DO treat the relationship the same as you would with a guy your own age.
There's already enough pressure when it comes to dating, why add more stress and think about the age thing if you really like this dude?
During one scene, Nick (who else has a major crush on him??
) starts talking to a girl in college who, he realizes, "doesn't know what is." For your date with an older gent: as cool as it is, not everyone needs to know that you were part of an NSYNC fan club (cough cough).
But, seriously, if they ever do a reunion tour J is SO coming with me.
Russell confesses he hasn't dated since 1989 and Jess replies, "That was the year I learned to use the toaster by myself." Not so hot.
DO be lovey dovey, but DON' T nickname him something based on his age (Fancypants is cool, though).
Does any man really like to be called your Sexy Silver Fox?Although, I call J "Kid" in this super-cute, ironic way. Whether that's a mature twenty-something, an immature thirty-something, or a quirky lady living with three dudes like Jess.Are you dating an older fellow or thinking about dipping your toes into that more mature water? DON' T point out how "cute" his first grey chest hair is (OOPS). With age (often) comes maturity and chivalry—take advantage!Well, my dears, you've come to the right place. Or, in Jess's (Zooey Deschanel's character, for those of you who aren't fans yet) case, don't ask about his health: "How's your prostate? Cece even tells Jess as she's first considering dating Russell (the one and only Fancypants) that "he intimidates you because you wouldn't have to take care of him, he'd take care of you."DON' T make your man feel older than he actually is (or date yourself). And I've added a couple of my own tips for good measure, since I am the younger woman and all. But I've been watching and compiled a list of DOs and DON' Ts from Jess's experience dating the sophisticated Dermot Mulroney as Fancypants, who's a whopping twelve years older.
