An Australian relationship coach, Jake Maddock, has advised single women to only date men who are ten years older than them.

The married coach said from his experience coaching thousands of people, when a woman dates a younger man, it rarely works out.

Jake, who claims to have cracked the code for long lasting relationships, said women should only date older men.

In an interview with FEMAIL, he said,

‘Men and women mature emotionally at different times. According to experts, men take about ten years longer to become emotionally mature than for a woman.

‘An older man is likely to be less commitment phobic and more decisive about where he wants to take the relationship. He will also have a more mature viewpoint when it comes to solving problems and relationship issues.’

‘He will have made his mistakes and is unlikely to repeat them. He won’t play silly games, he chooses you for better reasons and will appreciate you more.”

Speaking further, Maddock said the Hollywood dating and marriage scene is proof of his theory.

Giving examples of Hollywood couples, he said,

“George Clooney was clearly very careful about the women he chose to date. He was still a bachelor at age 52 when he met Amal Alamuddin in 2013. He is seventeen years her senior, which didn’t faze either of them,” Jake said.

“Jerry Seinfeld married Jessica Sklar in 1999, when he was 45 and she was 28. They are still together. Alec Baldwin began dating Hilaria Thomas in 2011, when he was 53 and she was 27. They are still together. Harrison Ford began dating Calista Flockhart in 2002, when he was 60 and she was 38. They are still together.”
