Dating a man 10 years older
He does it without expectations, complains or a desire for validation. This, again, is likely because he has been living longer, has had more experiences and has learned from them. He helps out around the house -- whether or not I ask him to! He takes care of me, while allowing me to take care of myself. I need my independence completely, yet he is there for me when I ask for help. We support each other, but allow one another to just be. This marks another one off the checklist (if there was one). He doesn't yell at me for it or tell me how childish I am. She helps break patterns so that you are no longer stuck dating the wrong guys, and helps mend relationships that are on the rocks.… She either needs a father figure as a boyfriend, or he is immature and needs to impress a younger girlfriend with money or something. When you figure that men die sooner than women, she could be setting herself up for 20 years at the end of her life alone. Yes, I too would be concerned but seems you should ask her more about him and get to understand the attraction.He may have a stable life and be a serious kinda guy which may be a welcome relief from frat boys and typical college morons she's dated in the past or something.Are you dating an older fellow or thinking about dipping your toes into that more mature water? Or, in Jess's (Zooey Deschanel's character, for those of you who aren't fans yet) case, don't ask about his health: "How's your prostate? Our bodies are decaying."DO relish in the fact that guys get better looking with age, but you'll always be the hot, younger girlfriend.Well, my dears, you've come to the right place. DON' T complain about turning "halfway to 50" when he's "one year til 30".I guess I'm just saying I don't think it's all that weird. It has a lot to do with who she did not go wrong It is not an improper relationship and yes you are being old fashioned I dated a 21 year old when I was 32.
Not a single person among our friends and family has said a word or tried to discourage us in any way.I always thought that women who dated older men had to have "daddy issues." Not necessarily. This is the first time in my life that I have ever dated anyone considerably older than me. In fact, for a long time when I began dating my partner, I kept asking myself what I was doing with a man so much older than I am.
