Benefits of dating an older man
When one of my friends noted that she has to constantly remind herself that she is nearly 10 years older than me and I don’t act my age, she gave me a piece of advice: I should consider dating someone older. My unicorn boyfriend is 36 years old, 12 years my senior.
Until then, the concept of dating an older man was not even up for debate. Let me tell you why he’s convinced me that dating an older man is the way to go.
I thought, “If he is old enough to have held me as a baby, then he is too old.”She laughed and encouraged me to give it a try. On our first date, this guy was a perfect gentleman.
Whether it’s Thalia with Tommy Mottola or Charo with Xavier Cugat, these Latina celebs all married much older men. Contrary to popular belief, not all young women desire a mature to help mend childhood wounds.
And, not all young women date older men because they want a sugar daddy. By established, I mean his career is solid, he has a 401K and he probably owns a home.
Not only does an older man have years more experience, but he will also listen to you and your needs. So most 20-something and even some 30-something-year-old-men live with their parents or share a rental with a roommate (or two or three).
That’s why they call instead of text, make dinner reservations, pull your chair out and open your car door. Young men may also have these fancy manners, but they usually got ‘em from their poppa.
may not want to have sex all the time, he may just teach you a thing or two.
The over 40 gents are some of the most lusted after men in Hollywood — Jay Z, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr., the list goes on.
Sure you may draw some strange looks when you hold hands, and don’t be surprised if he gets mistaken for your dad, but there are some benefits to dating a man aged like a top-shelf whisky.
An older man, however, has lived on his own for decades! Even when a man is in his thirties, he may still pick a fight at a dive bar and, yes, go to dive bars! Try dating an older man because it’s different and new.
Finding a decent human who isn’t strictly DTF can be challenging to say the least — especially now that dating apps are so prevalent.
