River Oaks Singles Dating | Top 4 Pros of Dating an Older Man

single women in houston

We know a lot of women who prefer dating an older man. Remember when you were a teen and your mother told you that girls were two years more mature than guys?

Whether you believe it or not, dating an older man has many benefits over dating a younger man.

The good news is that 60% of men are attracted to younger women, so you’re a beautiful woman who’s perfect for an older man.

Dating an older man can have many perks. Today, our River Oaks matchmakers will show you the reasons to date an older man.

  1. He’s financially stable.


An older man is past the early-30s “what am I doing with my life” stage. There’s a good chance he’s midway in his career, and therefore has already achieved a level of stability.

Being financially stable isn’t about making $100k a year. It’s about being smart with money. Maybe investing in purchasing a home. It’s the opposite of dating a loser who’s broke and doesn’t know what to do with his life.

It’s nice to date a man who can afford to take you out to a nice restaurant.

Whose car doesn’t break down right outside of your house.

Who has more than one dress shirt.

Who could afford to take you on a romantic vacation.

There’s plenty of appeal to that, and you can’t find that with a younger guy who’s just starting out in his career.

  1. He doesn’t play games.


He’s already played games in his 20’s, and he’s past those days.

A young man doesn’t know what he wants, and so he plays the dating game and uses women for his own benefits. An older man, especially one who’s already been married once, knows what he wants in a relationship. If he’s ready for a long-term relationship, he’ll let you know. You won’t have to wonder where he stands. He’s not out to waste your time or his. He wants you to know within a few dates that he’s only looking for commitment.

Now, we aren’t saying that all older men are ready to settle down. Plenty still want to play the field. But they’ll be more upfront about their intentions. At least then you will know what he wants and if he’s worth going after.

  1. He has a lot of confidence.


Chalk it up to having a lot of experience: they tend to be more confident. They’ve been around the block: sexually, financially, career-wise, and, of course, dating and love. They’re not timid about sharing their point of view. They carry themselves with confidence and a positive attitude.

If you’ve dated younger guys that were wimpy and lacked confidence, it’s understandable you’d consider dating someone older. That confidence and take-charge attitude is very appealing to women.

  1. They’re not jealous.


Younger men tend to get very jealous.

“Hey, where you’ve been all day?”

It’s yawn-inducing, right? We know. But how nice is it to be with a man who knows that, from time to time, you have things to do – someone who does not freak out about it?

It goes back to being confident. He’s assured of what he has and isn’t threatened by another man. The level of maturity in an older man is very appealing and refreshing.
