I know women that have dated younger men and they have had amazingly rich partnerships. I know women, myself included, that have dated men that are older and have found they are not ready for an emotionally mature relationship.
Age won't necessarily indicate if someone is ready to be with someone in an adult, emotionally mature and committed relationship,” Hocking said.
In my opinion, there is a lot more than just 15 years that separates you from your 42-year-old boyfriend.
He's had a heck of a lot more life experience than you have.
Just like how you’ve dated your share of challenging types of men like the Pinger, the Couch Potato and the older-and-balder-than-his-profile-guy…men also meet and enter into relationships with less-than-impressive types of women.
I’ve talked to countless single men over the years about their experiences with women, especially those in their 40s, 50s and beyond.
You are in your late twenties, a time in life when you are just beginning to become sure of who you are and what you want.
You are creating your life while he is already in the prime of his. People ask me all the time whether I offer dating and relationship coaching for single men. But I tell them that I help men by helping women who are dating after 40. ) One of the most transformational ways I support women is by helping you better understand GROWNUP men.Just like women, the men you’re dating have lived and learned.So the only way you really can empathize is to know their side of the story.Men and women are different in many ways, but we’re more the same than you may think. We all have dating disappointments and horror stories.If I follow what feels right, am I setting myself up for future failure? Usually, we don't question the things we know in our gut to in our best interests.
