That is important, but mostly I am going to tell you my personal experiences about dating beautiful, fun young ladies in a variety of countries around the world. By “younger women” I am talking about women over eighteen years of age.And, no, I do not want any of the excuses about how biologically or emotionally mature younger girls can be, cultural traditions, or the legal issues surrounding the age of consent.
Eighteen is a solid, reasonable line in the sand and following it will save you a lot of hassle and possibly jail time.
But from eighteen up the definition of “younger women” varies widely.

Fifteen years ago, I was running an ad agency, and we were asked to pitch for an online dating site.
Because he had a reluctance to grow up, he wanted to stay young in as many ways as possible.
The next time we ran into each other was when I went to interview for a job in the ski resort's lift department, which he happened to be in charge of. I think he can't really find a woman to keep up with him, even in his own age group. The man I dated was essentially an 18-year-old himself when it came to maturity.
Woman A: The longest lasting of these relationships started when I was 18 and he was 40. However, we didn't start dating until I was 18 and he was 36. They split up around 2009 and I didn't hear from him for 18 months. Do you think your age was part of the attraction for him?
Woman B: Twenty-seven and he recently turned 42 (we're still together). We discovered we had a lot of interests in common and became good friends. Most of the men I dated more casually at the time were in their 30s. It also made me feel special — this man seemed so much more worldly than the men my age, and the fact that he was interested in me seemed too good to be true. Woman D: Originally I think I was flattered that somebody who had experienced so much of life was interested in me.
I have one criterion first and foremost: He has to be a nice person.
As a result, my so-called casual relationships go on a lot longer than most people’s so-called committed ones.
Woman B: I rented a flat in the backyard of his then-girlfriend. But I knew he was probably 10 years older than me and that was a little bit of the attraction, because I thought that he would be older and more settled with none of the bullshit that you have in your 20s.
