Dating a man 8 years older
One woman, who is married to a man 14 years younger, said the only time she feels threatened by her age is when she looks in the mirror.But that fear has forced her to come up with her own solution to the issue. ’ Your answer could be, ‘I’m going to get a facelift.’ My answer is, ‘I’m going to be such a beautiful person inside that it’s going to shine through to the outside,'” she told the magazine.When it comes to the subject of love we always hope that there are no real significant barriers to its success.In our hearts, if not in our heads, we’re convinced that love will always trump practical concerns such as money, social class, race and even gender. And what about age as it relates to older women involved with younger men?When the roles are reversed and an older man dates a younger woman, the men are often congratulated and revered.
Culturally, the older woman/younger man dynamic is perceived as an oddity, or a fluke.
Yeah, we might also have emotional baggage, but the more time we've had to date around, the more we know what we like and (hopefully) how to avoid making the same mistakes we made previously.
