If you’re an older woman getting back in the dating game, it can be daunting to decide if someone is the right age for you.
She supports herself and is very in touch with her needs.
Some younger men feel like they can learn from her and that she has enough life experience for both of them.
Older women tend to exude a more “together” vibe, seeming to be more in tune with her needs (physical or otherwise), which makes her very attractive to younger men.
The problem, however, can be that an older woman is simply a challenge for the younger man.
And since it’s likely he’s in a different stage of his life (just beginning to establish his career, getting to know himself, and possibly not yet ready to make a long-term commitment) and you’re beyond that point, it can be a dealbreaker for a potential relationship.
Ultimately, in this scenario, being younger impacts his values.
And since we believe a match made in heaven is based on common values, you may be setting yourself up to be in a mismatch from the get-go.
However, as long as you’re both open and honest with each other and have discussed your needs, wants, expectations and values…then go for it.
This is EXTREMELY important and will make or break where your relationship is headed.
