I had a normal childhood, but I have been living in the “adult world” since I was a kid. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way.
The only thing probably missing in my life is a partner, a published book and an owned property… To elaborate even further, I’m an only child, and growing up, I never had many close friends. I was teased and picked on a lot from the kids at school. I guess that’s where I began the attraction for the older man type, and it used to freak my mother out.
Don’t let this kind of distorted thinking get in the way of meeting someone really great.
Some of the kindest, strongest and most committed men I know are short.
What about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were 16 years apart when they were married?The message many women send short men goes something like this: Yeah, sorry, but nothing you could say or do could ever give you a chance with me. For those of you who insist that you’re not attracted to short men, you should, at least, try to have a good reason why you’re not.Men and women both fall prey to the (remarkably persistent) myth that sexual attraction works on auto-pilot, as if we are all preprogrammed to be attracted to the ones who captivate our attention. The type of person you’re attracted to depends largely on your beliefs. My client, Alexis, comes from the most machismo family I can imagine, full of firefighters, Marines, and gobs of Old Spice. In Alexis’ family, she was the only daughter and the men in her family were brawny and tough.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.Sexual attraction largely derives from your upbringing.
