Dating Older Guys
You know that saying “age ain’t nothing but a number”? Well, that’s true for some people, but we don’t think everyone feels the same way, especially when it comes to dating. We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with dating someone older or younger than you – there’s not! But when the person you’re dating is a different age than you, it tends to get people talking.
Lately, we’ve heard a lot of girls say that dating older guys is the way to go and we have to wonder… do you agree? We spotted this post in the message boards and found that a lot of you girls feel like older guys are better. Read what these girls had to say and then let us know: should a girl always date an older guy? Or is that a ridiculous stereotype?
Why older guys? Do you girls like older guys? Why do girls like older guys in general?

A few reasons.1) girls mature faster than boys, physically & mentally.2) through evolution, women can only have 1 baby at a time. So, women seek a perfect mate — stable, mature, responsible, wealthy. Usually older men are like this. However young men can have a million babies at once, just by getting lots of girls pregnant.”Women mate wisely, men mate widely.”3) older men are freakin’ sexier. Just ask me! Nothing is nicer than a man who knows how to control himself, who knows what women want, and who knows how to take his sweet time making sweet love to you.

Just to be the rotten apple of the bunch, I don’t see any reason to go for an older guy. Personally, when I see older men I see wrinkles, wisdom, and my father. When I see men my age I see potential, dreams, and someone to grow with. I’m not a big fan of experience and I honestly want someone who I can grow with, not someone who is already grown. That’s just my perception of it though. I doubt I’d ever date someone much older than me and if I did it would have nothing to do with his age and honestly, his age would probably be THE barrier that separates us the most quite frankly. I’ll stick with cougar town.
So what do we think? It’s way too stereotypical to say that all older men are more mature, more experienced and generally just a better boyfriend. Trust us, not all older guys are like this! There are plenty of younger dudes who are just as mature and experienced (if not more in some cases), and who are ready to be the perfect BF to some lucky girl.
But there’s also nothing wrong with dating an older guy (as long as you’re not breaking the law). The most important thing is to not let age be any kind of barrier, ever. If you connect with someone who’s five years younger or older, don’t let the fact that they’re a different age get in the way of things. Basically, do what’s right for you and don’t buy into age stereotypes – we promise it’ll make your dating life better.
Who do you agree with? Would you date an older guy? Would you date a younger guy? Tell us in the comments!
