Recently, I stumbled upon a post from Goody Feed on 10 Valid Reasons Why an “Uncle” Boyfriend is the Best Boyfriend Ever, which I presumed was either written by an uncle or a young girl who is dating an uncle. I do agree with some of its contents, but let’s for once put ourselves on the opposing side and think about the cons of dating an uncle.
Inspired by that article, I have then come out with 10 Reasons Why You Should Never Date Older Men, or rather, 10 Valid Reasons Why an “Uncle” Boyfriend is the Worse Boyfriend Ever:
1. You are both at different stages of life
He is at the peak of his career path, whereas you are still struggling to climb up that corporate ladder. It won't be as easy to comprehend each other's priorities as compared to couples who are working together towards the same goal at the same stage of life.
2. His superiority complex would surface when faced with decision-making situations
For the fact that he has lived a longer life than you, he would always think he is right hence would expect you to do it his way all the time.
3. He has dated way too many girls than you did men
He is used to the fact that girls come and go. And to him, you are no exception.
4. You did not go through the toughest time of life with him
You weren't there for him when he struggled to build his career. And now that everything is stable, it is as if you have been sent from hell to crush it.
5. He wants kids, while you want to travel the world
Considering his age, he could be eager to start a family whereas you want to take your time to enjoy your sweet honeymoon before reality kicks in. Something major to compromise!
6. Communication barrier with your friends
Sooner or later, you will start dreading having him and your friends together under one roof, because there is absolutely no common topic at all! To him, they are a bunch of clueless kids who have yet to figure out on the reality of life.
7. You risk getting judgmental stares from the public
Oh look, that girl must have found herself a sugar daddy! Otherwise, which young girl in her right mind would want to date someone old and frail?
8. He would retire before your kids barely graduated from college
That is, unless you date someone who is self-employed and has a small reserve of wealth. How long can your savings continue to support your kids after his source of income comes to a halt?
9. He will die sooner than you
Why prepare yourself for heartbreak when you can choose to marry a young bloke and grow old together?
10. Last but not least, there must be an obvious reason why he is still single
Is he afraid of commitment? Is he the type who secretly never wants to get married? Or is he a psychopath? Be careful what you're getting yourself into :/
After reading the 10 reasons above, do you still think it is a good idea to be dating an old man? Teehee.
For a side note, a few OOTD photos from last weekend.
