I've dated many different men in the city. From thirty-something finance gurus to early twenties musicians, I've given them all a chance. I had always assumed that dating older men would equal more maturity. But, I was wrong. Even if a guy is a few years your senior, he may still behave like a frat boy. I’ve learned that maturity is a personal accomplishment that each man will achieve at a different rate than his buddy on the next barstool. Dating older men who are well into their career, own their Upper East Side one bedroom, and vacation in the Hamptons, may not be as mature and put together as you had dreamed. Even this “perfect on paper” guy may drive you crazy with his dating games, drunken antics with his bros, or lack of communication skills. To find the right guy who is just as mature as your lovely self, be open to dating many different men without judging them on their age alone. If you give that younger guy a chance, he may surprise you. What are your thoughts on age differences when dating?
