My theory is that the two are linked and that the age difference facilitates a dom/sub dynamic.
Woman B: I think I've always been attracted to people older than me. There is a particular immaturity connected to the hookup culture which I just have no time for. I've found that most guys my age have trouble dealing with strong-willed, smart-mouthed girls, even though we are supposed to live in an age of feminism and all.
However, after the relationship with the significantly older man ended I vowed to only date close to my age again.
I think that there is definitely some truth to the "age is just a number" mentality, but having the experience I did, I don't buy it completely.
Older men are often more chivalrous and ‘old school’ about dating.
They love romance and things like kisses, hugs and candle lit dinners will be a constant in your life.
An older man goes the extra mile to ensure that his woman is happy and satisfied.
If you are looking for a man who pulls out chairs and holds doors open for you, your best bet is an older guy.
Dating an older man has a bad stigma attached to it. A lot of people find it immoral even when they don’t know the motivation behind the relationship.You can talk to him about any issue you are dealing with.And chances are, he will have had experience with it and can give sound advice. Woman B: I was 23 when we started dating and he was 39. We got back in contact and I realized how much I missed having him in my life. Woman A: Looking back, I think he needed a partner who would tolerate his bullshit if he was to be in a relationship at all. Woman A: The longest lasting of these relationships started when I was 18 and he was 40. However, we didn't start dating until I was 18 and he was 36. They split up around 2009 and I didn't hear from him for 18 months. Do you think your age was part of the attraction for him?You can stop worrying about who should text first and getting anxious when he doesn’t text back immediately.
