Your article broke down this dynamic get very well. I have also been against dating significantly older guys. When my friend I were 24, this 48 year old man starting dating her. Within 2 weeks he got an engagement ring. I told her I did not approve and he was mad at me and said I was a hater. He used to give her money and treat her like a sugar baby. I’m glad she left him. These relationships are so problematic.
