When you have a situation where a man dating an older woman seems a bit odd, hold on just a second, as in many situations it can turn out to be the perfect relationship. Men do not like clingy women, and in many cases relationships in the mid-twenties, when a couple is of similar age, finds the female abandoning her lifestyle, and wanting to move right in with the guy.
So men are finding that women who are a little older, who have their own careers intact, are much less likely to put the clinch hold on them. This gives a relationship time to mature and for a couple to get to know one another on terms other than just hitting the sack together.
A maturity in a relationship is built on many other things than just sex. The ability to talk with one another and exchange ideas with out a major battle ensuring is a big step in any relationship.
It is also important to men to be able to feel that they can retreat into their own areas of involvement until they feel comfortable in including the woman 100%. Too many younger women, they feel are all in too fast for the comfor level of the man.
There is the problem of seemingly immature males, where their general “life knowledge” is not quite mature enough for his older female partner. Older women do not want to “raise” up their male counterpart, they do not want to be his older sister or his mother.
Also an older lady does not want to be responsible for the man’s finances either, such as when they eat out, he should provide some of the cash in that endeavor. Going dutch is rather awkward, unless she suggests it, or it is mutually worked out.
A relationship has to be made workable on terms which both parties agree upon, and between two people of similar age, this just takes time. Think about the fact that when you have a very noticeable divergence in ages, that it is probably going to take longer, and more effort will have to be expended in order to make it work.
Younger men will have to step up to the plate with responsibility and accountability. This is not to say that he has to know everything, but he is going to have to be solid in his role as far as career, self confidence and a willingness to compromise to some extent to make a relationship work.
Youth is great, but it is wasted on young people is not the view that he wants his older partner to see him as being in. By the same token, the older women has to realize that the age difference is going to be a factor where he will not have experienced everything yet either.
It takes a mutual growing together in any relationship, and in the case of a man dating an older woman, the growing needs time to mature and come together naturally. I’ve talked a lot about granny dating, which is for much older women dating younger men. Other guys prefer cougar women aka cougar dating. Some of my friends hang out a site called cougardating.tv – which has been around for many years and is one of the leading sites for cougars on the prowl, who are looking for cubs! Go get ’em! 🙂
