You met an older woman while browsing through dating apps and sites and started to share some details with each other. You find her interesting and attractive, but your age gap is putting you off from going further. 
When it comes to dating and relationships, age is just a number. There's no denying that the age gap is not a problem anymore in our society. People are more open-minded and accepting of the idea of being with someone older than them. In fact, the number of relationships where couples are years or even a decade apart is steadily increasing. 
If you haven't had one or you're interested, you're probably wondering what it feels like to be in a relationship with an older woman. Here are some important things you should know:

She knows what she wants

A younger woman is exploring a lot of things, and she might still be undecided about various matters in life. An older woman clearly knows what she wants at the very beginning. Her previous experiences help her visualize what she wants when it comes to her partner, relationship, and other aspects of her life. 
If she decides to start a relationship with you, she likely already knows if she just wants to have fun and go with the flow or she's looking ahead in the future and wanting a serious, long-term commitment.

You learn and realize a lot of things 

Dating and being in a great relationship is a big driving factor in our self-discovery. Our past and current relationships help us identify our likes and dislikes whether it's about dating or choosing a partner. Since older women have more experiences, they can share a lot of things you don't know yet and help you grow further as a person.

Expect an emotionally mature partner

Unnecessary drama in relationships is common when you're dating younger women. But older women are different. They are more likely to have control over their emotions and behavior, so their men don't have to worry about it. 

Older women have different tastes and interests

Unlike younger women, older women often prefer to be at home or spend their time in places where there is less noise and social activities. You won't see them that much at bars or parties. This is why it's much easier to meet older women online and not at your local pub. Older women would prefer doing hobbies like reading and gardening than going to places with a large crowd. If that's what you think you would prefer, then you won't have any problems with dating a woman that is older than you.

Dealing with a different lifestyle

An older woman is usually financially stable and successful in her chosen career. These are some noticeable gaps that younger men are dealing with while dating an older woman. The situation can be more challenging if she has children with her previous partner. You have to mix in with her family and be part of it eventually. 

The bottom line

Having a relationship with an older woman has its perks, but it can be challenging at times as you have to bridge the gap between you and your partner. Nonetheless, it's often a rewarding and fulfilling experience.
