“It was love at first sight,” Angal says of meeting Siegner, a buxom blonde who was a successful account executive at a graphic design company at the time.
And unlike his previous flings, Siegner wanted a serious relationship and was straightforward about her desires.
“When you’re an ambitious woman, it’s very difficult — you either have to subsume what you wanna do for somebody else, or live with the struggle to fight your partner on top of business survival, and it’s a very unhealthy relationship,” says Nicole Wipp, a 45-year-old attorney and entrepreneur, who found a perfect match in her husband, Marcus Sutherland, a 33-year-old paramedic.
“Dating somebody younger than myself, there’s an acceptance of ambitious women — it’s more normalized.” They met at the University of Hawaii in November 2002, when she was a law student and he was a sophomore undergraduate.

Actress Gabrielle Union, 44, and her husband, Chicago Bulls player Dwyane Wade, 35, are often lauded as a power couple. “Older successful men are used to being in control of a woman, and that doesn’t sit well with modern women,” says Susan Winter, co-author of the book “Older Women, Younger Men: New Options for Love and Romance.” “Younger men have grown up with working women and have worked for female bosses, so they’re more likely to treat women equally.” Some in these relationships agree.“I love that she loves me so much, and that I mean a lot to her,” says Sutherland.“I can tell because she always makes me feel wanted.” Alan Angal, 36, was attracted to his older fiancée, Jennifer Siegner, 45, for her stability.When it came to finding love in New York, Amber Soletti, a 42-year-old who lives in the West Village, had no luck dating older guys or men her own age.While they were “well-established and articulate,” she wasn’t physically attracted to them and found they had too many issues.So, six years ago, she started dating studs in their 20s and 30s — and she hasn’t looked back.“Younger guys tend to be more active, have less baggage,” says Soletti, an event planner who regularly hosts dating mixers.He now works as a personal trainer, and the couple lives in Portland, Ore.They plan on getting married on her family’s farm in August.“She’s just a unique woman, and there’s nobody like her,” Angal says.Siegner says they bring out the best in each other.
