Dating Senior Men
Whenever I tell anyone in my social circle that I prefer dating senior men over dating young guys, the reactions range from surprise over disbelief to outright rejection. Even some of my close female friends find it weird that I tell them I am into dating senior men. Usually they ask why I would want to go out with a guy who could be my dad if I could have a handsome, hot boyfriend around my age. What they often ignore is that I am dating senior men by choice, not because I have to. If you ask me, there are great reasons why dating senior men can be a fulfilling experience.
Why dating senior men is the best decision I’ve ever made
Not too long ago I used to go out with guys who were more or less around the same age as me. We had similar interests, went to the same university and once or twice I even dated a guy I met through work. It never lasted too long, though. For a while I attributed this to differences in our personalities and ideas about dating and being in a relationship. However, at some point I understood that for me the age was also partly the reason why we didn’t match.
Dating senior men comes with a range of benefits
When it comes to dates and relationships, I prefer men who know what they want and who are self-confident. I should point out that I am talking about a specific kind of confidence, though. I cannot stand cocky, arrogant young guys who think they’ve figured it all out but are actually shallow personalities. For me, dating senior men means that I have seasoned conversation partners. Men who have a stable career, who are well-traveled, open-mined and interesting. Not everyday joes who have never left their hometown or who are fresh out of uni and think they can impress me with the same old stories about them and their mates.
How dating senior men can teach you a thing our two about yourself
The idea that you have to date guys in your own age bracket simply comes from what everybody else does. You see your friends dating classmates, fellow students, and colleagues around their own age, so you just assume that’s what you have to do as well.
However, who you go out with should be your decision, and you should make it on your personal preferences alone. Dating senior men can be a rewarding experience if you know what you want to get out of your relationship. For me, dating older men was a master class in loving, debating and getting a fresh perspective on life and the woman I want to be. I know what kind of lifestyle I want to achieve, what I expect from a partner, and where my priorities are. For me, dating senior men is the best way to get everything I expect from a relationship. I love the experience a mature man brings into my life and the feeling of getting the support I need wherever life may take me.
