Happy couple

More and more women are seeking older men. There are many benefits of being with someone older. Many focus on the financial aspects since older men tend to be more established career wise but there is so much more to them. A woman is not automatically looking for money because she prefers someone older. Mature men have so much going for them. They are attractive, confident, mature and really know how to treat a lady. For these reasons, women are starting relationships with men 10+ years their senior and it is quickly becoming a preference. In fact, young women with older men is fairly common today. Although age gap dating can be wonderful it does present challenges. Fortunately, the challenges are nothing a little advice can’t help.

Age is Just a Number

First and foremost, age is just a number. If you like older men, go ahead and date one. You may be 25 years old but have the maturity of a 40 year old. What matters is the connection that two people have. When dating mature men set aside the age factor and pay attention to chemistry, conversation and how he makes you feel. Just because you prefer a partner of a particular age does not mean age should be the focus. It is simply a preference.

Dating is about much more than age and sexual attractiveness.

Discover Common Interests

Another great piece of advice is find things you have in common quickly. Dating mature men comes with a generation gap so establishing commonalities is the way to go. Find things that the two of you relate on and use those interests to connect. This can be anything from a love of fine cuisine to fitness and health. Not all interests are intertwined with generations so use those to your advantage. On the other hand if you both love music but each prefers artists from a different era use this as an opportunity to share and learn. Both may discover some new songs to add to their playlist.

Be Yourself

Younger women who prefer older men have a tendency to put on an act in an attempt to appear more mature. Do not do this. Just be yourself. In order to successfully date an older guy you have to be you. He is obviously attracted to you so why waste time pretending to be someone you’re not? Many are looking for that youthful spirit. In order to find a relationship based on open communication and care you have to stay true to yourself. Being young and fun is great.

Watch Out for Creeps

Like any type of dating there are the creeps to watch out for. When seeking an older guy pay close attention to his character and the way he acts around you.  Some men are quite strange and want to date a younger woman for the wrong reasons.  These are the ones to avoid. The last thing any woman needs is some guy that wants to date them just because of youth and attractiveness. A situation like this can get weird very quickly. Dating is about much more than age and sexual attractiveness.

The advice above is going to help you find the older man you have been looking for. As long as you do not make age the focus of the relationship, find common interests, stay true to yourself and stay clear of creeps you will find the guy for you. Dating older men can certainly work and may result in love. Age gap dating is not as challenging as people make it out to be. All that is required are two people that enjoy one another.

  • This is interesting. I have always thought that age is a big factor when it comes to whether or not a relationship is successful. I can’t imagine dating someone who is the same age as my father or mother–I feel like it would be difficult to relate to them or to have things in common.
