Why men prefer younger women? maybe the way of thinking? maybe you think they are more beautiful?
- I feel more comfortable with younger because I am not as mature as women of my age and older ones.
- Because they are more beautiful.
- I have dated older women.
- Is the same to me, while the age difference is not too much, is the same

I think the biggest reason men date younger women is the confidence factor. People who are older usually have more like experience, so we assume they're a high quality person. That makes it harder for men to be as confident around older women, and confidence is a huge factor in attracting a woman.
For example, in the business world, would you rather hire someone with 5 years work experience or 15 years work experience? Of course it is possible that the person with 5 years work experience is more skilled, but the odds are that the person with 15 years work experience will make a better employee.
Likewise, it is more likely that someone older has more like and relationship experience and will therefore be a better partner. Thus it is easier for guys to be more confident around younger women. I'm 29, have all my college debt paid off, have a nice truck that is paid off with a custom sound system, a great job that pays well over the average salary in the country, so it would be very easy for me to be confident around a 19 year old woman who's just starting college, getting into debt, drives a 15 year old sedan, and who hasn't dated anything but immature college guys.
Of course there's also the issue of kids and younger women being more fertile, but I don't think that plays anywhere near as much of a factor in today's culture as confidence does.

They may prefer them because they don't have as much experience so they feel safer and feel like they won't have to prove themselves or seem smart, or always be mature. I think they want someone with whom they can behave like a child and that girl would be okay with it because she basically might still be a child.
Or they are just trying to pretend like they're still in high school, only this time they have a girlfriend who goes to high school. xD
(this last one I got from a dude on here - love the comparison)
Or they feel that manipulating younger women is easier.
