2 Reasons Why You Should Be Looking for a Wealthy Mature Man to Date

Wealthy Mature ManA recent study polled over 2,000 adults to try and find out what the most appeal­ing qual­i­ties are in a prospec­tive part­ner, and once again, the results favor age gap rela­tion­ships. While the female respon­dents didn’t come right out and say they pre­ferred an older man, many of their top qual­i­ties are, more often than not, found in more mature men.

For instance, 75% of women want to be with a man who’s finan­cially respon­si­ble, the sec­ond most impor­tant qual­ity behind hav­ing a sense of humor. Fur­ther­more, 74% of women want some­one who’s intel­li­gent and 44% want to be with some­one with a good salary. One of the main rea­sons women are drawn to age gap rela­tion­ships is because older men are more likely to be finan­cially sta­ble, which pro­vides that sense of secu­rity and pro­tec­tion that so many women value.

The find­ings from the male respon­dents favored age gap rela­tion­ships, too. Eighty per­cent of them want a woman who is good look­ing, which explains why so many men are attracted to younger women. But 65% of the men also want a woman who’s intel­li­gent, and 55% pre­fer to be with some­one who’s finan­cially respon­si­ble. In other words, men don’t want to date some­one who can’t carry a con­ver­sa­tion and who’s only inter­ested in blow­ing their money. Most wealthy mature men have worked hard to be suc­cess­ful and prob­a­bly won’t want to waste time in age gap rela­tion­ships where they’re taken advan­tage of.

Whether you’re inter­ested in age gap rela­tion­ships or a more con­ven­tional dat­ing style, the most impor­tant thing is that you and your part­ner share com­mon val­ues. If he places a lot of impor­tance on life goals and fam­ily, then those should be qual­i­ties that you want, too. Money and good looks are cer­tainly con­tribut­ing fac­tors in age gap rela­tion­ships, but they’ll only take you so far; the key to a suc­cess­ful, long-term rela­tion­ship is being on the same page about what mat­ters most to you.

What do you think: What qual­i­ties do you look for in a man?

About Isabella

I was never patriotic, so when Independence Day came, the last thing on my mind was to go out and celebrate. I was bored and I was lonely, and though they weren’t my normal crowd, thesse girls were friends and family members who I grew up with. But Diana had her man, Marsha had hers, and my cousin Lisa had her own. I was the only one who was single and my taste was just too high; the kind of men they dated did not appeal to me. I wanted the executive, the entrepreneur. I was 22 and unhappy about my life. I yearned to be in a relationship; I felt I had so much to give a man, and yet I was single. My friends and I waited for cab and I was still second-guessing whether or not I really wanted to go out. While we were waiting, an older looking gentleman driving a blue pick-up truck drove up to us. As he slowed, he said, “Don’t move. I’m coming right back!” He drove off, leaving a trail of his cologne, as he sped away to drop off the construction workers sitting in the back of the truck. Literally moments later, he came back, stopped in front of us, asked us where we were going, and told us to get in. It turns out his name was Keith. After Keith dropped us off, I realized I didn’t want to stay and asked him to take me back to where he picked us up from. He turned, looked at me, and said, “You were the reason why I picked you all up. I wanted to get to know you. So, I’m happy you decided to leave with me.”
