Let’s look at both so you can decide whether dating an older man is appealing to you or not.
Sure, Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy make their 17-year age gap look like NBD, but what's it really like to date someone way, way older than you?
That sounds dramatic; don't forget how it actually looks…
Women supposedly experience their sexual peak at age 35, while men allegedly go downhill after turning 18, allegedly. Wouldn’t it be nice to get old with someone and, as your rocking chairs creak back and forth, reminisce about the shows and music of your youths?
Why would you want to have to deal with your husband’s incontinence right after you finish cleaning up after your parents’ senior messes?
If you want to wait to have a kid until you’re in your early 30s, your older man is going to be about 50.
You will be a lot less likely to worry about money and stability since your man has had years more than you to figure this stuff out.
Two people attempting to make their way in the world and struggling financially in a relationship is one person too many.
