Many men are interested in dating older women and there are actually some sound reasons for doing so. Older women tend to be better at handling relationships and more experienced sexually. They tend to be more mature and financially dependent.
Since men tend to have shorter life spans on average than women, the common practice of older men marrying younger women seems a bit cockeyed.
Of course, as with all things in life, there are pluses and minuses to dating older women.
An older woman has been through more life and may have more worries. She may have children. She almost certainly has ex-boyfriend’s and husbands, pending divorces, perhaps even financial obligations and debts. Also, since dating older women is less common than dating younger women, society may be more judgmental of the former option.
On the plus side, she knows more about relationships. She knows what she wants. She is usually flattered that a younger man is attracted to her. Compatibility and open communication are more important than her age. She does not need a man to take care of her. She is more likely to be forthright and honest and not make you wonder where you stand with her.
Of course, you want to find an older woman who is attracted to a younger man. You will have better chances of winning her heart. Here are some tips for attracting her.
1. Be yourself. She obviously likes you and is dating you for that reason. Be spontaneous and fun. Let her know the real you. Do not try to be someone you are not.
2. Be adventurous. Take her somewhere where she has not been before inviting her to a concert, jazz club or exotic restaurant. Be different from the other guys she has known.
3. Don’t just talk about yourself. Talk about her. Ask about her growing up years, her hometown, her hobbies, what kind of music she enjoys. Laugh at the humorous remarks or jokes she makes. She will see you as having a great sense of humor if you appreciate her own wit.
4. Do not compare her with anyone you have dated before. She is a unique person and should be treated as such. Show that you value and admire her qualities. Show that you are interested in her experiences and what she can lend to your knowledge about the world.
Most importantly of all, be sure to have the same zest for life but she undoubtedly does.
