Dating in 20 years older guy
For as long as I can remember, I’ve preferred older men.

Before you go bounding merrily across the age gap, there are some things you’ll need to get your head around if you’re considering dating an older man.
Plus they tend to live alone, which means no queueing for the bathroom in the mornings while their weird flatmate is covering 90% of his body with Veet. You’ll actually use your landline To your average forty- or fiftysomething, Tinder is what you use to start fires. They might write you – gasp – an actual love letter.

Williams added that the older man may be set in his ways and bring an approach to say, ‘I’m used to fried chicken, so don’t give me jerk’.
