Dating an older man while in college
From our first conversation, I could tell he was very mature for his age. Once I learned his actual age, I was concerned that he might not be ready to settle down and have a family, when I definitely was.Even some 30-something guys I knew didn't seem ready.Even Nicole’s boyfriend Brad, 31, admits that a lot of guys his age are not sincere in their motives when it comes to college girls.“Being brutally honest, a lot of guys in their 20s know college girls working in a big city means there’s really little commitment – summer will end, and they’ll go back to campus.
As with all relationships,communication is essential. Collegiette™ Krista explains how she made it work with her older guy:“I met him at a bar. I found it to be super exciting but frustrating at other times because he didn’t always want to go out and party. I don't know why this one year made such a difference to me. After spending a few days trying to adjust to the fact that the handsome co-leader of my small group was seven years my junior, I had just realized that he was actually eight years younger!Stepping away from your college bubble also means you are re-entering the “real world,” at least for three months.Whether you’re living in a city away from home for a job or internship, traveling or just living at home, you’re much more likely to face “real world” situations – such as dating older men. And are mature enough to talk about things other than chugging Bud Light in their frat houses !
