I have now resolved that it is not my job to win other people over. Different aged partners might have same problem as above in 1. Seeing other couples work through it often helps others. We took our time getting there, and it took a lot of work. I am also, able to support myself so I don't need to date any man whether younger or older for his money.
For couples who are 15 yrs or less apart no one is going to be looking at you and saying or wondering why you two decided to be together. I wonder why did we even meet and share a lot of common things together. I've dated or tried to date women who are older, younger and, if you'll believe it, exactly the same age as I am. I have an established career and financial freedom he does not. The important thing is how you two feel about one another and the good times you share. My oldest daughter 17 years of age had already a chat with my new partner. 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.
Some problems that could occur: 1. That means I have to stand back at times I wish I could just step in. My family started pressuring me that i should forgive and let go for my future is guaranty with him he promised to do anything if i accept him back. He was a wonderful person who had a problem with alcohol. I'm too tired to deal with another woman's drama. These are the three typical things I get asked about when I tell people that Kevin, the man I am in love with, is 17 years older than me. If you are truly the love of his life why hasn't he committed himself to establishing a healthy relationship with you? We had worked together for three years and although I always found him attractive I had never considered him.
To get an idea of the possible challenges, you only have to read the experiences of women who have married old men. It is safe to say that I am a happy hypocrite. She doesn't have to wait years for that attention she usually is so craving and then have that same age man get tired of her. He keeps me interested and inspired, and I hope I do the same for him. I am 27 and my boyfriend is 50.
I don't want an older man, don't want his money, don't have daddy issues, no social needs. I find that I just don't click with older guys. There are exceptions but it is pretty true. The attraction is his hustle and drive. Not going to lie, I had my own expectations when I entered a relationship with an older guy. Life had been blissful so far though I did face a lot of challenges including a failed long distance relationship with a man I wanted to spend my entire life with.
But also spend time apart so that each of you can do the things the other doesn't like on your own. Especially, if you are in your twenties. I do not want to spend my 20s playing dating games, having casual sex or being in relationships with no goals. A man in his 40s is still strong and pretty young but at the same time not immature and superficial like younger men. Sometimes he would talk about how much he wanted a family of his own before a certain age. Things I would be considering no particular order : Do we have. I will do and go anywhere with him as long as hes happy.
I have been with my guy for 14 yrs. I was warned by my mom about marrying an older man. Love harder, stronger and with more passion and show the world that love can prevail. Initially when we met I completely ruled out the idea of dating him. He makes me feel comfortable in my stretch marks my wrinkled tummy. In fact, I don't think that I've seriously dated anyone who wasn't at least fifteen years older.
He keeps me calm because he has gone through more life experiences than I have. We were both 21 and had been together for five years. He saw past everything superficial and seemingly appreciated my soul. I just feel for him, we just flow, we just think the same, its just there. If the guy is more attractive to you at his age than your peers of your age, he probably has just plain good genetics.
