Traditionally speaking, it is considered “normal” for women to date men who are older than themselves. It’s a security thing. But what about women who date men who are much older? When the man is more than ten years older than the woman, quite often people will raise an eyebrow and wonder if she is after his money and he is having a mid-life crisis. In most cases, neither of these things are true. There are lots of benefits of dating an older man – let’s take a look at some of them.
Benefits of Dating an Older Man
Security has already been mentioned but it is an important thing for a woman to feel secure. That’s not to say dating someone of the same or younger age won’t have the same effect but overall, there is a feeling of being safe when dating a man who is a little bit older.
Good, old fashioned manners
Men who are courteous are a disappearing species, unfortunately. This is not a problem when dating an older man. They will hold doors open for you, help you put on your coat and carry your bags. Just because you can do all of those things for yourself, doesn’t mean you can’t let him help you out once in a while!
Possibly the biggest of all benefits of dating an older man is the level of experience he can bring to the relationship. When it comes to the bedroom, younger men may have stamina, but older men know all the tricks! If you want a man who can drive you wild in bed, an older man is the way to go!
It would be unfair to suggest that younger men have nothing to say because that is not true at all. But the benefit of dating an older man, is that he will usually have a tale to tell about all manner of different things. He also won’t be afraid to get into a debate – which can have its own advantages….if you know what I mean!
No game playing
If you have done a lot of dating, there is a high chance that you may have come across a “player”. The type of guy who will offer you the world and give you precisely nothing, while telling the same thing to a string of other women. Or perhaps you have met the “treat ’em mean to keep ’em keen” type? Older men will not put you through this torment. The chances are, they got it out of their system in their younger days and are ready to have a proper relationship.
The benefits of dating an older man are many and absolutely worth taking a chance on. Judgments from outsiders are no match for the things an older man can provide you with, both physically and emotionally. Older men make great dates because they are kind, loyal and through with playing games, so never let anyone else’s opinion stand in your way of dating an older man!
