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?

Hi @MALUSE. Thank you. I will add my thoughts in an edit. I considered sharing my own opinions in the original post, then I changed my mind. I might have received more discussion if I had done that.

@BloggerDi An edit usually doesn't attract new readers. Your original post should contain thoughts which make readers want to add theirs.

I think in some situations, these relationships can work.

I have noticed a huuuuge increase in young men dating older women recently. I don't care as long as it's consensual.

Me too. It seems that it's become more of trend in the past 10 years or so. Thanks a lot for your comment @tzwrites.
