It’s nice once in a while to let the man take the lead, but it shouldn’t be a power struggle.

You both have something equally to give one another.

When you come across an older man and learn he’s single, have you ever found yourself saying to your friends, “There’s a reason he’s alone and still single”? This comment might make him and even you feel insecure.

George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.

But, it’s not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.This means she won't be complaining to you that she's bored all the time, and she won't be in your space begging for attention.Also, you will have more to talk about because she's actually pursuing her own hobbies. Sometimes dating older women is a learning experience.I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.I still get the common response from my friends: “He’s too old for you! ” I’ve also had a few people in my life suggest that I do it because I am a "gold digger."So, the broad answer is this: To clarify, I’m not dating older men because I am a “gold digger.” It’s more important for me to pull my own weight and be financially stable.And don’t call him an “old man,” even if you’re joking; it will only make matters worse!
