Why Younger Women Want Older Men… It’s Not Just About Money


Your first answer for why younger women seek out older men is probably money and you’re not wrong—financial stability does have a lot to do with it. But there’s another big reason why so many younger women are looking for a sugar daddy.

A recent survey by a sugar daddy matchmaking web site found a direct correlation between the presence of a biological father growing up and a younger woman’s decision to take up the sugar baby lifestyle. From the 3,600 sugar babies polled, 62% of them grew up without a biological father in their life. Of those, 98% admit that they’re actively looking for an older man that will protect them, support them financially, and show them affection—all the characteristics of a positive father figure. More than half of these sugar babies admit that they would prefer a man who has at least 20 years on them.

It isn’t just absent fathers that influence the appeal of an older man—13% of the sugar babies surveyed said that they did have a biological father growing up but that he was inattentive because he struggled with a drug and/or alcohol addiction.

So while money may be important for sugar babies, having someone who can fill the void of an absent father can be just as much of a driving force.
