It’s fascinating how some men are drawn to older women. Then there are some older women who are attracted to younger men. But dating an older woman can be exciting and there are reasons to date a mature woman. A May -December relationship, which means a relationship with a huge age gap, can work wonders some times.
We tell you 10 reasons why dating an older woman might not be a bad idea at all
An older woman knows her mind and heart, has seen enough man-woman relationships, and probably heartbreaks, to avoid spending time and energy on trivialities which a younger woman is more likely to indulge in. Experience is truly seductive. She knows herself well and understands the dynamics of couple relationships better.
2. More appreciative
She has gone through enough to appreciate the little things that matter in a relationship. This appreciation spills over to everything and adds sparkle to every dynamic of the relationship.
An older woman has established herself in her work and is financially independent, which makes her emotionally independent too. She can take decisions on her own and doesn’t need to cling to her man or look up to him, which a younger woman is likely to. It takes a lot of pressure off a young man’s mind – both financially and emotionally.
There are no power games or dealing with drama with an older woman. She is strong enough to deal with her insecurities and fears and won’t throw them back at you in order to escape reality. She will confront her demons and slay them without depending on a younger man and without being an energy vampire.
5. Great between the sheets
An older woman is sexually uninhibited and can give you a real wild time between the sheets. She has no qualms about her body and is comfortable with it and is more open to experimentation. She can actually teach a younger man loads about lovemaking and great sex.
6. Enjoys younger men
Older women are likely to have a ‘thing’ for younger men. They enjoy them more as the appreciation and attention they get from them is more than they are likely to get from men of their age. This flattery is likely to make them feel more sexy and will get translated into fuelling their interactions with more passion and excitement.
7. More accepting and forgiving
Because they have seen more ups and downs in life, older woman are likely to be more flexible when it comes to forgiveness and acceptance.

10. She’s sexier
A woman who knows what she wants, is straightforward in asking for it, is her authentic self in a relationship, has figured out a way to look herself well and groom herself – that’s an older woman for you and there’s nothing sexier than being yourself. Older women just know how to be sexier.
