Dating someone much older
He has great dress sense He’s had years to find his style and he’s used them wisely. You had them on posters up on your wall and now you’re sitting opposite a lookalike at dinner. He doesn’t make a big deal out of his dating skills ‘It’s your turn to plan a date’… You’re free to enjoy each others’ company without such expectations of the other person.
They’re usually mid-forties with the years etched on their chiselled faces. He can afford to take you places Not only does he know where to take you but he has the means to do so. Neither of you are hoping to hit a milestone You’re years off kids and he’s been and done marriage.
Now this model of older person dating younger person includes women in new way, thanks to women gaining social stature and power (in both finances and influence).
Who doesn't recall the boon of the "cougar" trend: "A woman who seeks sexual relations with considerably younger men." We've seen it play out on popular shows like "Sex and the City" and in real life Hollywood couples.
We brought together Peggy Wolman to explore age gaps in relationships and what's required to make one work. From their take on the number of people actually in these types of relationships to how important any of this is in the larger scheme of finding and creating lasting love.But, there are also many famous couples (with huge age gaps between them) who don't make it: Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins (), split after 8 years of marriage.So, the question is — for however popular the trend is, can this kind of relationship truly work for the long haul?But every woman I know has dated people who have treated her badly.It would be the same if I’d only had relationships within my own age range.
