I think it felt good for him that an 18-year-old was choosing to spend time with him.
Because he had a reluctance to grow up, he wanted to stay young in as many ways as possible.
The following dos and don’ts should give you a better idea how to manage your position in your May-December relationship to your best advantage. One of the main reasons that she’s with you, and not with some stud of her own age, is that younger guys often don’t hit the emotional mark.
Woman A: The longest lasting of these relationships started when I was 18 and he was 40. However, we didn't start dating until I was 18 and he was 36. They split up around 2009 and I didn't hear from him for 18 months. Do you think your age was part of the attraction for him?Guys mature emotionally at a much slower rate than women and can easily get into their thirties with the emotional intelligence of a five-year-old. Show her that your maturity ensures that a relationship with you is a true emotional partnership, not a one-way street to toy town! You don’t get to your later years without learning a thing or two.This doesn’t mean that you have to talk at length about quantum physics or sub-Saharan politics. Woman B: Twenty-seven and he recently turned 42 (we're still together). We discovered we had a lot of interests in common and became good friends. Most of the men I dated more casually at the time were in their 30s. It also made me feel special — this man seemed so much more worldly than the men my age, and the fact that he was interested in me seemed too good to be true. Woman D: Originally I think I was flattered that somebody who had experienced so much of life was interested in me. Woman B: I rented a flat in the backyard of his then-girlfriend. But I knew he was probably 10 years older than me and that was a little bit of the attraction, because I thought that he would be older and more settled with none of the bullshit that you have in your 20s.
