Well my aunt was dating someone's son once and the father was quite upset about it. And she said men her age want women in their 20s, so she doesn't have another option but to sleep with their sons. So there's that.
In reality though I think most people wouldn't want their kids to be with someone old enough to be their parent. That is 15 years or more difference. And I think most people inherently see something wrong with relationships between old and young people. And that's ok and normal. Seeing someone in their prime of reproductive health with someone who really shouldn't have kids doesn't make sense. Most people naturally find it gross, because there's no biological reason for them to be together.

women sometimes do this , it kind of depends on the girl guy was trying to date and exact age diff , I agree jealousy could be in play , or older women didn't understand why he found younger women more attractive. women tend to be more emotional and physical reasons maybe not as high on the list sometimes.
I think the only thing that is shammed is when they're not of age, because when a person is a teen compared to an adult i'm not talking like an 18 year old liking a 17 year old, as we grow older even if the age difference is up to 5 years, there so many things we go through in those 5 years that mentally some people aren't on the same level. There are the rare ones but still. If you're a 30 year old man liking a 20 year old, its not shammed its just a lot happens inbetwee, but not much.
It depends. If you're old enough to be her father than you deserve to have your @ss kicked. Mainly because really young girls do not know what they're doing, and can be manipulated by older people into very unhealthy situations. For example: 17 and 47... no bueno
Personal experience with unwanted advances from much older men, usually. Often the guys who do this - especially with minors - are kind of overbearing and don't heed her personal boundaries, leaving a bad feeling behind.
Jealousy, pure and simple. It's hypocritical, because women avoid honest, hardworking, good men while they are young, in favor of the players and bad boys. Then, when the good men get status, money, and general appeal in their 30s, those same women get pissed because those guys can date women ten years younger. You made your bed, ladies. Time to lie in it.
They just can't handle getting older. They're insecure and can't deal with it.
Jealousy. Age is one thing women can't change. That, and most women fear getting dumped for a younger woman by their husbands after they've had kids and gained weight.
