Why do older men hit on younger women?

I do not get it why older men (20-30 years older than me) hit versus someone who is around my age. What exactly attracts older men to hit on younger women?

  • Because men are universally physically attractive to youth, health and fertility. doesn't matter if the guy is 20 or 50. Its a biological thing. Its just that most guys want to choose someone who is more than just a piece of attractive flesh, but also mentally, maturity and emotionally compatible.

  • Because they are facing their own mortality (aka mid-life crisis) and they want to feel young again. Granted, they still have another 20 or so years left. But they (nor does anyone else) do not know that for sure.

  • That's just wrong.. I have a hard time being okay with me dating someone that's like 18-19 which is around 8-9 years differential, let alone someone that's over 10 years or so, or even half their age. I do prefer someone that's +/-5 years differential, but to each their own and it's not really my business to begin with.

  • It's physical attraction and the idea they have nothing to lose. If/when you say no they haven't lost anything. Most of them have children if they ever wanted them. So why not?

  • Are you asking why they'd be interested in a woman your age, or why they try, given that they're interested?

  • I guess older men have more experience with women so they feel the most confident at approaching.

  • women their own age can tell they're not anywhere near as cool as they're pretending to be. they know they have better luck with young, naïve females.

  • Many reasons. They know women better and feel less intimidated by us. They also think we are much more stupid than we are.
