Tips on dating a much older man
That take-charge attitude and the desire to take care of his woman is plenty appealing.
Younger guys tend to be jealous at the drop of a hat. But how nice is it to be with a man who knows that, from time to time, another man will admire his lady…and not freak out about it? He’s assured of what he has (including you) and isn’t threatened by another man.
If he’s ready for a long-term relationship, he’ll make it known. He’s not out to waste time; he wants to know within a few dates whether you have potential or not.
Now, I’m not saying every older man is ready to settle down again. But they’ll be more upfront about it if they’re older.
Speaking of communication, there’s a better chance that an older guy will be a better communicator than a younger one.
Again, if he’s been in at least one long-term relationship, the subject of communication more than likely came up, so hopefully, he’s learned how to express himself in constructive ways that will make him a good partner.
I know a lot of women who prefer dating an older man.
Remember when you were a teen and your mom said that girls were two years more mature than guys the same age?
He may even have grown children, which may be easier to deal with if you get serious and end up living together or married (you’re not the wicked stepmother to small children). But these are a few things to be aware of if you consider dating an older man. But you’ve both got to be able to compromise in order to make a relationship work. If it’s important to you to have an active social life, dating an older man may not be for you. You likely want a serious relationship too, but you know you can’t rush it. Speeding into becoming an established couple never works.
Let’s look at both so you can decide whether dating an older man is appealing to you or not.
You’ve dated your share of men your age…and even younger.
A mature man isn’t in the middle of an identity crisis.
He knows who he is and what he wants, and he isn’t shy about communicating that.
