There simply aren’t many half-decent men out there.I don’t know why, but my friends and I suspect that most older men don’t come out of a relationship unless there is another woman waiting in the wings.Woman D: I'm now married to a man who is five years older than me so I suppose patterns would say I'm attracted to men older than me.However, after the relationship with the significantly older man ended I vowed to only date close to my age again.I made a very stupid mistake when I first started internet dating. It was a really stupid thing to do, so now I’m much more careful.
My friend (who was my age and in high school with me) worked at a ski resort near us. He's always been attracted to a person's personality. He actually thought I was older than I am, and both his wives were close to him in age.
Woman A: Like most 18-year-olds, I did not have much relationship experience, so it was easier for him to get away with things I would not have tolerated had I had a better sense of what a healthy relationship should feel like. We began dating when I was on winter break during my freshman year in college.
Woman B: It has very little impact, although it does lead to some amusing jokes at times. Because we worked together we were able to spend time together and I would come home from school on the weekends.
They seemed to get on well via email, but whenever it came to meeting up, there was always a problem.
I think it felt good for him that an 18-year-old was choosing to spend time with him.
