Hardly a week goes by without a middle-aged celebrity being photographed with a new and much younger girlfriend. Earlier this year, Brad Pitt 56 was said to be dating year-old model Nicole Poturalski. Disappointing, but not surprising. When Keanu Reeves was photographed with his girlfriend Alexandra Grant , who had grey hair and looked her age 47 , he was inundated with congratulations and back-claps, as though he deserved praise for dating a woman his age. The thing is: he is still nine years older than her.
Dad or Shag: The Scientific Reason You're Attracted To Older Men

Romantic attraction is a complicated thing that scientists still don't completely understand. But, through research and experimentation, they've come up with many ideas about what draws one person to another. Below, we have rounded up some of the most compelling scientific insights about the traits and behaviors that make men more appealing to women. The best part?
When it comes to dating, age is just one among many factors to consider as you seek your match. We bring all of our prior life experience to any relationship we enter, so how much does it matter that one person's history is years or decades longer than the other's? Here, two experts weigh in on the benefits of dating an older man, as well as the potential drawbacks. While an older man dating a younger woman tends to raise less eyebrows than a woman's romance with a younger man , the dynamic isn't exactly stigma-free—particularly when the age gap is significant. Three years later, search husbandnotdad on Instagram and you'll find a collection of smiling couples; on Twitter , the same hashtag's happy photos are interspersed with searingly critical comments, which arguably confirms Thornton's point.
An age gap can be good, it can be bad and it can be downright creepy. It seems to be rather popular. We tend to portray older men as more romantic, wiser and kinder.
