Celebrities dating older men
While fairly normal throughout most of history, relationship and attraction age gaps are a controversial topic these days (sometimes ruled out as bad, being a victim of the mythical “Half Your Age Plus Seven Rule“).In some cases, society is fairly accepting, like when hot and established older celebrities like John Stamos or Harrison Ford date women ten to twenty years younger (or even more).She said, “one reason why this may have endured is because men are generally more attracted to younger women and would like a rule that makes them feel it is acceptable to date younger.” So basically men are to blame.
Relationship expert Susan Winter said, “I find it amusing that there’s an equation for the ‘optimal’ age gap in love.So, it’s clear that society has mixed views on age gap relationships, especially when the woman is much younger.Usually, at some point in any debate or discussion on the matter, someone throws out the classic nugget of wisdom, “well, the girl obviously has ‘daddy issues.'” It sounds logical right?A woman who likes an older man must have a bad relationship with her father, even maybe having been abandoned by him.But, let’s see what science has to say on the matter of these so-called “daddy issues.” A new study suggests women who date much older men have no “daddy issues,” and have the same type of attachment that women in similar-age relationships have.
Ever heard of the rule that men should date women who are half their age plus seven?
