Men dating younger men

11 Apr

(At the time, I was 40 to his 35.) "He won't want to be with me when he finds out how old I am." Not so long before, a younger boyfriend had broken up with me by saying, "I think you're going to be too old to have my children." I decided then I'd only date older. We fell in love, got married and now have a baby girl.

That's a shame, because I think it's a major benefit. That's not just a younger guy you're dating; it's utopian values, in human form. When I first started dating Alex, I assumed he was my age.

That’s not to advocate for making your younger man or woman a doormat, but it is nice to know that a lot of the more immature fights that might head your way (especially on the whiskey-soaked fight nights) are staved off by the age difference. Stamina This one goes without saying, but cliché or not, my god will dating a younger man keep you young.

With all the hormones of a teenager, but all the shoulder muscles of a young Alec Baldwin, Jake and I ultimately did little else except watch sports and fuck.

It was actually on a birthday of mine, one a few years past 25, that I slept with my first younger man — a co-worker I assumed was my age, or a few months younger at best. So quiet, in fact, that when he brought up trying light bondage in bed once, my best friend’s reply to hearing about his request was “He’s said five words to you total, and one of them was handcuffs?!

He turned out to be a whole five years younger than me — four, if you’re generously rounding, two when I talked to my friends about him — but in actuality, a full five years younger than I was at the time. ” But Jake’s request to try out handcuffs brought something else starkly into focus: that until I was deeply, deeply in a committed relationship, I was often reticent to try anything new, mainly for fear of looking stupid.

That is, until I started sleeping with younger men.

There’s Less Pressure on Your Coupledom I may be accidentally writing the book on Peter Pan syndrome here, but the older you get, the more pressure new relationships have right away to be “real” relationships — full of day dates to the farmer’s market, cooking dinners at home together, and picking out sheet sets at Bed, Bath and Beyond. But it skips over one of my favorite parts of dating: doing a bunch of dirty, drunk shit together until you’re no longer embarrassed of each other.

If you are single over 40 and want to make your life more adventurous by banging some young hotties, you are much more likely to find your perfect match on Age than any other dating sites.

Here you will meet plenty of young women who like older men and young guys who like older women.

It’s not that the younger person feels grateful, but as someone who’s been the younger half of a relationship more often than the other way around, there is something to be said for freeing yourself from the fear of looking childish around them.

Plus, it can filter out about 50% of the fights I see more age-matched couples tend to get into.
