A Guide to Dating Older Men

dating-older-menThis is an article about dating older men written from a woman’s perspective.

Oh, you want to date older men like Catherine Zeta Jones wooed Michael Douglas? Well, there is nothing wrong in that. Even Scarlett o’ Hara tried her best to win the heart and mind of a certain very dashing personality called Rhett Butler in an evergreen romance called Gone with the Wind. The delightfully humorous and breezy French romcom Priceless shows a delectable and stunningly gorgeous Audrey Tatou trying to romance men old enough to be her granddaddy.

Date Older Men: How to Attract Older Men towards You?

Why do some women love to date older men?

Well the reasons can be numerous! In Priceless as they showed, the character played by Audrey Tatou was a social climber, a gold digger par excellence who preyed on older men so that she could fulfill her desires of possessing designer gowns and shoes, diamond necklaces, ride in limos, rub shoulders with the glitterati and socialites and who’s who of the glamour world in posh hotels in the glamorous French Riviera!

You are right, gold digging is one of the main reasons why beautiful young nubile nymphets with their proverbially blonde hair well in place run after older men to date.

Another reason is the safety and security and financial stability that these old men enjoy. Madonna was right when she crooned material girl for women are material girls and most women crave for material security and stability as that makes life easier.

There are still other women who date older men because they find a father figure in such a person. These types of women suffer from an Electra complex and there are still more women who date older men because they genuinely love them, adore them and are not scared of societal rebuttal and sneering remarks.

Older men also love to flaunt a sexy young chick as their arm candy and glow in the accolades that their friends and peers shower on them.

Being with sexy young chicks makes old men feel younger, full of the vitality of youth and it guarantees these old men a lot of limelight during their twilight years.

Well whatever be the reason to date older men, there are a few strategies to hook these oldies which you need to know.

One is, these oldies won’t really fall for your body because they have had plenty of sex in their long life. So don’t turn sexuality into your piece de résistance for it won’t work. Rather try to be a beauty with brains who is caring, understanding towards her older partner. These oldies seek companionship, rather than sex, though sex will be mind blowing once you hit the sacks!

On top of everything, you have to be honest with your old guy if you want to date older men.

Astrology

In order to decide if you are compatible with your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife then you must first figure out each of your signs.  The chart below will help with that.

What?s Your Sign?

Your Birthday Your Sign
March 21st through April 20th Aries (Fire sign)

Numerology

Numerology is another way to decide birthday compatibility.  In order to decide whether you are compatible according to numerology, you need to first calculate your life path number.  You do this by reducing all the segments (day, month, year) of your birthday to single digit numbers and then reduce that number to a single digit. It is easiest to explain with example.

Say your birthday was: 11/8/1984

You would first add up the month:

1 + 1 =2

Then, add up the day:

In this case, you don?t have to add anything up.  Your single digit is 8.

Next, add up the year:

1 + 9 + 8+ 4 = 22

2 + 2 = 4

So, now that you have each segment reduced down to single digits you must add all of them up and reduce them to a single digit:

2 + 8 + 4 = 14

1 + 4 = 5

Your life path number in this example would be 4.

Once you have done this for you and your partner, check out the chart below to see if you are compatible.

How to Save Your Marriage

how to save your marriage

How do I save my marriage is a question that is asked more often than you may think.  If you are asking yourself this question lately then do not feel alone.  The truth is, most married couples go through slumps.

Sometimes, one of the people in the relationship has to step up and take the first steps to fix the problem.

Here are the 6 steps to save your marriage:

1. Admit that there is a problem!

The first step is simple.  Admit to yourself that there is something wrong.  Admit that you are unhappy and that your spouse more than likely is miserable, as well.  It can be very hard to admit to yourself, your partner or others close to you that your marriage is in trouble but until you do you have NO hope.  So say it out loud, right now:  WE ARE IN TROUBLE!

