If you're dating - or thinking about dating - an older man, you may be concerned about keeping his interest.
While your concerns are perfectly natural, keeping his interest is not as problematic as you might imagine.
Looking back at that relationship now, seven years later, there are so many things I wish someone had told me before I decided to become the Lolita to this guy’s Humbert².
That, by the way, is actually a comparison I made at the time, which is so gross to me now.
Additionally, an older man will probably really enjoy talking things over with you.
By asking him about important decisions you're thinking of making, he will not only be able to offer insights, but he will also feel recognized and appreciated.
There are actually two things to consider here – his children, and your potential children. As a man gets older, it becomes increasingly likely that he will have fathered some children along the way.
These children will take up his time, whether they live with him or he spends his weekends with them.
When I told him I was a writer, he became intrigued.(Um, probably don’t do this, you guys.) It wasn’t like I was stupid. But I didn’t have enough experience or wisdom (as opposed to intelligence) to completely understand what I was getting into.I thought I was totally prepared to deal with the daily realities of having a boyfriend who was older than me by a decade-plus, which turned out to be less than correct.You never know when you’ll find love – it often comes from the most surprising places.And at e Harmony, as we’re focused on deep-down compatibility, who you connect with can be even more surprising.
