Or, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who are 25 years apart in age?
In their defense, I hardly grew up dating or crushing on men close to my age group. 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 always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences. I started my media career at age 9 at a community TV station and my ambition level went up from there.
George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.
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.
What about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were 16 years apart when they were married?
At the end of the day, I need to do what's best for me.
Here are a list of pros and cons to consider if you decide to date older: Whether it's in his career, knowledge acquired overtime, relationships or even in the bedroom, this man knows what he's doing and knows what he wants.
He's confident and can teach you a thing or two with his advice. This is great for me, since I am a whirlwind during the week and it balances me out.
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. 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.
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.
