Is dating a younger guy all that it is cracked up to be?
At some point, I think we’ve all wondered what it would be like to date a younger guy. After all, when it comes to going out with a younger partner, usually it is the man who dates a younger woman. We’ve seen it a million times — an older man will date a younger woman who is half his age. Stereotypically, she is attractive and he is wealthy. He has probably been married before to a woman his own age and they have had children together. He is now divorced and his younger partner is also a symbol of his success. And sometimes, this new partner looks like a younger, prettier version of his older wife! Regardless of what you think about this arrangement, it happens all of the time. Well, in Reece Witherspoon’s new film, “Home Again” this gender bias is reversed as she dates a hot, young dude!
That’s right, Reece and director Hallie Meyers-Shyer wanted to explore the concept of a woman who is dating a man considerably younger than herself. And many may view this situation as exciting and appealing. Others, however, wonder about the long-term success of such an arrangement. When there is a noticeable age gap, what do these two people really have in common?
Chances are, they are in different points in their lives, have dissimilar worldviews, and come from separate generations. From simple things like music references, to more complicated issues like family values and attitudes towards religion may be completely unalike from each generation to the next.
Either way, exploring the relationship between an older woman and younger man is compelling. So come with us as we listen to Reece Witherspoon as she talks about dating a younger guy in her new movie!
