The prospect of dating an older woman can seem tantalizing. She’s more stable, more mature, and generally has less “drama” in her life. But just because it seems like a good idea at first blush doesn’t make it so, you know? Dig a little deeper and you’ll see that a relationship with an older woman is fraught with peril. Don’t believe it? Well check out this list of seven reasons not to date an older woman if you need a little more convincing!
Generation gap. Tired of her overplayed Christopher Cross album and all you want to hear is some T.I.? Is she always going to wear that leopard-skin pill-box hat? Older women may listen to music not timely familiar to you, dress awkwardly from another dimension and swing an entirely different jig. But that’s what you get when you cross a younger breed with an older one. She calls a couch a “Davenport,” whatever the hell that means, and to her Robert Redford is a young, rising star. To you, these things exist sometime in Earth’s sepia-toned past.
Entertainment. She likes to have a good time, of course, but your idea of what’s entertaining is going to differ wildly from hers. She may want to check “Lawrence Welk” re-runs, and that “Murder She Wrote” marathon is going to occupy most of her weekend. You, on the other like young guy stuff, like drinking, yelling, and video games. She was born well before “Pong” even existed, so “Call of Duty” probably isn’t on her radar, slick guy. Unless you like church picnics, you may want to look elsewhere for dates!
