reasons why you should date older men..

1. They’re Secure
Unlike guys in their 20s, men in
their 30s and above have an
established sense of who they are in
this world and what they’re doing
with their lives. This makes them
much more relaxed and less eager to
impress (which is never an
impressive quality) than their
younger counterparts.
2. Money
They tend to have more of it than
the guys your own age. Go figure.
3. Chivalry

As annoying as it can be to have
some man hold the door open for
you every time you enter a building,
it’s a gesture of feminine
appreciation that has more or less
evaporated amongst the younger
generation due to progressive
ideologies (which, don’t get me
wrong, are a good thing overall).
4. No Roommates
It’s unlikely that your older man will
share his home with a couple of
unruly slobs he calls his best
5. Hanging Out With
Their Friends Is More
You have to do it a lot less
frequently, as the older one gets,
the less one spends on friend time.
Also, it will take place in much more
pleasant venues, like a nice
restaurant instead of a filthy dive
bar (but don’t completely forsake
the filthy dive bars).
6. They’ve Had More
Relationships To
Learn From
These guys know how to behave in a
relationship because they’ve done it
before with a variety of women,
learning all the ups and downs
through a variety of dating
7. They Won’t Take
You For Granted
You’re young and beautiful, and he’s
technically out of your league.
8. They’re Better At
With more time to perfect their
technique (and less sheer relief at
the fact that they’re getting laid at
all), these men know where to touch,
and for how long.
9. They Get It
Girls age at a rate much faster than
their male counterparts. Things that
men in their 20s can never
understand, older men can
articulate in one, wisdom-filled
10. Patience
Understanding the meaning of
delayed gratification comes with
years of hard work to attain the
position in life you’ve been after.
Guys just coming out of academia or
at their very first grown-up job may
not get this (unless they’ve had a
tough life, in which case they’re
basically an “older man”).
11. Your Dates
Younger men will take you to a low
quality, over priced restaurant if
they want to impress you. Older men
will take you somewhere where
food’s the main focus. Or maybe
even to Europe.
12. They Know What
They Like
An admirable quality in anybody,
this assures that when you’re with
your older man, you will settle for
nothing other than the best.
13. They’re Assertive
via tumblr
And they’re not afraid to ask for the
best if they don’t get it the first
14. They Command
They do this in a way that a fresh-
faced 20-something cannot, since
he’s too busy trying to look like an
adult (in an ill-fitting suit) to
properly act like one.
15. They Can Engage
With Your Parents
As long as such a man is not too
old, parents will appreciate his
ability to converse knowledgably on
subject matter on which younger
men lack understanding. They also
may appreciate his stability.
16. Their Apartments
Are Nicer Than Yours
If you’re in someplace like NYC, you
understand how big of a draw this is
coming from your cramped, Bushwick
abode. Also, this probably makes the
guy more conveniently located to
wherever you go for work/play.
17. They Can Provide
When you think you’ve got serious
problems with pulling your life
together, the older man is there to
tell you not to worry, it takes lots of
time and effort to succeed. You’re
young and doing what you can for
the time being. What a relief.
