Dating younger women advice
Bennett and Benedetto may make for a particularly striking example (“Lovely fetus you’ve got there, ma’am, here’s my number, have it call it me in 18 years or so”), but older men getting romantically involved with younger women is hardly a rare phenomenon.Every day, there seems to be another outrageous new celebrity coupling announced via pictures of some May-December frolicking: Jennifer Lawrence sharing a lollipop with Darren Aronofsky; Sean Penn dating Vincent D’Onofrio’s daughter; Mel Gibson having his ninth child with his 26-year-old girlfriend; Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen double-dating with their 47-year-old and 58-year-old respective beaus; Leonardo Di Caprio’s sending another lady-love packing upon her reaching the ripe old age of 25.Online dating stats bare out that average joes are just as enamored with younger women as their famous counterparts.
Little did Bennett know at the time, his future wife was there, too: She was the baby growing inside the belly of the female fan.
Still, more often than not, these pairings feel icky because they are icky: The parties aren’t on equal footing; different experiences and life stages are inevitably going to make it harder to relate.
Attention from an older man might feel flattering, but do your future self a solid and ask: Why isn’t this guy interested in people his own age? John Waters has said, “If you go home with somebody, and they don’t have books, don’t fuck ‘em!
Do not worry about other people: If you are an older guy and your girlfriend is noticeably younger then you are going to attract stares from people who think she is just with you for your money.
Do not let this ruin a good thing though, and if you are happy in your relationship then it really should not matter what other people think or say and in many cases they are just jealous.
