Dating much older man
At 19, I found myself in a summer fling with a man six years my senior. When you're dating someone in college, there's almost always the assumption that you're sleeping together. But older guys are just the right amount of old-fashioned. Whether this is because there is actually a paycheck to fund said dinner and drinks, or whether the #netflixandchill phenomenon started with our generation, I'm not 100 percent sure. Worth noting: If you are seeing a guy in his 20s who is still raving on about his brothers, it might be time to peace out. There's not enough time in the adult world for that. When you're around this man, whether he's a prof, a doctor, or therapist, you blossom into a mature, vibrant, young woman. You talk about bills and priorities and your job (that you don't have yet).
It may not seem like a huge age gap to some, but for someone who only recently went out in the world on her own, (aka college), it was a big difference. Maybe you are and maybe you aren't, that's up to you and your beliefs. There's no longer a need to keep your SO updated on every little move you make, keep them updated on when your class ends and who you're going to get coffee with later. A few texts a day is more than enough to let the other know they're on your mind. It's a difference that makes a hell of a difference. But God, is it nice to go out to a nice dinner with your guy just for the hell of it. You no longer have to sit and pretend you care about the kick ass party his frat through or how they're totally messing with their pledge class. They're interested or they aren't, but there will be no wondering. It's a fun role to play, and it makes you feel like you're hot shit. Since you are a 20-something college gal, this guy obviously notices that you're attractive.
" Of course, older guys want sex too, but that's not really what it's about--and no one is even concerned enough to ask. You don't have to be a genius, but at least show some passion or substance."-Ryan, 21"It turns me off when a girl applies deodorant in front of me."-Dylan, 23"When it's too easy. Listen up college guys, this is what we're really looking for. Set aside the creepy ones who just want to get in your pants; and you'll find a man who is more invested in making you feel appreciated. All joking aside, you should know what you're getting yourself into when getting involved with an older man. I think it's fair to say that guys are probably the most frustrating specimen on the planet.
I like a little challenge."-Austin, 24"Being a spoiled brat or selfish and vain. Know when to stop."-Jacob, 23"I don't want to hear about your ex-boyfriends... Older guys know what a woman deserves and they're prepared to give it to you. Don't make stupid choices, and make sure you know this man well enough to be seriously attached to him. It's also probably fair to say that they say the same about us.
Every time you go to a restaurant, the staff will glare at you both — him for being shallow and you for being a gold digger.
