There are wonderful women available at those ages, accomplished, funny, smart, etc.But you probably haven’t been looking for them for a variety of reasons.If that sounds too old, remember that in 10 years you will be in that age group and your honey will only be in her late 40s.My question is: How young is too young for a man in a new relationship? Think of it this way, what do you offer a woman who is that much younger than you? (Not how she acts but what she wants out of life.) Yours could be the romance of the century, there are always exceptions and I do know at least one match made in heaven where there is a 24 year difference.I have met a sweet and devoted young lady, and we share many values and interests together. That said, there are usually only two main reasons a woman wants to be with a man so much older than her: security and money.

Research on age difference in couples suggests that while the desired gap for men and women is around 13-14 years on average (10-15 years), as specified in their partner preferences on online dating sites, in reality long-term pairs only have 3-4 years disparity.
The research data may be surprising, but it makes sense.
