Awkward Moments Yes, all relationships have them, but in relationships where the age gap is significant, they appear more often than not.
The main difference between an older man dating a younger woman is topics of conversation.

Thus women who don't have kids in their early 30s are more than likely thinking about kids and having them quick as oppose to a guy who's 26 and is more than able to provide the goods well into his 40s.
