'I'm attracted to older guys'

All my three exes and my current guy are on the wrong side of 40. Though I am aware of the fact that I don’t have a future with them, I keep getting involved with them. I find younger men way too immature.

Dear Debita,
There’s nothing wrong in falling for an older guy or even marrying one. There are many guys out there whose wives are over a decade younger to them. In general, women mature faster than men. Your fascination for older men probably stems from the fact that they have the same level of maturity and goals as in your life. Younger men are more likely to be selfish and self-centered when it comes to relationships. Older guys have experience taking care of a woman’s needs. You belong to this group of women who look for a father-like figure in their partner.
