Dating someone 18 years older
We've had talks about what is nonnegotiable and about certain things he may be open to in the future. I think he was much more secure and caring of the awkwardness of sex than a 26-year-old.But again, I think it's more because of who he is, rather than the more experience.However, after the relationship with the significantly older man ended I vowed to only date close to my age again.I think that there is definitely some truth to the "age is just a number" mentality, but having the experience I did, I don't buy it completely. Woman A: I was working in retail at the time, and he was a customer. He looks younger than he is and is in very good shape. Woman C: I knew he was older, I just didn't think that he was that much older. The next time we ran into each other was when I went to interview for a job in the ski resort's lift department, which he happened to be in charge of. I think he can't really find a woman to keep up with him, even in his own age group. The man I dated was essentially an 18-year-old himself when it came to maturity. Her older brother had invited a bunch of the people they worked with at the mountain over and I happened to be there. I think he was attracted to me because I asked him out, and I was able to banter with him off the bat.
He is a film nerd and usually mentions the year a film came out. " It's now at the point where he preempts me saying that. Once we were a more formal couple things became much harder.My theory is that the two are linked and that the age difference facilitates a dom/sub dynamic.Woman B: I think I've always been attracted to people older than me. There is a particular immaturity connected to the hookup culture which I just have no time for. I've found that most guys my age have trouble dealing with strong-willed, smart-mouthed girls, even though we are supposed to live in an age of feminism and all.None of my friends at school understood the relationship and they had no interest in hanging out with him when he would come visit me at school.Additionally, the friends that he had that were his age were incredibly judgmental of my age and the relationship.
