We see so many celebrity couples with huge age gaps. Look at Beyoncé and Jay Z, they have a 12 year age difference and they are still going strong with the recent addition of two little babies into their clan. So what makes dating someone older than you better?
Do people really get better with age? Read on to find out the truth about dating an older person!
1.They are wiser than you.
They know what they are doing with their life and can give you advice on just about anything because they have already been there and done that.
2.They have more emotional stability.
Since your significant other has experienced more in life than you have, they have the mental and emotional stability to face any kind of situation.
They probably have a steady job and have picked up the habits of how to correctly spend and save money. So you never have to worry about how to handle money.
Your significant other may be more experienced with relationships as well, so you can expect flowers and chocolates galore.
5.They realize that age is just a number.
Every time your birthday rolls around and you refuse to accept the fact that you are one year older now, they always have your back and show you that it isn’t that bad on the other side.
6.Taste in music.
Let’s just say that you will never agree on what music to play during long car rides.
You would have watched the same movies during different times in your lives and you love rewatching them together.
That moment when you realize you were in elementary school when your partner was in college.
9.They get along well with your older siblings.
If your partner is around the same age as your older siblings, chances are that they will have a lot more in common. They might even like the same music.
When you are out and about, people immediately question your relationship.
11.The ‘YOU’RE SO OLD’ comments.
When your partner complains about some ache or pain and you automatically pass the ‘so old’ comment.
12.And their comebacks about the ‘YOUTH’ of today.
They will for sure pass comments about you being immature or acting like a kid when you are feeling whiny as well.
13.You have a deep connection.
You may not be close in age but you are close to the heart.
14. Always learning.
You are always learning new things about your partner and their past life. Sometimes it may seem as if they have lived a whole eternity before you.
15.They don’t want to party.
They are not about that wild party life. They like to take things a little more chill, t.v and take out is their idea of a perfect night in.
16.Ready to commit.
They are ready to commit to you for life. They have been waiting a long time to meet that one special person and are willing to make it last.
17.The older ex.
Get ready to face the scary older ex, but don’t let them ruin your relationship. Show them who’s boss.
18.No mutual friends.
Since you both are basically from different eras you will definitely not have the same friends circle. Your friends might not even get along.
19.They are stubborn.
Sometimes your partner will be very adamant about certain things just because they are older.
20.They are dating you because you are young.
Sometimes they like to date younger people just because they are more immature and can easily be manipulated.
21.They have more control.
The older partner will sometimes get the idea that they are in control of the whole relationship and do not realize that it takes two to tango.
22.Will it last?
Everybody asks you the same thing when you are dating. If there is a true connection it most surely will.
23.Sometimes you wonder if they are actually older than you.
When they get super excited about something and behave like a kid in a candy store you actually wonder if they have been lying to you about their age this whole time.
24.You both are kids.
Then you realize that you both are kids at heart.
25.They can do stuff that you can’t.
When you go to the bar and the bouncer asks you for your id and not theirs.
26.Day to day struggles.
The person you are dating may not understand or realize the day to day struggles that you have since their life is much different than yours. When you are separated by more than a decade a lot of different feelings and emotions may not be understanding.
27.No jealousy or B.S.
When you are dating a more mature person the silly things like jealousy are pushed to the side and the main focus is on you and your relationship. They make you feel more grounded.
At the end of the day we all want to be loved and we all want someone to love. So even if you and your partner are separated by age, you are united by love.
So would you date someone older than you?
