Why are Younger Guys Attracted to Older Women?
If you never dated younger men, you may feel a little self-conscious or even confused when you notice that the younger guy is starting to pay a lot of attention to you.
Well, there are a lot of reasons why a younger guy might find you attractive.
First of all, older women usually don’t play mind games and are more direct with want they want.
Younger women on the other hand can be a little flaky and insecure with their feelings.
Another reason is that younger men might be bored with women their own age and want something different.
There are also guys who find older women more physically desirable and that might be another reason why they are hitting on you.
Many of those guys have never been with an older woman before and might be experimenting to see how it feels to date someone older.
So don’t worry about competing with younger girls because most of these guys find you attractive because of your age and maturity which younger women lack.

How to Tell If a Younger Guy Likes You?
1. He Initiates Contact with You
If a guy really likes you, he will often be the one who initiates the conversation.
If you are in the same room, he might come over and talk to you, or he will text or call you first.
He will even come up with excuses to talk to you, such as asking you questions that he doesn’t need an answer to.
If he is not initiating the contact at least some of the time, he is probably not into you.
Unless he is very shy…
2. He Offers to Help You
If a younger guy likes you, he will find opportunities to help you.
So, if he offers regular assistance without you even asking for his help, there’s a high chance that he is into you.
It can be anything from bringing you coffee at work to helping you move or even giving you a ride home after work.
3. He Adds You on Social Media
Younger guys are very active on social media, so if they are interested in you they may add you on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, or even TikTok.
If he really likes you, he may even do some light social media “stalking” to find more details about you like for example whether you are single or not.
4. He Gives Mixed Signals
If a younger guy ignores you constantly, this may seem like a sign that he is not interested.
However, some younger men may be insecure about their feelings, and they will ignore you at times to hide them.
If he alternates between showing interest and acting cold or aloof, this might be an indication that he is trying to hide his feelings.
If he acts totally neutral – meaning he doesn’t seem to have feelings at all – he is probably not interested.

5. He Compliments You on Your Appearance
When a guy is interested in you, he will often compliment you, especially on your appearance.
Men are visual creatures, and a woman’s looks are the first thing they notice, even though it’s not the only factor that matters.
Complimenting you on your appearance is one of the most obvious signs that a younger guy is attracted to you.
The one exception might be if the guy is already your close friend, and he’s just saying it to be nice.
6. His Body Language
The guy’s body language is a very important factor in determining whether he’s into you.
If he maintains eye contact for a long period of time and his body is turned toward you, these are the signs that he is interested in you.
When someone is attracted to another person, their pupils dilate, though this sign is easy to miss unless you sit very close to the guy.
If he is interested, he might also come up with excuses to touch you, such as brushing “accidentally” against your arm or touching your hand.
7. He Wants to Be Alone with You
If you have agreed to meet a younger man who seems to be interested in you, he would find excuses to be alone with you, even if that’s in a public place.
He would not want your friends or children lurking around you two.
When you are alone he might playfully try to initiate physical contact by hugging you, sitting really close, or touching your arms or hair.
8. He Asks Lots of Questions
If a guy is really interested in you, he will want to know more about you.
Pay attention to what type of questions he is asking.
Is he asking you work or hobby-related questions or is he asking you more intimate questions about your personal life?
9. He Repeats Your Phrases to Impress You
If you want to know whether a person is interested in you or not, listen to their talking style.
If they like you, there is a high chance that they would try to use your words in their sentences.
While everyone has a unique way of talking, people tend to copy the speech patterns of the people they like.
10. He Acts Differently Around You
Watch the way he acts in front of you as opposed to how he acts around his friends or other girls.
If a younger guy is really interested, he might take on a completely different persona around you than he would around his guy friends.
If he is more of a shy type, he will act more nervous around you and if he is more aggressive, he might try to act more macho.
This is a common “mating” behavior that often manifests itself in less experienced guys.
11. Eye Contact
If you are still unsure about his feelings, see how he makes eye contact with you.
If he is genuinely interested, he will make a lot of eye contact while talking to you.
You may also notice that he stares at your body when you are not looking.
This further indicates that he likes you more than a friend.
12. If a Guy Likes You, It Should Eventually Become Obvious
These tips are simply meant to be a guide to help decode men’s behavior.
If you want to find out if a guy really likes you, spend as much time with him as possible, watch the way he acts, and the answer should become clear.
If he is really interested in you, it will not take much time for him to confess his feelings especially if you start dropping hints that you like him as well.
What to Do When a Younger Guy Likes You?
If you are attracted to a younger guy and he seems to like you back, don’t be afraid to ask him out.
To avoid any rejections don’t make it sound like a date and instead ask him for a coffee or drinks.
You can say something like “I need a coffee, do you want to come along?” or “It was a stressful week and I really need a beer! Do you wanna join me for a happy hour?“.
It will be much easier to figure out the guy’s intention when you spend more time with him in person.
