Most ladies who choose to date older men are usually tagged gold diggers. Once I met a lady who clarified that she was not dating older men because she was a  “gold digger”, it was more important to her to pull her own weight and be financially stable but most guys her age were just not her thing and she preferred older men.

Of course there are the occasional gold diggers and most older men come with a bit or a lot of financial comfort but you have to be honest sha, what’s the point dating an older man if he is broke, I mean what else did he do with his younger years?

For the purpose of this post, older men do not include married men o (that’s a whole new kettle of fish)

Anyway out of my curiosity, I decided to ask a few women who only date men that are 10 years and over why they preferred the age gap and here are some of the reasons given:

Well that’s stating the obvious but older men are generally more mature. I won’t say this is the fact for all cases because I have seen some 40 year olds in Lagos still trying to live the bom-boy life. Truth is, most older men are looking to have a quiet time over an intelligent conversation.

Whether it’s in their career, knowledge acquired overtime or relationships, most older men know what they’re doing and know what they want. An older man is confident and can teach you a thing or two with his advice.

They may be older, but they’ve learned a lesson or two about making money, saving money and balancing accounts. They would have taken out time to build their future and would be able to guide you on how to ensure a better financial future.

Older men are usually ready to commit and settle down. I mean after you have made all that money, you need a woman to help you spend them and give you heirs and heiresses to the dynasty.

They know that communication and compromise are important if you’re going to succeed as a couple, so they won’t do stupid things or prove to be stubborn like most younger men do. 

Believe it or not, most older men are romantic and are always trying to keep you happy. Then again, can you blame them? After a few years of failed relationships, they’re trying to make sure that this one works out.

He is ‘older’ which means a lot of the things you do or slang you use are new to him. He’s willing to try new things just to make you happy and to make him feel younger again.

When a younger woman dates an older man, most people assume she’s only interested in his money and maybe they are right for some but if you want to receive fancy jewellery and never pay for a date, then an older man with a good job is exactly what you need.

If you’re pretty and adventurous, it’s not hard to date a man your own age, however if you want to date an older man, you have to prove that you are mature and good enough to be by his side.

Everyone’s taste is different so some women are just attracted to the older look, like have you seen RMD lately?

There you have it, 10 reasons why some younger ladies prefer dating older men.

So ladies do you agree or disagree? What do you think are the benefits of dating older men?

  1. The sex is better. Much better. Most young men just thrust with reckless abandon and treat your body parts like nerveless entities that feel no pain. Older men are better lovers, end of. And there’s seldom any drama with them.
