It seems to be an established norm that girls always date older guys. If you hear about a man dating an older woman it seems much more absurd than the opposite. IE. M-19 F-25 vs M-25 F-19. I've no doubt that around the ages of 8-14 girls are much more mature both physically and mentally. Perhaps some evolutionary mechanism to ensure survival? But I digress..
I have read another post on here link and the majority of teenage girls would date at least 5 years older. Into the 20's the age gap increases considerably. At any rate.. if you're still reading.. I'm 20 and have found that I'm much more mature than girls my age with their high-schoolish impudent mentality (at the risk of sounding egocentric or supercilious).
So how does everyone else account for the girls disregard for a younger man? My vote is for genetically predispositioned survival instinct!

First of all, let me compliment you on your way with words, because your syntax is quite nice. haha
I've always preferred older men, but not necessarily because of maturity. Also, more and more, I've met younger men who are extremely mature who I would probably date.
As for how I actually explain my preferences - basically it boils down to chemistry, not so much age.
However, I do believe that women tend to mature faster in general and that can explain the trend, especially up until the early 20's. I think once people get into their late 20's, they might be less ageist.
In your specific case, I'd say it will get easier for you to find more compatible girls later on, but that's more due to it becoming easier to move in circles that are more appropriate for you.1
