And there's the physical knowledge too."Men who have been in long-term relationships learn a lot about women's bodies," says Spurr As you age, so will he, but he'll always have more wrinkles and grey hairs than you do. "If a guy looks good at 40, he's probably going to stay that way for a while," says Kerner"He's bound to have some baggage and it may make him untrusting," says Dr Pam."But if his idea of heaven is an all-nighter at a club, walking home to the sounds of the dawn chorus, and yours is a bottle of red or two with friends, then your different social goals will be a problem," says Spurr"Much is made of young men's virility, but it doesn't really do much for you as a woman if he's too quick to orgasm," says Kerner."Yes, he can go another round but who's to say the next time won't be over just as quickly?"If he's had a lot of sex partners, he's far more likely to be carrying an STI too."
