Younger Attracted to Older and Vice Versa

I've noticed a trend for a while. It seems that some younger men (in their 20's and 30's) like the idea of dating an older woman in her 40's or older. However, some older men often want to date women in their 20's/30's. I know each person is unique, but maybe some reasons for both trends are common. For example, I suspect that many younger men might think older women are more experienced sexually. Many women gain self-confidence as they age, and that might be an attractive trait to younger men too. Also there was media hype for awhile about "cougars". Regarding older men/younger women- maybe a youthful companion helps a man feel younger? The beautiful appearance of a 30 yr old woman doesn't hurt either. I'm really just guessing on all this. I'm cautious about making blatant generalizations. What are your thoughts?

My thoughts are similar to yours. I wonder how many of those Fall/Spring relationships last. I've sometimes joked to my self that I wish I could fina woman with the mind of an accomplished 70-year-old, and the body and cute squishy face of a 32-year-old. Ain't gonna happen.

I suspect the older men/younger women thing has been around a very long time. I was married to a woman 12 years my junior. We were together for 14 years, then divorced. I don't think age played as a large part as social and education differences. I see no problem with younger men and older women.
