Dating 3 years older woman
My rule of thumb is, if the person im with could technicaly have concieved a child the same as me then they are too old and if I, by age, could have concieved a child the same age as the younger prospect then he is to young. Some people in excellent health are biologically 10 years younger than their average age peers. Assuming two adults, the older person's age, divided by 2, plus 7.
That means a man cannot be older then 12 years or younger then 12 years. I often find the people saying age is just a number to be somewhat frilly nilly. But i do feel there should be some guidelines when it comes to age differences. And some are easily 10 years older than their actual age, especially if they are overweight, smoke, drink, don't exercise, and eat crap. If the younger party in question is below that age, walk away.
It sucks when a woman is in her mid-late 40s and you are all ready to go and she has no interest.
Earlier on life's conveyer belt, the typical 65-year-old man has at least one significant health issue.
If he's married to a 60 year-old woman, he's married to someone who, on average, is physiologically ten years younger and thus likely healthier and more vigorous, physically and mentally.
If you'd feel more comfortable growing old with someone in similar shape to you, consider an older woman.
There would be less financial burden at those ages, if you could find a woman with a job and that knows how to save and is not rapt up in consumerism. And I'm not sure which decade in the stone age you're living in ,considering women are catching up and even excelling in many of the same arenas as men. But hormones also matter and so by picking a wife whose hormones are in sync, you have a better chance of lifetime sexual compatibility.
The problem is the older they are, the quicker they hit their sexual peak and the quicker they start declining.
In fact, as argued above, there's reason to believe you'll be happier with an older woman.
