One of the woes younger women tend to deal with when it comes to dating are men playing games with them.
“It’s not always what you can bring in bed, but keeping us engaged as a woman,” she says. They lose that dating mentality,” says 25-year old Rebecca. “It’s because I don't want to deal with an immature, inexperienced, naive child... “If I'm not ready for something but you were ready years ago, find someone who's there and leave me alone.
We like going out and doing things, so you better be ready to get that ass moving! So basically, if you don't like going out and getting drunk at the club or hitting some wack-ass music festival, maybe don't date a 20-something. Remember that she's not looking for a sugar daddy.“Not all of us are financially helpless.
We're looking for a life partner, not a father figure," 35-year old Ahna says, echoing every other independent woman out there.9.
Time creates wisdom – but it also creates responsibilities and complications – mortgage, kids, career, etc.
All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older. Still, most of them fail miserably, for the exact same reasons that I think Penelope is suggesting.
Okay, Evan, I agree mostly with your opinion on younger men/older women. I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman – physically that is, but why would a 28-year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? I can totally understand why older men go for younger women.
Put another way, if a woman has an array of other quality options closer to her age range, what incentives would she have to date a man who is SEVENTEEN YEARS OLDER? Before any 40 people get all hot and bothered about this – I am not judging. I do think people improve with age (my wife is nodding). She doesn’t need a guy who will be taking Viagra when she’s sexually peaking at 43..But see, for men who covet younger women, it’s not whether you look good for your age – it’s what age you really are. If she wants to date a guy who is 6’2”, makes 0,000 , likes skiing, is within ten miles of her house and five years of her age, you know what? All she has to do is go on Match.com, and wade through a few thousand applicants. There are many other things that are attractive about older men. They can afford nicer restaurants and vacations and have cultivated greater tastes in the arts.They’re more experienced, more chivalrous, and more likely to want to settle down than a twentysomething party boy.“When I first told my parents that I was dating someone much older they were skeptical -- but once we hit the one-year mark they finally understood that it wasn’t a phase, and wanted to meet him, which was weird, but I think that the way my boyfriend handled it was great."He acknowledged the elephant in the room by cracking a joke with my dad about a sports championship they were both alive for that I was obviously not, and from there the meeting went much more smoothly.
