Historically the norm may have been older men dating younger women, but thanks to the likes of Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Moore and Mariah Carey, suddenly it seems a lot more fashionable for the girls to be dating someone a few years younger than them too.

1. He’s cuter than you are

Sure he’s annoying at times, but you can’t keep track of how many times he makes you go awww. And most of the time, it’s for these tiny, but oh-so-thoughtful things. Sounds like fun, right?

2. He will treat you like gold

I cannot stress this enough. If you happen to get the right younger guy (and I will talk about the wrong ones soon) he will treat you like gold.

While you might think this would cause a red flag, I can tell you that it actually means they have a lot of respect for older women and will treat you to little things like holding the door open and carrying your bags for you.
