Advice on dating older men

When you are dating a guy, there are always things you have to think about- how to do your hair, will he notice your new dress, how to surprise him on some special occasion, etc.

But, when that guy is a lot older than you, there is a certain level of expectation that you will have to meet in order to make the relationship work and that is not always an easy thing to do.

Often, a younger guy and an older woman would “decide” upfront that their relationship will be casual, and that they should not expect any commitment from each other, because they know that the end of that relationship is inevitable because of the seemingly irreconcilable age difference.

A woman who belongs to that category should enjoy your relationship with a young guy and all its benefits and thrills, while recognizing that it will eventually be over due to no one’s fault.

Others consider the above approach to life to be irresponsible or even reckless, and feel much more comfortable planning their life out, including their love life.

Should she have cut it as soon as she felt that she was developing feelings for the guy? should she continue seeing the guy, enjoy dating him as much as she can while she can, and not worry about the outcome of the situation too much, without thinking about the future too much?

I don’t think any woman can find an absolute and unequivocal answer to this question, and I frankly don’t believe that such an answer exists, as it would heavily depend on that specific woman’s goals and needs at that specific point in her life.

Being around a younger guy makes a woman feel younger as well.
