But it's not an exact science — there are plenty of immature older men that would put teenagers to shame.Woman D: I'm now married to a man who is five years older than me so I suppose patterns would say I'm attracted to men older than me.

If anyone ever questioned it she'd say "fuck you these are the coolest chicks I know." I guess you could say I'm an old soul, I still get that a lot. Don't worry, it's easy if you're happy.

Woman B: Twenty-seven and he recently turned 42 (we're still together). We discovered we had a lot of interests in common and became good friends. Most of the men I dated more casually at the time were in their 30s. It also made me feel special — this man seemed so much more worldly than the men my age, and the fact that he was interested in me seemed too good to be true. Woman D: Originally I think I was flattered that somebody who had experienced so much of life was interested in me.
Woman B: I rented a flat in the backyard of his then-girlfriend. But I knew he was probably 10 years older than me and that was a little bit of the attraction, because I thought that he would be older and more settled with none of the bullshit that you have in your 20s.
