Dating men in their 30s
Women want to be settling down by their late 20s and 30s.For the over 40s cuddling and kissing takes the top spot, as reported in "Sexual Satisfaction and Relationship Happiness in Midlife and Older Couples in Five Countries." Further, the report noted that "Longer relationship duration predicted greater relationship happiness and sexual satisfaction for men.The answer is a bit complicated and it appears to differ with age.Men in their 20s and 30s want both freedom and sex.

They have a specific, thought-out reasoning as to why they're only romantically compatible with guys who are older… Throughout my entire love life — or whatever you want to call what has been 23 years of going through men, some for longer than others — I have never so much as lusted after any guy who is younger than I am. Without going too much into my dating career, the main factor in all of my relationships — significant or otherwise — has always been the man's age.
For me, and many other women like me, it all begins with a number.

And if you don't know who the Seavers are from “Growing Pains,” then you don't stand a chance.
I know this firsthand, as I’m 25 years old, and I’ve been dating an older guy nearly 15 years my senior for almost four years.
While you figure out the math, let me be clear that I’ve met several other women in their early- to mid-20s who also prefer to date from a much older pool for various reasons.
