To me that's a double standard. If the 30 something year old guy seems genuine, then his age can be overlooked. It's wrong to talk negative about people, without a good reason.
Girls have gotten to the point where they don't know what they want, them same 18 year old girls that don't want nothing to do with men in their 30's are also the ones that want nothing to do with dating a guy who is the same age as them, which is 18. That makes it seem like they are souless creatures.

Normally in a relationship the man has more power. I'm not saying this is try for all couples but it is for quite a few.
Men are usually stronger, bigger, and tend to be more dominant. If you add older onto that list it's giving the man even MORE power! And that means he can almost completely control them. That makes most people uncomfortable and wonder what if he is controlling her?
And plus if you're old enough to be someones parent you should probably not be dating them...
Hope I helped :)2

Nobody would care about either all that much, even though they might not 'get' the attraction themselves, if it weren't for the fact that older men choosing younger women is a persistent undercurrent in all dating beyond age 25 or so, and women, who are massive beneficiaries of this when young (even if they aren't dating older men, which most aren't, since some women are, there is a surplus of young men competing for those left), are angered and bothered by it when older and try to guilt both parties for participating in it.
I think it also bothers men and women sometimes because it highlights the fact that we aren't attracted to the same things in one another, and what the other sex finds attractive seems 'fake' to us. Men really do value both looks, and some of the personality traits more common in the young more than women do, and women really do value success, achievement and experience more than men do. So women feel like men just want bodies, and men feel like women just want money and a resume. Neither of which is true, but it can feel that way.3
