It was difficult for us to make plans because we had different schedules, and, to make matters worse, his daughter would get sick (or whatever) when we had plans.
Rarely do you hear about men who specifically want to sleep with women 15 years older than them as more than just a passing Mrs. They have experience that is more valuable than anything.
The problem is, you think that person has to be older than you. Just as chronological age doesn’t always “cure” one of immaturity, a man can be all of these things and still be 24, 28, 30 (depending on what you consider young). You’ve told yourself you don’t really want a younger man. Regardless of how sexually permissive and progressive we think we are, there’s still a bit of eyebrow raising when a woman dates younger. And when I tell people that (if they ask or if it comes up), I either get a lilting “Reaalllly” or a “You go girl!
When I was 36, I had a brief, wonderful affair with a lovely 24-year-old entrepreneur I met on an airplane.
A common rule of thumb when it comes to dating is that it’s OK to be interested in someone who is half your age, plus seven years.
However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.
