Most Helpful Girl
I am a 19 year old dating a 40 year old and first off I would like to dispel the annoying "daddy issues" tag people are so eager to hang on the girl... I have a great relationship with my father even though my parents divorced, and we talk about anything and everything. Not all age differences are daddy issues!
I personally like dating older guys because they are usually more mature, have more experience (not just sexually but general life experience), and hold interesting conversations. Now this is the first time I've dated a 40 year old, and I will never again. At a certain point you just don't have anything in common, you have different expectations, and from my experience, the girl is still growing, exploring and the world is her oyster while the guy has already lived and is at the point where he just wants to enjoy life.
People date people because they are attracted to them... my relationship probably should have stayed purely sexual, but others are lucky enough to really have a connection where the guy is willing to show the girl life and open her mind to new thoughts and the girl changes the way he has thought about dating... you'll never understand other people you just have to go with it!
