You meet a guy and there is no denying a connection. You both like the same sports team, you notice some of his flaws but that doesn’t phase you, and wow that body!
But a huge buzz kill is when you realize that when you were graduating from college, he was still a junior in high school.
Dating someone younger—whether you’re two or three years his senior or perhaps in cougar territory—certainly can work, but being an “older woman” in a relationship has to come with pros and cons, right?
If you are looking to take things seriously with your younger beau, make sure you take the following into consideration:
Pro: The Sex
You can’t deny that sex will likely be the best part of your relationship. Men tend to be at their prime in their early 20’s and not to mention they have more stamina–meaning they’re the secret ingredient to a tasty orgasm.
Pro: Always a Good Time
Not only are men always adventurous in the bedroom, but they love having a good time outside of the bedroom, too. Dating a younger guy will definitely have you feeling young again. Perhaps he’ll take you out to a place where you have never been before. If he’s an active person, he’ll likely make you enjoy a nice hike. Younger men are just as adventurous outside of the bedroom so enjoy the youthful feeling he gives you.
Con: Life Goals
Maturity is key if you want to have a successful relationship. Some younger men are not as mature as you would hope, and if your beau is one them, you will run into some issues. You might be at a stage where you’re looking to make your career dreams come true and he might be at stage where he’s still just looking to have fun and is not looking at his future yet. Big problem! If this is your issue, then you can either talk to him about taking life a little more serious, or continue to date until you find the guy that fits your description.
Con: Commitment Issues
Committing to someone is in your interest but your beau is still just looking to have fun and explore different things. Can you blame him? You’ve been there and know what that life is like. When you mention to him that you’re looking to get committed he can hit you with, “I’m just looking for a good time.” OUCH! Of course it might be a little hurtful since you’re feeling this guy, but those words should tell you a lot about where the relationship is going. He’s just not the one for you. What’s the right guy, if it’s not the right time?
