Unfortunately women increasingly have difficulty looking into mirrors, especially as they approach middle age.  Familiar face in the mirror shows wrinkles, age spots and gray hairs as proof of many years of life.  No amount of makeup or hair-dye can hide the truth to the knowing eyes.  The old adage, "youth is beauty," is no pleasant reminder that most things (especially people, even more especially women) are considered most beautiful in young adulthood.  Just think about it, the majority of the cosmetic industry is focused on selling women products that promise to restore their looks of years past; the fountain of youth is now aisle 8 at Target stores everywhere.  

But not all eyes look upon older women with criticism and disinterest.  In fact, it is the age and life-experience of such women that draws younger men to them.  The pull is magnetic; to the young man, an older woman embodies knowledge and sophistication.  The desperate attempts of younger women to magnify their sex appeal do not compare with the ease and visible self-assurance of older women.

Older women are unburdened with societal and media-driven pressures that younger women can't escape.  There is no push to be thin, blonde and makeup-covered, all while maintaining as natural appearance as possible.  For older women, keeping up with such standards was a chore they may have tended to years ago, but haven't given thought to in years.  After all, youth is beauty, right?

It is this relaxed quality that makes older women so enticing; they are comfortable in their skins.  They have lived life for enough years to know that life is too short to be wasted on such trivial things as vanity and appearance.  This is the heart of the magnetic allure; a young man can sense the wisdom and appreciate the beauty that grows with age.  

After all, many of the qualities that make women beautiful don't disappear with age.  Smooth skin, fine bone structures and body language all withstand the tests of time.  But perhaps the most active element involved with a December/May romance is the imagination of the young man.  When his fantasies meet his admiration and intrigue, a powerful crush forms.
