And think that by dating someone 10+ years younger they would regain some of their youth?

Well my parents 8 years apart and they have been happily married. My dad was sort of insecure when he was younger dating my mom from my assumptions of what they've told me but not a train wreck by any means. Just a lot of family issues that he had growing up. I don't think it would automatically deem a guy as being insecure but the consideration you need to take in is why. I think a lot of guys will date younger because they are naive and can't see past their bullshit as easily. So if you date older I think it would be in your best interest to keep your eyes peeled within the relationship.
I was 20 dating a 17 year old at one point. People gave me heat for that but I didn't do it out of sinecruity. I did it because I genuinely liked her and we got along perfectly.
I personally think I'll marry younger because i'm more attracted to younger women. I like the age difference because life experience is masculine and I like my partner to look up to me and value my life experience as a man and be someone that she can trust and go to. An older woman that might conflict with that dynamic. Plus it seems that older women that are single tend to be bitter as fuck and an increasingly are becoming cringe feminist lmfao.0

not insecure per se, but definitely immature.
when i was 19, i dated a man-child who was 14 years older than me; at that point, i was the only woman he'd dated who was "legal" (like, he dated 14 and 16 year-olds in his early 30s... probably because he had the mentality of a teenager himself).
i mean, sure, most women mature faster than men, but that's ridiculous.1
