What’s your opinion on relationships with older men? Particularly men 15 years older. Yeah, I really love him, but I wonder if I’m wasting my time because I’m not sure if relationships like this can actually last etc etc. I don’t know whether to follow logic or my heart. Help a girl out.
It really depends on whether you’re eighteen or thirty-eight.
If you follow the “half your age plus seven” rule, then twenty-nine is the magic age where dating a man fifteen years your senior falls into the socially acceptable range.
Then again, it’s probably not that big a deal if you’re still in your early twenties. These days, most single guys in their mid thirties are still mentally and emotionally in their early twenties, so if your man has a halfway decent case of Peter Pan syndrome, you could easily make it work.
If you love him, don’t let age get in the way. Follow your heart, babe.
One thought on “On dating older men.”
What’s your opinion on dating younger men? I feel like all the men I meet that are my age (34) are pretty much poison, and a lot of my girlfriends are having the same experience. There’s a cool breeze of a 21 year old drifting around, but is that just a solidly bad idea?
