13 Men explain exactly why they prefer dating older women

It seems to be far more common, and socially acceptable, for women to have a thing for older men. On the other hand, men who prefer to date women older than them are often questioned over it. While it can often be a matter of circumstance, we all know someone who tends to be interested in a partner quite a bit older than them, whether they are aware of the trend or not.

But for those of us who don't have this particular preference, it can be interesting to get into the mindset of people that do. Whisper collected a number of testimonies from real men who prefer to date older women, and here are the reasons they gave.
