Love knows no age and attraction is primarily emotional (like eHarmony or Tinder) and physical (like BeNaughty or Ashley Madison), not logical. It is thus normal to feel attracted to younger partners and if you like someone younger than yourself, I say go and get them.
The thing is, the age difference doesn’t matter unless you make it matter. Stereotyping men or women by age is as irrational as stereotyping them by hair color. So drop all your luggage about age and get to know who a person really is.
Now, since you are here, you are probably curious about the Hollywood world and famous older woman younger man relationships. This article will satisfy your curiosity for sure.
Here you will discover:

Brigitte is the first French lady married to French President Emmanuel Macron. They are 25 years apart speaking of age.

In the end, to have successful older woman younger man relationships, the key is to have self-confidence, independence, and integrity with a dose of femininity, playfulness, and spontaneity as a cougar, which is what the female celebs had to a lesser or higher degree.
If you are not attracted to older men and it is your first time dating someone younger, you will do it with flying colors if you have those qualities.
These characteristics will make any younger man attracted to you.
Remember that before you get the guy, you’ve gotta get a life and be independent. These female celebs didn’t wait for a prince on a white horse to save them and build a life for them. Don’t wait either, but take things into your own hands.
