Dating 40 year old man
People reported distinct age preferences for marriage; a serious relationship; falling in love; casual sex; and sexual fantasies. Based on the figures Buunk and colleagues (2000) provided (and thus the numbers are only informed approximations), I replotted their data superimposing the max and min age ranges defined by the half-your-age-plus-7 rule.
Now we can see how well the rule corresponds with people’s reported acceptable ages.
You can see that men are basically operating by the rule for minimum age preferences for marital relationships (blue bars) and serious dating relationships (yellow bars).
Those age preferences consistently hover around the values denoted by the rule (the black line).
Do you think that the feminist movement disrupted our ability to express our feminine side?
Research for a story im making- 23 year old girl and 40 year old man meet at work then they start dating she enjoys his experience he enjoys her energy but her family doesnt like it so im asking is that too big for an age gap?
In our interview, I asked Lisa this question directly and she gave me a simple answer.
What is the acceptable minimum age for your own (and others’) dating partners?
According to Lisa, single men over 60 want women who are in touch with their feminine side. Lisa mentions that this is often the case, but, not for the reasons that many of us assume.
Men are not always looking for a younger body to cuddle up next to.
More important is that fact that younger women are more willing to show their feminine side to win a man’s heart.
Of course, they don’t have our experience, or our battle scars for that matter, but, this is beside the point. Or, you may decide that she is right, but, that finding a partner is just not worth the trouble.Now, as we reach our 50s and 60s, the situation is somewhat more complicated.
