Realizing your new boyfriend is just a few years younger than your father is a harsh reality.
I never babysat the kids in my neighborhood once; I couldn't relate to kids at all. I would crush on older guys when I was 13, but I really didn't start actually dating an older guy until I was 26; he was 40.
When the allure of dating someone new wears off, it’s important to accept your partner for the person that you met – even if they are 20 years your senior.
An older man usually has an established work, social and home life. Older men are often looking for something consistent. You won’t catch yourself with lingering thoughts of other lovers or competition.
In their defense, I hardly grew up dating or crushing on men close to my age group.
I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.
I'm not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn't been fulfilling for me.
