Dating a older guy
Stay in for a couple nights by making dinner and watching a movie and doing one extreme outing during the week, even if it’s just for a bit.
Late one night last spring, a man I hadn’t seen in six months stood in my doorway and asked me softly, “Why did we quit doing this? Our parents and siblings are around the same age, and we remember plenty of the same music videos and short-lived breakfast cereals of the 1990s.
I never babysat the kids in my neighborhood once; I couldn’t relate to kids at all. I would crush on older guys when I was 13, but I really didn’t start actually dating an older guy until I was 26; he was 40.
That relationship was fun and short-lived, but what I've learned since then has taken me a long way when dating older men.
It’s nice once in a while to let the man take the lead, but it shouldn’t be a power struggle.
I still get the common response from my friends: “He’s too old for you! ” I’ve also had a few people in my life suggest that I do it because I am a "gold digger."So, the broad answer is this: To clarify, I’m not dating older men because I am a “gold digger.” It’s more important for me to pull my own weight and be financially stable.He loves spending time with you, but may want to call it an early night instead of going to the next big party.Try to find the balance between going out and staying in.Or, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who are 25 years apart in age?In their defense, I hardly grew up dating or crushing on men close to my age group.George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.But, it’s not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.At the end of the day, I need to do what’s best for me.Here are a list of pros and cons to consider if you decide to date older: Whether it’s in his career, knowledge acquired overtime, relationships or even in the bedroom, this man knows what he’s doing and knows what he wants.So by the time AOL’s megasuccessful instant-chat system flowered into a mainstream mode of communication in the late ’90s, my boyfriend was a teenager and already had an established impulse for how to get in touch with his peers: a phone call.Dialing someone’s home phone line, briefly exchanging words with one of their parents or siblings, and then catching up with a friend or asking a girl out on a date — these were normal, natural things people his age did, and continued to do, uninterrupted, even after the arrival of the internet.
