I know, I know: Why care that two consenting adults are canoodling when a demagogue is about to take the White House?
But what might the real benefits of dating someone younger be?
Turns out, experts say compatibility between two people who just happen to have an age gap isn’t as unusual as we may think.

(REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni) Many men and women are seemingly rejecting those cougar and sugar-daddy stereotypes, as some experts are seeing that a substantial portion of middle-age and older singles are willing to choose partners who are younger than themselves.
