As we all know, love is blind; it doesn’t see any difference like race, age, faith, and even gender. As the world is evolving, people are breaking the stereotypical barriers which restricted us from exploring more options and going out there to find the love of their life.
Women nowadays are not letting the stereotypes of society influence their personal or relationship choices. Hence, more than ever you see couples where the man is considerably younger than the woman. Are these types of relationships really different from the ones where the guy is elder or is this whole façade in our heads? Well! There is no definite answer to that question. However, we can surely try and discuss how in few areas dating a younger man is going to be different when compared to dating an older one.
They have less baggage from their past
As we grow in life, we keep on adding emotional and other baggage onto ourselves and it is not always easy to deal with and date a man who comes with huge emotional baggage. Hence, as a younger man would have had lesser experiences in life, it can be generally assumed that he would come with less baggage of his past. This would only make things easier in a relationship.
They are generally more open-minded
If a guy is open-minded about a dating an older woman, would also be a more open-minded person. They would also be willing to have more experiences in life and are open to trying new things. This can also be a very rejuvenating experience for you.
You can be in the driver’s seat of the relationship
If you are a bit of a control freak, then probably dating a younger is more suitable to you. In a relationship with a younger guy, you will get more chances of taking control. You will have an automatic control in the relationship with a younger man despite your personality types.
Though all the above reasons sound awesome and may push you towards dating a younger guy. You should also consider the downsides of dating a younger man before you get into a relationship with them. Here are a few downsides of dating a younger man:
He might want different things from life
Do you remember how you wanted different things at different stages of your life? If you are dating someone considerably younger than you, then he might be at another stage of life where his priorities are different from yours. You might really like each other but you can move forward if both of you want different things from life.
May not be willing to commit soon
If he is much younger than you, then, he might not be in any rush to commit for a long term companionship. Hence, it is better if you guys talk about how ready both of you are for a long-term commitment in the early stages of the relationship.
At the end of the day, love is love, doesn’t really matter if the man is younger or older, if you truly love each other and are willing to work in the relationship age shouldn’t be a barrier.
