There must be a scientific explanation as to why..

    I'm attracted to older muscular men. Like i can't quite put my finger on it. I must be crazy.
    I can be attracted to a man up until his late 40's. AM I CRAZY?! My friends think of me as a bit strange because of it haha

    You're insecure in some way and find security in an older more secure male( financially and mentally)
    the muscle attraction is just a physical symbol of strength and security.

    I was the same at his age. If fact, my swim coach was killer dark, hairy and huge bulge in his speedo!

    My late lover, when I met him in 1978, was 41. I was 27. And I wasn't looking for an older guy, but I looked at him and thought he was adorable. We were together until the 90s, when he died. And he didn't have muscles. I had the muscles. It's not always about looks. And sometimes it's not about daddy issues (bad relationship with the father growing up). Sometimes it's the maturity, not someone's insecurity, that determines who they'll like.

    And no, Klick, you're not crazy. Why would you even think that? Plenty of straight older men attract younger women. Why should it be any different in gay culture?

    Nothing crazy about liking more seasoned men. They are hot.

    I really like pizza but I'm not sure if there's a scientific explanation for that. It's just a preference.

    You are who you are, and your are attracted to whatever. It is not going to change (except maybe as you yourself grow much older). Accept it. If you are lucky, you will find compatible guys that are also attracted to you. Asking why you are attracted to certain types of men is like asking why you are not turned on by female genitalia (assuming you are not). Be thankful you are not in that infinitesimally small fraction of men turned on by 12 year olds - that could be dangerous, and would make your life a very unhappy one.

    Of course there is. You associate Pizza with good things, through both taste and memory. You've evolved to crave the good stuff in pizza, the fats the sugars, the salts....that's why you don't see rocks eating pizza, but there is probably an association component as well . TV commercials, pizza parties when you were young, family members telling you should be excited for pizza, friends reinforcing that excitement.

    What he said.

    Though i'd add that everyone who ever existed is insecure in some way, even buddhist monks who spend a good portion of their day chanting away their insecurities are still insecure about being insecure.
    It's probably something to think about though if you're making a serious commitment to someone, whether or not you are more into their "type" than the actual person if you are say deciding to buy a house or move to a new country.

    But just running with it and finding yourself an older man beats paying big bucks to a therapist who's just going to string you along for years just so she can afford that second vacation home.

    I'm still confused, but perhaps it really is just a preference.

    I've always prefered older men. Never had any daddy issues. When I came out to my family, my dad was the one who handled it the best, he didn't question or criticise me, he didn't get angry or upset, he just accepted it. Even when I was at school, it was an all boys school, i was never attracted to students my own age, I only fancied the male teachers because they were fully developed men, not spotty faced mouthy hormonal teenagers. And the fact that older men are more emotionally mature was attractive to me as well. Maybe because I was the youngest in my family I just prefered having older men to look up to and found it difficult to relate to guys my own age. Of course, now I'm in my 30s and I won't say no to a hot 25 year old. icon_wink.gif
