Pros and Cons of Dating Richer Older Men


Wealth is said to be one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs which is why older richer men have never had any problems in finding young women as partners. It is only when the notions of equality and mutual respect emerged in modern times that a huge age difference in relationships began to seem out of line. However like any other romantic equation, dating richer older men has its own pros and cons and here are few worth considering.

He is successful

The most obvious advantage of dating an older man is being perhaps the material success that you can partake of as his partner. An older man is far more likely to be established and successful in his career than a younger guy, not to mention being debt-free. This means that as his partner, you can live the good life – shopping at the most exclusive labels, dining at the finest restaurants, vacationing at private islands and wearing the biggest diamonds. On the other hand being with a younger guy would have taken years of economic living to be able to afford even a part of those comforts.

He has contacts

Apart from being indulged with luxuries, a relationship with a richer older man might also help you in your career. If you are the ambitious sort and more importantly if your partner sees the potential in you, he is well placed to make a few phone calls and unlock a few doors of opportunity for you. Call it having a mentor or a sugar daddy but in fact a lot of successful women today are where they are because they received a little help from their richer and older partners.

He is mature

The more experiences a person has, the more likely he is to be emotionally mature. This is a huge advantage as compared to younger men who are forever getting jealous of your mingling with other guys or expecting their fragile egos to be massaged every now and then. An older and more mature man is less likely to be affected by petty concerns and ego-hassles. In fact you can expect the advantages of a mature personality to extend to your sex life as well. An older partner is not only likely to be more sexually experienced but more importantly,  far more sensitive to your needs than the young fellas who are too interested in their own satisfaction to notice what their partners are feeling.

He is responsible

A long and successful career implies that a guy is capable of fulfilling his professional responsibilities. So you can expect him to be similarly sensitive to the needs and obligations in a personal relationship as well. This is a far cry from your younger ex who couldn’t be trusted to put the mortgage in the back nor remember to pick up your son from soccer practice. In fact if you are considering starting a family or are a divorcee with kids, it makes more sense to settle for an older man who is professionally and emotionally more responsible.

All the advantages might make you think that an older, richer guy makes the ideal partner. But before you take any
decisions, take a look at the other side of the picture as well.

He has the upper hand

The first thing that you need to keep in mind when dating an older, richer man that it highly unlikely you will have a relationship of equals. Your partner will be the one with the more resources and thus with the greater degree of control in the relationship. This is not to imply that you will be bossed over or tossed about all the time but expect him to decide when and where to go out on most occasions and take the major decisions affecting your relationship. Even worse than that is the fact that you are likely to receive less respect as an individual as compared to a relationship with a younger guy where you both are practically on the same level of professional and personal development. This does vary with the individual and if you can hold your own, your youth may help you get more importance.

He is looking to boost his ego

Even though an older and successful partner might possess emotional maturity and a sense of responsibility, he may choose not to bring those qualities into a relationship. Rather his decision for picking a young woman as a partner might be his way of boosting his self-esteem as he approaches a mid-life crisis or is caught in the grip of one. Men who take on sugar babies are usually at an age when they need to be reassured that their masculinity has not diminished. Having young and good-looking female companions is a good way to regain fast-eroding confidence in one’s sexual ability since you can prove to the world that you still have what it takes to attract young women.

Sex is not always that good

Wonder drugs like Viagra have ensured that men can be sexually active far longer into their years. However sex with an older partner comes with its own set of complications. On one hand the lack of respect in a relationship might make you feel little more than a sex object while the actual act of sex with your partner might be far from satisfying, unless you're truly in love. In fact on some occasions you may even have to put in more effort to bring about a desired result. Making love with a younger partner on the other hand is perhaps a much more intense and fulfilling experience, borne as it is on the waves of sexual chemistry and visual appeal. You're more likely to be at a disadvantage if the age gap runs is very large with the man being from your father's generation.

He has other commitments

The chief advantage of dating an older, richer man lies in being able to afford the luxuries and material comforts without seeming to work for it. However it is quite likely that you will not have the only claim to your partner’s fortunes. There may be in the background ex-wives receiving handsome alimonies and children from former marriages needing substantial child support. So factor in all these points before expending time and effort in snagging a rich older partner only to find out that he is already inundated with responsibilities.

He is not faithful

One of the biggest pitfalls of dating a richer, older man is lack of commitment to the relationship. If you are a simply arm candy for a wealthy guy, who is to say that tomorrow you will not be supplanted by someone who is younger and sexier. This is because such a relationship is primarily contractual in nature – you lavish him with your looks and sexual appeal while he indulges you with luxuries. If you are looking for something that will actually last, your best bet is to settle for a relationship based on a unique emotional connection, which in fact can be with anyone - rich or poor, young or old.
