Dating Terms – Dating someone a lot younger/older than yourself

Have you seen mature women – I hate the term older women; we’re not old, we’re mature 🙂 – dating a lot younger man? Or maybe you have seen older men dating younger women – young girls to be exact. Younger man or woman dating someone much older than themselves are usually after for financial support. You might say they’re just gold diggers. Well, they’re not always like that, though. Some of them have genuine feelings.

Anyway, do you know what to call younger men or women dating much older women or men? I bet you don’t. In this article, I’m going to tell you the slang terms to call such people.

Sugar Daddy


Meaning: a rich, older man who gives money, gifts, etc to a young woman in exchange for sex, friendship, or companionship.
