Seriously, I've noticed this. Whenever there is an article or something about a man in his 50s dating a hot young 20 year old, some woman get really triggered by it. They call the guy names and say he's disgusting. Its like how dare he date someone that is half his age.
Guys dont seem to care as much, they are like more power to them.
Why is this, why are some people really bothered by it?

What I'm wondering is, why are some people ok with it?
I mean come on, it IS weird. Most people inherently understand that and have an aversion to relationships were one partners is literally twice the age of the other. It's not how it's meant. It has never been the norm.
I think people by implied fertility much more than by actual age. If you still look young when your 40, people overall would judge a lot less for being with someone who also looks young. Like if Ashton Kutcher who is almost 40 was dating someone in their 20s, most people probably wouldn't think much of it
But if you see people like this you wouldn't think "Oh what a nice couple" you'd think "How nice that she is taking her grandfather out for dinner "
When two people are together essentially to make babies it's weird to take someone in their prime and match them up with someone who is clearly years past it3

I find it sick that so many people here seem to be so anal about older guys being with younger girls. It's no different than an older girl being with a younger guy. My mom is 53 now and my dad was recently 89. When they got married he was well over twice her age. Their relationship was no different than any other persons. It was the same love. Age is nothing more than a mere number. But yet people are so quick to judge. If she is happy with him and he is happy with her then let it be. It's really none of your business1
