dating and connected - 30 year old men dating 20 year old women

A lot of women feel undervalued once they get older since the media values youth.

For example, it’s difficult to find an older woman as a romantic lead in major movies.

Before 30, they’re looking for slightly older men; once they hit 30, they are interested in someone slightly younger.
