I'm a 25 year old guy and I've dated a number of older women, including those 50 and up. Interracial relationships were once taboo. Gay relationships were once taboo. Now, it's time for mixed-age relationships to become acceptable. To many guys, out there, I would advise to consider older women. And keep in mind, before any woman (older or not) is my partner, they are my friend first.
1. You can be yourself around her
A lot of young people care about conforming, fitting in and being cool. With older women, there's not as much pressure. Being yourself and who you are is even easier among people who don't care how trendy or fashionable you are.
2. She can be a mentor figure to you.
She is wise and has experienced a lot of things you haven't. Not only do you have a lover and a partner, but you also have someone who give you advice, from someone who has both a mature perspective and know remembers their life when they were at a similar point as you.
3. You both have unique strengths to offer each other.
A relationship with two extremely similar people would be boring. In a relationship with two people from completely different walks of life, completely different background, you each have something to provide each other. You don't just revel in what you have in common. You explore new territory.
4. She's direct and knows what she wants
She's been in relationships. She knows what she likes and what she doesn't like. She won't leave you because you couldn't provide something she didn't even know she wanted.
5. She has no time for games, drama and crap
There's no "OMG I'm so so totally interested" and then next week she ghosts on you and doesn't return your calls. If you ask an older woman out, she will either say "Yes", "No" or "Let's take it one step at a time".
6. She's more experienced in bed
This is self-explanatory but it's good to have a partner who has 20+ years of experience in giving beejay's and all sorts of other things.
7. She learned from past relationship mistakes
This is a big one. A lot of older women have some failed past relationships that made them better at relationships in the future. Especially women who have had a divorce know their personal failings.
8. She accepts who she is
Younger women are self-conscious, but as they get older, they learn to own who they are. Oh, they're 15 lbs overweight? Who cares. They're a bit of an oddball? Who cares. They're settled into their life and they don't have to please anyone.
9. Lower risk of babies
The older a woman gets, the less likely you are to need a condom. Also, it's not in an older woman's interest to have more babies anyway, so you don't have to worry about being a premature father.
10. Love is love
Maybe this should have been #1. The most important thing in a relationship is personality, fun and sexiness. Sexiness is not just looks (even though I've dated some pretty attractive cougars). Sexiness is an attitude, and you can have sexiness at all sorts of ages. I swear to God. Even if you're with someone 30 years older than you, if your personalities connect, then you won't even notice the age difference when she's wrapped in your arms.
