Older for younger dating

18 Mar

When I first started dating my boyfriend, it threw me off when he didn’t text me, but—wait for it— instead.

And continued to call when he said he would and replied to messages fairly quickly.

Other inquire whether I was purposely seeking an older man when I met him.

(Spoiler alert: I wasn’t.) Introducing him to your family won’t be easy.

I know this firsthand, as I’m 25 years old, and I’ve been dating an older guy nearly 15 years my senior for almost four years.

It can be tough when you and your older partner can’t share childhood commonalities (dude’s never read a book!?And while cliché dictates that, sure, men are into it, there’s been some recent research done about younger females often gravitate toward mature men.Evolutionary psychologists say that relationships like this often occur because while fertility lasts only from puberty to menopause in women, it starts at puberty and can extend long into midlife for lots of men.I have to admit it’s comforting to be in a serious relationship with someone who’s somewhat financially responsible (read: less impulsive).From what I’ve gathered, a man in his 20s is more likely to blow his cash on frivolous things, while men in their 30s and are likely to save money for the future or for experiences, like a romantic vacation (wink, wink). “He texted me an hour after I texted him.” “What should I text him back? I can still remember the days when I’d utter those words and essentially have an anxiety attack every time my phone buzzed and it was a guy my own age I’d been casually seeing.
