Morgan man dating younger women
On social media, the whole thing was described as ‘grim’ by one user, another said ‘the power imbalance’ of Hollywood and Monteys-Fullam’s relationship was ‘seriously gross’ and somebody else wrote ‘OMG this is peak dating one of your dad’s friends from the cycling club’.You may dislike Hollywood because he followed the Bake Off money to Channel 4 as opposed to ‘doing the right thing’ along with his original co-stars but he hasn’t actually done anything wrong here, not legally anyway.“You have turned me from a girl to a woman’ she wrote, before adding ‘and to a house woman’ which she then punctuated with a laughing emoji.The pair are reported to have begun dating last year after he and his wife of 20 years parted ways.Professor Madeleine Fugere is the author of The Social Psychology of Attraction and Romantic Relationships.
As a teaching psychologist, Fuegere noted that when she spoke to her students about this issue 'they felt that life stage rather than age might be important; so if women are at a younger age (for example, college students) comfort with a ten year age difference might be reduced because an 18 year old and a 28 year old might at different life stages, whereas the difference between a 40 year old and a 50 year old might not cause so much discomfort because those individuals are likely at more similar life stages'.
The research found that the youngest age of prospective female partner that a man would consider remains the same – a woman in her 20s – no matter how old a man gets. This, said one of the study’s lead authors, is because ‘natural selection has probably shaped men’s sexual strategies to include a particular interest in highly fertile, young women’.
However, it’s worth pointing out that this study actually confounds the idea that older men are only interested in younger women.
Fugere also told The Debrief that there is scientific evidence which suggests that ‘dad or shag’, whereby younger women find older man inexplicably attractive, is both a psychological and evolutionary phenomenon and not just a cultural cliché.
‘The research in this area shows that not only are younger women attracted to older men, but older men are attracted to younger women, a convenient situation for heterosexual couples’ she said.
