Are you dating an older fellow or thinking about dipping your toes into that more mature water? Or, in Jess's (Zooey Deschanel's character, for those of you who aren't fans yet) case, don't ask about his health: "How's your prostate? Our bodies are decaying."DO relish in the fact that guys get better looking with age, but you'll always be the hot, younger girlfriend.Well, my dears, you've come to the right place. DON' T complain about turning "halfway to 50" when he's "one year til 30".There's already enough pressure when it comes to dating, why add more stress and think about the age thing if you really like this dude? ” whispers my friend, incredulously, as my 60-year-old partner leaves the table go to the loo. ” I’m in my 30s and was sick of bad boys - we decided to try and make it work.Even though deep down I know it’s ludicrous, I can’t help but feel it’s my fault he can’t keep it up.As amazing as it is when he goes down on me, I long to feel him come inside me.
” I guess my fairly young and trendy outfits are a stark contrast to his houndstooth jacket, well-ironed shirt, slacks and those awful shoes that every old man seems to wear (sorry love). We often resort to one-sided foreplay or cuddling instead of sex.
And I've added a couple of my own tips for good measure, since I am the younger woman and all. DON' T point out how "cute" his first grey chest hair is (OOPS).
But I've been watching and compiled a list of DOs and DON' Ts from Jess's experience dating the sophisticated Dermot Mulroney as Fancypants, who's a whopping twelve years older.
Since we met, I’ve stopped drinking so much and having casual sex to feel better about myself.
Instead, we’ll spend our weekends watching a film or talking about philosophy.
Of course, our unconventional relationship does have its downsides.
