In both cases, this may be due to the allure of the possibilities that come with mixing ages, interests and backgrounds.
Many women who have reached an above-average level of success in their careers grew up in a time when there weren’t that many women in positions of great leadership or authority.
If he likes to dominate here, let him show you how he can cherish and please you.
But mix it up – you don’t always have to be in control in this arena, and he may relish the chance to show off his skills in satisfying you, but sometimes you can take the lead and blow his mind.
If you are tired of dating in your own age pool because maybe those women are immature, or not ready to commit to something more than casual come and go relationships, honor the woman you are with by verbalizing what she means to you and letting her know without question what you bring to the table.
Eventually, you both can come up with joint interests and goals as a partnership, and the age question will melt away into a distant memory.
You would not be spending time pursuing older women if you felt threatened or were experiencing reverse age-stereotyping.
Remember that no matter their success in the outside world, most every woman, and person, wishes to feel adored and appreciated.
Because many women work full-time and raise families it enables men who have grown up with this norm to feel less threatened by female success.Through the years many have watched, or already understood their mothers and sisters to have a powerful say in how they regard women.Though a gender gap most certainly remains, there are many, many more women in positions of leadership, who do not back down from challenges, who compete in many of the same fields as men, and who work side by side with men.To have achieved the success you have means you’ve spent a lot of time in this role and it can become intrinsic, and a natural part of who you are.
For someone who may have had less exposure to women in positions of authority, dating you in your “career hat” can be intense.Demonstrate your interest by planning creative dates and offering compelling and interesting conversation.
