Dating guys younger than you
Don’t let the worry that younger men aren’t ready for a serious relationship put you off. Because Friendship Transcends Age You see friendship transcending age all the time in the movies. In the film The BFG, no one even seems to think it’s at all weird that an old man becomes a young girls best friend (probably because he’s also a giant who lives in a strange world populated by other giants – his age is definitely the last thing we’re worried about! Instead, we’re encouraged to date older guys because they’re financially stable and have good jobs, lots of contacts and will take us on lots of vacations. It’s a status symbol thing, and we’re supposed to be thankful that we’ve been allowed into this older guy world. Because Young Guys Are Supportive The older we get, the more we relinquish our dreams. Conversely, we’re told that all younger guys are spotty, gawky, immature hipsters who are too lazy to get a job. This certainly happens to guys who seem to get grumpier as we get older. There is no correlation between age and maturity – none at all.Shake this from your head and you’ll be more open to dating younger men.We’ve all heard our friends say it: “I just don’t get along with guys my own age. They don’t want to take naps every two hours, and they’re wiling to be spontaneous. Unfortunately, when you meet older men that are a similar age to you, they tend to view this experience as “baggage.”Not so younger men.
After all, shouldn’t we be trying to date guys who already have a good job and are ready to settle down?”However, you know that, while Bill is your age, he’s much more immature than the guy you’ve just started dating.People always love to compare ages, as though it’s a measure of taste, maturity and so on.Ever met an older man who tells you not to chase your dream and to get real? It’s because they think the dreams have automatically passed us by once we reach a certain age. Just because they think the boat has sailed for them, they tell you to quit dreaming, too. They’ve got their whole life in front of them, and they’re still chasing dreams. If you’ve still got a big dream that you’re harbouring, a young guy will encourage and not discourage you. Because They’ll Get Older Sure, they’re young now and people might raise eyebrows. There won’t be as many eyebrows raised because he’ll have got older himself. Because They Might Fulfil Your Needs We all have relationship needs, and perhaps lately you may have found that the older men you’ve been dating haven’t been fulfilling them. Younger guys have relationship needs just like you, and it may transpire that you meet a guy who’s needs match yours.
Because our friend would tell us to “get real” before introducing to their friend Herbert from the church who is balding and likes slippers?
