A decade ago, the idea of older women dating younger men raised eyebrows and many questions, but not anymore! Younger men are now actively dating older women and vice versa because when you are in love, age definitely becomes a number and nothing else.
Another important thing to realize is that as magical as this kind of relationship may seem, it still does not have a high success ratio which is usually because older women are slightly more controlling.
If you are also seeing a younger man and you are head over heels for him and you really want your relationship last for the longest time then here are some tips to help you:
You’re Not His Mother
When you are in a relationship with a younger man, you need to act like his girlfriend not his mother. Stop nurturing him and taking care of him. If you support him financially too, you need to put an end to it. This kind of behavior can bring a shift in your sensual relationship and turn into a motherly one which is something you definitely don’t want.
Like it’s said, “the older, the wiser”, similarly you are surely wiser than him. However, this does not mean that you start nagging him and telling your guy how to do things right. This can be frustrating for him and can hurt his ego.
Men like to look confident around their women, so let him be a bit of a chauvinist and do things the way he wants. You don’t have to teach him, he can learn on his own.
Don’t Rush Into Marriage
As soon as you hit base two, it does not mean you are now ready to tie the knot. Loosen up and take things slowly and gradually. Rushing into marriage can be a deal breaker and it may force your guy to break loose and run away for good. Younger men are looking for fun and a great time before they jump into a serious commitment.
Respect His Opinion
Just because he is younger than you that does not mean “it’s your way or the highway”. You need to respect his opinion and be flexible. Rigidity and stubbornness can bring things to an end. A relationship of mutual understanding and respect flourishes and lasts for years.
Appreciate His Spontaneity
With a younger guy, remember things can get crazy because younger men are more spontaneous and energetic. Try to show zeal and appreciate him when he does something in spontaneity. Always being calculated, uptight and informed makes things boring and surely takes away all the fun. To keep the magic and fun alive in your relationship with him, you need to let him be the way he is!
