Older men dating younger men
Amber Soletti, founder of On Speed and Singleandthe “Being older, you’re more successful and established, while he’s still climbing the corporate ladder or even getting a career going,” she says.
“In some cases, a younger guy is developmentally in a different place,” says psychotherapist Robi Ludwig.
Younger men are as adventurous outside of the bedroom as they are inside it, and they’ll bring out a more youthful, vibrant side of you, says Lori Bizzoco, founder and executive editor of Cupids “He will see you as smarter and worldlier, so he’ll want to please you, not just physically but emotionally and intellectually,” she says.
“He’ll come up with creative date ideas that bring back romance and youth, and make you feel empowered and appreciated.”When you enter into a new relationship, it’s no secret you’re bringing former boyfriends along with you. “Men can have preconceived notions about women and relationships based on past experiences,” says Samantha Daniels, a professional matchmaker and president of Samantha's Table Matchmaking.
“This can de-masculinize a man and make him feel like he’s unable to provide for and protect you.”Even worse, women in this situation may end up being a sugar mamma rather than an equal partner.
“A man can sometimes make his girlfriend feel like more of a mommy-figure than a peer,” Ludwig says.
