Dating someone 12 years older
We have been together over 2 years and are getting serious.
He told me he needs to work on and get over his concern about what his friends and family will think of our age difference when we meet so we can build a life together.
Rather than asking him or her such questions directly, lay low and gather your information over time.
If you answer these questions honestly, you’ll have gobs of good information as you try to determine whether a long-term relationship with the older individual could work well.
In addition, think about everyone with whom your prospective partner socializes. The most harmonious relationships involve a fairly seamless overlap of social circles.
But I've been watching and compiled a list of DOs and DON' Ts from Jess's experience dating the sophisticated Dermot Mulroney as Fancypants, who's a whopping twelve years older.
Or, you know, some version of whining about your age. With age (often) comes maturity and chivalry—take advantage!
Cece even tells Jess as she's first considering dating Russell (the one and only Fancypants) that "he intimidates you because you wouldn't have to take care of him, he'd take care of you."DON' T make your man feel older than he actually is (or date yourself).
Russell confesses he hasn't dated since 1989 and Jess replies, "That was the year I learned to use the toaster by myself." Not so hot.
