Pitfalls dating older younger
However, a relationship or a marriage with an older man is not as sweet as it may seem.
There are a lot of risks, difficulties, and pitfalls that women face when dating older men.
The other day, at a Fashion Week party, my friend Alan and I stood against a wall, scanning the room for hot people, as you do.
“It’s weird,” he said contemplatively, staring into a sea of models.
Last year, I realized that maybe I should start having stricter standards for who I’ll date.
After about a year of this nonsense, I learned that dating the grown and sexy is just not for me, for six good reasons: 1. I dated Steve, 41, and he was a fun guy, but half of what came out of his mouth seemed like it was from a outtake.
Finding those restrictions a bit picky, a friend and I devised a new strategy: We’d spend 2010 focusing on dating older guys.
It made sense: they have good jobs, they’re settled and own homes, and they’ve finally gotten to the point in their lives where they know how to treat a woman.
“Lately, in order to want to sleep with someone, I actually have to them as a person.” He said this as if it were a mind-blowing revelation.
I told him that, at 31, the realization was probably a bit overdue, but I knew what he meant: As one gets older, it becomes harder and harder to be attracted to someone simply because of the way they look.
A longer span of time before he’s reaching for the Viagra.
