Dating an older man daddy issues
I think with counselling you can find out if you are truly attracted to older men or you are just making these choices because of something your dad did /didnt do.
This is the part that concerns me - in every other relationship I have been in I normally am the headstrong one. The imbalance of power has everything to do with it and you both slipping into 'child' and 'parent' roles has everything to do with it - unless you are a person who likes to be completely controlled.
What do you think of when you think about “daddy issues”? They think that daddy issues are something that only women on poles have.
But that’s not true, and daddy issues are much more common than people want to admit.
My friends dad left her mum for his (then) 19 year old secretary who my friend was at school with (nice).
Older men can give you the attention and affection you’ve always craved.Like some women, you might latch onto one long-term serious relationship after another, seeking stability. The men you date don’t even have to be good men – in fact, some of them might be distant or abusive, like a bad father – but all that matters is that you never have to learn how to love yourself. A woman who plays into men’s desires finds herself coveted and showered with attention, if only for one night.Sadly, you might be attracting jerks who are just using you for sex, and if you begin to associate sex with self-worth and control, you’ll get trapped in a cycle.He could have walked around without ever expressing affection for you or interest in your life.As a result, you might be so insecure that you constantly need your partner to reassure you that yes, you are loved.
