Why Single Men Love Growing Old
When my year-old son told me he was bringing his new girlfriend home to meet me, I chilled the wine and whacked a chicken in the oven. Clearly they were getting serious and I was so pleased and excited. Until he arrived home with a year-old woman. I opened the door to stare into a visage nearly as lined as my own. My own smile froze. I then noticed we were also wearing similar outfits. Five minutes into some rather awkward small talk in the living room, I realised that we were reading the same book and had just been to the same exhibition. I seemed to have much more in common with her than my son.
“My boyfriend is 29 years older than me”
The real rules about how old and young you can date. According to this rule, society should accept a 50 year old man dating a 32 year old woman. A quick poll of my friends says otherwise. This made me wonder, does the creepiness rule actually reflect what is socially acceptable when it comes to age differences in dating? In other words, does the creepiness rule actually reflect what society finds…creepy?

The age difference between Penn, 59, and actress Leila George, 27, is not as great as that of Quaid and Laura Savoie — 32 years, as opposed to Yes, the May-December dynamic is as old as time and is a well-worn topic of literature, film and music.
It brings up questions about sexual desirability and gender power dynamics. These critics dismiss these men as being emotionally immature or pathetically caught up in mid-life crises; their girlfriends, meanwhile, have daddy issues.

They have been dating since June. The announcement of any kind of relationship between a wealthy, powerful man and a much younger, beautiful woman is both surprising and yet, at the same time, the oldest news of all.
The old rule of determining a socially-acceptable age difference in partners Generally, I feel like years junior or senior is considered.
For women over 30, dating can be a minefield. There are fewer single people generally, and yes, there will be some men your age specifically seeking out younger women. We live in a society that worships at the altar of youth — particularly when it comes to women. Indeed, because women have primarily been valued for their beauty, a concept deeply rooted in ideas of youth, women are socially devalued as they get older.
These deeply gendered value systems normalise older men seeking out younger women, because if we value men for what they acquire, and treat women as objects, of course some men are going to view women as another symbol of their status, and want the most desirable model. Everyone has a learning curve, and just like you, most people want to be bowled over by someone amazing. You could be that person.
Younger men who have grown up around discourse around gender equality may indeed be impressed, rather than intimidated, by all you have to offer. Again, online dating has the beautiful option of filters, so you can chose only to interact with men who are open to relationships. To avoid those who are just looking for sex, set boundaries and stick to them.
But the most important barometer is your own happiness. Because while there will be bad dates and dull spells, dating is ultimately about optimism, about hope, about embracing possibilities.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man over 30 must be in want of a significantly younger woman. Just because we acknowledge this fact, though, does not mean we do so without a certain amount of derision and judgment. From the Instagram commenter who felt the need to remind Zach Braff that he is 44 after the actor dropped a cutesy emoji under a post from year-old girlfriend Florence Pugh to the collective eye-roll aimed at Leonardo DiCaprio every time the actor steps out with a new subyear-old girlfriend, the internet loves to hate an eyebrow-raising age gap.
The problem with this narrative, as comedian and writer Anya Volz pointed out in a Twitter thread last weekend, is that it tends to paint men at the northern ends of these age gaps as inherently predatory, rendering the younger women on the opposite sides helplessly preyed-upon victims of male exploitation instead of conscious, self-determined agents who are more than capable of pursuing older men as willfully and actively as older men pursue them.
This is not to say that such dynamics are never predatory and older men should feel free to relentlessly pursue younger women because all young women are actively seeking such attention. The first rule of not being the worst is to stop assuming that literally anything is ever true of all women or, for that matter, all people of any gender, race, age, sexuality, etc. It is to say, however, as Volz expressed in her thread, that while these conversations ostensibly intend to protect young women, they have a tendency to instead strip such women of their autonomy, relegating all women in relationships with older men to a state of presumed vulnerability.
