Mature women dating young men
Most of the time, if the guy is mature enough his being a bit younger than you really shouldn’t be a big deal.The truth is, while dating someone younger can present unique challenges, a happy and healthy relationship is definitely still on the table. Woman B: Twenty-seven and he recently turned 42 (we're still together). We discovered we had a lot of interests in common and became good friends. Most of the men I dated more casually at the time were in their 30s. It also made me feel special — this man seemed so much more worldly than the men my age, and the fact that he was interested in me seemed too good to be true. Woman D: Originally I think I was flattered that somebody who had experienced so much of life was interested in me. Woman B: I rented a flat in the backyard of his then-girlfriend. But I knew he was probably 10 years older than me and that was a little bit of the attraction, because I thought that he would be older and more settled with none of the bullshit that you have in your 20s.We asked a few women about the unique challenges of dating a younger guy—here’s what they said.
