Tired of meeting BOYS who tell me what I want to hear, make and break promises, and aren’t ready for something serious.(This woman is voicing her opinion and shows her personality early on. )) You: Honest, mature, gentleman, emotionally, mentally, financially secure (“financially secure” is a bad move in a dating profile because it’s an immediate red flag to a guy that he might be dealing with a materialistic woman.) Knows how to treat a lady, ready for a long term relationship (this would sound a bit too eager or even desperate to most guys. I live on the East Coast and travel to West every week for work. (This would make the reader believe that she is not looking for anyone special, but just someone to kill time with and subdue her loneliness).While formula’s seem as though they have some kind of scientific credence, the truth is that two resonant souls will find each other (regardless of their ages).” Whether there are any rules we should follow when looking for a potential mate, Winter said, “Rules no longer apply - there are no rules in love except to follow your heart.” Cute.“Socially speaking in the western world, women have been granted liberty to unite with men five to 15 years older without anyone batting an eye.Try it at whatever age you like, and you will find it works very well, taking for granted all the while that, after all, a man as well as a woman is the age that he looks and feels.” Diminishing his credibility, in the next paragraph, O’Rell gives readers the advice: “Never marry a woman richer than you, or one taller than you, or one older than you.” So despite the approval and support from De Alto, the rule originally repeated by O’Rell seems significantly outdated - in real life, but especially in the anything-goes world of celebrity dating.While some beliefs may stand the test of time, this old-fashioned dating rule doesn’t appear to be one of them.
Mid-century, the reason for the elevated age gap would've been economic. Their husband was their access to social standing and economic stability.According to De Alto, “It is still a decent rule of thumb to set a boundary of a minimum age.While age is truly just a number, successful significant relationships are based on mutual understanding and connection.” She continued, “I’ve seen a few anomalies where a large age gap didn’t get in the way of a lasting connection, but often times, it can lead to frustrations and the end of a relationship.She said, “one reason why this may have endured is because men are generally more attracted to younger women and would like a rule that makes them feel it is acceptable to date younger.” So basically men are to blame.But for relationship expert Rachel De Alto, the old rule is pretty helpful in determining suitable age differences.
