60 year old dating younger women
Still, the findings do suggest “men’s lower age limit for a sexual partner may not be as low as we’ve thought, based on previous research,” Lehmiller said.But he added an “important caveat.” The study was done in Finland, and the findings might not extend to other cultures, including the United States.Antfolk agreed, noting that Finland has a high level of “gender equality,” which might have swayed the findings.As for bisexual and homosexual study participants, similar patterns showed up.They typically had sex with women who were close to their own age.Whether that reflects men’s true preferences — or simple reality — is not clear, according to Justin Lehmiller, a social psychologist who wasn’t involved in the study.“It might be more of a reflection of how the dating game works,” said Lehmiller.“They report an interest in both younger and older women.”And of course in the real world, Antfolk stressed, neither men nor women base their romantic choices on age alone.“We look for many different characteristics when choosing a partner, and age is just one of them,” he said.
But on the other hand, men were also attracted to women their own age.
All study participants gave the age range they would “consider” for a sexual partner.
Then they were asked about their actual partners in the past five years.
Study participants were asked about the age range of their sexual partners — but the “context” was left out, he said.
So it’s not clear how often older men were actually dating women their own age, or how often they’d been with the same woman for the past 20 years, he explained.
