Without a doubt, women have come a very long way when it comes to getting rid of the double standards of decades past. Although this doesn’t necessarily mean that society is completely accepting of equality nowadays, things are definitely changing. Just take a look at the relationships that tend to occur between older women and younger men nowadays.
When older men date younger women, people’s perspectives are a bit different. After all, this scenario has been around for a very long time. In fact, the older man might even get praises for having won over such a young woman.
This isn’t the case when the woman is older, though. In fact, a lot of people consider it shameful and indecent for older women to date somebody younger than them. It doesn’t even matter if both parties consist of consenting adults who enjoy each other’s company and find one another attractive.
Right now, there is a term for when older women date younger men: Granny dating. Granny dating basically refers to an intimate and fun relationship that doesn’t involve serious commitments – something that is alright for a lot of adults nowadays. However, the term ‘Granny’ in itself essentially refers to a woman who is ready to jump onto any unsuspecting prey in their midst before moving on to another. In other words, it makes the older woman look like a real predator in the dating scene.
Well, it is true that some older women are interested in nothing but one-night-stands, but this is how a lot of older men think, as well. Why is it that nobody has come up with a term for them, like ‘slapper dating’?
It doesn’t really matter who came up with the term, though. The point is that society seems to look at these relationships in a completely different way compared to the way they look at other relationships.
What they don’t seem to realize is that people all have different desires and motivations in terms of relationships, regardless of how old they might be.
For most Granny relationships, it is all about two people and nothing else. As with any other dating relationship out there, it involves attraction, compatibility, and the person’s willingness to build onto the relationship. Singling out the age of a woman an putting a label on her just shows how narrow-minded society still is despite being in such a technologically advanced world as today.
