As a younger man, and even as a boy, I was always attracted to older women. I’ve had a few, but if I had it to do all over again, I know I’d still marry her again.Maybe its because I grew up with a mother who smokes.
If you’re like me and consider yourself a little PYT (pretty young thang)…corny I know, the thought of dating a man five or more years older than you may seem generationally awkward, and it can be sometimes.
Still, while you may not listen to the same music or you might be divided on what you consider the ‘latest trends’, there are plenty of perks in dating an older man.
If you haven’t tried it, you should at least consider it for the future based on the following reasons…
I was once a 24 year old man in love with a 46 year old woman, but that was a long time ago. And this next part is going to sound strange, but I was seriously attracted to older women who smoked cigarettes.
As a matter of fact, she cautioned me about it, but love heeds no warnings.
I don’t smoke and exercise regularly, so I’m in a great shape and have always looked younger than my age.
People who don’t know us as a couple have always assumed I was her son. My wife is a very nurturing and loving woman and I’ve benefited from it emotionally.
The 46 year old woman of my dreams smoked those long skinny brown cigarettes.
Later in our marriage, I would try to convince her to quit, but they were too much of a part of who she is.
