The phenomenon of men dating younger women is depicted everywhere in pop culture. Hollywood movies frequently cast much older male actors to star alongside young actresses, and the same actors are often snapped by paparazzi dating much younger women in real life. Male singers have long referenced younger women in songs with epithets like “baby” and “little girl” and now it’s increasingly common for women to refer to their sexual partners as “daddy”. The idea that it’s normal and natural for men to date women five, 10, 15 or even 20 years younger than them is pretty firmly culturally ingrained at this point. However, it’s worth taking a second look at whether this phenomenon should continue to be taken for granted. There are certain difficulties that accompany every relationship with a large age gap, but in the case of men dating younger women, there’s also a tricky power dynamic that needs to be considered. So, if you’re thinking about dating a younger woman, here are five things you should bear in mind before doing so: The Power Dynamic Is Skewed “Power dynamic” is a term that recognizes that power in social relationships can come from many sources: Speaking in general terms, older people have more social power than younger people, and, in a variety of demonstrable ways and despite measurable progress in this area, men have more power than women.

This woman sounds like an absolute piece of garbage….. Wally I just recently ended a 2 year relationship with a woman that has 3 kids. But hers were just downright out of control. They would fight constantly and trash the house. They had little discipline and playtime seemed to be the focus. It sucks real bad because I loved her very much and we had great chemistry and shared similar interests and goals.
I miss her terribly but I know it could never work. I had this conversation recently with a young mother and she explained that the lack of discipline thing can be attributed to a number of things. What I mean is that there are too many variables to even pinpoint why she let them turn into that but personally I think you did the right thing. I mean 3 is a lot for a man to inherit and you did 2 years!!! Anyway, keep your head up Wally and move on having used this as a learning experience.
You never know about the kids until you get to experience them with their mom in their own environment. I wish you luck in the dating pool, find ground soon or wait 13 years and reclaim your lady that was a joke.
