A relationship between two people where there is clearly an imbalance between looks, age or some other characteristic (but excluding wealth) that places the relationship in an immediate and stark power imbalance. This differs from sugar daddy / sugar mummy / toy boy relationships where wealth difference is the defining differential, and the relationship is base around a symbiotic exchange.

Related to Zeus (king of the Greek gods) who started an illicit relationship with Ganymede (a low born mere mortal) and elevated him to the position of Demi-God in Greek mythology when he could have had literally any other God, Goddess, Demi-God or human on earth including royalty.
Why is that young good looking successful girl going out with a divorced, broke, unemployed overweight guy with no prospects? He doesn’t even have a particularly nice personality.

I’m not sure - maybe she has low self confidence or perhaps she’s just addicted to Zeus-Ganymede relationships and all that power and security of knowing he’ll never cheat.
