Troop Deployment: Relationships With Older Women Are Great!
In the last news cycle we got the “most young men are single, most young women aren’t” piece going around.
There are numerous takes on this, but I’d like to point out that the world is full of non-standard options that a lot of people overlook. So I want to get the word out about dating older women.
I did it when young and it was great! The maturity of an older partner during the turbulent young years is a major balm—having that sort of calming presence around to balance things gives you perspective. They handle their personal shit without drawing you into it. The extra monetary resources they have available is refreshing, they don’t expect you to pay for things and they’ll pick up the cost of more expensive activities sometimes. They can teach you a thing or two about sex.
And thing is, when you're in your twenties, late 30s-mid 40s counts as "older" and ladies are still plenty hot at that age if they've taken care of themselves!
I honestly think all young people should date older for at least a little while. I’m here to normalize young men+older women, especially in the male’s late teens/early 20s.
For the young guys who do try to take this advice - please remember that we’re a fucking project at that age. Most women don’t have an innate youth-preference like men do, so they’re taking on an extra downside by dating younger. So be good to your older ladies. Treat them well, be respectful, give them what they need too. Really try to learn the sex things they teach you, both for their benefit and for the benefit of all your future partners and yourself. :) And don’t complicate their lives unnecessarily. Being a bad partner is always bad, of course, but don’t neglect this relationship. It’s rude, and you’d be burning the commons for all the young guys coming up after you.
Why is this post titled “Troop Deployment?” I’m on a podcast with a regular Random Opinion segment, called “Troop Deployments.” Figured if I’m writing them out for the podcast, I’ma double-dip and put it on my blog as well. This way there’s an easily-searchable text record as well.
