Younger men dating older women often have their hands full. If you only have experience dating women your own age or younger there are some big mistakes that you need to avoid. Fortunately for you, we have asked 43 dating experts to share the biggest mistakes that younger men are making. Make sure you don’t become another guy who can’t handle an older woman.

TOP MISTAKES OF YOUNGER MEN DATING OLDER WOMEN

Avoid these mistakes and maximize your chances:

1. TRYING TO “COPY AND PASTE” WHAT AN OLDER GUY WOULD DO

A younger guy will often try to ‘copy and paste’ or even out match an older guy. This is a pointless strategy because they both offer something totally different.

Older women don’t go for younger men because of their stability, their life experience or their achievements. They go for them because of their ‘happy go lucky’ attitude and their self-belief. Younger guys need to work out what the older guy is lacking rather than what attributes he has.

2. ACTING MORE LIKE A FRIEND THAN A POTENTIAL LOVER OR BOYFRIEND

For most people, sex drive does decrease with age. However, that doesn’t mean that a woman wants to be with a man who she feels no spark with.

If a guy wants to be successful at dating and getting into a relationship with an attractive older woman, he needs to ensure that he actively creates a spark of sexual and romantic attraction, rather than only being nice and friendly.

3. YOUNGER MEN DATING OLDER WOMEN FALL INTO A “JUNIOR” ROLE

Sometimes younger men may be in awe of the older woman’s experience a bit. Remember, having a plan and leading accordingly turn any woman on, regardless of age. Yet, some guys let themselves fall into a “junior” role with an older woman, which soon leads to loss of attraction.

4. HANDLING HER THE SAME WAY YOU WOULD A YOUNGER WOMAN

One of the most common mistakes I see men make when dating an older woman is handling her the same way they would a younger woman. Older women tend to be more mature, which may appear to make some of the things a younger man might do seem out of character, which ultimately makes the older woman feel uncomfortable.

The solution is to be conscious of the age difference, and to cater some of the activities throughout the relationship to also suit her needs.

5. USING TEXT AS YOUR MAIN FORM OF COMMUNICATION

The biggest mistake younger men are making with older women is treating them as if they’re the same age or younger. Older women are generally not interested in constantly texting or being asked out via text.
Also, they will not respond to men on dating sites or social media if the message is something like, “Hi” or “Hello”. There are many more men interested in dating older women than there are women available, so younger men need to bring their “A” game.

6. NOT SPEAKING UP

Remember that your opinions count. Just because she’s older (and presumably wiser) doesn’t mean that she gets to call all the shots. There are two people in this relationship. You’ll need to get comfortable exchanging roles as to who leads. It’s an equal partnership.

This attitudinal choice works to your benefit. You’re establishing that you’re the man. Yes, you work with your mate. And yes, you listen to her wants and needs. But you have your own ideas and approach. In order to keep the passion and desire alive, she needs to see and feel your strength. It’s an animal thing. Women need to know they have a real man by their side; capable, decisive and confident.
