“It was love at first sight,” Angal says of meeting Siegner, a buxom blonde who was a successful account executive at a graphic design company at the time.

“With some women I dated, they wanted to play games, but Jennifer always communicated that she wanted something real,” Angal says.

“I always knew where I stood with her.” Soon after they met, he cleaned up his act and left the entertainment industry.

“When you’re an ambitious woman, it’s very difficult — you either have to subsume what you wanna do for somebody else, or live with the struggle to fight your partner on top of business survival, and it’s a very unhealthy relationship,” says Nicole Wipp, a 45-year-old attorney and entrepreneur, who found a perfect match in her husband, Marcus Sutherland, a 33-year-old paramedic.

“Dating somebody younger than myself, there’s an acceptance of ambitious women — it’s more normalized.” They met at the University of Hawaii in November 2002, when she was a law student and he was a sophomore undergraduate.

When it came to finding love in New York, Amber Soletti, a 42-year-old who lives in the West Village, had no luck dating older guys or men her own age.

While they were “well-established and articulate,” she wasn’t physically attracted to them and found they had too many issues.

“Older men tend to become cruel over time, and [Marcus] was so refreshing,” Wipp, who lives in Detroit, tells The Post.

“[Younger men] don’t have the weight of the world [on their shoulders] yet.” But initially, Wipp held off on dating Sutherland because she was wary of the numbers on his driver’s license. I really had a mental struggle dating someone younger than me,” she says.

“I love that she loves me so much, and that I mean a lot to her,” says Sutherland.

“I can tell because she always makes me feel wanted.” Alan Angal, 36, was attracted to his older fiancée, Jennifer Siegner, 45, for her stability.
