In both cases, this may be due to the allure of the possibilities that come with mixing ages, interests and backgrounds.
Many women who have reached an above-average level of success in their careers grew up in a time when there weren’t that many women in positions of great leadership or authority.
This will enable you to feel confident and stop questioning “Am I too old for him? Find comfort and confidence in the fact that he is interested in you, or you would not be having this conversation in your head!
Once you have established common ground – you both have mutual interest – soften your approach with him sometimes. Encourage him to share his dreams and passions with you, even if he is still developing his career.
Younger men can find these qualities provocative and exciting – not threatening, but challenging.
To show your best qualities as a man, and to be taken seriously in the dating pool, compliment your female partner when she discusses her success in her career.
Of course, you can have a relationship with a person of any age, but maybe you don’t know what you’re looking for, or you notice the dates that feel most comfortable or promising are with guys that are younger than you.
The whole package comes with seasoning and maturity and those are qualities in women that you are drawn to.If you are tired of dating in your own age pool because maybe those women are immature, or not ready to commit to something more than casual come and go relationships, honor the woman you are with by verbalizing what she means to you and letting her know without question what you bring to the table.Eventually, you both can come up with joint interests and goals as a partnership, and the age question will melt away into a distant memory.You will just be a twosome and hopefully, your differences in age will not affect any aspect of your experience.In general, we’re all figuring this out as we go and this, like everything, is written from that perspective.
He needs to feel that, despite an age difference, you don’t take him any less seriously and you welcome the energy and vitality he brings to your relationship.
