7. DATING WITH LESS PRESSURE IS JUST A RELIEF.As women, the pressure to conform to the traditional narrative of finding a partner, getting married and having kids is immense whether those choices are personally appealing or not. In addition to the expectations of our older family members and married friends, our life choices are then shamelessly politicized by the media. If, like me, you’re sick of this unwanted interference, dating someone less likely to join the pressure brigade is a no-brainer. He’s not even thinking about settling down and there’s no pressure to do so, which takes a huge weight off.
8. THE VALUE OF EQUALITY IS IMMENSE. Unfortunately, the struggle for relationship equality is real for many of us. During my last relationship, I was bored of having to break down the barrier of toxic masculinity before my ex would accept the benefit of my input, especially in typically male dominated areas. With my younger guy, the worth of my life experience is a given and my advice is actually valued. Our 20s are a difficult and formative time, so from my older perspective, being able to aid the journey of someone I love is very rewarding.
9. HIS INFLUENCE IS POSITIVE AND ENLIGHTENING.The people we surround ourselves with encourage different elements of ourselves that can have a huge impact on how our personalities are cultivated over time. Seeking new experiences and stepping out of our comfort zones is how we can truly develop as humans. The amazing thing about dating someone younger is the access to new and exciting experiences, and this positive effect filters into every aspect of life.relationships,relationships,relationships
