Older women dating younger men celebs
Her older brother had invited a bunch of the people they worked with at the mountain over and I happened to be there. I think he was attracted to me because I asked him out, and I was able to banter with him off the bat. My friend (who was my age and in high school with me) worked at a ski resort near us. He's always been attracted to a person's personality. He actually thought I was older than I am, and both his wives were close to him in age. Woman A: The longest lasting of these relationships started when I was 18 and he was 40. However, we didn't start dating until I was 18 and he was 36. They split up around 2009 and I didn't hear from him for 18 months. Do you think your age was part of the attraction for him? Woman B: Twenty-seven and he recently turned 42 (we're still together). We discovered we had a lot of interests in common and became good friends. Most of the men I dated more casually at the time were in their 30s. It also made me feel special — this man seemed so much more worldly than the men my age, and the fact that he was interested in me seemed too good to be true. Woman D: Originally I think I was flattered that somebody who had experienced so much of life was interested in me.Whilst we’re rather nonchalant about it today, it wasn’t always so.

At 62, she’s never had a relationship with a man older than 41. I had just gotten out of a 10-year relationship with a man my age that I’d started dating in my mid-20s.
Those are particularly bad examples, as neither of them lasted.
But there are others: Tina Turner married Erwin Bach, 16 years her junior – they’re still married and have been for 27 years.
Then there are a few you might not know about – Gwyneth Paltrow is 5 years older than Chris Martin, Courteney Cox was 8 years older than David Arquette, Hugh Jackman is married to Debora-Lee Furness, 12 years his senior, Gina Davis is married to Reza Jarrahy, 15 years younger than she is. Disapproval is still evident – they’re labelled as ‘cougar flings’ (interesting that is the woman who receives the label – when a younger woman marries an older man, as in the most recent George Soros (82) and Tamiko Bolton (40) engagement, it is inferred that she is a ‘gold digger’). Another study, as early as 2003, suggests that 34 percent of women older than 40 were dating younger men.
A psychological study revealed that women who are 10 or more years older than their partners are more satisfied and committed to their relationships than women the same age or younger than their partners.
