Looking for tips for dating an older man?

Let Kay's wise post be your guide.

Thanks Kay!

So, you just started dating an older man for the first time but worry that you're ill-equipped for what the relationship will entail.

Fear not!

Because you're already dating, it's clear that you're awesome and will be just fine, despite your age difference.

If that doesn't put your nerves at ease, here are a couple tips for dating a "seasoned" Mr.

Right.

1. Be Patient

One of the biggest allures for younger women dating older men is the fact that older men tend to be more established.

While you initially marvel over his fancy home and career, you will quickly learn that he must work hard (and often) to pay the bills and continue climbing the corporate ladder.

Sometimes, this means less attention for you and almost always means that you and bew cannot be together every waking moment.

If you want to make the relationship work, you have to be understanding of his time.2

Don’t whine if he can’t stay up chatting with you until 4am every night.

Instead, work out a schedule to ensure that you both are able to spend time with one another without compromising your individual responsibilities

Be Spontaneous

My man is 22 years older than me, and he is way more attractive, kind and loyal than all the other ones my age that I have met. I just wish society didnt have a problem with that.

I wish that 18 and 19 were at the top of the list, just because they seem to be the most important tips to me. Also, I wish this article had included one or two precautions about checking for red flags or abusive behavior; that can be a huge problem with dating people, especially those older than yourself, so I think having that background knowledge is vital for this type of relationship advice. All just my two cents, and otherwise a very levelheaded list in my opinion.
