The Weekend Reading List

Weekend Reading List 198

Here’s an interesting question for you: would you date a younger man? I definitely feel that girls are raised to believe they’re naturally more mature than boys their age – whether that’s justified or not. So I’ve always had a built-in bias around younger men, and only date guys who are my age or a couple of years older. Which seems a tad silly, when you think about it, because men date younger women all the time.

This week Refinery29 explored the ongoing taboo of older women dating younger men, and it’s a really interesting read. Find the link below – along with more of the week’s top lifestyle links – and see if it changes your perspective…

  • I would never say never to dating a younger man. However, looking at past dating patterns shows that all the men I’ve dated are older than me bar one. As I get older I find dating is less about box ticking exercise, and more about chemistry between two individuals. Just my two cents worth. – theflairsophy | http://www.theflairsophy.com

      Yes – agreed! It’s all about the chemistry.

  • Well Ella I’m your gay male fashionblogger follower so your question doesn’t really apply. But if I look at all my girl friends few of them go out with younger guys , mainly older. I think women are predisposed to men who might be able to proctect them . Of course the cave-woman brain .
    I always enjoy your lists . Thanks visit me sometime
