Dating much older man
Instead, find someone your own age who’s even hotter.
Attention from an older man might feel flattering, but do your future self a solid and ask: Why isn’t this guy interested in people his own age? John Waters has said, “If you go home with somebody, and they don’t have books, don’t fuck ‘em!
And, not all young women date older men because they want a sugar daddy. By established, I mean his career is solid, he has a 401K and he probably owns a home.
Plenty of women (ahem, Thalia) have their own money — yet, they fall in love and marry a man that’s twice their age. This has nothing to do with money and everything to do with security, which is a quality that many women need and want in a partner.
For most of us, in dating those things kind of go out the window, but then people tend to pair off with partners at about the same attractiveness level that they occupy. The pretense of finding someone who can be a partner and equal disappears; women both young and old get to see that all that really matters is how you look in a bikini.
Meanwhile, women also watch their romantic options shrink as they age—a similar amount of money or power on their part usually doesn’t bring all the boys to the yard in quite the same way. It’s not necessarily wrong - many successful relationships have had large age differences, so you can’t really insist on that.
