Dating women older children
Woman D: The impact on the sex was definitely negative.
At 18, I was just beginning to explore my sexuality and he was already comfortable in his.
But it's not an exact science — there are plenty of immature older men that would put teenagers to shame.
What did/do you friends and family think of your relationship? A couple of my friends have similar stories about dating older men: they chose the person and not the age group. Woman C: My friends were much calmer than I thought they would be — a couple said they always thought I would end up with an older man. I think it felt good for him that an 18-year-old was choosing to spend time with him. Because he had a reluctance to grow up, he wanted to stay young in as many ways as possible.We've had talks about what is nonnegotiable and about certain things he may be open to in the future. I think he was much more secure and caring of the awkwardness of sex than a 26-year-old.But again, I think it's more because of who he is, rather than the more experience.I think it was a thrill for him and gave him a chance to relive some of his adolescence.
