They're a lot of pros and cons to dating an older guy, they have smouldering grey hairs among they're normal hair, they have so many stories to tell and lessons they've learned, but they can also be really boring and misunderstanding.
Older guys have gone through the phase of being an absolute lad, and therefore care more about how they treat women. Also, because of the age difference, and trust me it doesn't matter if you're the most independent person in the world, they will take extra care of you.
Con - Arrogance Obviously, they have spent more time on this earth than we have. The subject matter being anything from the best beer to your GOT theories. Advertisement Pro - More Experience This can be a good thing if the guy isn't a know-it-all, it's pretty cool to have this guy tell you about all the craic he's had over the past few years. It kind of makes you think if he could go through that amount of close to death experiences than you'll be just fine.
Con - Energy Levels You might not think five or six years in the difference would affect his energy levels that much, but it actually does. At times you'll literally feel like your on speed compared to him.
This is obviously not his fault but it's still annoying when you want to go out and do something active and they just want to sit in and watch Netflix. Advertisement Pro - More Independent They don't have to answer to anybody, they're their own man.
This one of the great things about older guys is that they don't need Mammying, they generally know how to cook and keep themselves clean.
These are the little things you might not think are important until you've moved onto a guy your own age who brings his washing home and calls his Mam 9 times a day. Con - They've Done It Already This is a really annoying con, it seems like he's been and done everything dating wise, so it's hard to do anything new with this guy.
Plus anything that is new, is generally not for his age group, and therefore he can be uninterested. Advertisement Pro - They Tend To Be More Financially Secure They're perfectly aware that you're a student and not on the best salary, so the majority of the time they insist on paying for everything. Personally, I believe in taking turns in buying rounds, or getting the tickets you get the snacks.
But if they have a decent job they actually feel better paying for everything. His shit is everywhere. More than likely if he feels that it's a "younger persons thing" he won't concern himself with it, plus he probably has adult stuff to worry about. But it's because of this he certainly knows where everything goes and what everything does. There's no doubt that older have the suss when it comes to your puss which will leave you forgetting about the all cons.
Older guys generally have enough shit going on in their lives which makes game playing uninteresting to them. This is a huge relief to womankind as most of the time we feel like we're being emotionally thrown about the place. An older guy will always let you know where you stand.
