Rules for dating a younger man
He's trying some new passion project every week and you have to be supportive of every single one. You have conversations with female acquaintences whose husbands are lawyers or doctors or entrepreneurs who are like "So what does he do? Hahahhaha do you know where the ladies' room is, great, thanks."5. And you wind up not being able to take that trip to Puerto Vallarta because he racked up way too many bar tabs last month.6. I know he has the energy of a crackhead on a log flume, but nightlife is for youngs.2. For example, generally, you try to avoid people with two first names or those who abbreviate the word probably as “probs.” But you never know; that one awful abbreviator could be your soulmate.So, I'm proposing this “8-year rule” in dating as an absolute.Differences in age preferences for mates can stem from evolutionary mating strategies and age preferences in sexual partners may vary cross culturally.There are also alternative social theories for age differences in relationships as well as suggested reasons for 'alternative' age-hypogamous relationships.Here are four problems you'll likely run into if you break the 8-year rule: I once went out with a woman who was under the impression that Lauryn Hill was made famous by being in “Sister Act 2.”Now, there are a few reactions you can have to this.
He wakes up fresh and glowy and you look like this.9.
The 8-year rule states that you shouldn't date anyone outside of an 8-year age range. I've dated (or tried to date) women who are older, younger and, if you'll believe it, exactly the same age as I am.
I am aware there are possibilities where two people can successfully date with an age gap of more than eight years. (Seriously, she was born on the same day and same year.
If that's not an easy conversation opener, I truly don't know what is.)But after all sorts of successes and failures with women, as time has gone on, I've found at least common failure: a massive age gap.
I'm, by no means, the most mature 30-year-old dude you're going to meet, and I'm not insinuating that all younger women are flighty or immature.But let's be fair: There's a reason we tend to date people who are closer in age.
