It is important not to make assumptions based on someone’s marital status, instead judge each situation on its merits.
George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.
I’m not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn’t been fulfilling for me.
I started my media career at age 9 at a community TV station and my ambition level went up from there.
I still get the common response from my friends: “He’s too old for you! ” I’ve also had a few people in my life suggest that I do it because I am a "gold digger."So, the broad answer is this: To clarify, I’m not dating older men because I am a “gold digger.” It’s more important for me to pull my own weight and be financially stable.
I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:- They’re not ambitious enough, or they don't have a go-getter attitude.- They’re not financially stable.- They still want to date around.- They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.- They don’t have their sh*t together.
The only thing probably missing in my life is a partner, a published book and an owned property… To elaborate even further, I’m an only child, and growing up, I never had many close friends. I was teased and picked on a lot from the kids at school. I guess that’s where I began the attraction for the older man type, and it used to freak my mother out.
I never babysat the kids in my neighborhood once; I couldn’t relate to kids at all. I would crush on older guys when I was 13, but I really didn’t start actually dating an older guy until I was 26; he was 40.
I had a normal childhood, but I have been living in the “adult world” since I was a kid. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way.
But, it’s not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.
In fact, a Boston Globe report went a step further to chart Clooney’s age difference history with previous girlfriends, the average being 9.73 years.
You will need to be patient and over time trust will build as the painful past is replaced with healthier experiences in the here and now. Entanglement – while the emotional and physical separation may have happened often the logistics of a divorce and division of property and money can take much longer to resolve.
This can have practical implications in the development of a new relationship. Family ties – if there are children from the marriage you have to accept, whatever the age of the children and whether they live with their parent or not, that this match comes as a package.
