5 Reasons Why It’s Better to Date an Older Man

dating old manIf you’ve ever dated an older man, you’ve prob­a­bly got­ten a mil­lion and one ques­tions about what an age gap rela­tion­ship is like, and why you’re wast­ing your time dat­ing older men when there are so many young ones out there. Not to worry, we’ve got you cov­ered. The next time some­one shows some inter­est in your less-than-traditional age gap rela­tion­ship, here are some of the rea­sons you can share about why it’s bet­ter dat­ing older men.

• They’re finan­cially sta­ble. Older men have made their money and, at this point in their life, they’re more will­ing to sit back and enjoy the ride. That’s why so many of them enjoy being sugar dad­dies. They’ve worked hard to make their money in their younger years, and now they can afford to wine and dine a beau­ti­ful lady. When you’re dat­ing older men, you never have to worry about mak­ing ends meet or where the money for your next bill will come from. Finan­cial sta­bil­ity is an appeal­ing asset in a time when the econ­omy isn’t so reliable.

• They’re gen­tle­men. There have been sur­veys done about women’s dat­ing pref­er­ences, and a lot of women have said that when dat­ing older men, they tend to be much more polite and respect­ful towards women. They know how to treat a lady with class and style. Older men in age gap rela­tion­ships are more will­ing to lis­ten to what you have to say and don’t just see women as sex objects.

• They’re set­tled. While younger men are busy work­ing to estab­lish their careers and make money, older men have done the work and now know what they want at this point in their life. They don’t want to waste their time play­ing games when they enter a new rela­tion­ship. When dat­ing older men, they’re usu­ally more open and hon­est about their wants, needs, and expectations—and that’s the way it should be, because it makes your age gap rela­tion­ship so much health­ier in the long run.

• They’re still sexy. A lot of peo­ple seem to have this impres­sion that once a man passes 50, he’s done for, so age gap rela­tion­ships can never be sex­ual. The truth is that not all men get fat and impo­tent with age. Look at George Clooney or Johnny Depp—they’re both older men that still have a crazy amount of sex appeal. Besides, we live in an age where a 60-year-old can be in bet­ter shape and look younger than a 30-year-old. So, those age-old stereo­types that old men are, well, “old,” are long gone. Yes, his body will nat­u­rally go through changes over time, but even still, older men are con­fi­dent in their own skin, which is such an attrac­tive qual­ity in a partner.

• They’ll guide you in the right direc­tion. An older man has already gone through a lot of the things you might be expe­ri­enc­ing in your life right now. He’s bet­ter equipped to pro­vide you with a reli­able opin­ion on how to han­dle a cer­tain sit­u­a­tion. So, along with finan­cial sta­bil­ity, dat­ing older men can also help in other departments.

What do you think: Why else do you think age gap rela­tion­ships and dat­ing older men are better?

About Isabella

I was never patriotic, so when Independence Day came, the last thing on my mind was to go out and celebrate. I was bored and I was lonely, and though they weren’t my normal crowd, thesse girls were friends and family members who I grew up with. But Diana had her man, Marsha had hers, and my cousin Lisa had her own. I was the only one who was single and my taste was just too high; the kind of men they dated did not appeal to me. I wanted the executive, the entrepreneur. I was 22 and unhappy about my life. I yearned to be in a relationship; I felt I had so much to give a man, and yet I was single. My friends and I waited for cab and I was still second-guessing whether or not I really wanted to go out. While we were waiting, an older looking gentleman driving a blue pick-up truck drove up to us. As he slowed, he said, “Don’t move. I’m coming right back!” He drove off, leaving a trail of his cologne, as he sped away to drop off the construction workers sitting in the back of the truck. Literally moments later, he came back, stopped in front of us, asked us where we were going, and told us to get in. It turns out his name was Keith. After Keith dropped us off, I realized I didn’t want to stay and asked him to take me back to where he picked us up from. He turned, looked at me, and said, “You were the reason why I picked you all up. I wanted to get to know you. So, I’m happy you decided to leave with me.”
