Secretly dating an older man
If this hasn’t been arranged or suggested quickly, women will worry that the guy didn’t actually like them and will get disheartened.From a man’s point of view, they do not see the urgency in arranging a second date – they prefer to wait and play it cool so they don’t come across too keen.Women need to remember that a man’s text is not a good indicator of how he is feeling and men need consider women’s penchant for overanalysis when contacting them.Although it might seem outdated in the modern world, to stop any confusion, I suggest men pick up the phone and have a conversation instead – women will appreciate the extra effort and men get to avoid texting back and forth. To help women out, men should take some of the stress out of the situation by choosing the wine, instigating whether to have food early on and offering to pay the bill (at least on the first date).Working as a relationship psychologist and global director of elite introductions agency Berkeley International means I work closely with both sexes to discuss what they look for in a partner, their feelings about dating and thoughts on the dates they have been on.What is abundantly clear is that women and men are programmed very differently and this is particularly obvious when they date.If the date has gone well, women want to show off and, if the date didn’t live up to expectations, they seek validation from their friends that he was the problem, not them.Men, on the other hand, do not like to share as many date details on their group Whats App.
When it comes to dating, the well-worn phrase "men are from Mars, women are from Venus" rings true.Convenience is key for men – they might make the effort to begin with but once a routine is established, they’ll want a partner near to them who is only a short journey away.Therefore, in some instances, geography can play a part on how the relationship progresses.
