Although, I call J "Kid" in this super-cute, ironic way. Whether that's a mature twenty-something, an immature thirty-something, or a quirky lady living with three dudes like Jess.Or a 24-year-old girl from New Jersey who happens to blog about her relationship. DON' T use childhood/pop culture references that he will never get.But, seriously, if they ever do a reunion tour J is SO coming with me. Do you have any tips for dating someone older than you? DO treat the relationship the same as you would with a guy your own age. And by that, I don’t mean “you won’t ever have financial trouble,” rather, when you do have issues, he’ll probably be stable enough from maturity and that he won’t freak out.
Russell confesses he hasn't dated since 1989 and Jess replies, "That was the year I learned to use the toaster by myself." Not so hot.Considering the fact that he teases me mercilessly about my abundance of gray hair, I think it’s about time I get to talk up my great youth.All kidding aside, there are some wonderful things about being married to a man who is more than a couple years older than you (let’s not forget that there is an assumption being made that along with age, a certain level of maturity has been reached!And, of course, I’m only sharing from my limited experience. Getting older is as easy as puddin’ pie because in your circle?
That said; the positives of marrying someone older have been rapidly lost in a world where “young love” is often touted as the best kind. You’ll always be the “young one.”After all, she’s old, too.Why do woman, and indeed young men, find themselves attracted to older men?
