More people than ever think that a romantic relationship is ideal when it’s between an older man and a younger woman. Now we hear there is a specific age gap that is ‘perfect’ for happy couples, and that is when the man is four years and four months older than the woman. And there is one big reason that women prefer an older man…..

33% of women prefer an older man, while only one in 100 ‘cougars’ say they prefer a younger hunk.

The #1 reason ladies say they prefer older guys?  Financial stability! That was one of the biggest reasons women cited for preferring older dudes, since 55% of women said they couldn’t afford rent or mortgages on their own.  This perfect ‘age gap’ appears to have much to do with the ‘wage gap’ between men & women.
