I do. I end up dating older men and attracted to much older men. I always have a weakness for them. Like I get anxiety lol. And get drawn into a relationship. Youngest boyfriend i ever had was 5 years older than me.

Daddy Issues definitely work different for guys and girls. My dad was both emotionally and physically abusive.
This has led to me being a more submissive person. This doesn’t mean I’m shy or afraid, but I’m definitely drawn to women who are stronger, more outgoing and independent. I enjoy being able to provide for my partner as a way of making up for what I never recieved growing up.
At the same time, I do exhibit some of the same behaviors that my father did — Short tempers, inability to express emotion, dual meanings behind my works and ulterior motivations behind my actions. However, this is something I have worked strongly to work against. I’ve been extremely open with my partners and make attempts to not promise more than I can give.
At the end of the day our parents leave an impression on us that we can’t necessarily control, but we should be able to differentiate between healthy and abusive trends and behaviors in our interactions and relationships.4
