While they will create careers, they also want to eventually create a family.
On the other hand, young adult men are more focused on the need for significance.
That must have been my dream that night because the morning after the party, a phone call woke me up and it was him asking what I was doing that Sunday. When two people love each other, there are no barriers that can stop the feeling that connects them.
Love is free and no amount of money can buy you love, it knows of no race, no color, no religion and no age, so when it knocks on your door, why repress it based on the fact that you have been in this planet longer than your beloved?
There are times when both parties know the relationship won't last as they don't want to make the commitment but still they want to enjoy the experience.
This happens at all stages of a person's life and not just in relationships where the woman is the older one.
And so, on my way home, I thought in some of the greatest love stories where age was not an issue.
For example, Khadijah, the first wife of Prophet Muhammad.
Forward a few hours later, and I'm dancing with a guy who not only could dance but had such a beautiful smile, he made me stay longer. I could deal with three to eight years younger but 10 plus was a big age gap for my conservative, borderline militant ideas about love.
I didn't think anything of it, except that he had something about him I really liked. I'm an open-minded person living in an open society so was quite surprised by my own thinking, but there you go.
When it comes down to it, a younger woman satisfies one of the most basic human needs: connection.
