Should men pursue Russian women 10, 20, or even 30 years their junior? It's a question that inspires lively debate. Some men adamantly oppose huge age gaps, arguing that young women want to date someone their own age and only feign interest in older men to acquire money or gifts. Other men view age as nothing but a number and believe they have plenty in common with young Russian women.
Despite what some might think, it is possible for a young woman to be genuinely interested in an older man (though not as common as older men might hope). Reasons vary, but many Russian women are attracted to the stability and maturity older men bring to a relationship, not to mention the fact that older men are more willing to settle down. As for differing goals and experiences dooming May-December relationships, yes, these issues can be a problem. However, communication, compromise, patience, and perseverance go a long way in overcoming age gap challenges.
Should older men stay away from young Russian women? It depends. It depends on your motives for pursuing a younger woman (and her motives for dating an older man) as well as your ability to deal with the challenges that come with a significant age gap. That being said, many older men have enjoyed long, healthy relationships with younger women so keep an open mind and follow your heart wherever it might take you.
