Dating older woman child

Indeed, my first long-term relationship was with a woman 12 years my senior.I was 26 when I started dating Ann, a successful 38-year-old TV producer.She was his drama teacher, married and 25 years his senior.I’d grown up with two older sisters so being around more mature women was nothing new but this felt different — very different.Her quiet confidence and unflappable nature helped me mature as a man.I’m not sure that would have happened if I’d continued floundering around with flaky women my own age.On occasion, my more conventional friends would question how long a relationship like ours could last.

The loosening of gender roles means more equality when it comes to choosing a partner.She’d reached the fortunate position of being able to choose a man she actually liked rather than one who ticked boring, predictable boxes. While the traditional template of older man/younger woman still dominates, there appears to have been a shift.Ann would laugh whenever I brought up the subject of age. Research suggests the older woman/younger man relationship has been on the increase since the Eighties.Ann cut through my insecurities and uncertainties, assuring me her love depended not on what I was, but who I was.Having survived the vagaries of an unhappy marriage, there wasn’t much that could phase Ann, and although I initially found her career success slightly intimidating, she never once made me feel diminished or emasculated, even on days when I struggled to leave the house.
