The Upward Trend of Older Women Dating Younger Men – Today Show

It was an honor and joy to be back on the Today Show with Maria Shriver, where we talked about the upward trend of older women dating younger men. The segment featured three couples where the women were between six and 20 years older than their partners.

While each couple’s journey was different, all three couples are thriving in committed long-term relationships where the men made the first move.

Women in Hollywood With Younger Men 

Since Hollywood couples have been making the headlines for decades, now the boy or girl next door is finding love across the generations.

Celebrities are leading the way with Kris Jenner, 25 years older than Corey Gamble; Madonna at 63, whose boyfriend is a Millennial at 37 years younger; and Heidi Klum, who married Tom Kaulitz with a 16-year difference. 

I told Maria that women are dating like men now. Women are dating what men have done since the beginning of time, without batting an eyelash. Women are successful in careers both as executives and entrepreneurs, so they weren’t necessarily looking for someone with an equal bank statement balance.

I explained that age is no longer a barrier to love. I also noticed from my female coaching clients that they preferred to date younger guys given a choice. These women expressed they felt they’d like to meet someone who could keep up with them actively or didn’t want to take care of an older man.

On our site Dating in the Age of COVID-19, our ongoing survey shows that 83% of singles are looking for a meaningful relationship,, and during the lockdown, age and zip codes are tossed out the window. Everyone was dating virtually, and in a sense, in a long-distance relationship.

Since the segment aired, I’ve heard from so many couples who shared their loving age-gap difference stories, and I’m touched by all of them.

Do you think the age stigma has dissipated? How much younger or older in age are you willing to date?

Today Show – How to Create an Irresistible Online Dating Profile

On the Today Show, Kathie Lee and Hoda were joined by Cosmopolitan magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Kate White to talk about one of my favorite subjects, How to Create an Irresistible Dating Profile.

Among the terrific tips, Kate suggested using bullet points in your profile instead of a long, dragged out paragraph and to update your profile to keep it fresh and appearing high in a search.
