Pros and cons of dating someone older than you

23 Apr

All kidding aside, there are some wonderful things about being married to a man who is more than a couple years older than you (let’s not forget that there is an assumption being made that along with age, a certain level of maturity has been reached!

) and while this post is written with a bit of laughter, there are a few things you should remember.

You’ve both gotten your wilder years out of the way, and you’ve both lived full lives with satisfying careers and plenty of travel (hopefully).

My follower asked me “I met a man who is 15 years older than me. On the other hand, if you’re a young guy who’s mature, going after an older woman would be ideal for you, mentally and emotionally. If you’re young and free-spirited, you don’t want a stick-in-the-mud rolling their eyes at the walrus teeth you made out of straws at dinner.

You’ve never dated anyone who’s 10-20-30 years your senior, but this guy is something special, and you want to give him a shot. It’s a scientific fact that women mature faster than men, so if you’re a mature young woman who’s going after an older guy, you may be on the same level.

If you aren’t particularly flush, dating someone older can mean a step up in the financial bracket.

Of course this can be a wonderful thing when it comes to quality of life…and you no longer have to fear your landlord or pick up the check.
