I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:- They’re not ambitious enough, or they don't have a go-getter attitude.- They’re not financially stable.- They still want to date around.- They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.- They don’t have their sh*t together.
I’m not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn’t been fulfilling for me.
When I would go away on trips and had my guy take care of my apartment, I always came home to flowers on the table, chocolate or homemade gifts. Besides feeling good together in public, you look great together, too.
Even though there have been those people who have judged, you’ll be surprised that there are more people on your side than you think.
That relationship was fun and short-lived, but what I've learned since then has taken me a long way when dating older men.I would consider those changes disfigurement of my character. I would rather be alone than have someone try to make me into his or her vision of what I could be or worse should be.Without you pointing out my shortcomings, I am aware of their existence- it has taken me 77 years to create them, I view them as part of who I am and elect not to change. I do not want a relationship with a critic but with a tolerant person who can overlook my shortcomings and accept me for who I am- an old man set in his ways and happy as is.When you come across an older man and learn he’s single, have you ever found yourself saying to your friends, “There’s a reason he’s alone and still single”? This comment might make him and even you feel insecure.There’s always a reason, but the best thing is not to push. The important thing is how you two feel about one another and the good times you share.
