Many women who have reached an above-average level of success in their careers grew up in a time when there weren’t that many women in positions of leadership or authority.
What is also powerfully influential are the ever increasing and empowering lead roles created for women in movies, on TV, and through infinite social media forums.
Through the years many have watched, or already understood their mothers and sisters to have a powerful say in how they regard women.
Remember that no matter their success in the outside world, almost every woman, and person, wishes to feel adored and appreciated.
Demonstrate your interest by planning creative dates and offering compelling and interesting conversation.
For me to consider pursuing an 18 year old she'd have to be more or less perfect for me in every way.
You can have a relationship with a person of any age, but maybe you don’t know what you’re looking for or you notice the dates that feel most comfortable or promising are with guys that are younger than you.
This helps to break down the barriers that may exist if you are both at different points in your careers and life.
You would not be spending time pursuing older women if you felt threatened or were experiencing reverse age-stereotyping.
Because many women work full-time and raise families it enables men who have grown up with this norm to feel less threatened by female success.
