Dating a two year young
There are signs that men are increasingly interested in women who earn as much or more than they do.
Since they can count on themselves, women don't need an older man for financial stability, and dating a younger one may be a way of establishing relationships where they have at least as much control as the man.
Women are now the primary breadwinners in 4 out of 10 households with children.
But hey, if your inbox is full of younger dudes, go for it -- you won't be the only one.
As CNN pointed out in February, Hollywood and the broader celebrity sphere is full of young women dating younger men, from actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, 31, to race car driver and model Danica Patrick, 30, to Eva Longoria, 38.
The data also make sense in light of women's financial realities.
In a recent story on the data, TIME quoted Harvard psychologist Justin Lehmiller speculating that "when the woman is older, it shifts the traditional heterosexual power dynamic toward greater equality," and equality makes for happier couples.Unfortunately for women interested in younger men, the data also showed that 42 percent of male users only consider younger women (established when they tell the site who they're looking for), limiting the pool of men who would contact an older woman in the first place.
