I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.
He’s confident and can teach you a thing or two with his advice. This is great for me, since I am a whirlwind during the week and it balances me out.
He may be older, but he’s learned a lesson or two about making money, saving money and balancing his checkbook. He’s been through multiple ups and downs in relationships, and his feelings are in check. With endless kisses, hugs and soft lit candles, he goes the distance to make sure you are happy and satisfied.
I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:- They’re not ambitious enough, or they don't have a go-getter attitude.- They’re not financially stable.- They still want to date around.- They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.- They don’t have their sh*t together.
I’m not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn’t been fulfilling for me.
And don’t call him an “old man,” even if you’re joking; it will only make matters worse!
Personally and professionally, he has one up on you and may think only he has a right to call the shots in the relationship.According to the rule, for example, a 30-year-old should be with a partner who is at least 22, while a 50-year-old’s dating partner must be at least 32 to not attract (presumed) social sanction. Does it match our scientific understanding of age-related preferences for dating? People reported distinct age preferences for marriage; a serious relationship; falling in love; casual sex; and sexual fantasies. Based on the figures Buunk and colleagues (2000) provided (and thus the numbers are only informed approximations), I replotted their data superimposing the max and min age ranges defined by the half-your-age-plus-7 rule.Now we can see how well the rule corresponds with people’s reported acceptable ages.It’s nice once in a while to let the man take the lead, but it shouldn’t be a power struggle.You both have something equally to give one another.When you come across an older man and learn he’s single, have you ever found yourself saying to your friends, “There’s a reason he’s alone and still single”? This comment might make him and even you feel insecure.
