Older men have for a while now been dating younger women and since people have gotten used to it, it barely raises an eyebrow. This is because the older man sees the fact that the younger woman does not have any baggage and this is regards to husbands who still exist in the younger woman’s life together with children. But whatever the case, dating a younger woman does not always mean that you will sail through the relationship which is why a number of guidelines should be followed for the whole dating relationship to run on smoothly.
- You should be open about your past
Let the younger woman know the divorce or divorces you have been in and the number of kids you have. This does not mean that you are insane; the younger woman will only appreciate the fact that you told her and acknowledge that no one is perfect.
- You should understand
This is in regards to her feelings. You should not view her as young which is why you do not quite respect her views on life and decisions. She is also a human being, which is why you should respect and look out for her feelings.
- You should establish boundaries
Since you are obviously at different stages in life, you should be clear with her as to where the relationship stands. You may be seeing it as a fling while she is looking towards being your next wife! Having a talk with her and establishing boundaries in regards to where the relationship stands is important.
