Why do men date women half their age? For example , a 62 year old man dating a 28 year old or a 50 year old dating a 25 year old.

Well one of them might be using the other.
But when I put myself in that position, when I'm in my 60's a 20 year old boyfriend would be awesome... But when I'm in my 20s I would probably only date someone in their sixties if- wait, no I wouldn't date someone in their sixties unless I was super in love or something. But when I'm in my 20s the only 60 year old person I'd know well enough to be in love with is my mom.
So yeah, probably if the younger one was using the older one.

Because they can. There is no other reason.

A lot of older men like younger women and many younger women like older men.

The old guy feels younger when he dates a much younger woman. He fears losing his ability to attract women so if he dates someone much younger, it boosts his self-esteem. On the other hand, if an elderly woman dates a man half her age, the guy does it because of favors or money he can get from her. He could also be insecured and feels safer with a motherly figure.

Gota say people I agree somewhat but there is cases where it happens and exists and nothing evil or naughty is being done by either person. I'm 27 and started dating guy who is 39. I have noticed my share of "the looks" from people but it just doesn't bother me. If the younger person is mature for their age, while older is still mature but does live life, it will happen and quite possibly work too. Some of the younger ladies are tired of the crud that guys their age do and enjoy the reality that everything doesn't revolve around a ditsy flaky guy who is just messing around. Guess I believe there are way more important things going on to get bent out of shape about an age difference. May seem like a crazy concept, but try not to judge. It's impossible to know the specifics of anyones relationship, even those with an age difference:)

i understand why the old guy would want to date the younger woman... but i have no idea why the younger woman would want to date the older man, unless :love / or there in it for money/ or the old dude been around longer than the younger guy and already knows what she likes??? um...

The young woman makes the old guy feel young.

The younger partner makes his or her partner feel young again. If the older partner gets old and sick meaning that he or she will die, the younger partner can take care of him or her before he or she dies.

The older guys all think they're entitled to hot young women, women with NO stretch marks from having a baby, women WITHOUT arthritis, women who are still able to make babies, who haven't gone thru menopause, women who DON'T have to cover their well-earned grey hairs, women who don't scream in pain if a position hurts, women who don't get "dry" after going thru menopause. And yes-these old farts ARE looking for a caretaker for when they become useless & helpless. And any woman who wants to date a wrinkly old man who needs VIagra, no matter how much $$$ he has, makes me ill. No amount of $$$ is worth doing all of the things a man at an advanced age needs done to/for him. I'm almost 55-married to a man 4 yrs younger than me-the idea of dating an 80 yr old man makes my skin crawl! At the same time, a man 20-30 yrs younger than his wife WILL begin to eyeball(and more) women closer to his own age. I think we all need to stay closer to our own age when it comes to marriage, instead of being old fools like poor Paul McCartney.

im 20 and i am madly in love with my 50 year old boyfriend. i have always had my father in my life. i have a great family. i guess i just realized i don't want a guy my age because that generation of men that are in there 20's aren't men and never will be like the men that were raised 40 years ago. something went wrong with parenting because these days young men our so dysfunctional. i love my man because he has been around the block. he knows a lot more about things. and he has his priorities straight. i think a lot of older women judge because they are jealous. and I'm sure if i was a older women i would feel the same way, but every women was young once you already got the experience of youth. but sometimes i can't way to be a older women because they have also been around the block and they have a lot of knowledge. anyways i think people in general focus way to much on other peoples business. who cares. focus on living your life.

Some young gurls feel much comfortable dating men dat is much older than them..becos they ve observed, experiment and comfirm dat that things doest work out with the young men of our generation, thy ve got nothing more to offer than heartbreak so dey avoid been subjected to dat.. I belive age shld nt be given to much consideration whn it involes true love.
