10 year age difference dating
I got this comment many times with my last relationship and felt even more confident hearing it.
I’m not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn’t been fulfilling for me.When you come across an older man and learn he’s single, have you ever found yourself saying to your friends, “There’s a reason he’s alone and still single”? This comment might make him and even you feel insecure.There’s always a reason, but the best thing is not to push. The important thing is how you two feel about one another and the good times you share.I had a normal childhood, but I have been living in the “adult world” since I was a kid. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way.The only thing probably missing in my life is a partner, a published book and an owned property… To elaborate even further, I’m an only child, and growing up, I never had many close friends. I was teased and picked on a lot from the kids at school. I guess that’s where I began the attraction for the older man type, and it used to freak my mother out.And don’t call him an “old man,” even if you’re joking; it will only make matters worse!
Personally and professionally, he has one up on you and may think only he has a right to call the shots in the relationship.
He’s confident and can teach you a thing or two with his advice. This is great for me, since I am a whirlwind during the week and it balances me out.
He may be older, but he’s learned a lesson or two about making money, saving money and balancing his checkbook. He’s been through multiple ups and downs in relationships, and his feelings are in check. With endless kisses, hugs and soft lit candles, he goes the distance to make sure you are happy and satisfied.
I am aware there are possibilities where two people can successfully date with an age gap of more than eight years. (Seriously, she was born on the same day and same year.
If that's not an easy conversation opener, I truly don't know what is.)But after all sorts of successes and failures with women, as time has gone on, I've found at least common failure: a massive age gap.
So, I'm proposing this "8-year rule" in dating as an absolute.
