And if, by chance, it becomes more serious organically, so be it.

I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:- They’re not ambitious enough, or they don't have a go-getter attitude.- They’re not financially stable.- They still want to date around.- They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.- They don’t have their sh*t together.

I’m not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn’t been fulfilling for me.

I never babysat the kids in my neighborhood once; I couldn’t relate to kids at all. I would crush on older guys when I was 13, but I really didn’t start actually dating an older guy until I was 26; he was 40.

That relationship was fun and short-lived, but what I've learned since then has taken me a long way when dating older men.

He’s made it over the hump, and is doing just fine. He’s been in the labor force for the past 25 years.

He’s probably had more awful bosses, terrible jobs, and career changes than you can imagine.

George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.

But, it’s not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.

I had a normal childhood, but I have been living in the “adult world” since I was a kid. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way.

The only thing probably missing in my life is a partner, a published book and an owned property… To elaborate even further, I’m an only child, and growing up, I never had many close friends. I was teased and picked on a lot from the kids at school. I guess that’s where I began the attraction for the older man type, and it used to freak my mother out.

I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.
