Well, yeah. If you didn't get the attention of a father or father figure growing up then that desire could very well manifest in the men you find attractive being quite a bit older. You start looking for partnership and intimacy early on in your adulthood but you never really stop seeking out that father-like male influence even at a subconscious level, so both of these things can become entwined.
There's also the notion that women will want guys that are more mature, which is generally going to be older guys and men tend to want younger, relatively inexperienced women with a larger fertility time table. Both of these desires match up pretty well leading to older guy/younger woman couples being pretty common.1
