Problem with dating older men
As one self-described ‘grandad botherer’ aged 30, (let’s call her Daisy) told The Debrief ‘during my twenties I just realised that older guys were classier and cooler about most stuff than men by own age’.
She added that, following extensive research in this area, she discovered that guys who were 40 were also ‘in general, better in bed, had their own place, made excellent breakfasts, were never a dick about it if you didn’t want to see them again and don’t mind when you get pissed and called them 15 times in a row at 4 AM.
Couples with age differences may also have different goals.
As girls reach the age of 18 and dive into the adult dating pool, many find that older men tend to strike their fancy more than guys their age.
Whether a man is 15 or more years older -- or the age difference is only a few years -- negative factors may play a role in the success or failure of the relationship.
As hard as it may be for a younger woman or older man to hang out with their partner's friends, mixing the two groups of friends can be even more challenging.
Friends in both parties might have difficulty relating to one another, says relationship expert Matt Titus, as cited in the Fox News magazine article, " 5 Pitfalls to Dating Older or Younger." Couples who have age differences can have trouble befriending other couples with comparable age differences as well.
