Older men dating younger singles: a perfect match?

Have you ever heard the saying, “Certain things get better with age”? That’s definitely true when dating older men. For someone younger, dating a man 10 to 20 years older can provide more than simply great experiences or memories. These relationships can turn into something serious and be a solid foundation for a long-term commitment, primarily because of how younger singles' outlooks and characteristics often complement those of an older man. An older/younger relationship is not only one of the most common motifs in dating, it’s also one of the most popular. 

Older men, dating, and the perks of age-gap romance

There’s something romantic, alluring and even reassuring about dating a man who’s quite a bit older than you. These men tend to be way more well-established and courteous, they’re chivalrous and you’ll never hear the words, “let’s hang out” ever again. Straightforward and assertive, older men act with intention and focus because they’re usually busy living thriving lives with great jobs they’re passionate about.

They’ve also spent enough time in the dating world to know exactly what they like and what turns them off. You’ll never be in an unsure space or gray area when dating an older man because they have neither the time nor the inclination to play games. This aversion to game-playing also means that with an older man there’s more than a modicum of stability and more than simply a “chance” for talks about the future and long-term commitment. In fact, when dating, older men are likely to be as intentional and focused when it comes to planning for and talking about a serious relationship as they are in business.

What can older men get out of the situation?

An older-younger relationship can work wonders for the younger part of the equation, especially if they are looking for older men dating with permanence in mind, men who will stay present with them, who are calm and stable and who have spent time building their lives independently. When a younger person finds the right older man for them, these foundations can make for a soulmate type of love match. But what does the older man get out of the relationship?

Younger singles drawn to older men bring a lot of youth, vibrance and vitality to the relationship. It is a mutually beneficial match that both individuals can experience and can partake of. Often, the younger person tends to be more spontaneous and romantic, which is perfect for the romantic and “old school” older man who knows exactly how to wine, dine and court his beloved but also wants to break up the routine and be surprised every now and then.

Dating older men: taking the search online

As game-changing as dating an older man can turn out to be, nothing changes up the dating world quite like online dating. Taking the plunge and immersing yourself on a dating platform like EliteSingles means that your opportunities for developing a long-lasting relationship with someone compatible are multiplied tenfold. What's more, online dating is a safe and fun space for younger singles in their 20s or 30s to meet and interact with older men dating over 50 or 60 without being in intimidating surroundings.

It can start off with simple profile appreciation, and can move into a longer, deeper conversation, and even a great first couple of dates. The entire process is much more drawn out (if you’d like it to be) or it can be much faster — but with online dating, both parties have a say. And it's efficient too: if you find yourself living a more hectic schedule, online dating lifts the constraints of having to trek down to a social setting to interact with local singles. What's more, with EliteSingles, you’re not constantly bombarded with messages or meaningless interactions that are not going to result in what you’re really looking for. EliteSingles will send you a handful of compatible matches each day, between 3 and 7, so you’re spending time with an already-well curated list that you can choose to take initiative on and really consider.

Happy singles seeking love

Online dating can be a real safe haven for an older-younger relationship, especially on a reputable site like EliteSingles, where member's profiles have been manually verified before being approved. Using EliteSingles also means that your matches have filled in our extensive personality test and have been matched with you because they suit your temperament.

What*s more, our users tend to be educated, interesting singles (91% of which have at least a Bachelor's Degree) who are happy, satisfied, and looking to add even more to their rich lives. This means, instead of seeking from a place of desperation, on EliteSingles people are looking from a place of ease, passion and mutual love. EliteSingles is predicated upon looking for a love connection that is meaningful and leading to the same place: a long-term commitment between two like-minded individuals that are naturally attracted to one another.

Dating advice for all singles

This one's for the older men who might have recently returned to the dating scene: in your past dating days, you may have had a best friend or a “wingman” who would help you catch the eye of the cutie at the bar. But that scene is not really your thing anymore and that’s where a service like EliteSingles can help upgrade your experience as well as your potential matches.

For the 20-and-30-year olds looking to date an older man, this means that instead of a well-intentioned “friend”, you’ve got our dedicated customer service team on standby to guide you through the matches we’ve sent you as well as give you support on your journey. For men looking to date younger singles they can do so with a peace of mind because our team has actually screened member profiles so you won’t be bumping into time-wasters. Rather, you’ll make meaningful connections with Canadians who are looking for a serious relationship and a real man by their side.

EliteSingles has such a high success rate because we do the hard work for you. Our tried and tested approach to online dating means that you only interact with other singles who are as intentional and focused as you are when it comes to finding true love. Sure, as an older man, it’s important to get to know the people you’re trying to meet, making them feel comfortable as you get to know them. But it’s also important to see that this interaction has the potential to go both ways, that they're the type of person who will give you reciprocity in their responses.

For single women and men in their 20s and 30s who are looking to get into a serious relationship with an older man, EliteSingles offers plenty of great matches that have a higher chance of working out. You can meet men from all walks of life that you may not have had the chance to encounter otherwise and form a lasting connection. Ready for some butterflies? Join us today!
