I have to admit it’s comforting to be in a serious relationship with someone who’s somewhat financially responsible (read: less impulsive).From what I’ve gathered, a man in his 20s is more likely to blow his cash on frivolous things, while men in their 30s and are likely to save money for the future or for experiences, like a romantic vacation (wink, wink). “He texted me an hour after I texted him.” “What should I text him back? I can still remember the days when I’d utter those words and essentially have an anxiety attack every time my phone buzzed and it was a guy my own age I’d been casually seeing.ating someone who is not from your college or someone working in the real world can be a cool experience.

One thing I’m incredibly grateful for is not having to deal with jealousy in my current relationship.
Many girls dream, or at least are fine with the idea, of dating an older guy. If faced with the option of dating someone older, what is, — five years, ten years, how many years?
Here are some pros and cons of dating someone older.
I’m often asked how we met—and not in a giddy kind of way (it’s more like concern).
People are shocked when I respond “mutual friends.” How could a girl in her early 20s be friends with people in their late 30s?
As Aaliyah once said, “If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.” Older men know this. I won’t lie: It can be annoying at times dating someone who has “been there/done that,” but it can also be helpful when your partner can use his experiences to guide you.
