A young woman in a relationship with someone older might may encounter problems that stem from differences in interests, hobbies and overall mind set between her and her boyfriend.
Depending on the age difference, couples may be in different stages of their lives.
In fact, a Boston Globe report went a step further to chart Clooney's age difference history with previous girlfriends, the average being 9.73 years.
What about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were 16 years apart when they were married?
Last year, I realized that maybe I should start having stricter standards for who I’ll date.
You know, require that a man own a home, have a job, stuff like that.
According to professionals at Two Of Us, a division of The National Healthy Marriage Resource Center, age differences are often viewed as an obstacle that prevents a mature relationship from developing.
A main disadvantage of dating an older man is the tension it may cause between you, and your family and friends.
DATING an older man can have its perks — upward social mobility, wise advice, maturity, resources and a host of other things, but despite the glitz and glamour, there can be a few disadvantages.
While such a relationship might provide upward social mobility for the younger person and people might argue that age is just a number, there are certain conditionalities that come with dating a man your senior, especially if he’s twice or thrice your age. Controlling Williams said the older man can be controlling from several angles.
Finding those restrictions a bit picky, a friend and I devised a new strategy: We’d spend 2010 focusing on dating older guys.
It made sense: they have good jobs, they’re settled and own homes, and they’ve finally gotten to the point in their lives where they know how to treat a woman.
Family members and friends could also have questions about your motives behind dating an older man.
