Men dating relationships
They were introduced by Sutherland’s sister, who was one of Wipp’s law school classmates, at a beachside barbecue.Wipp was immediately attracted to Sutherland’s youthful energy, which was a far cry from the cynical guys closer to her age.
“[Younger men] don’t have the weight of the world [on their shoulders] yet.” But initially, Wipp held off on dating Sutherland because she was wary of the numbers on his driver’s license. I really had a mental struggle dating someone younger than me,” she says.It is easy to see only the positive in the other person and completely ignore any warning signs. It would be foolish to date someone and not even consider the possible outcomes.Not only would it be foolish, but downright selfish.When it came to finding love in New York, Amber Soletti, a 42-year-old who lives in the West Village, had no luck dating older guys or men her own age.While they were “well-established and articulate,” she wasn’t physically attracted to them and found they had too many issues.New French President Emmanuel Macron, 39, has a wife, Brigitte, who is 24 years his senior, while supermodel Heidi Klum, 43, has been dating art dealer Vito Schnabel, 30, for more than three years.
Actress Gabrielle Union, 44, and her husband, Chicago Bulls player Dwyane Wade, 35, are often lauded as a power couple. “Older successful men are used to being in control of a woman, and that doesn’t sit well with modern women,” says Susan Winter, co-author of the book “Older Women, Younger Men: New Options for Love and Romance.” “Younger men have grown up with working women and have worked for female bosses, so they’re more likely to treat women equally.” Some in these relationships agree.
“Even with the age gap, I’ve never quite met anyone like him,” she says.
"Always waiting for the guy to initiate contact is annoying to most men," says Harold, 35.
“Everybody thought this was a little phase, that I was just having a crisis.” But friends and family came around to accepting the couple after they’d been dating for a year and it became clear that Sutherland had serious intentions.
In April 2010, they had an intimate beachside wedding in Hawaii, and they now have a 6-year-old son, Marek.
So, six years ago, she started dating studs in their 20s and 30s — and she hasn’t looked back.
