Dating someone younger
And remember, it's kind of sexy when a man feels empowered enough to discuss his feelings.
There are enough hurdles to making a relationship work, however old you are, so why let age add more stress?
These days the idea of young women dating older – often significantly older - men barely raises an eyebrow. A long stints in an asylum for the criminally insane? But just because she hasn’t shared a similar experience, don't feel that she wouldn't relate to your life or your issues; open up and you never know what wisdom she could offer.
But just because you were her age once, it doesn’t mean that dating a young woman is always plain sailing. Whatever the age gap, here’s how to date a younger women successfully. Youth might imply less experience, but it doesn’t mean a lack of empathy, nous and emotional intelligence.
You’ve been on this earth for longer, remember, and you should have learnt by now that you deserve someone who is more impressed by the size of your heart than your wallet.
Furthermore, don't presume that you have to “take care” of her emotionally.
We get it, you're financially comfortable, but unless you are a member of the Kardashian family, you do not need that much bling. Don't flash the cash too freely Salaries generally get bigger with age, so there’s a reasonable chance that you earn more than she does.
If you really like her, just go with the flow and be yourself, regardless of whether “yourself” is a silly, dorky, immature 57-year old or a wise and mature 24.She’s a woman, not a child, after all - even if she is your daughter’s age. “When I was your age...” “Young people are so ____.” “Oh you weren't even BORN when this album was released.” “You were still a toddler in 1989?E Yes, it's gross and it doesn't need to be pointed out. Don’t assume you know better Keep a check on your tone; is it supportive or patronising?You just get to be unapologetically yourself and be as confident as you want. To them you can do no wrong, you’re mature, you know what you want. More Support While a younger man might not be on the same level as an older man financially, they definitely make up for it in emotional support.A younger man is way more likely to be in tune with his emotions and is way more likely to offer emotional support when you need it, unlike the older men who tend to be very closed off in that sense.
Twenties = shock; thirties = chic; forties and beyond = cheque. Leave the trend-led streetwear to youngsters who need to compensate for a lack of personality or confidence. Now is the time for creating a capsule wardrobe, a slick canvas of smart pieces which make the most of the fact that you can now actually carry-off “suave” without looking like you're wearing your dad's wedding suit to a funeral.
