It takes a strong, confident woman to date a younger man. While its gaining popularity, a woman dating a man much younger than herself is still a cause for raised eyebrows and disapproving whispers.
Young men are adventurous and full of energy, which is why you may be attracted to them in the first place. Show him that you can keep up with him by surprising him with creative and interesting dates. If dangerous thrills are not your thing, be spontaneous. If you had plans to watch a movie at your house, surprise him by taking him out somewhere special or by wearing something enticing against a candle-lit background.
Don’t Treat Him Like A Child
The quickest way to turn your younger man off is to act like his mother. He’s an adult; let him make some mistakes.
Let Him Pay
Don’t get swindled into paying for every meal or activity you do because you make more money or are more established. If he wants to be the man and pay, let him pay. If the two of you have been dating a while, do what other couples do and take turns covering the meal. If you consistently pay when you go out, he may begin to feel that you think he can’t take care of you, or he may allow you to begin taking care of him and take advantage of you.
Make Him Wait
Some younger men like the novelty of sleeping with an older woman and only want to use you solely for those purposes. Don’t let someone turn you into a conquest. If he is calling you often in the evenings to come over or is constantly asking you what you can teach him in bed, get rid of him unless that’s all you want out of the relationship too. But if you’re looking for a solid, meaningful and potentially long-term relationship, wait until you really get to know him better before sleeping with him. Take the time to gauge his maturity and allow him to earn your trust. Any man who is really interested in you will wait and be eager to show you that they are genuine.
