After all, there is something innately sexy about a silver fox.He inevitably has a few years on you – professionally and personally.I will admit I'm biased: My wife is five years older than I am and we've been contentedly married for almost 40 years now. Alfred Kinsey's classic work on sexuality concluded that men's sexual hormones peak at 18, women's in their early 30s.Of course, factors other than hormones affect sexuality, for example, being experienced at sex, but a man increases his chances of sexual compatibility by marrying an older woman. Having lived longer, a person is more likely to have maturity that comes with age: not to fight so much about trivia, not as likely to have an affair having gotten that out of her system.Up until a few months ago, if any older man had come up to me and hit on me, I would have instantly walked away. He supports me wherever I am in my life, and talks me through whatever challenge I am enduring, making sure I have what I need. He helps out around the house -- whether or not I ask him to!I wouldn't have given him the time of day, or night for that matter. This is often because he's been there, or somewhere similar, himself; he knows what he needed or would have needed at that time in his life.3. If I need time to myself, he doesn't have a panic attack or yell at me for not spending all of my time with him.5. He does it without expectations, complains or a desire for validation. He has learned by now how to keep a job, or run a company.
He He's not going to run at the first chance he gets. If I want to or have to have a "talk" with my partner, he doesn't dodge or flinch at the prospect of a serious conversation.A 30-something is more likely to have that maturity than is a 20-something. As mentioned, older people have had more time to advance in their career.So marrying an older woman, on average, not only increases the chances she'll contribute more money to the family income, she'll be in a better position to offer career advice and maybe even help her husband land a better job.Realizing your new boyfriend is just a few years younger than your father is a harsh reality.Remind yourself what ignited this initial attraction and focus on that.
That was my experience from dating a much older man.
