Does age difference play a major role in whether or not a couple can establish a happy and loving relationship? The facts say no. And, by the way today’s society is tending to be more accepting of age difference, couples are less secretive about these once frowned upon unions.
People are realizing that society does not have the power to control their lives. While society looks down on many things that aren’t traditional and not the norm, it’s quite common to see men or women dating someone who is twenty years younger than them.
Many people wonder if it’s possible for relationships with significant age differences to work out. Can they develop into long-term, or maybe lifelong relationships?
Both men and women are attracted to one another for countless reasons. Genuine attraction to someone isn’t something that can be denied or changed. This is true even if the person that you are attracted to is significantly younger than you. If there is a connection between you, there is a reason for it. You really shouldn’t try to deny that connection or even avoid it just because society might think that you are wrong for being involved with someone who might be many years your junior.
Many men and women who are in their forties or fifties look much younger than their actual age. They still look the same and are just as healthy and active as they were when in their late twenties and early thirties!
Medical research and advances in anti-aging products have helped people remain much younger in appearance than previous generations. It’s almost as if a virtual ‘fountain of youth” has been discovered and the middle-aged baby boomers are grabbing hold of it with both hands!
These men and women are often much more mature then their younger counterparts and this appears to be the major attraction, especially for younger women who are dating older men. And, at the same time, younger men are open to dating older women for the similar reasons. They want a mature woman who can direct them in life. They want someone who is able put up with a little bit of immaturity and can handle their younger lifestyle and sometimes erratic behavior.
So, can these age difference relationships work out? Can they lead to something long-term or lifelong? The answer is a resounding “yes”! There are many couples who have been in intimate, long-term relationships for years; take the Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore age difference as a proven example. Sometimes, even an age gap of twenty years or more is not an obstacle and many of these age difference couples have married and raise families.
It is very possible to have a lasting relationship with someone who is younger than you. The first hurdle is to decide if you can cope with what society says and thinks. If you are able to deal with what people are going to say, then you are way ahead of the game!
You and your younger partner can focus all of your time and effort into building your relationship and making it the best that it can possibly be. As long as you enter into an age difference relationship for all the right reasons, you’re giving yourself the best possible chance of things working out successfully when dating someone much younger than yourself.
