I'm dating one of my best friends, he is 34 years old and I am 21. (13 year difference) This is my first time dating someone who is over 5 years older than I am. I was hoping someone could give me some advice on how to make an older man happy. What are your expectations of younger women and what should I expect? He is kind of a child at heart, so he loves to go to festivals, events, and concerts. We both have a TON in common and we both feed off each other's energy. I know we're compatible but I want to be able to connect with him on an adult level sometimes.

My advice is be yourself. I dated a guy 6 years older than me, and when I tried to act mature I ended up making a complete a** of myself. Also, don't act like your relying on him as an adult figure either. Think of him and treat him as your equal. I would ask my ex for advice, and we got into the role of him thinking he could tell me what to do because he was older (though that might just have been his personality :/). However, before things starting going south I really enjoyed the relationship. He was mature, and ready for a relationship. I felt like he had things figured out, and that I could really talk to him on the same level. I don't think dating older men is such a bad thing. We as girls mature faster than guys, and its annoying dealing with guys who just want to party and have sex. My advice is there is no shame in it, and just have fun :). Though do keep in mind about what I said. Make it so that, if you pursue a relationship, that you both treat each other as equals. Think of age as just a number. Good Luck, Sweetheart!!<31
