They’ve been around the block a time or two, so they’re experienced in relationships, and they may be better apt at dealing with relationship issues. A partner you can take advice from is important to your personal growth.Then again, they’re experienced, and their relationships may not have worked out in the past.Older doesn’t always mean wiser, and they may have a lot of baggage.
Money can be used as power, keeping you dependent and on a short leash. It completely depends on who you are and who this older man or woman is.
Age shouldn’t matter if love is there, but it can be an issue, even in a loving relationship.
And it can be a deal-breaker if there’s no love at all.
My follower asked me “I met a man who is 15 years older than me. On the other hand, if you’re a young guy who’s mature, going after an older woman would be ideal for you, mentally and emotionally. If you’re young and free-spirited, you don’t want a stick-in-the-mud rolling their eyes at the walrus teeth you made out of straws at dinner.
You’ve never dated anyone who’s 10-20-30 years your senior, but this guy is something special, and you want to give him a shot. It’s a scientific fact that women mature faster than men, so if you’re a mature young woman who’s going after an older guy, you may be on the same level.
If finances are a problem, this can only be a good thing. A huge difference in income can be an area of contention in any relationship, whether there’s an age gap or not.
If an older man or woman is trying to buy your love, it’s unlikely that there will be any real love in the relationship.
If you aren’t particularly flush, dating someone older can mean a step up in the financial bracket.
Of course this can be a wonderful thing when it comes to quality of life…and you no longer have to fear your landlord or pick up the check.
Sometimes dating someone who is too mature can be a real downer.
Someone who is older than you can be your teacher in a number of ways.
