Having older girlfriend, Good or not? My Girlfriend is 10 years older than me.
Some advice Please?
The general trend is for the female to be younger than the man; however,
if marriage or lifelong partnership is planned, the other way around is better, surely. Females tend to live longer than men, if men are younger, by about 5 or so years, they both end up croaking about the same time, making the time alone, generally shorter.
It's always good to have a girlfriend period. (Assuming you enjoy each other's company).
There is no "one size fits all" when it comes women or men for that matter. Health and attitude are probably more important than age differences. People often say of mixed age daters; “What do you have to talk about?” As if all older people are "out of touch".
Most conversations have to do with likes and dislikes, upcoming events, news events, disappointments, weekend plans, TV shows, movies, weather, where to eat…etc The majority of people choose to live their life in the (present) and not in the past regardless of age.
The vast majority of people select friends and mates that have common threads. It’s fairly unusual for someone to date a mature person and at the same time have a “best friend” who is running around giving people wedgies! Our best friends and significant others are normally people we share the same values with.
Having said that it's important to remember: (most) relationships fail! If they did not the majority of us would be married to our high school sweethearts! There is no reason to get caught up on age differences when in fact the odds are the relationship was not going to last a “lifetime” even if you were the same age! Live for today!
If you are not on the same page at some point in the future regarding the relationship or one of you commits a "deal breaker" then you will go your separate ways. This happens with all couples regardless of age. Best of luck!

Can An Older Woman-Younger Man Relationship Work?
by Lisa 4 years ago
What do you think about a younger woman dating an older man? (or vice versa)I've been dating a man that's 30 and I'm 23. We get a lot of jokes about it but there are also those who are against it simply because of our age difference. Do you think this is justified or does age really matter?

Does a big age difference doom a relationship when the woman is older?Some people refers to younger men in such relationships as "toyboy lovers". Is it degrading or is it just exact? Is the age difference an obstacle in a relationship when the wife's age gap from her husband is great?
