However, after the relationship with the significantly older man ended I vowed to only date close to my age again.
Woman A: The longest lasting of these relationships started when I was 18 and he was 40. However, we didn't start dating until I was 18 and he was 36. They split up around 2009 and I didn't hear from him for 18 months. Do you think your age was part of the attraction for him?
Either they aren't yet comfortable with it or they haven't been able to tap into their resources yet.
As we all know, bad communication in any relationship is a recipe for disaster. The mother figure often comes into play in this kind of relationship.
Woman A: I was working in retail at the time, and he was a customer. He looks younger than he is and is in very good shape.
Woman C: I knew he was older, I just didn't think that he was that much older.
An older date may have interesting stories to tell about his life, and he can expose you to a new world with exciting adventures.
