It’s about the mistaken assumption that younger women will be more malleable.” In fact, young women in their early and mid-20s are quite malleable, something a woman that age might deny, but ask that same woman in her 30s to look back at her younger self and it’s likely she’d concede the point.

That seems to be a sound directive, given that according to a recent survey commissioned by Nickelodeon UK, “men and women agree men remain ‘immature’ well into their late 30s and early 40s.” Both genders also agree that women mature into proper adults at the age of 32.

Not coincidentally, that’s the age I was when I divorced my much older husband.

Christopher Ryan of Psychology Today argues – in direct response to Schwyzer – that there’s an “innate biological desire men hold for women in their most fertile years,” and that such a desire is perfectly natural.

The reason younger women dating older men in their twenties and early thirties is that they aren't always into someone at their own age.

A common rule of thumb when it comes to dating is that it’s OK to be interested in someone who is half your age, plus seven years.

However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.

It’s quite common to see older men and younger women dating in this country and all over the world.
