Age is but a number well unless its bordering on the ridiculous like Ronnie Wood 61 and his g/f who is 22, ok so I am jealous of the bugger. But if you are happy then that's what counts, so enjoy being happy girl !
There is nothing wrong with dating an older man; I have dated at least five. I don't know how old you are so it's hard to say if it is acceptable or not in your reagard. I am in my late twenties, but started dating men over forty in my early twenties. I find older men to be more mature, more settled in their life and more sophisticated them younger men in my age group. I prefer men in their forties; although I have dated some in their fifties. After a couple of fifties I decided that was too old for me and went back to forties.
If you are young and want a family a man in his forties is a more likely candidate then a man in his fifties. A man in his fifties will have already had his children as well as grnadchildren; and he won't want any more. I also discovered that a man in his fifites is too set in his ways and not that flexible or compromising. I say go for it if you are getting your needs met and don't worry about the age difference. Besides, to him; you will always be his younger woman.
I have always dated older men. In fact I am 30 and my husband is 43. If the two of you get along and treat each other right, then there is nothing wrong with it at all. Have fun and enjoy each other ; )
When I was 16 my friend started going out with someone who was 26. They were a really good couple, but it was a little weird. But then someone else I knew started going out with someone 20 years older than her! THAT was wrong.
In your twenties, there's nothing wrong with going out with someone older than you. It's mental age that makes the difference. Don't worry about it.
If you have found love, go for it. But as a woman who is married to a man 10 years my senior, if you do end up together, there will come a day when that 15 years will make a difference in the dynamics of your relationship. For instance, my mom is 7 years younger than my dad and they are getting to the point when she is the one taking care of my dad. He's 79 with health issues and even though she is 72, she has a young spirit and wants to travel. Unfortunately, her choices are limited because of his health. Still, you can say, "screw the health," do what you want and take your chances like they did last year...they travelled to South America and took a cruise down to Antarctica. A pretty brave thing to do, I think. So, go for it, just realize some of the future limitations if it goes in that direction. Good luck! Joelle
It depends on whether your interests are compatible and if you can fit in with both your groups of friends. He may have friends in their 50's while you may have friends in their 20's, not so easy to blend at times.
So if older men can date and marry younger girls why is it that it is now okay for older women and younger guys to date/marry?Is it just a quick flame? Or a interesting conquest? What is in it for the younger guy...
I am curious as to why it is wrong. I do agree that is there is much more to a relationship than looks. What if you are 5 ft 11 woman and do not feel comfortable dating a 5 ft 2 man? Why is it shallow? Isn't a...
