I'd like to hear opinions of women who are over 18 and has had some experience with older men.

And when I mean "old," I mean 10 years or older than you are. Thank you.

In my personal opinion, I get really disgusted seeing couples like that. However, I've meant many women who're married with 50 year old geezers and live happy lives. So please, help me gain a better understanding. What sort of qualities do these guys have that a regular douche-bag jackass broham (like myself) don't?

Women often have a hard time finding someone around their own age that they find are mature enough and well established. We don't really like dating people who's lives could change on a dime so we look for someone more settled. But that's my opinion. I'd prefer to find someone around my own age but the more I look the more I'm disappointed personally.

I'm male, and I would probably agree with avidkid10's post. It's a maturity issue. It's the same as why a lot of younger guys enjoy dating women that are older than them. As a male I ask myself... Do I want to date a woman or do I want to date a girl? Nine times out of ten I would pick a woman, simply because the maturity is there. Complex conversations and the relations are simply more adult. So it would only make sense that girls would go the same route, but hey everyone is in fact different so you never know.

In the past I have dated men 10+ years older than me. I guess for me I wanted someone who was well educated. The men that were my age that were in my life at the time very very immature and not well educated.

As I got older I asked myself, "What am I doing?" I decided to try dating people closer to my age and I did find some people who were very educated and mature. I think the problem is that most women have this notion that older men are smarter and will treat a woman better. This sin't always the case. Also I think older men are so desperate to have a younger woman that they will trip over themselves to please her. Some women like being catered to.

There's my two cents.

They are mature and they have they life planned out already.

I'm not sure. In the present, and future, I decide that I'll only date men around my age.

It's a personal preference. (... I myself prefer my toyboy. )
Some of the women do it because they like the idea of a man who feels ready to settle down right away and isn't more interested in career or social life because they're ahead in that already.
Some have "daddy issues" and feel that older men can take care of them in that sort of way.

Don't go taking it personally, OP.

Why do men like dating older women? Because they're more developed, mature, more experienced, don't have that teenage drama and aren't psycho and aren't a pain in the ass to be with. Now just flip that to a guy and you'll have almost the same reason. No big deal. Age shouldn't matter when it comes to being with someone.

Well in most cases I think it is the maturity factor....unless the guy's like 80 then it's all about the money xD

Us older and more mature men know how to appreciate a woman. Some (not all of course) of the younger guys don't seem to know how to treat a girl with the love and respect they deserve.
