Psychology of dating an older man

Persistence also takes confidence—my boyfriend extended three invitations before I finally agreed to get coffee with him.

As Aaliyah once said, “If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.” Older men know this. I won’t lie: It can be annoying at times dating someone who has “been there/done that,” but it can also be helpful when your partner can use his experiences to guide you.

And continued to call when he said he would and replied to messages fairly quickly.

In general, dating games are rather boring to a guy who’s probably had his fair share.

(Spoiler alert: I wasn’t.) Introducing him to your family won’t be easy.

I was dead nervous to reveal my boyfriend’s age to my parents, so much so that I stalled introducing them for six months.

I get the impression that people outside my inner circle wonder if I’m lying and that maybe he picked me up at a hotel bar or something cliché like that.

Other inquire whether I was purposely seeking an older man when I met him.

He just didn’t get that and wanted to be around every second.

I don’t necessarily think that he wanted to hang exclusively with me all the time, but I think he felt insecure that I’d meet other guys when I went out with friends.

To be clear, my boyfriend isn’t rich, but he’s picked up one important habit over the years: investing.
