Be ready to do the “unexpected date,” go to the novel location, and experience the unknown. Be willing to let go of what you know, and enter the new. It sounds empowering, and women are loving the comparison. The only thing a secure established woman controls, is her own life. As an older woman, you’ve had the added years of self-reflection to have learned your truth, and live authentically. Resist the temptation to mold him into the rigid dating versions of the past. By assisting each other and working together, you can create the version of dating/relationship that works best for both of you. In evolving partnership models, two people function as one unit, with equal input and joint control. From my years of research, this type of partnership is where the real magic happens. He’s probably had more sex than you have While you might think you’re the one with all the experience, here’s where the tables often turn.
You’ve become less reactive (what men call “crazy”), taking on life with a greater perspective while taking yourself less seriously. Just because he’s young, doesn’t mean he’s sexually naïve. Younger generations have grown up with a more open attitude toward sexuality. The oldest man I’ve ever dated was still 12 years younger than myself. But at 80, I probably won’t feel like writing about it.
If you’re thinking about dating a younger man, congratulations.
Far too many centuries have limited women’s choices.
