Manipulation

The question was
"Will an older woman be manipulative and controlling if she dates a much younger man?"

Only if she's likely to be manipulative and controlling with any partner and only if he wants to be controlled. A controlling, manipulative person will do it to anyone. Not just a younger guy. She will find a man who is malleable and easy to push around, or she'll move on to someone else.

Controlling people need to have a person in their lives whom they can control. I don't think it's a choice. I believe it is a compulsion.
