What to know before dating a younger guy

So you’ve found someone that makes your heart skip a beat. There’s just one problem: he’s younger than you. And not just a month or two. We’re talking years. Do you end things before they really start or do you take a deep breath and dive right in? Let’s look at the pros and cons.

Pro 

Youthful enthusiasm. Remember when everything was shiny, bright and exciting, and life was an adventure just waiting to be explored? Chances are you’re a bit past that stage, but he’s living it right here, right now. His natural enthusiasm and lust for life could soon rub off on you, bolstering your mood and your own vitality at the same time. 

Con 

Sometimes you actually just want to be a bit grumpy and down OK? That’s what sweatpants and red wine were made for. 

Pro 

You’ll do things together. Lots of things. Dating men your own age can often involve a lot of couch time, because, exhaustion. But dating a younger guy means dating someone with boundless energy, which in turn means actually going out and doing things. Vive le social life!

Con 

He likely won’t have any money, ever. But if you’re cool with paying for everything, then go for it. 

Pro 

He’ll have no issues introducing you to his friends. Whereas older men tend to be more reticent about introducing their partners to their group, younger men see life as one long party, where everyone’s invited. And that means you! 

Con 

You won’t have a clue what anyone’s talking about. ‘Lit’, ‘turnt’ and ‘woke’? Might as well be gibberish

Pro 

Stamina. Lots of stamina. 

Con 

Yeah no, there aren’t really any cons. 

Pro 

He’ll worship you. Which means he won’t waste an opportunity to shower you with compliments, take care of you and even buy you small gifts when he can afford it. Being with you will be a boost to his self-confidence, one that could manifest into the kind of relationship you’ve always wanted. 

Con 

Zero. Just lap it up.
