Starting with the negative: we were at different life stages when we met.

I was basically fresh out of university and in my first job, but with no real master plan for my life or career. He had been in a band for several years, gone to university as a mature student and had also progressed quite far in his chosen career.

Family members and friends could also have questions about your motives behind dating an older man.

Dating an older man could be viewed as a cry for attention by the people closest to you.

I wasn't even looking for a serious relationship but was, to use a cliche, swept off my feet when I met my husband. He had very clear and definite ideas about what he wanted next: that was a serious relationship, and to build a business of his own.

At 31, he was very career focussed and quite serious.

A recent survey suggests that men irrespective of their age want to date women in their mid 20s.

If the findings of the survey are to be believed, even older men in their 40s, 50s, or 60s prefer to date women much younger than them.

While everything about such relationships is not good, they are not entirely bad either.As girls reach the age of 18 and dive into the adult dating pool, many find that older men tend to strike their fancy more than guys their age.Whether a man is 15 or more years older -- or the age difference is only a few years -- negative factors may play a role in the success or failure of the relationship.This might be the perfect question for me to answer.There are 7.5 years between my husband and I, and when we met, I was 23 and he was 31.
