The digital age has added a new dynamic to the realm of casual dating.
In the past, in order to foster a relationship with someone you were interested in, you’d have to put forth a great deal of physical effort.
Or are the cultural similarities that occur between people of similar ages important enough to be deal-breakers?
Of course, if having children is in your plans and you’re a man, the age of your partner matters.
Whether you meet someone at the bar, get set up or connect on Tinder or Bumble, most relationships will start with text messages.
Things like dinner dates, movie dates — and dates in general — were a lot more relevant 20 or 30 years ago than they are today.
Nowadays, if we’re interested in someone, we can just shoot them a text and take it from there.
There are certainly ways for older women to conceive children, but most men who want families tend to try and date women who are younger than 40.
Aside from that scenario, however, is there any reason that a 30-year-old woman can find love with a 37-year old and not a 44-year-old? Knowing that there are men of that age who are in great shape, physically attractive, interesting and successful is there a reason to categorically exclude these men? And while most people aren’t as attractive as these, it is certainly possible to meet someone significantly older who is sexy and attractive. Women in their 50’s will often narrowly restrict their dating range because they have a fear of meeting and falling in love with an older man – and then having to deal with his health issues.
