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.
That means there’s a strategic advantage for women to snag an older gent—he’s had more time to accumulate resources and stability than his younger counterparts, which could make him a more viable partner and father.
I’m stubborn, hard headed; I’m confrontational; I have a hard time adjusting to things when they don’t go as planned; I’m protective (sometimes a bit too much); I’m outspoken, I’m picky, and I demand a lot. Because as much as I can be these things, I’m also a loving, dedicated person and I put my heart and soul into anything and anyone I love. When I used to work we could talk for hours about our jobs and consult one another on whatever business decision it is that we needed to make. So to have a partner that knows, understands and supports everything that you are doing is huge. He knows I love to scrub and get on my hands and knees and literally scrub everything and anything; lifting couches and beds type of cleaning; and he knows I like order and having things organized.
He doesn’t need much, yet he gives the world to those he loves and cares about. I guess all women are complicated, but I think I’m a bit more than most. I have days that I can turn into a raving B* literally. Yet a man like my husband was able to see through that and fall in love with me. As much as us women can sit here and tell them they’re this and they’re that; that they’re great and amazing, at the end of the day a real man who hasn’t reached his career goals and where he wants to be, is not a happy man. Matter of fact right now he thinks I’m mad at him 🙂 Saturdays are my cleaning days.
Anyone who’s been in a serious long-term relationship knows the journey isn’t without certain challenges, and when you’re dating an older man—we’re talking a decade or more—things can get even trickier.
Our furniture for that room came so there was no need to delay it any longer. That’s not so much considering the attempts he has made 🙂 I love his soul dearly. It had a very small halo around it and the band had small diamonds all throughout. At some point i want to modify or add a band to my ring.
Now, I’m not saying these are conscious reasons why dating a man quite a bit older—there have been several moments when I’ve thought that going out with someone closer to my age would be much simpler.
I even tried it when my boyfriend and I took a short break, and I found it was painstakingly difficult and more complicated than my experience dating an older guy. The texting games (How long should I wait to text him back? It’s exhausting), the fear of commitment that plagues most twentysomethings, and the simple fact that most guys my age aren’t as emotionally mature as I am.
It can be tough when you and your older partner can’t share childhood commonalities (dude’s never read a book!?
), but the benefits can certainly outweigh those little things.
