Dating a man much older than yourself, is a good idea for at least 7 reasons. Women are attracted to older men for many reasons so I decided to cover just 7, but there are quite a few more reasons that a lot of girls prefer older men to boys their own age . So what is older? I’m not talking a year or two that almost qualifies you the same age. I’m talking 5 years and beyond. I’ve definitely never been into guys younger than myself and this might be because I tend to associate younger guys to my kid brother. It’d be like dating my younger brothers friend! I don’t know about you, but that just freaks me out. Anyway, here’s the list.
1. They know how to treat a woman
I’m not just talking about being polite, holding the car door open, waiting by the door and allowing a woman to enter the room first, or anything regarded as being chivalrous. Those are all fantastic and I’m thrilled when a men still does those things. I actually like it when a man holds the door open for me. The other part to this reason involves the bedroom. Older guys know a thing or two about how to treat a woman just the way she wants to be treated in bed without the young attitude screaming ‘Nahhh I don’t do that!!
2. They are more stable in many areas
Dating an older man, means that he has most likely been through more crap in his life that he was going to be willing to make your relationship work. Older men are stable when it comes to having lasting relationships, being able to manage finances accurately, they are willing to quit living in the past, they are more forgiving, and they tend to be more mentally stable too.
3. They have more confidence
As well as most older guys over 25 start to stop caring what others think. He isn’t rude or anything like that, but he doesn’t do things just to please others. He dresses how he wants and is confident that his attire is perfectly acceptable. I’ve noticed that older men also are more apt to strike up a conversation with a woman. They appear to be past the point in their life where fear or intimidation stopped them in their tracks. I really like this aspect of older men.
4. They seem more mature
Sure, there are a few younger guys my age at 21 that I’ve met who were fairly mature, but not like the older guys. 25-30 is the mature guys I tend to date but many girls my age would go out with much older. The word I’m looking for might actually be ‘refined’ instead of ‘mature’. There will always be a select few who never truly grow up. For the most part, I’ve found that older men are more mature in most aspects.
5. They’ve already made a few mistakes and learned from them
It’s frustrating to date a guy who keeps making mistakes over and over again and never learns how to handle things in a different way. I guess there are always exceptions to every rule. Being kicked around for a few years really whips a person into shape. Older men have made their mistakes, done their time pondering how to amend said mistakes, and learned from the entire experience. These guys are usually quite a bit wiser and I find that comforting.
6. They know what they want
This applies to in and outside of the bedroom. I like a guy who isn’t fickle when making decision. An indecisive man is unnerving. I knew a guy who wasn’t able to make a decision on his own. He’d spend at least half an hour trying to decide what to do for the evening. He was the one who asked me out on a date, so I figured he had something in mind. He never did. When I’d suggest something he’d agree then think of something else only to disagree with himself. Looong!!!!
7. They are past the drama
You know the drama I’m talking about; high school style drama. Street Drama. Older guys don’t usually have room for drama in their lives. They often don’t tolerate it. This is very refreshing. I can’t stand drama and try to avoid it at all costs. I’m a happy girl with no stresses but of course, there is always the inevitable drama that life brings along, but staying away from friends who drag you into it is something most older men have found a way to eliminate and that’s what’s separate the men from the boys.
If you’ve had a different experiences, with older men then feel free to let us know! I find it interesting as to why women are attracted to certain ages of men. Like I said before, younger men don’t do anything for me, but I do enjoy the company of older me. Why do you think some women tend to be attracted to older men?
