Dating a man 16 years older than me
during our dating season, I realized it was coming and started giggling over it, even then.It’s definitely fair to say that my dear man was warned, so I don’t feel even the tiniest bit bad about it.Ask him for help around the house, put him in charge of travel, let him cook you a special meal, and be comfortable in sharing your vulnerabilities with him.If you’re able to navigate gender roles and live in your SEXY Alpha FEMinine, the relationship can work for the long term.All kidding aside, there are some wonderful things about being married to a man who is more than a couple years older than you (let’s not forget that there is an assumption being made that along with age, a certain level of maturity has been reached!) and while this post is written with a bit of laughter, there are a few things you should remember. I would like to give you advice and I'm saying this from experience... Let me tell you, the age difference IS very much critical and not because society "says so" You are at different places in life, soon enough he'll want to move in together, have kids and get married.
Older women tend to exude a more “together” vibe, seeming to be more in tune with her needs (physical or otherwise), which makes her very attractive to younger men.Ultimately, in this scenario, being younger impacts his values.And since we believe a match made in heaven is based on common values, you may be setting yourself up to be in a mismatch from the get-go.This could be that often times older women dating younger men have already been married and decide to skip tying the knot again, so ask yourself what you’re looking for.
If it’s a long-term relationship, just be open and honest with any man (younger OR older) and you can definitely find yourself happily ever after in Cougarville.
I don’t believe that there is any “right” age for someone to marry, nor do I believe that a girl to marry someone older than her. Whenever women talk about hitting thirty, or forty, or fifty (or any other age that causes them to have a slight crisis), you can always smile a little.
