Dating someone younger than you
Can you have a relationship with someone significantly younger than yourself? I know from firsthand experience: I married a woman much younger than myself - about fifteen years - and it has been one of the most delightful experiences of my life.
Going out and establishing a relationship with someone younger is not for everyone, of course, but I would argue that it actually makes a lot of sense.
I took a chance on a guy 5 years younger once, we'll be married ten years in May.
The only person it has ever bothered was me, but only when we were in our 20's. I am currently dating someone 7/8 years younger than me.
Another example is a recent Ask Men survey  that found that 52% of women said that a man could be older than me but not significantly so contrasted with only 26% who said he can be younger than me but not significantly so .
Preferences for certain age characteristics of partners are reported across cultures: men prefer mates who are younger and women prefer mates older than themselves...
It's easy for a 6 foot 4 dude to be physically dominant/present. There was one time I met a girl and we hit it off, tells me she was a year younger than me.Actually out of the two of us, I am the submissive one and he is the more dominant.I've noticed that a lot of people seem to have a problem with women dating younger men, while older men/younger women pairings are seen as perfectly acceptable.In my experience, it's more or less the same as dating anyone else, except they cringe a little bit when they are confronted with the fact that you're their little brother's age or something like that. Yeah I think it would be a mistake to make any correlation assumptions about anyone's age and their tastes re: tending to the submissive or to the dominant.
I don't have a problem with it, and I'm sure plenty of women can look past it as well, but that's been my experience. In a weird way I find younger men can actually come off as MORE dominant because it's (technically, maybe?
It's extremely disheartening, since a lot of us have been pretty encouraging to each other about finding a partner who cares about us, only to be insulted when that partner happens to be younger. I wanted to find someone who makes me happy, and he does that :)It was this bit: '' I have submissive tendencies so women a couple years older than me really draw me in'' that made me think the OP was thinking older women = dominant.
