When he found out I was almost 10 years older them him, he was shocked, but said I seemed younger than my age.Ultimately, the age factor didn't matter much to him.Last month’s ‘Reasons to date an older woman’ seemed to strike a chord – so here’s the other side of the coin.
When we met online, I wasn't looking for anything serious but he was actually looking to settle down.
He had just finished law school and was working crazy hours.
One wise friend advises me that ‘an upside of dating someone younger is that they may feel less pressure (internal or external) to "settle down", so they won't push the relationship towards a commitment too soon.
On the other hand, particularly if you are their first serious partner, they may be swept up in "first love" and want that fairytale happy ending,' so you may need to be the one to put the brakes on if that’s not really what you want or where you see things going.
Sometimes it’s fun to be the experienced one – especially when it’s fulfilling for both parties.
