There is a popular belief that women should date men who are older than them - the perfect age gap according to this popular belief being 1 to 3 years (the men should be older). However, as years are going by and new scientific research is conducted, we tend to learn that some of the old beliefs are actually dated and the modern ones defy them. One of those belief is the belief that women should only date men who are older than them. This belief comes from the fact that women have a certain degree of maturity over men and that if women date younger guys, that would mean that the guys are not at the same maturity level as the women, hence having an unhappy relationship. However, this new study is breaking that myth. Researchers questioned 200 women: some of them had an older partner, some of them had a younger partner - and they found out that the ideal age gap is 10 years (for the man to be younger!). Women who were involved with men who were significantly younger than them felt happier and more fulfilled in the relationship. There was not enough data to understand the underlying cause for this feeling, however, scientists do feel that the women in these relationships are feeling more dominant and there is more room for equality. On the other hand, men love the idea of being with an older and more experienced woman and satisfying her is satisfaction for them at the very least. So in the end, everyone's satisfied with this age gap.   Sources: www.today.com www.oprahmag.com www.cosmopolitan.com
