I Love My Older MenI have always dated older men. I was not trying to fill a void that my absent "father" left me with or anything else, I have just always found myself attracted to them. The older men I date are mature and responsible, yet still like to go out and live life. They respect that I haven't gone through all of the experiences they have, but they also realize I've gone through a lot they haven't and probably never will. I bring a lot to the table, as do they, and they can respect that. Yes, "boys" my own age are often far too immature for me, I have an old soul and do not tolerate the bullshit they often carry with them. I tried dating a younger guy once, the age difference was only two years and you know what it got me? A bruised cheek & split lip. While I know not every guy younger than me hits women, it is something I NEVER had to deal with with one of my older guys. And you know what else? It was one of my older exes who took care of things when that happened. They are the ones I can remain friends with and still enjoy their company even when things don't work out. There has never been the ugliness in a breakup that so many of my friends have experienced with guys their own age.
In short, I love my older men and until I have reason to change that, I will continue to date them and love every minute of it.
