this post is specially dedicated to ZY..
so couple of years back i used to date this guy thats older than me, erm.. well you can say that he has everything you want in potential bf and that he has made me raise my criterias in looking for a bf after him.. so anyway.. he was 7 years older...
so things to expect in an older guy in a student's point of view:
1. he is more experience
2. he is career driven and financially stable
3. he is romantic
4. he is mature
5. he is someone you feel secure with
but thats not always the case..
1. experience is more of a qualitative thing, yes they may that: "yea older people is more experience(in everyway including sex)" but they are also capable in tricking you to have sex and then leave you after that with the same kinda experience..
some still virgin at the age of 30, so how? very experience meh?... neh...
2. career driven and financially stable?
thats not always the case, you will often get customer service exec la.. admins staffs la etc.. IT execs are a hell lot.. haha.. lets just not go there.. those who are really financially stable is either taken or straight! lol
not always the case, how can you ask a shy guy to be romantic? its another subjective thing.. and romantic on its own is define in many different ways too! you may think that flowers and fancy meal is romantic, but some thinks that romantic = popping corn and enjoying a movie at home.. to some it might be hiking and jungle tracking.. lol..
he could be more childish than you! remember! lol
if youre a bottom, you will tend to find someone bigger than you.. but if youre a 6 footer like me its gonna be difficult to find a top thats taller than you and fits your criteria, and i dont like to spend the rest of my life with an angmo and asians are generally shorter than me so its gonna be a hell difficult huh..
the moral of the story is...
screw your expectations...
as long as youre happy, then just do what you enjoy happy doing.. as long as you like him and he likes you, you dont have to care what other people say.. he doesnt have to be the most handsome guy on earth.. but to you he will always be.. :)
