A controversial relationship expert has revealed that women should be dating men 10 years their senior if they want to go the distance.
Jake Maddock, a self-described ‘tough love dating coach’, believes he has solved the riddle to a successful relationship.
The Australian guru claims that when a woman dates a younger man, it rarely works – instead they should seek someone between five to 10 years older.
He explains that there are biological reasons why women should date a senior man, and not the other way around.
Jake told FEMAIL: “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.”
The relationship expert also claims that dating an older man will build up his “masculine energy”, making him more attractive.
He added: “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.”

Jake gained most of his knowledge from working as a dating guru in Hollywood.
“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,” he 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.”
The popular dating coach, who is now married, previously revealed how learning to navigate a relationship has been one of his greatest accomplishments.
He said: “There was a good ten-year period in my life that was pure hell because I didn't understand relationships at all.
“So, I decided to learn about and become a master at them. After years of studying under mentors and reading books and putting information into practice, I achieved a 10/10 relationship.”
The biggest mistakes people make in relationships are not communicating effectively, not being intimate enough, and disrespecting each other, explains Jake.
The controversial coach has shared dating tips on his social media, where he says it is never a woman’s job to “ask a guy out”.
“The guy should plan the date, come up with the idea, he should execute the date and pay for the date. Your job is to sit back and have fun," he said in one video.
The former soldier warns women to beware of red flags in regards to commitment, adding a man will let you know if they are serious for something long-term.
“If I guy says let's go with the flow it says he doesn't know how to date effectively,' he said – adding that it can be a cop out and show he just wants to 'keep sleeping with you'.
“If a guy says I eventually want something with you but he isn't making any progress, keeping you on sidelines then you are a plan B.”
Jake says that working in ‘blokey’ industries has given him an insight into how men show their emotions.
