There is also the fact that your parents might not be happy about your relationship with an older man from the day one, but if you have the patience and wait for a while, you’ll see that they will relax and get to see that you are happy with him.Just because you are dating an older guy, it doesn’t mean that you will have to leave all your friends behind and never see them again, start hanging out with his friends or to behave like you’re 10 years older all of a sudden. Find the time for everything and balance your social life.When you are dating a guy, there are always things you have to think about- how to do your hair, will he notice your new dress, how to surprise him on some special occasion, etc.But, when that guy is a lot older than you, there is a certain level of expectation that you will have to meet in order to make the relationship work and that is not always an easy thing to do.It is true, he might not always be up for every suggestion you have about doing new and spontaneous things that get him out of the everyday life, but that doesn’t mean you should stop suggesting.He’ll be surprised with how much passion you can provide him with and that will keep him more alive than ever.Go out with your girls and do the regular shopping as you usually do, while your darling is at work.Don’t miss out on some parties just because he is off at some important meeting.
Just be patient and don’t let new situations bring you down.
Since he is a lot older than you, it might happen that he is expecting a lot more mature behavior from you, as you are expecting a lot more childish behavior from him.
Neither of those is wrong, but be understanding of his lifestyle and try to meet him half way.
Don’t be scared to let him teach you something, because he will be extra careful with that and he will be more than glad to be the one you come to when you want to learn something new.
Also, when he has something to say about some of your friends or some of your reactions or decisions, hear him out.
