Benefits of dating me
I don’t necessarily think that he wanted to hang exclusively with me all the time, but I think he felt insecure that I’d meet other guys when I went out with friends.One thing I’m incredibly grateful for is not having to deal with jealousy in my current relationship.I’m often asked how we met—and not in a giddy kind of way (it’s more like concern).
While you figure out the math, let me be clear that I’ve met several other women in their early- to mid-20s who also prefer to date from a much older pool for various reasons.And while that may be true for some, a 2010 study by the University of Dundee in Scotland found that as women become more financially independent, their taste may skew toward older (and better-looking) men. As a woman becomes more confident in her own career and finances, she seeks a partner who matches that, which often is not a 25-year-old guy.To be clear, my boyfriend isn’t rich, but he’s picked up one important habit over the years: investing.Sure, it occasionally happens, but my boyfriend understands that being in a codependent relationship leads to all sorts of trouble and that spending time apart sometimes is key.Getting awkward questions (wait, do you know each other?! I find it difficult to explain to people how my relationship came to be.
