The result of a messed up relationship with one's father, or having an absent father. Results in younger women chasing older men and even seeking mistreatment in some cases.
I was dating a 24 year old when I was 38 but I didn't try to dress young. I was just a major alcoholic and she was the daughter of an alcoholic and had major daddy issues.

Once I sobered up she lost interest and I got creeped the fuck out thinking about the psychology of it all.

Father complex in psychology is a complex—a group of unconscious associations, or strong unconscious impulses—which specifically pertains to the image or archetype of the father. These impulses may be either positive (admiring and seeking out older father figures) or negative (distrusting or fearful).
Sigmund Freud, and psychoanalysts after him, saw the father complex, and in particular ambivalent feelings for the father on the part of the male child, as an aspect of the Oedipus complex.1 By contrast, Carl Jung took the view that both males and females could have a father complex, which in turn might be either positive or negative.2

Whenever a female has a fucked up relationship with her father, or absence of a father figure during her childhood, it tends to spill into any adult relationship they embark on, usually to the chagrin of any poor male in their life.
