Melbourne is a city which is an eclectic, diverse mix of people—home to people originally from all corners of the world who have chosen to make the city their (new) home. People from different backgrounds and nationalities, with different views on life, dating and relationships.
As you’d expect in a city like this, the dating scene is very active and Melbourne girls dating older men is a growing trend—in fact, following the same sort of growth pattern as girls looking for older men in other parts of the world.
In Australia, dating amongst different age groups is perhaps more common than in some other countries, with possibly one of the reasons being that many Australian women tend to be keen to secure an educational qualification and pursue a career before settling down into a steady relationship. In Melbourne, this is no different than in other key Australian cities, especially given the wide range of different ethnic groups most of whom place a great weight on education.
Still, Melbourne girls when dating, as with most women, are looking for certain key attributes in their men. When such girls are looking for older men, some of the main factors that Melbourne girls might consider include:
- an older man is probably more mature than his contemporaries and understands better how to take care of his younger girlfriend—both emotionally and physically
- the older man is, more than likely, well established in his career and has the financial resources to take care of his younger Melbourne girlfriend—maybe she is still studying or is just starting out on her career and needs some moral or financial support
- young girls looking for and dating older men is no longer such an unusual occurrence in Australia and there are no social or other taboos about it as there may have been even 10-15 years ago
- Melbourne girls can be very discerning about dating the right man and an older man, with his experience and maturity, which is sometimes lacking in younger men, might be the ideal sort of person for a younger girl to date
In any event, the number of girls looking for older men to date, maybe eventually marry, in Melbourne is on the increase in line with worldwide trends and it is likely that this social phenomenon will continue to grow over time.
