While there is a lot of hype and pressure on women to date men older than them it’s not all what it’s cracked up to be. There’s constant yammering on how dating someone your age won’t work out. Surprisingly it does and the benefits are way too good to miss out. Here we bring you all the right things about dating someone your age.
Fewer Power Struggles
Often times, women enjoy dating older men because they think they want the man to control most aspects in the relationship. It may seem appealing to let someone else make all the decisions while you sit back and enjoy yourself, but that’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Older men can exert too much power and control and leave you feeling trapped in a cage. On the other hand, if you date a man your same age, this situation is less likely to occur. You form more of a partnership instead of a father-daughter relationship. You make huge life decisions together instead of one person deciding everything for your future.
You’re His BFF
Marriages that last until death all have one thing in common: they are each other’s best friend. This leads to mutual respect for one another and you trust the other with your life. A best friend marriage is better than others when you throw in the aspect of children too. Children are major stressors to relationships, so you need a strong foundation so that you don’t fall apart. Older men may not view a younger woman in this way, which could lead to a rebellion on the woman’s part and the relationship deteriorating.
More Action in the Bedroom
It is a myth that older men know what younger women want when in between the sheets. A man your age can know just as much, and in addition have more stamina. A man your own age may also be more open minded to explore your se_xuality, whereas an older man might see anything besides a traditional se_x life as too weird. Therefore, with more energy and openness, you could go down a very happy road with someone your own age.
More Common Experiences
Your life experiences are what shape your personality, beliefs, and opinions. With each passing decade, there comes a new generation with different twists on their personalities, beliefs, and opinions. So, being with someone your own age is not just a matter of having things in common to talk about, it’s having shared ideologies and someone who gets where you’re coming from. Furthermore, it’s nice to be with someone who you can go to concerts, movies, sporting events, etc. An older man may not enjoy any of the things a younger woman likes to do.
