look at you straight the eye. He also won’t hesitate to ask for your name or maybe even ask you out right away if the attraction between you is that strong.

Secondly, a confident man won’t ever be threatened by the achievements of his partner. He will rejoice with her and not hate her for “upstaging” him. Younger men can rarely display this kind of confidence because they’re too hungry to prove something themselves. At this point in their lives, few will be able to swallow the fact that their partners had achieved something greater than they had ever accomplished in their lives.

DECISIVENESS

What attracts women to older men? Decisiveness, for one thing.

Decisiveness can be seen in a number of ways. A decisive man knows what he wants right away. A decisive man knows himself well. He understands his role in the world and it therefore comes easily to him to identify what he wants in his life.

Once he sees something he wants, a decisive man also won’t hesitate to go for it. He knows which things are and aren’t worth fighting for and if he considers you important in his life then he’ll let you know that. No woman will find that undesirable. A decisive man makes his woman feel safe and protected. He helps them feel secure about the future because he’s the type of man you can trust your future to…if there’s ever a need to.

HAPPY AND CONTENTED

Last but not the least, the ability to be happy and contented on their own is what attracts women to older men.

At their age, they already know and understand that happiness and contentment aren’t merely a state. They’re a choice. Older guys are happy and contented because they chose to be, and who wouldn’t want to have a guy like that in their lives?
