Age is just a number, and people of our generation seems to be understanding this saying just right. It doesn’t matter what age your man is, if you truly connect with him on all levels.
Everybody has their share of good and bad relationships. And some people come to realize that they need an older man to spend their life with.
Listed below are 7 things you should expect when dating an older man:
1. Normal conversations and healthy communication
Not every misunderstanding or miscommunication will lead to petty arguments or unnecessary fights. This man will like to share and listen at the same time. In fact, he might just surprise you with how he remembers information and uses it to please you some time or the other.
2. Less space
Dating an older man will mean that he would want things a certain way and it can even extend to his partners. He might start to seem controlling and interruptive at times. He might even like to know everything you’re doing and who do you spend your time with in a day.
3. Better s_x life
An older man has done his research and mastered the art of understanding their partners’ needs. Expect him to satisfy you in bed. Also, don’t hesitate to tell him what you’d want in bed because they wouldn’t mind delivering the same.
4. Past dating experiences
Always remember that just like you, they might have a dating history and they might even be friends with an ex. In this case, you both should just accept each other’s past and communicate about it to make each other feel comfortable about the same.
Older men are unafraid to love. They will pamper you with all their love and care. If you aren’t ready for it, you might start to feel overwhelmed. Make it clear to them if you aren’t in this for a long time. Because an old man will want to commit and isn’t afraid to do so.
6. Chivalrous but overprotective
This man might woo you with his chivalry by opening doors and pulling chairs. He will treat you like a queen. But he might get overprotective too and forget that you are very much capable of taking care of your own self. He might end up smothering you with a lot of his old school ways when you wouldn’t even expect. However, it will all be fine once you draw a line of what’s acceptable and what isn’t.
7. Owning up to mistakes
When an older man makes a mistake, he won’t beat around the bush and make it all sound like you are at fault too. Instead, he will own up to his mistake and do everything to make it right. If he ever offends you, he will very much apologize and work on his shortcomings.
