Wemen dating younger men
“Dating somebody younger than myself, there’s an acceptance of ambitious women — it’s more normalized.” They met at the University of Hawaii in November 2002, when she was a law student and he was a sophomore undergraduate.
They were introduced by Sutherland’s sister, who was one of Wipp’s law school classmates, at a beachside barbecue.
"Age wasn't what I was thinking about, but to the rest of the world, it was a very big deal."It's 2019.
Women are running for president in spades, taking back our power in Hollywood, and fully owning our sexuality.
Such May-December couplings are no longer seen as relationship outliers — or indicative of deep-seated mommy issues.
There's very little outrage about their age differences.“Younger guys tend to be more active, have less baggage,” says Soletti, an event planner who regularly hosts dating mixers.“You’re less likely to date a younger guy who’s been divorced, has children or has sexual performance issues.” In 2011, she met Juan Cabrera, now 34, at one of her mixers and soon fell in love. “Millennial men are career-focused and want to travel with successful women and conquer the world together,” says Soletti, who notes she’s seen an uptick in established women signing up specifically to meet younger bucks at her speed-dating events.In the past we might have seen countless tweets and think pieces questioning what these men could see in an older woman.Now, though, the narrative has shifted: People are valuing these relationships for what they really are—a hot, successful woman at the top of her game getting her life.
