If you’re an older woman getting back in the dating game, it can be daunting to decide if someone is the right age for you.
And more often than not, the question is, “Is he too young for me?
Some other potential issues that can arise if an older woman is dating a younger man: There’s a chance you’ll experience some insecurities or anxiety about whether a younger guy will stray, but that can only happen if you haven’t mastered your own self-confidence that a guy is with you for the right reason.And since we believe a match made in heaven is based on common values, you may be setting yourself up to be in a mismatch from the get-go.However, as long as you’re both open and honest with each other and have discussed your needs, wants, expectations and values…then go for it.If you’re confident that he loves you for a host of reasons beyond your looks and the ego boost he gets from “landing” you as his woman, then it’s imperative you trust him and the relationship you’re building (which is true in any relationship, regardless of age).
And since it’s likely he’s in a different stage of his life (just beginning to establish his career, getting to know himself, and possibly not yet ready to make a long-term commitment) and you’re beyond that point, it can be a dealbreaker for a potential relationship.
Ultimately, in this scenario, being younger impacts his values.
