He wants to feel that you see what is special about him, and not just how he is the opposite of everybody else you’ve dated.

But if you're talking about kissing people you date, be cautious in how you use this form of affection.

Don't throw kisses around - treat them as something valuable to be used with discretion. Under a second or two could be a useful rule, I suppose.

He's lovely and a great man, very patient and considerate (we waited 3 months before having sex cos i wasn't ready until then) and it was our 8 month anniversary yesterday so the relationship its self is lovely.

I just wondered what people think about the fact that i was 17 and he 21 when we began dating?

Your guy will feel guilty that your kids have to scram when he’s around, and you’ll feel guilty about hiding your pride and joy!

A younger man wants to feel that you’re approaching the concept of dating younger men from a positive place.

Your body won’t bounce back the same; and if he wanted a party girl, he’d be with one, instead of you. The greatest thing about dating someone younger is that he has so many places to show you that you’d never know about otherwise, and visa versa. You’ve had a longer life and inevitably accomplished more than your cub.

It’s natural to reference your own history, experiences, victories etc.

You probably don’t have the abs you used to back in the day, so get acquainted with flowy tops.

The good news is your girls probably grew with age and maybe a little weight gain elsewhere. Play the music you like when he comes over, suggest movies from your youth on movie night, and for goodness sake do not keep up with the Kardashians.

You’ll thrive in the game of dating younger men if you can pin that down, and if you can avoid the bad behavior of your fellow 40-plus felines.

Trying to dress like you’re half your age makes you look twice your age.

Too many cougars hit the gym obsessively, whittling their bodies down to nothing but bone. He won’t know as much about money management or interior design or even table manners as you do.
