Many older men have a preference for younger women and this often stems from a desire to remain youthful. Most older men have no issues with a considerable age gap and will consider dating women half their age or younger.
If you’re attracted to the mature man flirting with an older man couldn’t be easier. He is likely to have plenty of flirting, dating and relationship experience and will be happy to make the connection easy for you. All you have to decide is whether or not you are interested in exploring a connection.
The Attraction Factor
Many younger women experience some level of physical attraction towards an older man at some point in their life. For some women it’s simply a passing phase, whilst for others it becomes a personal preference. To these women, the older man has a lot more to offer than his more youthful rival.
An older man is at a different stage in life. He knows exactly what he wants, whilst you’re still trying to figure out what you don’t want. There is likely to be a longer list of things you do not have in common, as opposed to experiences that you do. When it comes to flirting with an older man though the differences between you are irrelevant.
Act Your Age
When you’re flirting with an older man it would be foolish not to take the best advantage of your primary asset – your youth. After all, from his perspective this is one of your most attractive qualities.
Acting your age means being yourself. When you’re flirting with an older man you don’t need to pretend to know about things you don’t know about. You know plenty of stuff already so use your knowledge to engage him in fun and friendly conversation. If you’re worried about getting out of your depth concentrate on asking him questions about himself.
Use Eye Contact
Use eye contact to build rapport and to establish a connection. Hold his gaze a little longer than usual to let him know that you’re interested in getting to know him on a more intimate level. Follow his lead when it comes to increasing the flirting intensity. He has far more experience than you.
Use Subtle Touch
Gentle and soft touches allow you to explore a physical connection. Accidentally brushing your hand against his hand or arm, whilst you engage him in conversation, gives you an opportunity to gauge how open he is to moving things further.
Never Rely On Your Youth
Whilst your youth is attractive to him relying on your looks will never get you beyond the flirting stage. He appreciates that you’re a younger woman and will gladly take the lead in building a connection with you. Don’t use this as an excuse to let him do all of the flirting work though. Building a connection requires input from both interested parties. Show your maturity by taking responsibility for your flirting actions.
To flirt with confidence it is important that you’re dressed in an outfit that is comfortable and stylish and creates a positive and lasting impression. Although he may be attracted to your youthful appearance do consider the age gap when you’re dressing to impress. Wearing overtly fashionable clothes that show off your young fashion sense will only highlight the age gap between you, in not such a flattering way. If you want to make a positive impression chose your outfit with care. Think classy and seductive, instead of obvious and trendy.
See The Man, Not His Age
If the age gap is considerable there are certain things that you can safely assume, without having to ask him. He is likely to make more money than you, be more comfortable with himself and quite possibly he is more confident in his flirting ability. Unless the age difference comes up in conversation, aim to focus on getting to know him. What his status represents is irrelevant.
He may ask you why you prefer older men, or he may not have the need to know. Flirt and converse with him in the same way that you would with a man who is your age. Once you become more comfortable with each other you will have an opportunity to ask more personal and direct questions. At the early flirting stage it is always best to keep the conversation light, friendly and fun.
Regardless of age, men are naturally drawn to women who are confident. When flirting with an older man this confidence is displayed in the way in which you engage him in conversation, whilst gradually turning up the flirting intensity. A confident woman knows how to use eye contact, subtle touch and body language to get her message across. To show your intention playfully touch his arm as you talk to him, expose your neck and subtly lick your lips to get his imagination fired up.
