Dating someone much younger

I even tried it when my boyfriend and I took a short break, and I found it was painstakingly difficult and more complicated than my experience dating an older guy. The texting games (How long should I wait to text him back? It’s exhausting), the fear of commitment that plagues most twentysomethings, and the simple fact that most guys my age aren’t as emotionally mature as I am.

It can be tough when you and your older partner can’t share childhood commonalities (dude’s never read a book!?

Make sure you’re not missing out on a good time because you’re worried about what other people think about the number of candles on a cake.

I look young for my age and I act young for my age, so why should I feel ashamed (or even surprised) that I’m attracted to guys a few years younger than me?

And it works both ways – if you’re mature for your age, then you’ll naturally be attracted to older men.

‘I think younger guys are more fun and more adventurous than guys my age, plus they tend to have nicer bodies and a fresh/positive attitude to life!

’ Once, I met a guy whilst travelling and it wasn’t until we were on a flight to another country together that I realised I’d never asked how old he was. I almost spat out my drink but then thought, ‘Why does knowing how many years he’s lived on this earth age change anything?

I once got with a 37-year-old who had absolutely no idea what he was doing down there.

The 20-somethings all had way more of a clue than him.

And it ends up not working.’ This is a very valid point, but if you’re a woman who’s pretty chill about getting married and popping out babies (hi), then there’s no problem. No-one bats an eyelid if a male dates a younger female, yet a woman goes even a few years below her own age and she’s suddenly a thirsty ‘cougar’?

If you connect with someone, you connect with someone.

I know this firsthand, as I’m 25 years old, and I’ve been dating an older guy nearly 15 years my senior for almost four years.
