A while ago I read the most enlightening article on dating Scandinavians.
According to the author, I’m meant to get drunk, not expect the guy to pay the bill, not expect him to flirt with me or ask me out, and be okay with him being rather impolite, introverted and extremely slow on the uptake.
Also remember that he will have the same dilemma with any references you make – they may make him feel old and distant from you.
As a rule, the older you are the more health problems you get.
It’s a bit immature Firstly, I think that if a guy hasn’t got enough courage to meet you sober, then he’s not worth meeting.
Just as his health will possibly deteriorate, your older man’s energy levels will also drop over time.
Most importantly talk everything through; these aren’t issues that are just going to go away.
Meeting someone later in life means they’re more likely to have become set in their ways.
But once I’ve stuck that out, I’m expected to have a great partner in life.
If I had known that’s what I was in for, I wouldn’t have come here.
Yes, we all know some lazy men our own age, but your older man might need to go to bed earlier than you, and he’s probably not going to find late-night house parties very appealing.
