I'm trying to understand my attraction to men 30 + Would you say it's due to never having a father in my life or the novelty of it, or even both? I'm pretty mature for my age but I'm not sure if I'm crossing a certain line here. My friends do not approve at all but I just find an undeniable attraction and an increase in intelligent conversation. If I date a man my own age the relationship lasts 2 months max compared to when I date older. Is it just me or men my age/the attraction of someone older?

Here are my theories on it...
> the whole father figure thing (as you mentioned)
> the novelty (again, as you mentioned)
> dating guys who are beyond that 20 year old posturing stage (as many guys that age do), so they're not into showing off as much.
> dating guys with cooler toys. After all, most older guys have nicer cars, maybe a bike (like someone I know), and their own place, rather than living with 2 other roommates.
> Different stories. High school stories barely even count now for us. Our good stories start with "When I was overseas in ______ last year...".
> Their idea of going out for dinner is a little more than debating between McDonalds and Burger King.
> Attire: to most of us, this is Hollister link This is just people waiting to be laughed at link
> Different social circles; older guys don't view a night out as solely house parties or raves.
> It's nice going out with a guy who drinks at a reasonable pace, rather than impressing his date by downing 6 tequila shots back-to-back.
> Different perspective on a lot of things. I'd have never guessed it at 20, but it's amazing how much I've changed from my 20's to my 30's.
> We're still cute. :)
Or, it could just be that you see a physical attraction in older guys. Some people like blond hair, some like tall people, you could just like guys who're older than you. Hmm... do I know a guy in his 30's that's single...lemme think... :)0
