An added bonus? When it comes to the care and feeding of her partner, the extent of a younger man’s daily intake will be more along the lines of a B vitamin rather than Preparation H or Tiger Balm. We like the former option better.
He may not know what he wants to be when he grows up: When you date a man who’s your age (or perhaps five or ten years your senior), he’ll most likely be established in his career and set on his life intentions. But a younger man might be just starting out or still struggling with what he wants to do. Not only can this cause an issue regarding his financial security, but it can also lead to an identity crisis – for both of you. Being with a man who is launching a professional career or perhaps is between jobs can be a daunting task. You just have to be up to the challenge.
Fear of leaving you for a younger lady: Jennifer Lopez supposedly has asked boyfriend Casper Smart, “Why don’t you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?” Well, we can think of a few things… But he doesn’t appear to be going anywhere, so perhaps she has nothing to worry about anyway.
That said, it’s a common for an older woman dating a younger man to fear that he’ll leave her for someone younger. Unfortunately, you can’t make yourself younger or make him older, so it’s critical to get comfortable and trust that his feelings for you extend beyond the physical.
Whether your type of guy is older or younger than you, just remember that if it feels right and he meets all your needs (emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual), you can go for it while still holding on firmly to your dignity!
