Challenges with dating an older man
As an 18-year-old, I thought they were close-minded.
Did/does it impact sex at all, for better or for worse? This was one of the many ways the relationship was emotionally abusive — sex was always ostensibly on the table, but no matter how much I threw myself at him, I was always rejected. The fact that this man didn't want to have sex with me in spite of claiming to love me, in spite of the fact that men allegedly always want sex, in spite of the fact that they allegedly especially want sex with much younger women — all of this made the continual rejection especially painful. We have different tastes sexually — I'm more adventurous — but that has nothing to do with age.
Sometimes, this means less attention for you and almost always means that you and bew cannot be together every waking moment.
If you want to make the relationship work, you have to be understanding of his time.
Also, I wish this article had included one or two precautions about checking for red flag...
My friend (who was my age and in high school with me) worked at a ski resort near us. He's always been attracted to a person's personality. He actually thought I was older than I am, and both his wives were close to him in age.
Woman B: I rented a flat in the backyard of his then-girlfriend. But I knew he was probably 10 years older than me and that was a little bit of the attraction, because I thought that he would be older and more settled with none of the bullshit that you have in your 20s.
Woman A: I was working in retail at the time, and he was a customer. He looks younger than he is and is in very good shape.

So, you just started dating an older man for the first time but worry that you're ill-equipped for what the relationship will entail. Because you're already dating, it's clear that you're awesome and will be just fine, despite your age difference.
