7 Mistakes Some Mature Men Make with Younger Women
He finds someone who he really likes, a younger woman, someone who looks like she could be his daughter. The more he spends time with her, the more he sees a future with her. However, there are obstacles internally and externally that prevent this courtship from being a wonderful, memorable experience.
The mature man made some mistakes during this age gap dating experience that makes her question his loyalty, possibly caused discord among family and friends while leaving the couple feeling uneasy about the future.
You could be making the same errors when it comes to dating younger women.
One. Are you impressing the younger woman with your material wealth?
Stop it. If you don't want a gold-digger don't encourage her to act like one. Be humble, modest about your wealth. If asked, answer briefly, but avoid bragging.
Two. Did you tell others how old she is?
If you did already, stop that too. If you don't want condemnation, don't invite it! The more you talk about how young and youthful she is, the more the uncomfortable tension in the air will grow especially amongst jealous older women. You will be making it hard for her to be welcomed into your inner circle when you bring up her age often.
Three. Are you having sex before really feeling comfortable enough to be seen with her in public places?
Don't do it again when you know you aren't ready to present her in front of everyone. You are only setting yourself up for future arguments. If you aren't serious about her, don't make her think you are.
Four. Do you talk about your young partner with exs in order to create a desire for them to want to reconnect?
Why would any man do this? But they do. An ex is an ex for a reason and drawing her out of her cave of anger and confusion by talking about your new girlfriend often is only going to make matters worse sooner or later.
Five. Do you lie or cover up unflattering details of your life in order to keep your young partner around?
So as to appear like he is in the know and is "cool," some older men will not share much about themselves and act more interested in their date. If you want an open, honest relationship, it would make sense to share aspects of yourself as they come up, not hide them.
Six. Are you acting controlling, like a father, and forbid her to have a life apart from you?
A younger woman can detect a father figure a mile away. Some gravitate to older men because there are some things that they do that remind them of their fathers. However, many don't want their partner to become their father. So when you find yourself monitoring her every activity, you have to ask yourself, "Do I have a desire for a daughter?" If this is the case, let her go, don't use her to fulfill your void.
Seven. Do you keep her a secret and then spring her on critical family and friends?
There relationship is not off to a good start when you can't even talk to your family about her or you feel apprehensive about sharing someone that you love with them. Conquer the fear and the nervousness simply by preparing everyone who you know will support you and leave out those you know you don't. Springing a younger woman up on anyone will make them do more gossiping than welcoming--and how do you think that negativity in the air will make your partner feel?
Take a moment to pray, plan, and protect that one you believe is the apple of your eye!