2.  Talk about the problem.

Address the problem with your partner.  Try to keep your cool and do not let the conversation escalate into an argument.  Tell them how you feel and LISTEN to how they feel.   Be respectful of their opinions, feelings and worries.  Have an open and honest conversation about what you each hope will change.

3.  See a counselor, pastor or other professional

If you are asking yourself, how to save tour marriage then you are probably past the point of fixing it on your own.  You two probably need help and there is no shame in that.  Marriage counseling is a great thing and can help you two to talk in a respectful and productive way.   Sometimes just having an unbiased mediator around will be incredibly helpful.

4.   Follow the advice of the professional

Walk in with an open mind and ask, ” How do I save my marriage”?  Whatever the professional says, you do.  You have to really do it, though.  You can?t fake it or just give a half effort.  You have to be ready to change and to be a better spouse.  The things that they ask you to do will probably not be easy but if your marriage is worth saving then you will do whatever it takes.

Work hard and you will reap the rewards.  Ignore the advice of the professional and you will stop wondering how to save your marriage and start wondering where to find a good lawyer.

5.   Keep up the hard work

The last step is possibly the hardest.  Keep up the hard work even when things are getting better.  It can be easy to fall back into bad habits once the relationship starts to improve.  Suddenly, you are ignoring them or taking them for granted or losing your temper? because you are back in your comfort zone.

You have to be willing to work hard.  Every day.  For the rest of your life.  If you aren?t ready for that type of work then you need to re-evaluate your priorities and decide if being married is worth it to you.

Saving your marriage will be hard work but it will be worth it in the long run.  Start by admitting that you need help, go get the help, take the commitment seriously and MAKE it work.  Don’t give up until you have done everything that you can.

There is no shame in admitting that your marriage is in trouble.  The only shame is in letting your relationship fall apart without taking steps to make it better.  How do you save your marriage?  The same way you do anything worth doing:  Long, hard, diligent work!

Numerology Compatibility

what is numerology?Numerology is a great way to explore yourself and others.  Numbers are used as symbols which correspond to many facets of your personality.  If you are wondering if you and your partner are compatible you can use numerology to get a full picture of your personalities and how they work together.

In order to decide if you and your partner are compatible according to numerology, you must first calculate your life path number.  In order to do so you must use addition to reduce your birth date numbers to single digits then add those together to create another single digit number.

Sound complicated?  It?s not!

If your birth date is December 12, 1970 then here is what you would do:

December 12, 1970 = 12/12/1970

Month (12): 1 + 2 = 3

Day (12): 1 + 2 = 3

Year (1970): 1 + 9 + 7 + 0 = 17, 1+ 7 = 8

Then add all of these 3 numbers together and reduce them to a single digit:  3 + 3+8 = 14 = 1+ 4 = 5

LIFE PATH NUMBER: 5

Once you have calculated yours and your partner?s life path numbers you are ready to analyze whether the two of you are great together or a match made in Hell.

Here is a quick synopsis of what type of personality each number represents:

1 = Aggressive, Independent and Confident
2 = Great Partner and Receptive

Premarital Counseling Questions Every Couple Should Discuss

Premarital CoupleGetting engaged and beginning to plan your wedding is, by far, one of the most exciting times in a person?s life.  It?s full of joy, fun and anticipation of the future.  If you?re engaged or thinking about getting engaged, then congratulations!

But, before you tie the knot (and tie yourself to someone else for LIFE) it is important to make sure you two are on the same page about some key aspects of life.  Premarital counseling (or pre-marriage counseling) is a great way to ensure that you are making the right choice for a life partner.

Topics like childbearing  financial planning, and long term goals are so important to a marriage but are rarely discussed before the leap is taken. This can lead to major problems later and may cause you to end up in divorce court.

So, in order to save yourself a lot of grief and misery in the long run, take time to discuss the following premarital counseling questions.  Once you have talked about them, bring them to a counselor who specializes in premarital counseling and let him or her help you sort out your feelings and/or concerns.

