    so my family the other day said all men want girls that are younger than them so for example a 28 year old women can only marry a guy thats like 32 + or a 25 year old guy would want a girl thats like 21 or 22.
    They're traditional and religous so..
    I was kinda shocked and I can't believe it. Is this true?

    depends person to person really. I'd say typically though the guy is 1 or 2 years older. My dad is 6 years older than my mum btw. My grandad is actually 2 years younger than my grandmum though, so really it does depend

    It’s definitely not true. There are some relationships where the age gap is massive, and then there are some relationships where there’s no age gap at all. Every man is different. And anyways, age should not matter when it comes to love.

    First of all I’ll never marry.

    But I personally would date a girl ranged 18 to 40(m**f). It’s only because I’m 19 now though. When I’ll be over 40 I’d still be attracted to 18 to 40 age bracket.

    It's not definitely true. It's true to an extent. I feel that it is because females are more mature than males (at the same age). Obviously this is a massive stereotype and there are exceptions everywhere.

    Several zeroes richer on their bank account is also acceptable.

    I think it's mainly that women are generally more mature than men (at the same age) and like stability, both of which they're more likely to find in an older partner

    All depends on the man in question, what life was like for him growing up and how secure he turned out as a result.

    I mean don't you ever notice the pattern of how its always the socially awkward or butt-ugly or loser kids at school (and throughout life) who tend to turn out to be the most creepiest and most likely to want the best of everything. Same way its always the lower or working class people who desires to have the flashiest cars and always be dressed from head to toe in designer fashions, because they were poor when growing up and desired to live like the other half so naturally assumed that by flashing their wealth in peoples faces it will scream 'look at me, I'm rich just like you people' even though the genuine middle or upper class folk have never had the burning desire to show off. because they KNOW they are rich, therefore they don't need to prove themselves to anyone.

    Likewise if he always struggled to get himself a woman when growing up, chances are he will be the type who will only swipe right on all the solid 9s and 10s, basically the representation of all the popular girls in high school who rejected him. Therefore the usual demographic is - anything from 18-early 20s, thin, plastered in make up and looks like a 'popular girl'. The type of woman that all his mates will (in his head) 'envy' him for or assume that hes 'normal' because he managed to get a hot girl or even high-five him for it. And if shes not as hot, or hes TOO old to pull a stunner, he still needs something that will give him the 'wow factor' therefore if nothing else she has to be much younger than him so that his older peers will still (in his head) secretly envy him for having a younger chick in his bed... even if the younger girl is only with him for his money.

    sure people will also assume he goes for younger because her skin is firmer, less baggage or shes more fertile (even if older guy has no desire to have children) or he wants someone young enough to look after him, those are all true enough but a guy could still get all of that with a woman who is merely 10 years younger than him so why the need for her to be young enough to be his daughter. the one who want really young are either what i said above (desperate to prove themselves to the world) or just straight out creeps. those who were secure with themselves right from the beginning, always had no trouble attracting women are the types who are comfortable enough to date a woman within their own age bracket because these are the ones who are genuinely looking for love, not something fake.
