Concerns about dating someone youger
I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:- They’re not ambitious enough, or they don't have a go-getter attitude.- They’re not financially stable.- They still want to date around.- They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.- They don’t have their sh*t together.I’m not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn’t been fulfilling for me.Friends say you're "infatuated" — why can't they see you're in love?They may impugn the motives of the younger person ("Gold digger!Or, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who are 25 years apart in age?In their defense, I hardly grew up dating or crushing on men close to my age group.When I would go away on trips and had my guy take care of my apartment, I always came home to flowers on the table, chocolate or homemade gifts. Besides feeling good together in public, you look great together, too.Even though there have been those people who have judged, you’ll be surprised that there are more people on your side than you think.
What about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were 16 years apart when they were married?George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.But, it’s not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.I still get the common response from my friends: “He’s too old for you! ” I’ve also had a few people in my life suggest that I do it because I am a "gold digger."So, the broad answer is this: To clarify, I’m not dating older men because I am a “gold digger.” It’s more important for me to pull my own weight and be financially stable.
