Facts about dating older men
When I would go away on trips and had my guy take care of my apartment, I always came home to flowers on the table, chocolate or homemade gifts. Besides feeling good together in public, you look great together, too.
Even though there have been those people who have judged, you’ll be surprised that there are more people on your side than you think.
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.
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.
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.
It’s nice once in a while to let the man take the lead, but it shouldn’t be a power struggle.

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.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.
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.
