Psychology of dating an older man
You never know when you’ll find love – it often comes from the most surprising places.
Meeting someone later in life means they’re more likely to have become set in their ways.
You didn't want to be with that guy who wanted an "outdoorsy girl" anyway. By the time they're 27, they could be sleeping with a sexy Chewbacca for all they care. No, you can look forward to text from him either the next day or never. But if you're right for each other, you can count on him being the Jack to your Rose. Not that he's going to die in a freak boat accident a week after you start dating.
Oooh, yeah, work that upholstery attachment that you read about in the Miele manual. Some guys just come to this realization sooner than others *cough**cough*. He knows what he wants and he won't waste your time if you're not it. He won't have a nervous breakdown about meeting your parents. Thankfully, most guys grow out of being the Leg Hair Police in their mid-20s. Not that there's anything wrong with Cheez-Its, but nobody likes a clinger. He is an Older Man and his texting knows no bounds.
You will probably need to be prepared to be lower on his list of priorities sometimes, even if his children are grown up. If he doesn’t, are you prepared to sacrifice your desire for children to find love?
You might be fine with this, but it’s important to consider carefully. The last thing you should do is enter the relationship thinking ‘I’ll change his mind’ – you most probably won’t and it’s a huge gamble.
