Problems with dating younger women

Even though it seems to you totally perfect, the relationship between young women and old men have their benefits and drawbacks, too. And one of the first of them is a condemnation of society, friends, family members, etc. Unless you look much younger than your age, you will face stares from others and different lecturing about how wrong it is.

Different people who disapprove of your relationships, including your and her friends, as well as your both families, they will talk to you about finding someone your age, etc. And please do not think that their opinions do not matter. It all affects relationships and the overall atmosphere very much. 

And if you can easily not pay attention to such circumstances and accept it all with a smile on your face, you can overcome the problem. But unfortunately, such hard circumstances often influence women more and they want to break up.

Relationship with an older guy: Generation gap

Polish brides adviceThe first issue discussed above is probably the easiest one. The next problem you and your young girlfriend may face is the generation gap.

Again, let’s mention that we are talking about a huge age gap here, more than fifteen years. And depending on your age difference, you might have a huge gap of interests.

Quite seldom, such relationships work very well and no one has claims to another person. But even more often, it is a real obstacle for both people to reach mutual understanding.

If your girlfriend is 20 years younger than you, she might have absolutely different interests. 

For example, she may want to go to clubs instead of sitting at home. You may want cozier and quieter leisure with her. Of course, if she is in her 20s and you are in your 40s or 50s. But if she is in her 40s and you are in your 60s, you may both have the same interests and it may not be a problem anymore.

A younger woman who married an older man may face health issues

Yes, guys. Unfortunately, no matter how young you are at heart when you are getting older, your health is not becoming better. Older means more health issues. If you are in your 40s or 50s and she is in her 20s or 30s, she will be much healthier and she, probably, would like to have a young and healthy man.

Yes, you may be healthy, young, and fit right now. But think forward. You will be getting older and you will be old in ten or twenty years and your girlfriend or wife who is twenty years younger will be still fit, young, and healthy. And one day, you may have a period when she should take care of you and your health.

From the human’s point of view, it is not very fair and a bit selfish from your side. A woman may be tired of it and may want something else in her life – a younger and healthier man. Yes, of course, if this is pure love, this may not be an obstacle. But young people should enjoy life and not take care of their old partners. 

Having children might be an obstacle

Dating a woman with kidsYour goal is surely to start a family. Now you probably realize that as a young woman, she might want to have children.

If you already have adult children, you may not want any. And once again, this is selfish because young women should become mothers.

Another problem is that you may also want children and she wants them too. Of course, right now as you both are not that old, it is fine and you both will be happy to have kids.

But now imagine how old you will be when your child turns 18. And depending on how old you are now, the question is whether you still will be around to help her with your children?

A young woman may not want to be left alone with a small child or a teen because her husband is too old for that or is ill now. And this obstacle is one of the most crucial ones. So if you are aimed to start a family with a younger woman, be ready for the fact that nothing will work out.

However, if you really plan to meet a younger woman and date and marry her, you should know some rules that would help you conquer her heart and enjoy this relationship instead of wanting to get rid of them the soonest. The first tip would be to stay fit and keep yourself in shape

If you think that a young woman may fall in love with a decrepit old boy, you are wrong. Younger women are attracted to older men only when they look substantial. They love not only your wisdom and grey hair, but also how fit and attractive you are at your age. Here are some more tips.

Find out whether your visions for the future match up

Dating guideYes, we understand that you choose a younger woman because of her beauty, energy, sexuality, and youth. Such a woman is a great benefit for your self-esteem and reputation.

She is someone other people will envy and you do not care about anything else. But please put some time and effort to find out not only how beautiful she is but also how you match up.

Even if you are not thinking of something very serious right now and are not going to choose your wedding rings, better start a conversation about what plans you both have in ten – twenty years. Are there any common ambitions? What does she think of starting a family or moving abroad?

These things are very important and you may not ignore them. Stop thinking of her beautiful look and young body and start a serious conversation. If you do not see any common future, why do you both need to waste your precious time?
