Benefits of dating a guy 10 years older
DO be lovey dovey, but DON' T nickname him something based on his age (Fancypants is cool, though).
Does any man really like to be called your Sexy Silver Fox?
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).
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.
It’s easy to learn things from younger partners as well as older ones.
Younger people can be less jaded and cynical, still in the process of discovering the world and themselves and how those two things might work together, That often translates as boundless enthusiasm for new things, different things, silly and fun things – and they’ll drag you along for the ride, no pun intended. But I've been watching and compiled a list of DOs and DON' Ts from Jess's experience dating the sophisticated Dermot Mulroney as Fancypants, who's a whopping twelve years older.Or, you know, some version of whining about your age. With age (often) comes maturity and chivalry—take advantage!One wise friend advises me that ‘an upside of dating someone younger is that they may feel less pressure (internal or external) to "settle down", so they won't push the relationship towards a commitment too soon.On the other hand, particularly if you are their first serious partner, they may be swept up in "first love" and want that fairytale happy ending,' so you may need to be the one to put the brakes on if that’s not really what you want or where you see things going.
