But let’s not pretend that we, as a culture, don’t worship at the altar of youth. He’s got the job and the home and the car, and been divorced with a kid already.If you’re over the age of 40 and have ever said, “But I’m told I look five years younger than my age”, then you’re not immune to it yourself. And nobody has more choices than a 28-year-old woman. So if a woman finds it more appealing to just step into that world – to jump from the prolonged adolescence of the late 20’s into full-fledged settled-down womanhood – that could make sense.As I got older, this led to me going after guys that were not only emotionally and physically fleeting, but that were completely emotionally disconnected and narcissistic.I had become emotionally unavailable myself and I still battle my reverse narcissism to this day. For a while now, I’ve wanted to post a photo of my parents and title the blog post “A Photo of Everyone I’ve Ever Dated.” I’m not sure about that exact approach, but I’m definitely going to write a post about dating versions of our parents soon because it’s one of those things where once you make the connection, your life changes.You stop negative patterns right in their tracks because you immediately know better.Unfortunately, some of us are or have been these kind of women.
Well, then these leading questions may just be all you need to drive the point home: If you said yes to any of the above, you are not alone.
They moved out of Hollywood, quit acting and made a happy family somewhere else. And for the older man it’s…Ohhhh isn’t she so cute. I dealt with those “mommy issues” real quick as I am not good at dating younger men.
I can have a relationship but I will always be smarter, know more, and have the upper hand because… After I dealt with my “daddy issues” I developed “mommy issues” and dabbled a little in younger men, becoming a puma. But I understand why some women like to date younger men. Women take themselves a little less seriously: they let go of some of their fairytale fantasies with men.
Younger men are less jaded; they have more of an excitement for life. The one man I have met in the past year that actually impressed me was a very successful 25-year-old actor who was just himself. He was nice, respectful, kind and he shared his cocktail with me, made a joke, and asked me about my life. And men start to grow up real quick, they jump from their frat style living to one of an adult life.
They are more eager to share, engage and are open to new adventures with less baggage…. He chatted, he introduced me to his friends, and he shared his drink with me and wished me luck with my trip to Italy. They become more successful in their careers and their maturity levels start to balance out with the earlier sprouted maturity level of a woman and we become compatible again. They get a little better with every new notch in the dating belt.
