Most women marry men who are one to three years older than them, and they believe that is the best thing for them. It turns out that this is not always true. According to a dating expert and doctor, women who date men significantly younger than they tend to be happier and more satisfied.
The study involved 200 women in couples
To find out more about heterosexual relationships, Dr. Lehmiller observed 200 women. These women dated men younger than them, older than them, and finally, some were about the same age as their companions.
An age difference of around 10 years is most appropriate
Through this study, it was found that women who were in a relationship with a man who was about 10 years younger were the happiest. They were also more involved in their relationship than women who dated older men, or men the same age.
Women feel more dominant in these kinds of relationships
The researcher highlighted a few possible reasons why women feel more comfortable when they are in a relationship with younger men. According to him, women have the upper hand in this type of relationship and there is more room for equality.
Men are happy too
Research also added that loving and satisfying an older woman can make a man happy, too. Other experts commented that these couples had better compatibility, greater maturity, and may even be better parents.
