I’ve learned what works, what doesn’t, how to create healthy boundaries, how not to get lost in a relationship, and am very aware of what I want in life.And though I love this man, and I enjoy his company more than anyone’s, I sometimes doubt if he’s had enough experience to know that I’m the right one for him.We asked 10 women to tell us what they learned from dating a younger guy. In my opinion, it never turned out well because they were intimidated by where I was in life in comparison ... They never took the initiative, or showed confidence.They weren't as independent as I am, and sometimes I just wanted them to plan the date for once." — Pam, 252.They're Drama-Free"When I have the choice, I date men who are 30 years younger than me.Men in their 30's are still about having fun, adventuring, exploring and building their career, and they appreciate a drama free connection with a woman.Or when women (and men, so many men) in my age bracket raise their eyebrows with an impressed look in their eyes, because my 6-foot-2 boyfriend may be young, but he’s also a head turner.He’s fun, flirty, and easy on the eyes, he brings out the innocence and youth in me, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Past partners of mine have had careers they worked years at, so it was easy to continue to put work first. Thanks to all the free time he has, I now schedule more free time for myself to enjoy with him.
It’s refreshing going to nightly events having him by my side.
He isn’t jaded and doesn’t walk into a party with preconceived notions or judgments or expectations on anyone in my industry, so I get to see people I’ve known for years anew.
A handful of the women set to be at the event are married to men in their later 40s who are on their second marriages, with a few kids in the bag.
How would this pretty young thing fit into this scene in the reel that is my life?
