Dating younger guys benefits

So that’s my experience of being married to a man with kids, and dating men without them.

We were happy for a decade (before we started hating each other). Organising weekends on and off, joint Christmas dinners, and school holidays.

I loved doing it, and made a big deal of it, because I wanted the exes to know I was looking after their kids when they were with us – no wonder those women were usually annoyed with me.

The rest of my team were married, living with someone, or dating, so they all made up fake personas.

I was single, and thought, “Well, I have to do this anyway, so why don’t I do it for real? I got an avalanche of responses, and to my surprise, the majority of them were from younger men. ” and I’ve been very happily dating younger men ever since. I have never wanted to be married, I’ve never wanted children, and I don’t want to be in a relationship in the conventional sense.

Thank f*ck none of them have ever been here to witness my standard TOTAL SWEARFEST MELTDOWNS on a school morning.

I’ve found younger dudes to be more available, and flexible with their spare time, because they have less family commitments than guys who are parents. (Yes, that’s my discrete way of mentioning booty calls.) But their relative freedom doesn’t mean they spend more time with me – gah, who wants that?! Years ago, one of them taught me to use the eggplant emoji.

Like Snezana Markoski and Alex Nation, last night Bachelorette contestant Stu Laundy, separated father of four, joined the ranks of parent participants whose “grown up” status has proven irresistible to someone who’s ready for a family. (I won’t call myself a ‘MILF’ – even though it’s in the title of my sex tape. I liked that he was sensible, established and stable.

Which is also why I get how now, as a divorced mum, younger guys find that attractive. I was nineteen when I met my ex-husband, who was twenty-one years older than me, and already a father of two.

The ones I’ve met are real-life adults, doing adult things like having careers and buying property.

In fact, one of them was my twenty-six-year-old landlord.

I’m not saying this is what it would be like being married to all DILFs – but in my experience, with the choices I made, it was intense. So, the right decision for me, and for my son, was to not risk getting involved with a man with kids until I took some breathing space.
