Issues dating older men

07 Oct

Are you dating an older fellow or thinking about dipping your toes into that more mature water? Or, in Jess's (Zooey Deschanel's character, for those of you who aren't fans yet) case, don't ask about his health: "How's your prostate? Our bodies are decaying."DO relish in the fact that guys get better looking with age, but you'll always be the hot, younger girlfriend.

Well, my dears, you've come to the right place. DON' T complain about turning "halfway to 50" when he's "one year til 30".

Russell confesses he hasn't dated since 1989 and Jess replies, "That was the year I learned to use the toaster by myself." Not so hot.

DO be lovey dovey, but DON' T nickname him something based on his age (Fancypants is cool, though).

Well, in the excitement of dating someone who has his head in the right place, women sometimes forget that he is much older and is not going to stay the same age forever.

Many other ladies also just accept the truth that their boyfriends might be a little bit immature when compared to them, and move on with life.

Last year, I realized that maybe I should start having stricter standards for who I’ll date.

You know, require that a man own a home, have a job, stuff like that.

Finding those restrictions a bit picky, a friend and I devised a new strategy: We’d spend 2010 focusing on dating older guys.

It made sense: they have good jobs, they’re settled and own homes, and they’ve finally gotten to the point in their lives where they know how to treat a woman.
