Have you considered dating a younger man, but are afraid of getting your heart broken, being humiliated and ultimately dumped for a younger woman? Our culture’s discomfort with reversing the norm of the younger woman-older man dynamic may come from a deep-rooted evolutionary instinct driving women to choose the older, wiser, more powerful alpha male over the untested young buck.
However, most women are approached by younger men, not the other way around. By not associating yourself with that term, you will erase any negative feelings toward having a relationship with a man much younger than yourself.
Men are attracted to confident women regardless of their age. Younger women tend to have more insecurities as they are still figuring out their place in the world, drawn to dating “bad boys” and are more likely to play games with the men that they date.
As long as both people keep an open line of communication and respect each other, there is no reason a relationship between an older woman and younger man can’t work out.
Don’t put an expiration date on your relationship, unless a short fling is what you’re looking for.
Some women are afraid a relationship with a younger man won’t be viable, although this could be said of any relationship.
You never know what you’re getting into until you’re in it.
They continue to date other men until a relationship is established.
They understand that a date is just a date and not a marriage proposal. Your world isn’t crushed because one man didn’t call back.
If children are not a deal-breaker for you, there are several options for you down the road.
Also, discuss how you will handle the situation if your families are opposed to the relationship, and talk about the elephant in the room.
Don’t be afraid to discuss why both of you were drawn to date someone that isn’t close to your age range.
