Dating a guy 12 years older than me
When it comes to the subject of love we always hope that there are no real significant barriers to its success.
In our hearts, if not in our heads, we’re convinced that love will always trump practical concerns such as money, social class, race and even gender. And what about age as it relates to older women involved with younger men?
Remind yourself what ignited this initial attraction and focus on that.
Dating a younger man may bother some but don't let their opinions bother you.
I recently received an e mail from a separated, late-40s woman who stated that she wanted advice on how to land a much younger man — say, late 20s or early 30s.
The age gaps spanned anywhere from 10 to 14 years, with women in their late 40s and early 50s enjoying relationships and/or marriage with men in their late 20s or 30s. Couples in this situation had to address the fertility concern head-on, with some choosing to take the leap relatively quickly while others took a pass.
And then there’s also the concern about one’s looks.
Fortunately, that’s changing as more older-woman and younger-man couplings make headlines.
