They insist how happy there are - and have been doing so for years - but the older woman/younger man combination has always been viewed askance. Back in the 1970s the press went wild when the German beauty Silvia Sommerlath married Carl-Gustav, King of Sweden.The issue was not so much the new queen’s bourgeois background as the fact that she had the audacity to be three years older than her blue-blooded fiancé.That’s a shame, because tolerance is an important fundamental element of a relationship.
Or, you know, some version of whining about your age. With age (often) comes maturity and chivalry—take advantage!
Cece even tells Jess as she's first considering dating Russell (the one and only Fancypants) that "he intimidates you because you wouldn't have to take care of him, he'd take care of you."DON' T make your man feel older than he actually is (or date yourself).
We have been together over 2 years and are getting serious. Guys would you date a woman considerably taller than you?
He told me he needs to work on and get over his concern about what his friends and family will think of our age difference when we meet so we can build a life together. Guys would you date a woman that is between 6 feet and 7 feet?
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.
DO be lovey dovey, but DON' T nickname him something based on his age (Fancypants is cool, though).
During one scene, Nick (who else has a major crush on him??
) starts talking to a girl in college who, he realizes, "doesn't know what is." For your date with an older gent: as cool as it is, not everyone needs to know that you were part of an NSYNC fan club (cough cough).
Ladies Could Date A Guy Shorter Then You Guys Could You Date A Woman Taller Then You?
Susan Sarandon, Joan Collins and Gwyneth Paltrow all have a younger man as their partner.
I older men are just looking for a good time or notch on their belt. Whether that's a mature twenty-something, an immature thirty-something, or a quirky lady living with three dudes like Jess.
