4 Disadvantages Of Dating A Younger Man In Nigeria by dammy13(m): 7:01am On Feb 26, 2017
If there's anything everyone can agree on, it's that times are changing, and the things that were once frowned upon have now become the norm.

Where it was once unimaginable for women to ask men out, or declare sexual interest in them first, they are now being encouraged to get their game on.

To some extent, the ice-cold Nigerian attitude towards women dating younger men has begun to thaw, but there still seems to be a long way before the idea flows into all cultures and becomes truly mainstream.

Experience has shown that there are great advantages when women disregard age » and go for younger men they love; but of course, because a coin always has two sides, here are some disadvantages of dating younger men.

1. Mother-in-laws
Many Nigerian families still frown on sons who decide to marry older women and that discontent and disapproval is always more vocal from the mothers.

If a survey of Nigerian mothers is conducted, the answers gotten will very likely confirm this.

2. People will talk
Of course, far too many people are still yet to come to terms with the idea of older men and younger woman genuinely falling in love, so they still assume that one of the partners has an ulterior motive for deciding to be with the other.

Due to this, people will still raise eyebrows and have misinformed opinion » s about couples who ride against the relationship tide and date despite their age difference.

3. Relationship problems might get blamed on the age difference
Very likely, when issues appear in the relationship, one of the partners will link it to the age difference and where they should be communicating on solving the real relationship issues, they'll be struggling with the bitterness that tend to come from saying hurtful things about age.

4. Separate ideas of fun
Especially when the woman is significantly older than the man, one problem the couple might face is separate definition of fun.

Because of their nature and age, younger men tend to be really bouncy, adventurous and full of life, and this could be a bit of a problem in the relationship.

That is if you allow people interfere in your relationship.

Love and mutual understanding is all that matters,my friend is dating someone she is 3 years older than and theirs is the best relationship I've seen so far.

Yeah,she had doubts too,for a year she refused to date him,but he won't back down.
The impact he has made in her life,none of her Exes has done that,I mean,the love is so strong,makes the rest of us jealous.
She has a smallish stature,so you won't even know,its working for them, and they are looking forward to him finishing service this year,so they can get married grin
The fact that she looks younger than her age makes it even more fun...

If she's the type who's older than her age or a complimentary of her age, I wouldn't have approve of this but heck, heck, she's 25year old looking 18...

Most ladies should learn from this tho. I once approach a lady who is older than me by just 2weaks. You know what she said,;I don't want people to call me your mother. Tho I look younger than my age
