Why You Should Date Older Guys

Why You Should Date Older Guys

The gossip will be there: "Why do you want to date a guy that old?" This might be followed with something like: "You don't want to come off as a gold-digger!" But those women who know the advantages of dating an older man will defend their decision heartily. That decision can be described in one word: stability.

Need some convincing to date an older fellow? Consider the following reasons:

#1) Older Guys Tend to be Go-Getters

It doesn't sound like there would be a difference here, but the difference in ambition levels between a younger man and an older man can be incredible. Older guys have had the time to experiment with different career paths and different lifestyles and have learned what they want. They can think long-term and can prioritize better. This translates into a happier man, and therefore, a better partner.

#2) Older Guys Tend to Be Financially Stable

As with our previous point, knowing what you want to do with your life means a lot. Older men have had time to map out their careers and have learned to master their expenses. This says everything about their ability to set and keep priorities in their lives--which, of course, will include you.

#3) Older Guys Are Ready to Settle Down

It may not always be true, but generally speaking, an older man will know what he wants in his mate. For that reason, when he considers you as a potential option, he knows what he wants. Any sane woman will recognize that this as a huge plus.

#4) Older Guys Have Less Ex-wife or Baby-Mama Drama

Every past relationship has at least some baggage. The question is, how much is there? Older guys tend to have less hurtful baggage, like mad women trying desperately to get even. And don't downplay how happy you will feel when you realize how you aren't having to sit there and pretend to be supportive as you hear him and the ex hash who gets to keep what!

#5) Older Guys Are The Total Package

Older guys can have the best of all worlds because they might still have the benefits of being in good shape, plus the age and wisdom to know how to live a productive and purpose-driven life. As always, there are exceptions to the rules, but if you've hit a wall in your experiences with dating younger men, why not give an older guy a try?

Irie, Mon! thumbs up cheers
I 100% agree with this article. I did try dating a younger guy and I laugh every time I think about it.
WHAT EVER TICKLES YOU FANN HOOPS SORRY FANCY banana applause rolling on the floor laughing dancing peace cheering wave
I prefer younger guys as they keep me on my toes.
So where is an older man who is willing to date?
Bluesky60: Yes that is statistically true. My wife of blessed memory was 18 years older than me. But I wouldn't trade one day with her away for month with any woman on this site. When you have love, the rest just comes naturally. Would I do it twice? That's another question, but under the right circumstances, I believe I would. But here, I've found no such woman. I was in my 30's when I married her.

I'm only 57, but some ladies think I'm way old, some don't seem to notice. Age, it seems to me, is the least of the worries on this site. Scammers are of major concern to me. But they are fun turning in and watching their profiles disappear! ;)

Then that just means date younger dudes doesn't it statistically meaning in general right??
A guy should read this then:

sigh I do care because its required to me to date someone with my age range restriction I set for myself. I guess I expand it. Really 27 olds that really out there from that data alone...confused because its on research from that site that women who date or get impregnated by men below age of 30 have higher chance getting pregnant without risks. That just mean woman have to use sperm bank in long run.sigh
What study is this from?

Believe me, there are older guys who are more dump and stupid in dating.
Older women should date younger men

I feel nearly all of the women in here are either bitter jealous or both , because option for them is gone . Im looking for a younger women , I have had plenty of younger women who have read my profile it clearly makes it clear I have no treasure trove , they get love understanding etc from me and loyalty im 62 in number only . Im still on the fence , im not taking the first one that comes along but she certainly will be younger nuff said . Let the tagteam attack as you will , let the bitching commence bahaha
Miss Mimi. Smackin peace . You go girl. Pamper your man teddybear .

_ where's the. "Why You Should Date, Younger Women."

Ability to give birth, means a lot?

This , Article is an absolute Joke. I am very displeased by your ignorance to the whole fact of.

Its NOT things about them, As much as it Must Be. Them. - Themselves
I looks as most women do not know anymore what real love means. It seems they confuse happiness with big money and wealth. I know it is an appetizing idea. And older man seems the right prey for it. But beware most of these people end as a maiden and sextoy for their "husbands" , considering they are wealthy. Many women of the developping countries (=exploited by the industrial countries!) don't mind who the older man is as a person.
If he can increase their poor living standards then its OK. And they can go far into it, from becoming pregnant till working as a prostitute. dunno
Love is reduced to the financial status of a man, OMG! doh
Best example is president Trump and his wife Melania. One thing is for sure, she did not married him out of love.
What will she be without him? She is kept hostage by her thirst for money!
It's a pity and a waste for such a beautiful women. crying
But ......... the winner (= Trump and his scammed money) gets it all as the ABBA song stated.
Love is more than a high status. Otherwise you just act as the animalworld....... instinctively wink
Older men with big egos and big bank accounts will take what they want for the short term and the girls or women who think they are clever will end up feeling used , why don't i have a big account or wealth ? lol
Older men are easily fooled by much younger women .a beautiful young woman is irresistible to a much older man I'm talking man 55 plus and woman maybe 30 yrs of age . He's flattered he's turned on he convinces himself he's so handsome and irresistible by her messages but she's after his money security. If he has huge wealth shell stick around if not shell find guy with more money. Sad but true ......there's no fool like an old fool .......::roll eyes
iam 69. been dating 3 years. i have NO trouble getting young girls to talk about dating in a serous way. i know your going to say they just want my money. after a while i can see those easy. even before the subject of money comes up. most of the girls in there 20-30 say they cant find a good man there age. one girl 30 ish . have talking to about 2 years. says if she cant have me she wants NO one eles. we have never meet. and i am sure she would be a great wife. i NEVER thought that so many in that age range could be / would be serous about a man my age. when i started dating i didnt think the side benefit would be reg friends.
I met someone here who’s 25 years my senior. We hit it off on the get go!

I’m now awaiting for the approval of US fiancée visa and hopefully we’d be married before the year ends.

Thank you, CS cheering
Older men are prone to more health problems.
