Young Japanese Women Prefer to Date Older Guys

8 01 2010

According to the latest Japanese survey, middle aged men in their 40s are enjoying great popularity amongst younger Japanese women, with some 40% of hot Japanese babes preferring older men whilst 20% of these only being interested in men at least 10 years older than them and 38.2% wanted older men up to 9 years their senior.  About a quarter of the women surveyed (26.5%)  did not have any preference regarding age.

When asked about actual dating experience, 48.4% of young women had dated older men, whilst 60.4% of men in their forties reported experience dating younger women.

Commentators  speculate several reasons such as  1) the “manly aura” of  older men as compared to the effete younger generations 2) the Japanese pay structure vastly favors older men and since women start becoming conscious of marriage after the age of 25 they start to become realistic about romance and having a family.
