You don’t have to hit up a nightclub every weekend, but you definitely don’t want to spend too many weekends being the coupled up couch potatoes.Joking from time to time is cool, but don’t get too comfortable trying to blame certain issues on his age.According to a new survey by dating website Elite Singles, men aged between 20 and 29 are much more likely to date a woman who is significantly older than them, while men aged 30 and older, while still eager to enter into a relationship with someone younger, are starting to close the average age gap between themselves and their ideal prospective partners.'Young men nowadays probably recognize that older women are adept at diligently juggling so many responsibilities (career, children, housekeeping, fitness, finances, socializing), which makes them intriguing and attractive and a more secure option,' psychologist, Sam Owen told the Huffington Post.Elite Singles surveyed 450,000 of its online daters in order to find out what their ideal relationship age gap would be, with the results clearly indicating that - despite society's perceptions about men always needing to find a younger woman - the majority of young men actually want the exact opposite.

An older man might know what he wants for himself in the next span of years, but so do his family members.And if he likes a certain type of music or movie that is a bit “old” for you, don’t be too dramatic when he talks about his love for it (i.e. Don’t get too bent out of shape if a question is asked of you that you didn’t see coming (“When are you guys getting married??
