Girls seeking father figures in an older man normal?
Let's say a girl really likes older men. Not for their money, she has her own. She is mature for her age and feels like she relates to them better....
Also, I kind of feel like men that age (say 40s) flirt with younger women but don't think the women would actually be interested in them because of the age difference and kind of assume that the younger girl wouldn't want them. But if a man in his 40s did find out that a girl in her 20s is interested in him do you think he would actually go for her? Or would he be put off or weirded out by it, like "there's something off about this chick"

To me it depends on his role in your life.
Him having a father figure personality is a good trait to have. But will he be a father figure to you? Or to your kids (if you want kids)
I would say the roles gets tricky when you want him to play the father role.
He would be your boyfriend. Not your father.
He can't be both.
Also it would depend on way you're looking for. Some guys might me looking for an easy lay. Others not so much.
You should talk to you dad and ask why he wasn't the Dad you wanted then ask yourself if you want the fatherly figure or not

Not really anything. But I think the kind of girl that dates that much older guys who DOESN'T have daddy-issues is pretty rare.
Nothing's wrong with that at all. She likes older guys. No biggie.

Those psychological explanations are very vague generalizations. I'm exactly like you. I'm so much more attracted to older men, but it's not about the money or daddy issues. It's mostly because they're so much more mature and interesting. Don't take it as something abnormal just because a few researches conducted on god knows how many women brought those results. Daddy issues and/or wealth are not the one and only explanations. It can be just a preference.
Nothing wrong with actually. Some girls just do mature faster, and most guys her age are still not as secure yet. Perhaps, she seeks security in a relationship.
What's wrong is that she shouldn't be looking for a father figure, she should be looking for an eqaul
