While this may seem like a much-needed break, there is potential for you to end up at a home-dinner party socializing with a group that may tell you about their son or daughter that is “just about your age.” Awkward. Dating someone 20 to 30 years older than you means you’re probably going to see time take its toll in many ways.When the allure of dating someone new wears off, it’s important to accept your partner for the person that you met – even if they are 20 years your senior.I also seem to attract younger guys too, usually 3 or 4 years younger but I have dated a guy 7 years younger (he was definitely an old soul in a young body).One of my friends has a 6 or 7 year age gap with her chap and they've been together 8 years. I almost didn't go out with him because of the age difference!I'm done having kids, and my children will all be out of the house in a few years, and he doesn't want kids of his own.We are both frugal in about the same ways, have about the same level of cleanliness, and we both like having our own things to do.Im not posting this at the cougars sub reddit, cause i dont think is that much of an age gap.

But after a while I just knew it wasn't going to work out...while we may have had a lot in common, I just felt like we really couldn't relate to one another in many aspects of our life. We are peers in the relationship and respect each other, which is what we both need/want.Others may prefer a more mentor/pupil, mothering/dependent relationship to feel satisfied. In the earlier sources the rule had a different interpretation than in contemporary culture, as it was understood as a formula to calculate suitable age for the bride, instead of a lower limit for the suitable age.An older man usually has an established work, social and home life. Older men are often looking for something consistent. You won’t catch yourself with lingering thoughts of other lovers or competition.As a younger, or transitioning individual, this stability may be exactly what you need. You can be sure that he won’t play games like millennials, since he’s past his prime player years. Mature men have refined tastes, and that isn’t limited to his pallet.
