But, it’s not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.
In fact, a Boston Globe report went a step further to chart Clooney’s age difference history with previous girlfriends, the average being 9.73 years.
There's probably a reason no woman his age wants to date him. Defending your relationship will frequently ruin your friendships.So let me just list a few more good reasons to even consider dating a guy a couple of years older than you…We are all modern, educated women with our own money and we need a man that can keep up with our tempo.“Behind every great man is an even greater woman”, don’t forget that ladies.It's not super-sweet and romantic of him when he buys you beer and/or gets you a fake.If you're an inexperienced drinker who feels it after 2 bottles of Mike's Hard, that benefits 3.What about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were 16 years apart when they were married?Or, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who are 25 years apart in age?We need a strong male figure –an experienced, successful and, most importantly, well-balanced man.George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.Which is one of those things where, yeah, it happened, but asteroids also hit the Earth occasionally and we all still leave our houses without wearing full-body protective Plexiglass domes. He might be running from a bad relationship with a woman his age. It's great how you guys are on the same emotional level, right! It's the emotional version of going from breast buds to boobs! If he had a nasty breakup with (or for older men, a nasty divorce from) someone in his demographic, there's a good shot that's why he's with you — someone who, ostensibly, can't hurt him. (Wrong.) He's in a different generation than you; he shouldn't be a decade behind emotionally.
