Cece even tells Jess as she's first considering dating Russell (the one and only Fancypants) that "he intimidates you because you wouldn't have to take care of him, he'd take care of you."DON' T make your man feel older than he actually is (or date yourself).

DO be lovey dovey, but DON' T nickname him something based on his age (Fancypants is cool, though).
Does any man really like to be called your Sexy Silver Fox?

And, of course, I’m only sharing from my limited experience. Getting older is as easy as puddin’ pie because in your circle?
That said; the positives of marrying someone older have been rapidly lost in a world where “young love” is often touted as the best kind. You’ll always be the “young one.”After all, she’s old, too.
