I was thinking the other day how we are in 2017 and it still is kind of considered a taboo to date a man a few years younger than you. Some women no matter how nice the guy is, won’t give him a chance because he maybe a few years younger than them. You start hearing things like, ‘But he is too young to settle down, he’s too immature’ but the reality is even a grown 35 year old man can be just as immature and petty with their Peter Pan complex! However, we have successful relationships to name a few; like Eva Mendes who is six years older than the gorgeous Ryan Gosling, Shakira ten years older than her ballin’ soccer player,Brigitte Macron, the current French President’s older wife and let’s please not forget sexy Hugh Jackman who is 48 and his wife Deborra is 61. All these women are powerful, stunning and have an intelligent younger man by their side so it seems age is nothing but a number.
Here are my four reasons to why you should consider a younger man;
– Always up for fun and open minded:
I don’t know if it is the age or personality but guys in their mid 20’s are always excited to try new things and experience new places. They can go out dancing with you till the sun comes up, wake up bright and early to go running with you, their energy is inspiring. They are also not set in their ways- which can get so boring. Most are happy to try that new restaurant you’ve been talking about all week and go to Paris on the weekend spontaneously because they aren’t worried about the lack of sleep or a possible hangover.
– So loving/emotionally available
A few older men can go on and on about how that bitch once upon a time broke their heart ten hundred years ago so they will never buy flowers for another girl ever again. So now you are being punished and settling for a glass of house wine because he is still crying about his ex who dumped him in college because he got fat or something. Usually, younger guys don’t have that emotional baggage so they treat you like the princess that you are and happy to open up their heart to you! Which is so important.
Whether it is technology, their career or art; younger guys can be so passionate and optimistic about things and if you have a black soul like me then it can be so infectious to be surrounded by such positive energy. They can even teach you how to kick back and relax and to enjoy life for a second-
– Amazing body
Shallow but true- being a fitness bunny myself I sure can appreciate a man who takes care of himself. Some guys in their 30’s just start letting themselves go and all that constant drinking in the evenings contribute to their beer belly- so not cute. I feel it is a luxury these days for a man to have nice abs- he doesn’t have to be Britain’s next top model but a guy who treats his body well is always attractive. I am always bumping into younger male models who are only a year or two younger than me and I am super impressed by their physique because it’s like ‘wow…are you real though?’ 🙂
I don’t have anything against older men, in fact I wouldn’t mind myself a George Clooney- sophisticated, worldly and classy but if you meet a man with all those qualities and he is a few years younger than you, it would be stupid, immature even to let him go.
