Advantages of dating older men
I don’t believe that there is any “right” age for someone to marry, nor do I believe that a girl to marry someone older than her. Whenever women talk about hitting thirty, or forty, or fifty (or any other age that causes them to have a slight crisis), you can always smile a little.
And, of course, I’m only sharing from my limited experience. Getting older is as easy as puddin’ pie because in your circle?
All kidding aside, there are some wonderful things about being married to a man who is more than a couple years older than you (let’s not forget that there is an assumption being made that along with age, a certain level of maturity has been reached!
) and while this post is written with a bit of laughter, there are a few things you should remember.
Unlike guys in their 20s, men in their 30s and above have an established sense of who they are in this world and what they’re doing with their lives.
This makes them much more relaxed and less eager to impress (which is never an impressive quality) than their younger counterparts.
You’re young and beautiful, and he’s technically out of your league.
This year, my husband, who will move up into his forties, will officially be married to a girl still in her twenties. Actually, we’re just over ten years apart but it so happens that there are three little months between his fortieth birthday and my thirtieth.
Considering the fact that he teases me mercilessly about my abundance of gray hair, I think it’s about time I get to talk up my great youth.
Chances are he’s lived on his own for quite some time.
The whole, “Well, my mom used to…” has pretty much faded into a distant childhood memory.
You have to do it a lot less frequently, as the older one gets, the less one spends on friend time.
