Dating an older man with a child
I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:– They're not ambitious enough, or they don't have a go-getter attitude.– They're not financially stable.– They still want to date around.– They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.– They don't have their sh*t together.I'm not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn't been fulfilling for me.
However, you can rest assured that a man who has taken the responsibility of caring for his child/children has good qualities like commitment, responsibility, and love for his kids.I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.I still get the common response from my friends: “He's too old for you! ” I've also had a few people in my life suggest that I do it because I am a “gold digger.”So, the broad answer is this: To clarify, I'm not dating older men because I am a “gold digger.” It's more important for me to pull my own weight and be financially stable.If this continues to happen, the child will be hurt as well as the father.Time for intimacy may be replaced by time spent together with the children. Remember: in actuality you’re dating the entire family, not just the guy.Keep the relationship between the two of you, and when marriage becomes a consideration, have him introduce you to the kids.

But, it's not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.
The May-December relationship is still a controversial issue with some people but not with others.
Some women spend most of their lives dating older men and often end up marrying one. Traditionally it is common for women to date men a few years their senior because they are more mature then men their own age.
