Dating a guy one year younger than you
You know your body, what makes it tick, and what turns it on and makes it happy. I haven’t met a young man yet who said they would never date a woman older than him. He’s not jaded by losses, failure, or the spectre of retirement.
Sure, some may be a little hesitant about how to handle or be with a woman’s children, but it’s not always a dealbreaker. Any man who hates where he is in life and resents others for it is going to be a drag. Sometimes I’ll cover the check when he’s in a tough spot and I’m feeling like sushi.
They’re very into the idea of spending time with a woman who brings a little more to the table—a whole world of experience and interests outside of his own. He’s smarter than you think and would welcome a grown-up conversation, not to mention a mature relationship.
You’re wrong to think he couldn’t be turned on by you.
Guys aren’t all looking for a girl off a billboard.
After 12 increasingly dreary years capped by a wrenching divorce, I couldn't imagine why women in my situation (childless divorcées) complained about the prospect of reentering single life. Wasn't finally having some laughs, romance, and excitement the way to take the "crisis" out of "midlife"?
Parties, rock concerts, nightclubs—I dated the way I should have when I was younger: for fun, without an eye toward marriage.
If you’re a guy who appreciates an older woman though, no need to fly to Hollywood, there are cougars prowling your very own college campus.
