Why is it when a younger woman dates an older guy

that everybody thinks that it is about money rather than recognizing the relationship is a union of two people who like each other, share common interests, and common goals and like one another. When a younger guy dates a woman who is in her 40's or even 50's they don't usually call them golddiggers!

I think it depends on how you define older... If a woman dates a guy 10 or 15 years older than herself, then I think it's ok, but if you like Anna Nicole marry a guy in his 80s, then I think it's all about the money.

exactly my thoughts. i can't see how a woman could find anything attractive or even have the same goals as a man in his 80's. she was definitely in it for money.

i used to think that way but not anymore,,,,, when i was young it was frustrating to see young girls go with older guys,,,now im 30 and i understand why,,and i also would like to have a girlfriend 5 or 10 years younger than me!

i personnaly feel that women are much more matured than men so if a mature women marries a guy,he becomes more wiser.

Ya its common that many people thing that when an younger girl dates with an older guy and if that guy is more wealthier than the girl then its common misconception that its just for money and nothing else, But i definitely feel so, maybe sometimes its true, I saw a marriage where the man was 88 Years old and the girl was just 19 and the girl was a beauty paegant and the man was President of a county, Now just tell me whats the meaning of these type of marriages
