5 Tips for Dating Someone Older Than You - ATTN:
We don't want to go to your friend's rave. It's not like a guy who's five years older than you is going to be taking you out for the Denny's early bird special ever day before promptly going to bed, but odds are those 5 a. Maybe just one shot of whiskey instead of seven of vodka. We can still drink people under the table, we just don't want to do it at some crappy, crowded dive bar. We don't want to be shoving our way through a bunch of sweaty people to get them. You're going to hear stories about "the old days" and wonder why we aren't as fun anymore. You missed our wild days and we're settled down now.
Perks Of Dating Someone A Few Years Older Than You
Occasionally, when I mention this, people seem surprised. So yes, there is a significant age gap. But to me, it never seemed like much. Probably because my first boyfriend, who I dated for almost five years, was just over thirty years my senior.
Men are like a fine artisanal premium cheese. They need to be aged exactly 52 months more than you to taste right. I don't know about you, but when I find myself talking to an older man, especially a man who is exactly four years and four months older than me, something clicks.
