British women seek younger men

A British survey suggests that an increasing number of women over the age of 45 are seeking relationships with younger men.

The survey of 1,200 adults conducted by London-based Parship dating service found that the number of older women seeking younger men rose by 20 percent over the course of one year to nearly one in 10, The Daily Mail reported Monday. Of that number, 3 percent said they are seeking men more than 10 years their junior.

The survey found that approximately two-thirds of women seeking younger men live in rural areas and many of them use Internet dating sites to find companionship.

For their part, younger men aren't entirely adverse to being pursued by older women, the survey found. Five percent of men between 25 and 35 years of age said they are seeking relationships with older women and 47 percent of male respondents said age has little to do with love.
