Adele, life is so diverse and multifaceted. I had a girlfriend. Then she was 18 years old, and she was worried that she liked only someone under forty. It was just continuous suffering and tears. But that was temporary, everything changed ... At the age of 30, she married a twenty-year-old, bore him two children, and everything is fine; live together for thirteen years. Therefore, wherever it magnetizes, stretch there. Don't worry, just remember that tastes may one day change by themselves.
Why treat it ??? ... And if you treat then write to me soon. I look fifteen years younger than my years, while suffering from typical old-man phenomena. Just a walking panacea for this kind of sexual deviations)))
Of course, first of all, as already said here, it is necessary to treat what hurts. That is, if you are able to build viable relationships with "older men", and are mentally prepared for the costs (different circles of communication for you and your partner, different health conditions for you and your partner by age, the likelihood that you will not need to build relationships only with him, but also with his first family, etc.), then why not.
Secondly, it is stereotypically believed that a woman's persistent interest in "older men" may indicate two things: 1. a painful, cold, unsatisfactory relationship with your father figure (or the man who played her role in your family); 2. intimophobia, that is, avoidance of contact and emotional intimacy - since it is implied that a partner from a different age group will always be at a greater distance, more inaccessible and incomprehensible than a peer.
Both of these cannot be manifested in life by only interest in older men, if these problems exist, then they are manifested in something else. As a rule, they have rather deep roots and require detailed and lengthy study and work. However, intimophobia can be just age-related - if you yourself are not yet mentally ready for a relationship and are just forming your taste and criteria for choosing partners. Then after a few years it may go away on its own.
Is it necessary to treat it? Just live and build relationships with those you like. At least 10 years younger, at least 20 years older ... I don't think there is any problem with that. Just accept your taste and that's it.
Dear Adele, does this bother you so much?
What's wrong with being attracted to older men? They are (as a rule) stronger on their feet, have more life experience than younger people, and indeed ...
My father is 18 years older than my mother. My boyfriend (already ex) is 9 years older than me. And what's wrong with that?
If you are comfortable with men older than you, then be happy and do not fill your head with nonsense.
