Poll: The benefits of having younger boyfriend

In Japan, in common with many other countries in the world, I suppose, women tend to prefer men a few years older than them. However, this survey from goo Ranking looked at what are the good things about having a younger boyfriend.


Over the 19th and 20th of April 2012 1,092 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 60.5% of the sample were female, 11.3% in their teens, 17.0% in their twenties, 28.4% in their thirties, 25.5% in their forties, 10.2% in their fifties, and 7.7% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.
