They got engaged last week and plan to marry in 6 months.

You don’t have to hit up a nightclub every weekend, but you definitely don’t want to spend too many weekends being the coupled up couch potatoes.

Joking from time to time is cool, but don’t get too comfortable trying to blame certain issues on his age.

Sometimes you just have to accept that you might be messing with a party pooper, and from there you will have to determine if his lack of spontaneity is enough to make you leave because you feel you’re being held back.

But for the most part, suggesting a range of fun things that don’t become repetitive could get him out of his set ways slowly but surely. Like I said, if you allow it, things can get pretty dull.

It has its perks and it has its bummer moments, but I think dating up in age is something that women should do at least once in life, even if it doesn’t turn into something serious.

Dating an older man can teach you a lot, especially about yourself (and what you do and don’t want in a partner), but it’s not always the easiest of relationships. Just in case you’re thinking of getting serious with a fella quite a few years older or even decades older than you, here are a few things you might want to keep in mind before you get it crackin’.

Depending on how old the man you’re seeing is, he might have certain goals he’s trying to finish accomplishing.

I know a woman who dates an older man, and he jumps from profession to profession while trying to make a career in music take off.

With all that drive comes a lot of time we don’t get to share together.
