With every passing year I know more and more friends and colleagues who find love with someone older than them – usually and older guy. I see everyone as different. I am sure that there are some negative examples of someone too innocent, naïve, young being taken advantage of by someone who more experienced and manipulating. Yet there are also simple cases of attraction that develops into affection that shoots down roots and flourishes into romance and love.
There is something that scares me about younger people today. They seem incredible fickle and capricious. I think that is one of the reasons why I am drawn to people older than myself. They make me feel safer. I feel I can trust them and rely on them. Yeah….I know I sound a little biased here….but I am just bringing up the subject. I find myself more often attracted romantically to men who are older than me.
