Researchpurposes saidYou'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.
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?
