Dealing with Criticism about Dating an Older Woman

Double-Dating… with a Woman Your Mom’s Age

For some people it’s just plain weird to see an older woman coupled with a younger guy, even with an age difference of only 10 or 15 years. How shameful, considering those same people wouldn’t bat much of an eye in the presence of an older man luvin’ on a younger woman — often 25 or more years his junior.

To hell with the scrutiny. Be proud of the woman you’re dating, and show her off. You’ll discover who your real friends are.

A double-date is just the kind of situation where you’d fully expect someone to get all douchebaggy behind your back:

  • OMG how old is that woman? Appropriate response: None of your fuckin’ business.
  • I don’t even wanna imagine them having sex. Appropriate response: Then don’t. Douchebag.
  • She’s preying on him. Appropriate response: And doing an orgasmic job, thankyouverymuch.
  • What’s he getting out of it? Appropriate response: And doing an orgasmic job, thankyouverymuch.

So how do you get past any awkwardness of being on a double-date with an older woman and another couple your own (younger) age?

Be normal. If it’s not a problem for you, then it’s not a problem. If it’s a problem for the other couple, then see reference above to knowing who your friends are.

Don’t try to “sell” her. You’re not there to convince anyone that the (older) woman you’re crazy about is worth getting crazy about. She can shine all on her own.

Slaughter the elephant. Address the age difference head-on, if you like. Talk about why it’s been advantageous for you as a couple.

You’re a couple, you’re there with another couple. Talk couplestuffs. If people are meeting for the first time, why not talk about the age difference? Maybe people are curious, and would like to know more about an age-gap relationship, if only because it’s interesting. It’s certainly more interesting than So, what do you do?

Guaranteed: if you’re with the right woman, no matter how old she is, your (real) friends will wanna sign up for more couple-time.
