10 year age gap dating
And what they're really about is the need to control, or the need to be looked after by, a partner.A woman much younger than her partner, says Julia, has many advantages.
You take your age, subtract 7, and multiply that by two to get the oldest age you should date, and do the inverse to get the youngest.
Put simply, most women don't reach the same heights of success as men do and don't have as much wealth or influence to flaunt, so that's not what younger men want from them,' says Julia.
If you're the older partner in an age gap relationship, the worst thing you can do is expect, or assume, that it will last - it's highly unlikely.
As usual when an age-gap relationship ends, the demise of the Amanda Holden-Les Dennis marriage (17 years between them) was met with a loud chorus of 'I-told-you-so'.
It doesn't seem to matter how wise we all are to the fact that age-gap relationships are unlikely to last; there will always be plenty of couples with a generation or more between them who want to give it a go.
