Pros and cons of dating someone older
Your Energy It’s given that the guy you’re dating probably loves your energy, and that you energize him.
Dating an older man means that you won’t have to worry about him always wanting to stay out late clubbing or meeting his buddies at the bar.
You Have His Support A man who is twice your age is likely to be established in his career and be financially stable, but he can be a good person to lean on and go to for advice.
Plus, an older man has it together, so you can focus on keeping yourself together instead of being the only true adult in the relationship.
More so than you’re willing to reveal to your parents–let’s just put it that way.
Dating a man who is twice your age can mean that you learn quite a bit from him.
He knows his way around the bedroom, has figured out how to dress well and furnish his home with bath towels, and he can introduce you to movies, music and books you might never have heard of.

The Cons As you’ve probably already guessed (or experienced for yourself), dating someone, let’s say, 12 years your senior can elicit some raised eyebrows from friends and family–and it’s never pleasant when the closest people in your life don’t approve of the one you love.
