I got this comment many times with my last relationship and felt even more confident hearing it.This is probably the most challenging thing to overcome when dating an older guy. Although you can’t change a man (or even a woman for that matter), the key is to bend for one another so both of your needs are fulfilled.
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.There’s always a reason, but the best thing is not to push. The important thing is how you two feel about one another and the good times you share.I had a normal childhood, but I have been living in the “adult world” since I was a kid. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way.The only thing probably missing in my life is a partner, a published book and an owned property… To elaborate even further, I’m an only child, and growing up, I never had many close friends. I was teased and picked on a lot from the kids at school. I guess that’s where I began the attraction for the older man type, and it used to freak my mother out.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.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.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.George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.
