I’ve been single for quite a long time now, and I’ve recently been exploring the world of online dating. It’s fun, it’s a great way to meet new people, and it adds a whole new level of excitement to my weekends.
Though I’m not ready to settle down any time soon, I’ve learned a lot about myself in the process. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that I much prefer dating older men. Yep, I said it! I’m done with men my own age, and I can’t imagine that I’ll change my mind any time soon. Here’s why…
Older men know exactly what they want
They say that women mature more quickly than men, and I tend to firmly agree. I’m at a stage in my life where I know exactly what I do and don’t want, and men my own age just doesn’t seem to have caught up with me yet. With older men though, it’s a different kettle of fish.
Older men aren’t afraid to be clear on what they want, and they’re less likely to play any mind games. When you sign up to sites like My Cougar Dates, you can connect with likeminded people who are upfront about their intentions and expectations. Everyone’s a winner!
Older men have more life experience
The older men that I’ve been on dates with have had a ton of life experience. They have travelled to so many interesting places, they’ve had success in their careers, and as a result, they’ve proven to be awesome conversationalists.
I’ve learned a lot on my dates, and I’ve had my eyes opened to new customs, new cultures, and new places. This means that dates are exciting, and you never quite know what little snippets of wisdom you’re going to come away with!
Older men know how to treat a woman
Okay, so of course this is a massive generalisation! But I’ve found it to be very true. Men my own age often think that a great date involves watching a series on Netflix and grabbing a takeaway from the nearest Indian restaurant. Though there’s nothing wrong with that now and again, I much prefer a proper date.
Older men are more likely to take you out to a fancy restaurant. They’re more likely to check out your interests and plan something that they know you’re really going to enjoy. If you’re interested in cougar dating or meeting people who are older than you, then I encourage you to go ahead and give it a go. I think you might be pleasantly surprised about what you discover along the way!
I know that I’ll continue to casually date over the next few months, and I’m looking forward to meeting a load of new people and making some meaningful connections.
And as you might have already guessed… I’m almost definitely only going to be dating older men! How do you feel about dating someone who’s older than you? Are you willing to give it a try?
