In most of my life I was in a relationship with an older guy than myself but recently I have discovered that as I am growing older, I am seeing the benefit of dating a younger person. The key difference is that a younger guy is more flexible and not opinionated.
Older people get stuck in their views and do not change or are unwilling to change or compromise. Sometimes it feels like I am their “bitch” and not a partner. I also think that it is not necessarily the physical aspect of getting older that is less attractive, rather I think that the emotional and mental state is the biggest stumbling block to a successful relationship.
The lack of experience is not a big issue with a younger person as long as he is willing to learn and grow. Recently I had a chance to go out with someone a few years younger than I and I liked it.
