But now I'm head over heels for a 29 year-old. It's crazy, but right now, it just makes sense. While the "cougar" the older woman who pursues significantly younger men is at least partly an overhyped media creation, there's some evidence that for one age group in particular, this is a real emerging trend. More than a few women in their late 20s to mid 30s who generally dated older men are now switching to going out with younger guys.
Don't Be the Worst: How to Date Outside Your Age Range | GQ
If you're out to eat, don't pick at your food to give the impression that you, a beautiful woman, do not eat. And in terms of compliments, it is always important to know that compliments on your appearance are far less valuable than compliments regarding your true self. If you ever feel inclined to use the words "I love you" strung together in that order , make sure you mean it with your entire mind, body and soul. If he cheats on you, it was never a problem with you, it happened because of his own insecurities and inner weakness. But, in the rare case that it is true love which I hope it really is , after he has proven UNDYING loyalty to you, let yourself fall into beautiful, crazy, insane love. Be sappy, be cheesy, be all kinds of head over heels. And, if it all ends in flames, like it sadly does sometimes, please, please, PLEASE have the courage to pick up the pieces and heal yourself.
Large age gaps in a relationship: our readers respond
I was born in and have two older siblings. So far, so normal. Except for the fact that being born in — the same year the Titanic went down — my father was old enough to be my great-grandfather.
I was always that girl who thought it was odd for women to date men more than 5 years older than her. Even though I have an aunt who got married at 16 to my uncle who is eleven years older than her, I just thought it was gross. Not to mention a little creepy. I knew that I would never date someone that much older than me. I mean really.
