Is dating someone 10 years older wrong
Love knows no age, but if you date only people who are members of a different generation, it might reveal something about your approach to relationships.While people who date only people much younger or older than them owe no one an explanation, it may be helpful to consider underlying reasoning.That was my experience from dating a much older man.
They may be insecure about finances and thus want to be with someone established in his or her career.I grew up the only child of older parents (who are also 10 years apart), and often felt like an awkward old lady trapped inside a teeny-bopper’s body. I admit, I wasn’t as physically attracted to him as I had been to other partners. Have you ever seen a girl with a hideous boyfriend and thought, “Seriously, how the f$*k did he pull that off? Either he's just a nice friggin’ dude; or being with him boosts her self-confidence. In my case, the age gap was actually a cavernous black hole defying space and time. He’s old and sick now, and she takes care of him (even financially), but she’s still partying and sleeping around. I sometimes imagine what would have happened if I had stayed with my older man. The last I heard, my older ex was in a tumultuous relationship with another 20-something, this time a singer reminiscent of Björk. If you have an established career but your partner is still living with his or her parents, you could be in for a rocky ride.Before you begin a relationship with someone much younger or older than you, it’s important to make a careful assessment of your motivations.
Although comedians joke about these relationships, a significant age difference doesn’t make a relationship any less real or meaningful, though it may create some challenges that don’t exist when romantic partners are close in age.