Premarital Counseling Questions:

Career

  • What are your expectations of yourself and your spouse in relation to career?
  • Do you expect to work and, if so, how much?  Do you expect your spouse to work and, if so,       how much?
  • Do you expect yourself or your spouse to be the breadwinner?
  • How do you feel about traditional gender roles?  (i.e. husband who works outside of the home and wife who stays home) Do you want traditional roles in your family or do you want a more modern family where all of the responsibilities are shared?
  • Do you plan to stay in the same career or is there a possibility that you will want to change careers at some point?  If so, do you want to go back to school?  What about your spouse?
  • Children
  • How many kids do you want?
  • At what age do you want to have kids?
  • What goals do you want to achieve before having children? (Do you want to travel, save a certain amount of money, pay off credit cards, buy a home or finish graduate school for instance?)
  • What are your feelings about adoption?
  • What are your feelings about foster children?
  • How were you raised?  What would you do the same?  What would you do differently?
  • How do you plan to raise your children?  What type of discipline do you plan to use?  Do you want to raise them with religion?  If so, what religion?
  • Do you want them educated in private or public schools?

Finances

  • How much money do you make per year?
  • Do you consider yourself a spender or a saver?
  • Is money important to you?  Would you rather work more hours for more money or have more free time and less money?
  • Do you currently have debt?  How much?
  • What are your financial priorities and goals?  (Do you want to buy a house within a certain number of years?  Do you hope to save a certain amount of money per month toward retirement?  Do you want to retire at a specific age?)

Religion

  • Are you religious?  How important is religion to your life?
  • Does it bother if your spouse?s beliefs are not the same?
  • Are your children going to be expected to be religious, as well?
  • Can you compromise about certain aspects of your religious life?  Are there some things that are non-negotiable?

Social Life

  • How often do you currently go out?  Do you expect to continue this when married?  Or will your social life pick up or slow down once married?
  • Do you enjoy staying in?
  • How important are your friends to you?
  • Do you enjoy hosting parties?

This is just the beginning of the many questions you should ask and the conversations you should have before getting married.  These premarital counseling questions will more than likely open up the flood gates and more questions will come up.  Just keep letting the conversation flow and bring any concerns to a counselor for help.

Communication is key to any relationship!

Astrology and Compatibility

Everyone has heard the old line, ?What?s your sign??  While it is often used jokingly, there are many people who believe you can find a compatible partner based on his or her birth date and astrological sign.  Compatibility with a partner is based on many factors.  Many people believe that astrology is a very important one.

astrology

Astrology has to do with drawing connections between planetary positions and events here on Earth.  Some people believe all things are correlated to astrological phenomena and, therefore, make decisions based on horoscopes.  It is understandable, then, why so many people want to know if they?re picking the right partner based on his or her zodiac sign.  Astrology compatibility is complex and fascinating.

Here?s a crash course in the basics:

There are four elements (earth, air, fire and water) and every sign of the zodiac is correlated to one.

-          Fire signs: Sagit­tar­ius, Leo, Aries

-          Air signs: Gem­ini, Aquar­ius, Libra

-          Earth signs: Tau­rus, Capri­corn, Virgo

-          Water signs: Pisces, Can­cer, Scorpio

The best matches are the ones that are between the same element.  Complementary elements are also considered good matches.  Fire and Air are complementary as are Earth and Water.  For example, if you are a Sagittarius then as a Fire sign you are most compatible with the other fire signs: Leo and Aries.  You are complementary with Gemini, Aquarius and Libra, as well.  Therefore, your best matches would be one of those 5 signs.

There is a bit more to it and it can get confusing and complicated if you are not an astrologer.  Luckily, all you have to do is take a peek at the charts below to get the answers you are looking for. First locate your birthday (and your partner?s) on the first chart and then take a look at the horoscope compatibility chart below!
