In addition to staring death in the face, there are other theories that address why much older men date actual teenager.“Probably the most prominent would be evolutionary psychology, which posits that men are attracted to youth and the kind of beauty that is unconsciously linked to procreation,” Wright says.“While men can procreate throughout their lives, dating a younger woman (especially quite a bit younger) lengthens the ‘window’ for being able to have children.Which is what is happening with a friend from work.She's a very young 21, at Uni, likes to drink, party, mess around and have lots of relationships.
