Im dating someone older
Now, I’m not saying these are conscious reasons why dating a man quite a bit older—there have been several moments when I’ve thought that going out with someone closer to my age would be much simpler.
I even tried it when my boyfriend and I took a short break, and I found it was painstakingly difficult and more complicated than my experience dating an older guy. The texting games (How long should I wait to text him back? It’s exhausting), the fear of commitment that plagues most twentysomethings, and the simple fact that most guys my age aren’t as emotionally mature as I am.
something I'm sure you all heard as freshman during “Hell Week”), the next logical step is to break down what goes into dating them. A challenge is enticing, but don't take it too far, lest you become an angry remonstrance.
Because those cologne-wearing, Dolce-upgraded, French-press-drinking, 30-something hunks are a whole different animal. He likely believes he's seen everything, or at least more than you because he's older, so prove him wrong. He'll be impressed and allured by your precocious disposition.4. You can't get totally obliterated Saturday night and ruin the whole next day because — guess what? Don't talk about the age difference — but if he brings it up, play it coy.
Maybe just one shot of whiskey instead of seven of vodka. We know what we want out of life, and we're probably not going to change it.
Don't try and get us to do acid again just because you want to see if we can recreate the time we went to Bonnaroo 10 years ago.4. "Older" doesn't necessarily mean we're going to stop watching cartoons or laughing at fart jokes. Yeah, we might also have emotional baggage, but the more time we've had to date around, the more we know what we like and (hopefully) how to avoid making the same mistakes we made previously.8.
Without those weightier responsibilities, Millennial boys (or, for the most part, the ones I've encountered) are living this suspended fratboy mentality.
Thus, we ladies have looked to older men to fulfill those more grown-up needs.
They have a specific, thought-out reasoning as to why they're only romantically compatible with guys who are older… Throughout my entire love life — or whatever you want to call what has been 23 years of going through men, some for longer than others — I have never so much as lusted after any guy who is younger than I am. Without going too much into my dating career, the main factor in all of my relationships — significant or otherwise — has always been the man's age. You missed our wild days and we're settled down now. We've learned a lot from our previous relationships.
