What do you think of ladies dating older fellas?

Is age just a number? Is love really all that matters? If you answer these questions in the affirmative, then why do you still shake your head when you see a gorgeous 20-something woman with an older guy?

We admit, we're as much conflicted as you are. And we're also prone to stereotyping and judging people whose names we don't even know—all we know is she's better off with us than Lolo Tanders / Tito Tanders. But we don't want to be that judgey a-hole anymore, so we asked around for the possible reasons why some girls go for older dudes.

It turns out they're just being "smart"—but it's not what you're thinking. Well, not entirely...


1)   HE'S FINANCIALLY STABLE

No, she isn't a gold digger. It's called being practical. Everything in this world becomes more expensive day by day. So, why will she choose to go out with someone who needs to work his ass off very hard to earn something which isn't even enough for him if there's someone who can give the world to her?

2)   HE'S MATURED

According to a study, girls mature 10 years earlier than men. So don't be surprised if she left you for an older man because that guy probably thinks and acts in a way that pleases her. He doesn't make jokes that hurt her feelings. He won't force her to hang out with people she doesn't like. Instead, he invites her to go somewhere interesting.

3)   HE'S DONE BEING A PLAYER

He's ready to go down on one knee.

4)   HE ACCEPTS THE WAY SHE IS

Her mistakes in the past aren't a big deal for him. And he doesn't give a damn about the way she dresses. But it's not because he doesn't care. He just doesn't want to change her because he's learned to believe that that's what love is about—accepting not changing.

5)   HE'S GOT BETTER MANNERS

Do you believe that “Hindi na uso ang gentleman?” She likes this aging fella waaay better than you because he still has old school manners. He knows the importance of pulling out a chair for her on dates, and he holds the door open when she enters a building. Simple things can make such a big difference. For instance, not doing this:

6)   HE PROVIDES MORE TIME

Gone are the days when all of his time is devoted to his friends. He uses his spare time to go hang out with his partner rather than go bar-hopping.

7)   HE'S NOT CAUGHT UP WITH APPS

Know what? It really pisses her off when you're too busy protecting your damn Clash of Clans village and surfing through Facebook rather than spending quality time with her. The older generation isn't too hooked on their smartphones. When he says he wants some time with her, he really means it.

8)   HE COMMUNICATES VERY WELL

He doesn't hesitate to let her know what’s on his mind, and he doesn't mind showing how he really feels about situations even if it means crying. Younger men often hold back their feelings because they think they're supposed to be macho, when it's actually the key to a more meaningful relationship.

9)   HE'S GOT GOOD PERSPECTIVE

This guy has been through a lot of things. And it's such a relief to listen to his stories especially during the most difficult times.

10)   HE'S BETTER IN BED

No woman likes to be bored in the sack. With all of his experiences, he surely knows how to satisfy her. And he also knows there's a lot more to do in the bedroom than just regular intercourse. Sure, you might last longer and be capable of doing it more often, but ask yourself this: After you're through, does she ask you for more or does she tell you "That was f*cking awesome"?
