Older women dating younger guys jokes
Young adult women typically have more of a need for connection.
In young adult relationships, these needs are often in conflict, as the woman wants more intimacy and the man is focused on building his career.
Older men and younger women share that same need for connection.
This is one of the cruel jokes of the dating world: younger men are focused on significance and younger women are focused on connection. At some point, an older man will realize he's squandered his youth on the pursuit of power and may have neglected his family in the process.
His more youthful female companion may be more sexually attractive to him (making him feel younger in the process) and she probably doesn't call him out on his issues like an older woman might.
Admit it, when you see an older man who's dating a much younger woman, you assume it's because he must be going through some sort of mid-life crisis.
