The first guy I properly dated was exactly a year younger than me (we shared the same birthday, I thought it was meant to be) and the last guy I dated was four years younger than me.
I recently found out that a musician I have a crush on is 21. However, women dating younger men isn’t weird to me – my dad is younger than my mum, my uncle is way younger than my aunty and my brother is younger than his wife. Me and my best friends have a running joke that we always fancy hot, younger guys (We’ll always have a thing for fresh-faced indie boys, God love ’em). ) and thought I’d increase my age limit to 39 to see if there were any silver foxes about. You could smell the desperation through the phone – it was like they had their mum breathing down their necks asking for grandkids.
They have nothing to lose by being and showing who they genuinely are. If you cannot say it in person then send a short email. We’ve had plenty experience of raising children, we don’t need to be a mommy to you. Know that many of us are quite experienced in relationships and we know how to treat a good man. We are used to having lots of space in a relationship. Hey men, if you are going to see a woman in another state for the first time, make sure you know what you are doing. ’ It’s the same with platonic friends too – while working in Sri Lanka, my closest friend was nine years younger than me, and it wasn’t a problem.She was mature for her age and I was immature for my age. There’s also this misconception that older guys are better in bed. Unless you’re dating 16-year-olds (not recommended unless you’re also a teen), chances are the guy you’re sleeping with will have had a fair amount of experience and if your bodies work together, your bodies will work together.‘Which then means there’s a weird time when a girl is like I NEED to have kids.And it ends up not working.’ This is a very valid point, but if you’re a woman who’s pretty chill about getting married and popping out babies (hi), then there’s no problem. No-one bats an eyelid if a male dates a younger female, yet a woman goes even a few years below her own age and she’s suddenly a thirsty ‘cougar’?‘I think younger guys are more fun and more adventurous than guys my age, plus they tend to have nicer bodies and a fresh/positive attitude to life!’ Once, I met a guy whilst travelling and it wasn’t until we were on a flight to another country together that I realised I’d never asked how old he was. I almost spat out my drink but then thought, ‘Why does knowing how many years he’s lived on this earth age change anything? If it’s honesty and directness you are seeking, know that many older woman come out way ahead in this area. Pay for her on the first date, even if she offers to pay her share. Don’t say you want to see her again if you are full of sh*t. And don’t do it because you are looking for a mommy. Don’t keep pestering her because it will come to an unhappy conclusion or blocking you from her site. Many of us are confident, used to being alone and on our own, so don’t feel that we want to be with you every minute of the day, because we don’t. Many of us had much experience with BS and we know when it’s coming at us. Again, it’s a turnon to a woman to have the man go out of his way to meet a woman. Same goes if you are going to meet at a certain time, and you are going to be late, text her and let her know. Neither one of you knows ahead of time where this will go. The most important is in getting to know one another, having fun, being honest and upfront. But once you go that route if you feel uncomfortable don’t do it. Give us at least some sample of what you look like. Please don’t make your profile sooooo long that it will totally bore us and even though you may look good, you will be passed by because of overwhelm. Most cases if a woman doesn’t respond to your first response, it means she’s not interested. Be aware that if we see something ain’t workin for us, but working for you and we can’t work it out, that’s probably the end of the relationship. If she’s desperate and is afraid of being alone, stay away, far, far away. She has had a lot of experience in having fun with children.Nikki, 33 agrees: ‘I pretty much only date younger men now, which I think is to do with my lifestyle choices of travelling and doing seasonal work.‘I currently have a boyfriend who is seven years younger than me, and so far so good.
