6 Pros and Cons of dating a younger man



For a woman, dating a younger man is like a long-awaited validation. It’s a proof that she still has it, she’s still beautiful, energetic, and fresh enough to keep up with a partner that’s a bit or a lot younger than her.

And while people usually tend to fall in love or develop interest towards people of similar age, that has not always been the case.

In fact, throughout the years, society accepted that an older man dates a younger woman without much problem while the other way around was always frowned upon.

Well, this should not be the case anymore as women nowadays are free to date whoever they want and by that, we also mean much younger men. They are free to choose their own path which shouldn’t be guided by society norms any longer.

That said this doesn’t mean that dating a younger man comes without issues. This is why, in this article, we will be talking about some pros and cons of dating younger men. Keep reading!


1. Feeling fresh

Probably one of the very best parts when it comes to a woman dating a younger man is that this relationship makes her feel fresh once again. And by fresh we mean capable of things that she thought were only possible ten years ago. Regardless if it’s traveling, having fun, drinking, dancing, or even having sex, this newly-found feeling will make a woman want to continue down this path.

2. Feeling carefree

With a younger man also comes some sort of relief which can only be translated as feeling carefree for the first time in years. A young partner will definitely make his significant other leave all those cares at home, hidden deep inside a closet and feel amazing once more. After all, what good is such a relationship if it doesn’t make the woman grow new wings and fly? Yes, all of those problems will still be there when you go home, but at least you can enjoy forgetting them for the time being and while you’re with your younger half.

3. A lack of “history”

Just think about it. A younger man most probably doesn’t have so much dating history going on when you meet him. He will not have had previous marriages and children to worry about, which means more time for the two of you without anyone interfering. No ex-wifes, no ghosts to haunt him, no kids to look after (not that this would be a bad thing, we love kids), and no responsibilities to attend to. All in all, this could mean a definite feeling of freedom that will certainly help you, as the older half, deal with life a lot easier and enjoy the little things once more.


4. Different principles

Usually, the different principles that the partners have can be a big problem. You might think that this is because of the age difference, which is true, but it’s not always the case. Still, if you find yourself thinking completely different than your younger partner, that’s probably your signal to get out. Don’t stay in a relationship just because of the fun parts if you feel like you are not compatible with that man.

5. Different goals

With different principles come different goals and dreams, especially in the long run. You may not want a new marriage, but he may do. You may not want any more kids, but he may want some because he’s young and ambitious. Your careers might be on different levels because he may be inexperienced and not that financially-stable, while you may be a lot more advanced in this part of your life. This could mean trouble for your relationship, fights, and eventually, a breakup.

6. Lack of experience

Also, a lack of experience from his part might prove to be the nail in the coffin for such a relationship. It could happen in bed, professionally, or simply when it comes to the interactions between you two. He may not know how to handle various situations when you’re in dire need of a man’s helping hand. You may not be entirely satisfied with his behavior in the bedroom or even in society. Such a situation is difficult to handle indeed and if it doesn’t get solved quickly, it may just be the end.
