- With Pete Davidson now dating Kate Beckinsale, who’s 20 years older than he is, the burning question is why do younger men go for older women?

- The woman’s life experience and relaxed look at life were the two most pointed to reasons.
Thanks to Pete Davidson dating Kate Beckinsale, the buzz is all about why younger guys go for older women. We should point out, this is nothing new in Hollywood. There’s Jason Mamoa and Lisa Bonet,Hugh JackmanandDeborra-Lee Furness,Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, and in France, the President is married to a woman 24 years older than he is.
So what’s the attraction? “Today” went straight to men who are in relationships with older women. One guy noted their partnership was built on trust, respect, and love instead of sex. Another says it’s the clarity and substance. Hands down though, life experience and the relaxed way older women handle life were the two common answers.
Many of the men say it’s easier to be best friends.Fred, happily with an older woman sums it up this way, “The way mature women carry themselves shows they know who they are. It equates to stability. They've already figured out who they are. Maybe not all the time, but a lot more often than younger women.”
