I’m currently in a relationship with a fella the age of my older sister.
It has its perks and it has its bummer moments, but I think dating up in age is something that women should do at least once in life, even if it doesn’t turn into something serious.
I’ve heard so many different rules about dating someone older, and they all boil down to a magic number: “Don’t date anyone more than ten years older,” or “Marriages never work if there’s more than fifteen years’ difference.” People love rules, telling themselves that abiding by them will cause them to get hurt less. The most important rule to follow is a general one: Make sure the two of you have the same goals for the relationship and for your daily life together. Think about whether you want to get married; have a big or tiny wedding; have children; be with someone who already has kids; live in the future in the same town or city where you’ve been dating; move somewhere far or close; have extended family very involved or not very involved in your life; have a relationship where you socialize almost always together or often; have a partner who’s more of a social butterfly or homebody; and have a partner who is very involved or not very involved in extracurricular activities. Psychological Age You’ve probably heard someone say, “He seems young for his age,” or “She’s so young at heart.” Though we all have a chronological age, we also have what I refer to as a ‘psychological age.’ How old do you feel, for example? In addition, ask yourself what the psychological age is of your prospective older partner. Again, use those early months of a relationship to gauge whether your sexualities are congruent enough.
Don’t embrace any rigid rule about age differences. Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because someone is older, he or she isn’t very sexual.
(Um, probably don’t do this, you guys.) It wasn’t like I was stupid. But I didn’t have enough experience or wisdom (as opposed to intelligence) to completely understand what I was getting into.
I thought I was totally prepared to deal with the daily realities of having a boyfriend who was older than me by a decade-plus, which turned out to be less than correct.
I know a woman who dates an older man, and he jumps from profession to profession while trying to make a career in music take off.
thats the best thing.mom accepts him.isnt sufficient? Do you have any problem with your bf in sexual part? If he is caring and respectful of you and you are having a great time - sounds good for you ! In the end it should all be worth it if he is the one.... Remember you don't need their approval, you do not have to allow them to come between you and your BF if they are anti him, but it will make things easier if they know things and support you. But have answers prepared for all the questions they may ask. I am 41 and my bf is 57 going to be 58 in few months..... But i told my parents they said ok you have my blessings...a week later they acted a fool. Just make sure you are ready for emotional and mental stress ok ? I didnt want to, but after a while, you see your parents true colors and see if they really care about your happiness Remember: Those who mind, dont matter and those who dont mind, matter let me know if you need any more advice email me at Well handle it carefully.. we told them in nov..april now and when 12AM hits im leaving.(It will never be exactly the same for two different people.) Assess Your Proclivity for Indulgences While many behaviors in the extreme form represent a problem or even an addiction, some of those same behaviors can be harmless if not taken to the extreme.Consider a list of activities that fall on the hedonistic end of the behavioral spectrum: drinking alcohol, gambling, shopping, traveling, and spending, for example.
