Are you dating an older man or thinking about dipping your toes into that more mature water? Dating an older man is really not that big a deal anymore. Since we’re living in a more accepting world, we’ve actually come to realize that in many cases age is really just a number. So if you are or plan to date someone older than you here are useful tips to consider.
There is a reason this man was attracted to you. So don’t try to be someone you’re not – he wants you. Oftentimes in “younger women – older men relationships” the women think that they need to act more mature and they try to take on a different persona… don’t!
Take Things Slow
Just because your not dating a younger guy doesn’t mean the relationship has to move warp speed. Take your time and get to know the person before you rush into things such as moving in together, marriage or even kids.
Accept His Baggage
Most older men have baggage and you can either learn to work around it, or let in hinder your relationship. Whether it’s an ex-wife or a few kids, in order to sustain peace and harmony you must learn to accept these things. And the same goes for him.
Don’t Be Childish
Yes you’re younger than he is and you may not be as mature as your other half, but remember you’re in a mature relationship now so always keep that in mind. Just don’t be childish.
Dating an older man can have some pretty great benefits. Dating an older man will at least give you a new perspective on men and relationships. You may find that you’re different with an older man versus a younger one. Maybe you’re the one who needs control in a relationship with a younger guy, but you find that you really like being taken care of with an older man.
